Of interest to many in this city was the wedding which last night united on of Hemet’s popular girls and a prominent business man of Los Angeles in the persons of Miss Jessie Belle Seely and Gustavus A. Axelson.

The wedding was a charmingly appointed on at the beautiful home of the bride’s sister, Mrs. J.J. Collins, East Chapman avenue, Orange, and was witnessed by a large gathering of friends and relatives of the contracting parties.

Promptly at 8 o’clock, as Mrs. O.G.

Mr. Axelson attended by C.A. Stilson, of Los Angeles, as best man, joined his bride at the improvised altar, where they spoke their vows before the Rev. J. Edward Cochrane, of Los Angeles, a cousin of the groom, after which they received the congratulations and best wishes of all present before leaving on their honeymoon.

Following their return to Los Angeles, Mr. and Mrs. Axelson hope soon to have possession of the beautiful new home which is being erected at 137 West Avenue 49, near Sycamore Grove.
