Appleton - Lorg

B.S. Appleton and Miss Alice Lorg were married at the Baptist Church at Eddy Sunday night by Rev. W.W. Dornian. One hundred and fifty invitations were issued and there was a large party in attendance. Many handsome presents were received. There is little doubt now but what Nardin will have a cotton gin next year. Over one hundred acres so far have been pledged with no effort to speak of to canvass the township. The 400 acres asked for will signed before it is time to begin planting and then the men to build the gin will be also be forthcoming. We have heard of several little patches of cotton being raised within 10 to 13 miles of Nardin, but from the fact that the cotton had to be hauled to Perry to market it, the small patches have been only experiments, but they have been successful enough to show the people that cotton can be made a paying crop in this locality.

Shaw - Davis

TWENTIETH CENTURY WEDDING
Married, January 8th, 1901, in the parlors of the St. James Hotel, at Winfield Kansas, Mr. L. A. Shaw of Blackwell, O. T. and Miss Davis of Lamont, O. T. This match was quite a romantic affair. Mr. Shaw is the book keeper for the Oklahoma Construction Co. The brides paternal sire is working on the grade and Miss Davis was working in the commissary. Mr. Shaw soon learned to love her, and the affection was reciprocated. But there was still an obstacle to be overcome; for Mr. Davis, who had evidently forgotten the days of his own youth declared that he would shoot the first man who came to ask him for his daughter. In order to avoid the threatened catastrophe. Mr. Shaw decided to marry the girl first and ask her fathers consent afterward so he secured a team and the couple started for Ponca City at 6 o'clock in the evening, arriving there about two o'clock at night. From here they took the train for Winfield, where they were married, returning to Lamont the next day, and we suppose, secured the usual parental forgiveness. Mr. Shaw is well known and has many friends here, with whom we unite in wishing him and his bride a prosperous voyage oe'r life's sea. - Lamont Dispatch.[No Kay County application]
