GRIMES, GEORGE M. ~ DAISY BENNETT

A SOLDIER’S BRIDE.

A Young Woman Who Went From Kansas to Manila to Marry.

A Leavenworth (Kan.) Correspondent says: Miss Daisy Bennett, daughter of Colonel and Mrs. C. E. Bennett of Fort Leavenworth, was married Jan. 5 to Lieutenant George M. Grimes of the Tewntieth infantry at Manila, Philippine Islands.

Miss Bennett has always lived at Fort Leavenworth, and it was here that she met and fell in love with Lieutenant Grimes. Their courtship began before the war with Spain, but since that time the lieutenant has been much away from the post, and the lovers finally decided to be married though they were 10,000 miles apart.

Lieutenant Grimes could not leave his post, so his sweetheart made the long journey from here to the Philippines to marry him. She left Leavenworth last November and arrived in Manila Dec. 15, taking passage on the transport Sheridan. Miss Bennett is one of Leavenworth’s fairest daughters and has long been a well known and much sought society girl. Her beauty is of the blond style, and she has blue eyes and light golden hair. Her father is a retired officer of the regular army, having served through the civil war.

Lieutenant Grimes is a son of Major George L. Grimes of the Second artillery, who commanded the famous Grimes battery in Cuba during the war with Spain. Lieutenant Grimes was sergeant of Troop B, Second cavalry, from June 1896, to July, 1898. He was then appointed a second lieutenant in the Twentieth and promoted to first lieutenant last March.
