James Logan and Blanche Norbury Wedding

Jimmy Married in Khaki Uniform

James Logan and Miss Blanche Helen Norbury, both of Pinckneyville,
were married at the Baptist parsonage Sunday afternoon, the pastor,
Rev. I. E. Lee officiating. The ceremony was simple and impressive and
the affair very quiet, the bride's sister, Mrs. Mattie Anderson,
being the only attendant. There were no frills, veils or flowers, the
bride being gowned in a becoming dress, while the groom wore "not the
conventional black," but his khaki uniform. A wedding supper was
served the newly weds and the members of the immediate families and a
few intimate friends at the home of the bride's parents.

The groom is the only child of Mr. and Mrs. A. J. Logan of this city
and for the past several years carried the mail and drove the bus
line conducted by his father, and during that time made many friends
with the traveling public, who will join their host of Pinckneyville
friends in wishing them well. His bride is the youngest daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Walter N. Norbury and the only child in the parental
home and is a very estimable young lady.

The marriage of this worthy couple was a surprise to the majority of
their friends as the groom enlisted a few weeks ago to fight for
"Uncle Sam," and had been in St. Louis preparatory to leaving. He
came to this city Saturday evening and decided before sailing the
seas of warfare to embark on the canoe of mattimony. Mrs. Logan is
the first war brlde in this city, but the writer predicts there will
be others.

Mr. Logan departed Sunday evening for St. Louis where he joined his
company and left for San Antonio, Texas.

The Advocate joins their friends in extending congratulations and
wishing the groom a safe return.
