Mr. Victor Martin as best man and Miss
Blanche House as bridesmaid took their
places under a beautiful white arch,
tastefully decorated with spri.,'8 of the
asparagus fern and from the center of
which was suspended a snow white
bell. The back ground of the arch was
white, decorated with beautiful ferns.
The room was otherwise trimmed in
pink and white. On the windows were
strings of pink and white hearts. In
the center of each window was a large
heart pierced with an arrow shot from
Cupid's bow. Beneath the arch, the
bridal party stood. The bride was
neatly dressed in a cream messeline
gown overlaid with gold beaded braid,
and in her arm there was a lovely bou-
quet of bride's roses. 'I he bridesmaid
was dressed in a white silk overnet
gown and carried a large bouquet of
bridesmaid roses With pleasant faces
the bridegroom and bride gave and
pledged their troth to each other, the
Rev J. N. McDowell, of the Presby-
terian church, officiating.
While the congratulations were being
extended Mrs. Brown rendered another
solo entitled "The Message

Flynn for Governor the Oklahoma con-

safe-guards of the people's rights would
be virtually repealed or disregarded.
