Many beautiful and useful things were left as tokens of friendship and high esteem in which she is held by her host of friends. When these had been viewed by all, the much treasured "Hope Box" was procured and brought forth that all might see the quantities of table runners, dresser scars, center pieces and tatting and crochet and quantities of linens and other articles too numerous to mention. This interesting part being over, a dainty lunch of ice cream and four kinds of cake was served. Miss Nellie Fleming gave a reading in scotch dialect which was very suitable to the occasion as well as very amusing. By this time the guests became more spirited and for a few moments amused themselves by playing a short game when the scissors began cutting out patterns which were left as souvenirs with the bride elect with direction for use. The time being far spent the guests returned to the Campbell home for their wraps and after bidding farewell to Miss Orpha, with best wishes and extending thanks to the hostess for such a pleasant afternoon, all repaired to their respective homes.

Orpha was compelled to lead the team while the strong arm of Sabin lifted the buggy and they pulled thru. No damaged was done excepting a broken brace. They reached their destination in safety and Sabin returned home before dark.

*A very beautiful wedding was solemnized at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Marshall in Milford township on Thursday, March 15, 1917, at high noon when Miss Grace Marshall became the wife of Mr. Wm. Pody. The home was tastefully and beautifully decorated in pink and white carnations with fern leaves. The bride was attired in a gown of white crepe-de-chine with trimmings of Georgette crepe and gold bead and carried a shower bouquet of cream roses and lilies of the valley. She was attended by her sister, Ruth, who wore a becoming gown of pink crepe-de-chine with Georgette trimmings and she carried a pink and white bouquet of carnations. The groom made a fine appearance in the popular dark blue serge and was attended by his brother, Frank. As the strains of the wedding march "Narcissus" were played by Mrs. W. K. Dobler, the bridal party entered the parlor and arranged themselves where the solemn words wee spoken. After congratulations the guests were ushered into the dining room where an elegant three course dinner was served by the Misses Faye Abbott, Viola Brockelsby, Emma Koester and Bertha Koester.
The bride is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Marshall, possessing those sterling qualities of true womanhood, pleasant manners and jovial disposition which have won her the love of all who know her. Her many friends are numbered by her acquaintances.
The groom is the second son of Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Podney, residing in Denison and is known as a fine young man of industry, honesty and good character. The happy couple will reside on his father's farm just east of W. T. Huckstep's this coming year. May they be prosperous in bountiful crops and a wealth of happiness is the sentiment of Deloit.
*A beautiful wedding, beautiful because of its marked simplicity and solemnity, was held at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Albert Clark, of Runnells, Iowa on Sunday evening, March 11, 1917, at 6 o'clock when their oldest daughter, Alameda became the wife of Mr. Carl (Babe) Streeter of Deloit. The bride was gowned in beautiful blue crepe-de-chine very lovely in his simple straight lines and was attended by her friend Miss Nova Park, while the groom was becomingly clad in the much favored dark blue serge, being attended by Mr. Rollin Thomas. After the ceremony performed by Elder Henry Casting of the L. D. S. church and congratulations received, the party was served a dainty, delicious two course luncheon. A short time was thus passed in pleasant conversation then all repaired to the L. D. S. church where the evening services were appropriately enjoyed.
Miss Clark is the oldest daughter of the family and has been employed the past year in a doctor's office where she was held in the highest respect and esteem by all who knew her. She will be greatly missed by her unlimited number of friends but their loss is our gain and we are doubly glad to welcome such an estimable young lady into our midst.
The groom has grown to manhood here in Deloit and we can vouch for his integrity and strength of character and kind and pleasant ways. May the stream of peace and happiness be a continuous one and the bountiful flow of health and wealth be heirs to enjoy thru this life, is the sentiment of the entire community. These young people will be found at home in the Lloyd Winans home after March 25 and invite all friends and neighbors to call early and be sociable. They were the recipients of many useful and beautiful gifts from loving friends and relatives showing the high esteem in which the bride was held in her home. Her parents held a pre-nuptial shower on Saturday evening, March 10, for the near relatives and S. S. class when about thirty guests were present, each bringing useful gifts for the bride elect.

Denison Review, Wednesday, March 28, 1917
*At the home of Mr. and Mrs. Guy Martin, Sr. on Thursday evening , about thirty young people assembled for a farewell party to Miss Ella, who is soon to go with her parents to the new home in Minnesota. They spent the evening in games and music rendered by Mr. and Mrs. Martin, Misses McNeal and many others. A dainty lunch was served. Miss Ella was presented with a gold ring having a pearl setting by her host of friends, who regret very much to lose such a kind, lovable, honest, industrious, dependable young lady from their midst. She has been a ray of light and for good in the school room and her absence will mean a loss not only to herself but to associates and all who came in contact with her, but all are hoping, trusting and praying that she may return at an early date. In time to come as she looks upon her gift may these words bear the sentiment of each one; Round is the ring that has no end, That's like my love to you, my friend.
*The Willing Workers met with Mrs. Jim Abbott last Wednesday and spent a very pleasant afternoon in sewing while Mrs. Mauck rendered several selections on the piano.

Worley next week.
*Mr. and Mrs. Fred Neumann, of Boyer, arrived on the train at and ate dinner with Mr. and Mrs. Chas. Campbell, after which they departed on the 1:30 train for Denison to do some trading in the evening. While returning home the double-tree broke letting the horses free from their load and they began to run, dragging Fred out over the dashboard but he held onto the lines and stopped the horses at the top of the hill in the snow. They borrowed repairs and arrived home safely.
*Dale Cose and Dell Richardson made a business transaction whereby Mr. Richardson became one possessed of the little house and lot north of the store and Mr. Cose becomes possessor of the property where Mr. Richardson now lives. Mr. Richardson will move as soon as he completes his dwelling on the side hill, then Mr. Cose will occupy his new property.

*On last Wednesday evening, about twenty-five young people of Mrs. Bessie Myers Sunday school class repaired to the home of Mr. and Mrs. Silas Streeter to surprise the bride and groom.

Ice cream and cake were served after which all departed rejoicing and happy for such a delightful evening.
*These warm days are helping the frost out of the ground so that Mr. McNeal thinks he will be able to begin work on his bridges, which contract calls for work amounting to $18,000 in Crawford county.
