Saum-Bolin

At Orton Wednesday of this week occurred the wedding of Miss Lota M. Bolin of Edmond and Mr. Earl Saum of Lenora.

The ceremony was performed by Probate Judge Sheely.

The bride is very highly spoken of and very popular with all who knew her at Edmond where she was grown from childhood.

"Babe" Saum as he is called is too well known to need any comment from us. He has grown from boyhood here among our people and is popular with all the young people as well as his seniors.

The young couple returned to Lenora last evening and will go to keeping house at once in the G. M. Winter property at the corner of Fulton Street and Kansas Ave.

The News joins with their many friends in wishing them all the joy and blessings of this life and may they be happy and prosperous as they sail along the matrimonial sea.

Sproul-Norrish

Glenn Sproul and Miss Mae Norrish were married yesterday at Logan, and left for a honeymoon in Colorado. By the end of the month they expect to be at home on the Sproul farm southeast of town, where they will farm.

These young folks are known to all here and are universally liked. The New Leaf joins in best wishes for their happiness throughout life's voyage.

From the Logan Republican we copy the follwoing story of the wedding: "The wedding of Miss Mae Norrish, eldest daughter of Dr. and Mrs. H. W. Norrish of this city, to Mr. Glen Sproul of Edmond, was solemnized yesterday morning at 10 o'clock at the home of the bride's parents, Rev. C. P. Broadfoot officiating, in the presence of a few invited friends and relatives. Immediately following the ceremony a wedding dinner was served.

The bride is so well known to the people of Logan and vicinity that any introduction from us would be useless. Here she grew to a beautiful womanhood, a graduate of the Logan H. S., later a teacher in the rural schools of the county. She then held a position as bookkeeper fot the Logan Farmers Union. Resigning here, she accepted a similar position with the Edmond Union, and she made good at both places.

Wile we are not personally acquainted with the groom, we hear him highly spoken of as a model young man and a farmer of the Edmond vicinity, and he is to be heartily congratulated in his choice of one of Logan's fairest daughters. the young couple will commence housekeeping at once on the farm owned by the groom's father near Edmond.

We wish them the best this life can offer in their marital relations.

Zimmerman-Sweet

The expected has happened. Thursday last Commodore Zimmerman went to the county seat and invested in one of those marriage licenses. That same evening he escorted Miss Lydia Sweet to the preacher at Lenora and then escorted her home again as Mrs. Zimmerman Junior. Both are well known to all here and best wishes of all go out for their future prosperity and happiness. We understand they have rented the Gerrish farm where George Dove was and will be housekeeping there a week from next Saturday.
