* "Chas. Olson Married"
It doesn’t seem quite right for a fellow to skip out and get married and upon his return introduce to his friends, his wife. Well, we have it from good authority that Chas. Olson turned the trick that way and returned to Alfred with his bride Tuesday evening where he has a job of carpenter work. The wedding took place at Marshall, Minn., a nearby town to Minneota, the home of the bride, Miss Julia Johnson. We were unable to get the full particulars but we know he is married and his many friends at this place [wish] him and his wife all the joys and prosperity possible in this life.

* "The Bakkila Wedding"
Emil Bakkila and his brother, John, were at Napoleon Wednesday where Emil secured the necessary credentials whereby he will be united in marriage to Miss Tillie Weyrynen, a sister of Mrs. John Bakkila. When he had first returned from Napoleon Thursday morning, it was thought that he was married at that place but in the mail that evening invitations were received for the wedding on Sunday July 17 at 1 o'clock p.m. So we suppose the happy event will come off on that day.
