Full Text

Another wedding with a military atmosphere about it was that of Miss Helen Isabel Skinner, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Mortimer B. Skinner, 725 Tenth street, to Lieutenant G. Ross Stewart, son of Dr. William T. Stewart of Chicago, which took place last Saturday evening in St. Augustine's Episcopal Church. Rev. Frank E. Wilson read the service. Miss Skinner wore a gown of beaded lace over silver tissue, and carried a shower bouquet of lilies of the valley, fashioned on a white lace fan of her mother. Mrs. J. Barret Scarborough of Evanston, as matron of honor, and Miss Roberta Skinner, a sister, as maid of honor, were costumed, in cream-colored satin frocks with large black tulle hats, and carried colonial bouquets of late summer blossoms. Mr. William T. Stewart, a brother of the groom, served as best man, and the ushers included Messrs. William Lawton and Roger McCullough of Wilmette, J. Barret Scarborough of Evanston and Paul Hastings of Pittsburgh, Pa. Following the ceremony, a reception for the guests was held in the parish house. The young couple left immediately for Camp Grant, at Rockford, Ill., but, at a more recent date, Lieut. Stewart has received orders to go to Fort Worth, Tex., with the National Guard units.
