MARRIED ON THE STAGE...........Rev. Douglas Shouse attended the commencement of the St. Elmo schools at the opera house there last Thursday night, accompained by his daughter Miss Jennie, and had an interesting and romantic experience.
Just before the benediction the master of ceremonies invited Rev. Shouse, as a former pastor, to ascend to the stage, which he did, and after a short address to the six graduates---five girls and one boy---in substance the latter added: "If there is any young man present who wishes to make us all happier and to sympathize with this lone lad, let him come forward, and I'll make him a brother-in-law to the class. Robert M.
Hunt, a railway agent, thereupon arose, stepped to the front and was joined by Miss Grace Gruver, a graduate, and in a moment they were united in the holy bonds of matrimony with the beautiful ritual ceremony of the Methodist Episcopal church, in the presence of fully 500 people, not to exceed a dozen of whom had the slightest intimation of what was to occur.

It is an old and time-honored adage that the "course of true love never runs straight." This was verified in this place on Thursday last. A twain from the northern portion of our county, whose tender hearts had been penetrated to the depths, by cupid's arrow, named M.
Jeffers and Missouri Watt respectively, daughter of the late John A. Watt, deceased, came to town for the purpose of having their infinite love bound the tighter together with a hymeneal cord, that they (the twain) might "flop" as one solid "lump of happiness" through the rest of their existence upon this terrestrial globe without any fear of a severance by the intervention of others. After arriving here, the trouble become more visible. The parents of the girl were dead, and the clerk would not issue the license, she being a minor, but knowing that the aid of legal knowledge availeth much, they consulted a "young sprout of the law" immediately, and acting upon his advice, the young lady chose a guardian and after filling his bond, he wrote out his consent, after which the clerk issued the license, Uncle Billy Carter performed the ceremony and the two went home rejoicing.

TEETS-CARLSON WEDDING.
At high noon today a church wedding of beautiful appointments was solemnized by Reverend William W Fleetwood, in the First Episcopal church of the Good Shepherd, joining in the holy bonds of matrimony, Miss Merle Carlson, daughter of Mr J. L. Carlson of this city and John N Teets of Newton, Illinois.
In addition to the relatives of the bride, about fifty friends were seated in the church which had been previously decorated with a profusion of roses, sweetpeas and other fragrant blossoms. Promptly at 12 o'clock, the bridal party entered the church and proceeded to the altar, while Mrs Mary Young, the church organist, rendered the Mendelssohn wedding march.
The bride, a pretty brunette, appeared wonderfully charming in a prettily trimmed gown of grey charmeuse and wore a chic white hat. A diamond brooch, the only article of jewelry worn, was Mr Teet's gift to his bride. Miss Carlson carried a brides bouquet of white roses and lilies of the valley daintily tied with white satin ribbon Miss Eleanor Miller, as brides-maid, was daintily gowned in tan charmeuse with chiffon overdress and carried a basket bouquet of sweet-peas. Miss Miller also wore a becoming white hat. Mr Teets was accompanied by Sterling E Price, as best man. At the altar the bride was given away by her father, J. L Carlson.
Immediately following the ceremony the bridal party, accompanied by the bride's sister and brother-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. S. J Kaplan and children, were escorted to the Weber club, where a temptingly prepared wedding breakfast was nicely served in the private dining room. Appropriate toasts to the bride and groom were neatly spoken and fittingly responded to by the happy couple.
