Mrs. Frank Mason entertained in a delightful manner on Saturday last in honor of Miss Edith Brooks, who is soon to become the bride of Horace Seelye, of Elyria. The dining room was decorated in yellow and white, the very beautiful and unique centerpiece being composed of yellow chrysanthemums, which concealed small electric light bulbs, and lilies of the valley. Candles furnished the other lights for the room. Miss Brooks was presented with a handsome oak pedestal by the hostess and guests.

Plans Of 25 Years Ago Followed In Celebration

Eighty relatives and friends of Mr. and Mrs. Horace Seeley called at their home 225 Wooster street Sunday afternoon, on the occasion of their silver wedding anniversary. Many gift bouquets gave a festive air to the home, and the Misses Harriet and Marion Seeley assisted their parents in greeting the guests.

Mr. and Mrs. Seeley (Edith Brooks) were married in Windsor Canada by the Reverend Camerou at the First Baptist parsonage, June 6, 1912. The wedding was to have been solemnized here, but owing to the death of Judge Hinman during the night of June 5th, the probate office was closed, and the young couple was unable to secure a license. The wedding bouquet which was ordered 25 years ago from Hecock Floral Co. was delivered for Mrs. Seeley to wear yesterday.

An interesting feature was that Mrs. Victor Reese, Mrs. Esther Harding and Miss Nina Seeley who were to have served the guests as the wedding, had the original plans been carried out, were present yesterday to serve guests at the silver wedding anniversary. White tapers in silver candelabra decorated the tea table. The candelabra is an heirloom in the Chambers family, Mr. Seeley’s mother having been a Chambers.

Out of town guests were Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Paddock of Oberlin, Mrs. Archie Sartwell of Washington D.C., Mrs. Esther Harding of Olmsted Falls and Mrs. Seeley’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. Joseph H. Brooks of Ridgeville.

Mr. and Mrs. Seeley and family are active in affairs at the First Baptist church, and Mr. Seeley has been employed with the Day Hardware Co., for a number of years.
