      Newspaper Article - Wednesday, January 20, 1904 Pulaski Democrat - Pulaski, New York - Miss Harriet Davis Becomes Bride of Mr. Arthur Clark - Last Thursday was not such a day as a bride would select for her wedding day but the day was set and the weather, pretty stormy, came, but the wedding celebration in which Miss Harriet E. R. Davis and Arthur Edward Clark were joined in the bonds of matrimony came off just the same. The home of the bride is one of those picturesque farm residences where the gentle touch of the warm summer air and showers bring forth all the beauty and charm of nature, and where winter brings the characteristic of a rural home into evidence. Miss Harriet was a student of Pulaski school and well-known among our village people, always admired, and it was while her duties in school brought her here, that Arthur Edward Clark, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Louis J. Clark cultivated, or gave way to the love passion which cumulated in the beautiful wedding event of last Thursday. The bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry Seymour Davis, called about two hundred of the friends of the young people to participate in the joyous event. The home was most becomingly arranged, the parlor was a picturesque room. On the west side was a banked arch of evergreens. The dining room was tastefully decorated and lighted by many candles or tapers. The hour for the ceremony was set at half-after four, but late trains and non-arrival of many friends whom were sure to be there inclined the delay which gave them time to arrive and put on the wedding gowns. At the strains of Mendelssohn's wedding march, played by Miss Grace Becker, of Mexico, the ushers, Bertrand H. Waite, of New York, a college mate of Mr. Clark. and Warren L. Combs, of Syracuse, passed through an aisle formed by two white ribbons, held by Miss Bessie Taylor and Miss Alice Richardson.. of Mexico. They were followed by Rev. T. T. Davies, of Sandy Creek. The bride's maids, Miss Emily L. Clark, of Pulaski, sister of the groom. and Miss Mary Davis, sister of the bride, Miss Helen Elizabeth Jones, little niece of the groom, bearing a silver tray with the wedding ring, the groom and last the bride, in a beautiful white silk gown, with veil, resting on the arm of her father, took place as before the bank and under the arch and the ceremony was most impressively recite. The bridal party retired to the dining room and a wedding supper was served, which included many dainties, of which the company, numbering about seventy-five partook. A view of the many rich gifts was indulged in with much pleasure. Nothing seemed to be lacking to evidence the love and esteem of their friends. The groom's gift to the bride was a sunburst of pearls. Amid showers of rice and a cyclone of good wishes Mr. and Mrs. Clark left the home for Richland where they took the train for Syracuse, from whence to go to their home in New York, where they will soon be in the merits of happy housekeeping and at home to their friends after February 15. Many friends from out of town were present, notwithstanding the severity of the winter weather. Among them were, Mr. and Mrs. Louis J. Clark, Mr. Mrs. Frederick A. Clark, Miss Emily L. Clark, Miss Bertha Holmes, Miss Cora Hunt, Mr. and Mrs. O. V. Davis, Mr. and Mrs. J. L. Hutchens, Rev. J. B. Felt, Miss Maude Potter, Mr. Edward Kelley, Mr. Harry Klock, Mr. Clarence Klock, Miss Bessie Davis, Mr. Robert Davis, Miss Dora Naylor, Mr. B. G. Seamans, Pulaski; Mr. and Mrs. C.
