Chance Meeting Followed by Renewal
of Old Vows.
Many of the older residents of the
city remember Mrs. Fanny L. Rey
nolds, -who in the early days of this
city -was a leader" in the society of
what was then the village of Akron.
Her maiden name was Fanny Lutz.
The following story of her roman
tic marriage to Col. Edwin P. "War
ren of Washington, D. C, which is
from the Cleveland Plain Dealer,
will be read here with interest.
"At the home of Mrs. S.E. Herwig,
No. 210 Oakdale" St., there was sol
emnized lust evening the marriage of
a couple who were lovers nearly 50
years ago. An estrangement arose,
the lovers drifted apart, each mar
ried, each was bereaved, and, finally,
by merest, chance, they met again,
the old love "was renewed and the
wedding of last evening followed.
- "Col. Edwin P. "Warren of "Wash
ington, D.C., and Mrs. Fanny L. Rey
nolds of Cameron, Mo., were the
groom and bride of the wedding
which forms the concluding chapter
of a half century's romance.
"The ceremony was performed by
Dr. William H. Rider of the Euclid
Avenue M. E. church, at the cosy
little home of the groom's sister,
Mrs. Helwig. Col. Warren is in his
6ixty-eighth year, while his bride is
but a year his junior.
"It was in 1851, when Akron was
but little more than a village, that
Col. AVarren visited there and met
Miss Fanny Lutz. They became at
tached to each other and their en
gagement was announced. A lovers'
quanrel occurred and the -v illage
gossip had tfo record the fact that
the son of George Reynolds, the pro-

prietor of the Empire house, stood
high in Miss Fanny's favor. Young
AVarren left Akron after the engage
ment, going to Detroit, Mich.; where
his parents made their home.
"Reynolds and Miss Lutz were
married and in the course of a few
years removed to Cameron, Mo.,
which was then considered almost
on the frontier. The courting of
AVarren and Miss Lutz became his
tory to all but himself and his bride
that was to be. The war broke out
and AVarren was among the firht to
oirer his services to his country. He
te ed during the entire war, receiv
ing a severe wound. He was a col
onel when mustered out.
"At the cloe of the war Col. AVar
ren went to AVashington and there
married. In 1874'his wife died, leav-.
ing him one son. He was well sup
plied with this world's goods and
has led a retired life ever since re
siding in Washington. He is well
known in AVashington and he is a
familiar figure in the great functions
of that city of society and social
"Col. AVarren has a love for travel,
and on a trip to the west last fall
stopped by accident in the town of
Cameron, Mo., and there met, by the
merest chance, his former sweet
heart. This happened last Septem
ber. Old scenes were recalled and
old times talked over. He learned
that Mrs Reynolds was a widow.
her husband having died five years
before. The difference which seem
ed so great at their parting could
hardly be recalled by either. The
old love sprung up in the hearts of
both. "Col. AATarren returned to
AArashington, but did not forget.
Letters passed between the two with
considerable regularity and fre
quency, "until," as the colonel ex
pressed it, "we decided to be mar
ried and go on together." This plan
was quickly arranged, and Mrs. Rey
nolds met the colonel at the homeof
his sister in this city yesterday.
"The ceremony was a very simple
one, only the immediate friends of
the contracting parties being pres
ent. A wedding supper followed,
during which the bridgroom and
bride recited stories of their early
courting without the usual embarass
mant of a newly married couple.
The colonel and Mrs. AVarren will
remain in the city for a few days and
then go to Cameron, Mo., -.where
they will make their home for a
time. It is probable that they will
make Washington their permanent
"In appearance Col. AVarren would
attract attention anywhere. He has
a military carriage, which, in spite
of his years, he still maintains. His
hair is very white and he assumes a
professional style of dress. The
bride seems to have enjoyed every
1 year of har sixty-eight, and there is
a merry twinkle in her eye as she
tells the story of her youthful love."

In commenting on the victory the
Columbus Citizen says:
"The Mayor fairly broke the rec

He signed the ordinance
granting the Citizens' Telephone
company a franchise, which insures
the breaking up of the present mo

connections not only in Columbus,
but with many towns in all parts of
the state, and a material reduction
of rates. The Mayor in signing this
ordinance has rendered valuable ser

"Too much credit for this happy
ending of a long telephone war can
not be given Mr. Harry Critchfield

earnest, intelligent efforts have re

Columbus the merits of tlie Citizens'

The Akron & Cuyahoga Falls Rap

property owners for right of way.for
an extension of their line from a
point near the plant "of the Akron

By this extension, the time con

shortened at least 20 minutes. This
saving of time is a feature of the en
