Luber, Mr. and Mrs. August (23 OCT 1906-13 OCT 1956) 50 Years.


Clara Paulus and August Luber were married in Prairie du Chien, Tuesday October 23, 1906. That all of the children might attend the Golden Wedding celebration it was held Saturday, Oct. 13.


Sixty guests attended the dinner which was held at the home of their son, Allen Luber. The table, decorated with gold streamers and yellow mums, was centered with a wedding cake. Bouquets of yellow mums were used throughout the house for the decorations. Open house from 2-5 was held in the afternoon at the August Luber home when many guests came to express their congratulations.


Following the marriage of the Lubers they lived in Grant County for several years. They then came to Clark County where they have been engaged in farming and Mr. Luber has been a highway employee for 22 years.


Mr. Luber was born at Bagley, December 7, 1880, the son of Augusta and Leonard Luber. Mrs. Luber, the daughter of Theresa and Matt Paulus, was born in Bohemia, Dec. 23, 1886. She came when a small child to America with her parents.


Both are members of the Lutheran Church and both have good health. Pastimes for Mr. Luber are hunting and fishing and Mrs. Luber enjoys reading.


The Luber’s grandchildren provided a corsage for their grandmother and a boutonniere of yellow carnations for their grandfather.


Present for the celebration were their three sons and families, Mr. and Mrs. Virgil Luber & children of Eau Claire, Mr. and Mrs. Ford Luber and children, Rice Lake, and Mr. and Mrs. Allen Luber and children, Loyal. The August Lubers have eight grandchildren and two great grandchildren. A daughter, Caroline is deceased.


Two of the original wedding attendants were also present for the anniversary. Mrs. Luber’s sister, Mrs. Oscar Carl and her brother, Tom Paulus, both of Prairie du Chein.

Ed. note: The following is the original account of the marriage of Mr. and Mrs. Luber, as it was copied from a clipping which they have in their possession. It is interesting to note the change in style of reporting which has occurred since that time.


August Luber and Clara Paulus were united in marriage at Prairie du Chein last Tuesday, October 23, 1906. After the nuptial vows were said and the tie that binds two hearts as one was over. The happy couple drove to the bride’s home in Crawford county, where a superb wedding dinner was prepared, and then back to Patch Grove, their future home. With our mouth full of wedding cake and our mind full of pleasant expectations for the bride and groom, we can say of a truth that here is an ideal couple for you. Both bride and groom are well known and highly respected. The bride is not only pretty, but industrious and accomplished, and with a loving heart, what more could you ask? So, for the groom we can say without fear of contradiction, that he is one of our best young men. Having known August all his life, we know him to possess the qualities of a perfect gentleman. Thanks to Dick O’Toole for the big Chicago cigar, and the groom for a hunk of the wedding cake. By the way, O’Toole and wife and Mrs. Philip Luber, who came from Chicago to attend the wedding, returned to their homes last Sunday.
