Dick Bohlken, of Akron, and Mary Gabel, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. M.
Gabel, of this city, were united in marriage on Wednesday afternoon at
the Presbyterian church manse, Rev. A. H. Comin, officiating. The
wedding was a quiet affair on account of the illness of the bride's
mother. The young people were attended by Miss Martha Gabel, a cousin
of the bride, and Albert Bohlken, a brother of the groom.
The young people left this week for their home at Akron, where Mr.
Bohlken is engaged in the livery business. He is a son of Siefke
Bohlken, of this city, and a popular and progressive young man. The
bride is a well known young woman of this city who has made many friends
while living here.
