BROXAM - BENNETT

MAQUOKETA BUSINESS MAN WEDS POPULAR DES MOINES GIRL
Well, we had it guessed out all right and the hint we threw out thru the Sentinel last week, was based on facts profound. Hon. A. L. Broxam deserted the ranks of single wretchedness Saturday, when he was united in marriage to one of Des Moines most popular ladies. In the Des Moines Register of Sunday the following announcement of the wedding appeared together with a large photo to the bride:

Mr. and Mrs. J. M. Bennett of Great Falls, Mont., announce the marriage of their daughter, Pearl Harrington Bennett, to Mr. A. L. Broxam of Maquoketa, Ia., which took place yesterday in Chicago.

The marriage which took place at the home of the officiating clergyman, the Rev. G. A. Rapp, pastor of the First Methodist church is of widespread interest, both Miss Bennett and Mr. Broxam being well known over Iowa.

The bride is particularly well known in Des Moines, which has been her home for five years and where she has been director of dramatics in both East and West high schools and Drake and Des Moines universities. She is a graduate of the University of Iowa and Northwestern School of Oratory, affiliating with the Kappa Kappa Gamma and Zeta Phi Eta sororities. During the last year Miss Bennett conducted her own studio and just concluded a tour in which she managed, directed and played the leading part in "The Bubble" which was presented by New York players.

Mr. Broxam is well known in political circles, having served the state as senator from Jackson county during the Thirty-seventh general assembly. He is a graduate of the pharmacists department of Highland Park college and is engaged in the drug business in Maquoketa.

Mr. and Mrs. Broxam will sail November 1 from Los Angeles, Calif. And during their six months tour will visit Japan and South America, where Mr. Broxam will look after business interests.

Of course Al's many friends here are trailing the newlyweds up with congratulations, even tho he stole a march on most of them. He is one of our prominent business men and needs no introduction to the people of this city or country. He has served the city as a councilman, and as state senator labored hard in the legislature endeavoring to enact laws to further the interests of his community. That his bride stands high in social circles in the capital city is evidenced by the positions which she has held and the countless compliments accorded her by the people of her home city.

The Sentinel wishes Mr. and Mrs. Broxam a long life of happiness, and a welcoming hand will be extended by legions of friends upon their arrival in the Timber City.

CURTIS - DAVIS

MARRIED IN AS FEW WORDS AS THE LAW ALLOWS. - Maquoketa is the pretty Indian name of a town in Iowa. Near there dwelt the families of two farmers, Davis and Curtis by name. Matilda Davis and Ben Curtis were lovers, but stern and unrelenting parents looked with angry eyes upon their courtship, and when they eloped with a view to matrimony the girl's father overtook them and bore his daughter back to her hated home. Here she was kept a prisoner for some time until she attained her majority. In the middle of the morning of the day she came of age, she saw a chance to escape and ran bonnetless to the woods, through which she made her way toward the Curtis farm house, several miles distant. Her gown was torn by briers, and she was forced to take off her shoes to wade streams, but she pushed on and found her lover at work in a field about 1 o'clock. Young Curtis sent his younger brother for Justice R. W. Henry, at Maquoketa, and when the latter arrived the bride and groom were sitting on a fallen oak in a roadside grove. Justice Henry began to twit the young people upon their romantic surroundings, when the bride exclaimed: "Hurry up 'squire; father's coming!" "Rush it, judge!" shouted the groom. Justice Henry looked up the road and saw the bride's father riding down upon the party at furious speed. The old man was rolling along like a summer evening thunder storm, and Justice Henry hurriedly placed the lovers under the umbrella of matrimony, "uniting them," as the local paper says "in as few words as the law allows."

Mr. Gilkey and Miss Hazel Hansen were married at 12:30 Monday, at Winona, Wis., returning to her home in Whitehall Monday evening where they were met at the station by the entire population of the town, who was well supplied with all the requisites of a sincere welcome to a bridal couple.

Mr. Gilkey returned to Maquoketa Wednesday evening, to be followed by his bride as soon as a home can be found and prepared.

This is the beginning of an interesting romance. Mr. and Mrs. Gilkey having come to the store at about the same time, which we hope, will continue through the many years to come.

MAXELL - TAFT

Cupid Played Another One of His Mischievous Pranks

You just can't get the upper hand of Cupid, that wily little rascal always finding a way to spirit away his victims, tie 'em together with sinews of mistletoe and then leave them at the mercy of the sunshine and shadows of life. Last Thursday evening Miss Bernice Taft, daughter of Mrs. George Taft, and Mr. Myron Maxell, a well-known and highly respected Maquoketa boy, dropped into the J. C. Glaser home, wherein Rev. J. C. Morgan has apartments, and asked the accommodating pastor to make them one for life. The short but serious undertaking was soon over, and the happy newlyweds waved a mischievous goodbye and autoed to Dubuque, where they boarded a train for Cherokee, their future home. The bride is an accomplished young lady and was a senior in the M. H. S. the present year. She has lots and lots of friends and while she deliberately stole a march on them all, they readily forgive and are sending her numberless congratulations by the mail route. The groom is a graduate of our high school and recently passed his civil service exams for railway mail clerk and was immediately assigned a run out of Cherokee. We predict a life of happiness and prosperity for this young couple.

RINGLEP - CULBERTSON
AND HE STOLE AWAY AND CAPTURED A BRIDE
Carter Ringlep is married. No longer for him do the bells toll out a weird tone of single loneliness, but chime forth a glad ring of wedded happiness. Carter failed to tell his suspecting friends here just when the nuptial event would take place, but the fact leaked out that he had stolen to Clinton Sunday and on the following day accompanied his "very best girl" from her home there to Davenport where the ceremony was performed. The "very best girl" was Miss Lovene Culbertson, one of Clintons charming young ladies, who has made a host of friends here during her recent visits in the home of the grooms parents.

Of course Carter didn't tell us any of the details of the approaching event for fear we would "print it in the paper," but nevertheless we can safely say that the wedding was a quiet, but pretty one.

The bride is a young lady of splendid address and with charming personality and will be welcomed into the social circles of our city. The groom-well, we all know Carter. In business with his father, Adam Ringlep, he helps the acquaintance and respect of a legion of friends. A graduate of our high school, active in all lines of patriotic and welfare work. Carter has taken a most commendable step in choosing a bride, whose sterling character will insure his success and prosperity.

We don't just know, but we mistrust that the sly newlyweds slipped into town this morning and murried to their home on West Platt street, which the groom has in full readiness for his bride.

Best wishes-oodles of them to Mr. and Mrs. Ringlep, "them's our sentiments."

She is a graduate of our high school, and then entered Upper Iowa University and later attended the University of Nebraska. She then took a thorough course in music at the Chicago Conservatory and further instruction under private teachers. Mrs. Westridge possesses a wonderful voice which has been given exceptional recognition in the select musical circles of the country, she having spent several seasons in concert work, devoting her talent to the Y. W. C. A. work during the war.

The groom is part owner of one of Chicago's leading men's furnishing corporations, and spent two years in the service of his country, nearly all of which time he was in France.

After the wedding breakfast, Mr. and Mrs. Westridge left for New York, Boston, and other points, expecting to be at their home in Chicago after October 15, which the groom has in complete readiness for his bride. We extend hearty congratulations!
