Judge Herrick and Mrs. Woolly Steal March on Friends--Marry

Charles E. Herrick judge of the Moffat county court, and one of the most popular young men in the county, and Mrs. Catherine F. Woolly, the well known and popular daughter ol Judge and Mrs. R. W. Finley, stole a march on their friends Sunday night, journeyed to the Congregational church parsonage and, sending Cupid in ahead of them, timidly approached the parlor, where Rev. Horace F. Mann spoke the words that made them man and wife. Judge Herrick and his most estimable wife are among the most prominent of Craig’s residents. It is indeed fortunate for them that they evaded their friends, for members of the charivari crowd certainly would have reminded them of the fact that a marriage had just taken place. Judge Herrick and bride left Monday morning for Rawlins, being piloted there by the bride's brother, William P. Finley, and boarded a Union Pacific train for Denver. Their honeymoon will be spent partly at Exira Iowa, where Judge Herrick’s parents reside. Mr. and Mrs. Herrick have the well wishes of a host of friends for a long and happy married life They plan to return to Craig in about three weeks.

Note: Parents of Charles E. Herrick were Julius Earl "Boy" Herrick and Jessie Louise Wilcutt.
