"The flavor of soft sentiment and romance almost civilized which pertained to the village of the gentle Javanese crystallized in one instance very prettily. Never, probably, did two Javanese before make so long a bridal tour as a couple who were at the Fair, for it extended from Chicago to their home in Java. Had they but fallen in love and wedded a little earlier they might have made the journey twice as long, including the round trip. Not very imposing but very pleasant personages were the small couple in whose espousal hundreds of thousands of people felt an interest, for the affair was exploited in the newspapers and the hosts of visitors at the Javanese settlement wanted to see the bride and groom. The bride was but a girl and the groom little more than a boy, but they mature early in the distant land of coffee, and the two shown in the illustration felt themselves quite old enough for the responsibilities they were assuming. The bridegroom was a very proud and happy individual and did not hesitate to say so, and the demure little bride seemed quite as content as he. It was a great occasion in the Javanese Village where the wedding festivities were celebrated and the outside world was made heartily welcome by the hospitable little people. It was in the same spirit that the newly married couple allowed their photographs to be taken for the benefit of their American friends."
