I ALL WANT IT KEPT SECRET
Carlisle ileDavilt Makes the Old
. .- Marriage-Licence Request.
Can sou keep it a secret?"
In lots of cases,tthis is tbe first ques
tion that is aked County Recorder, John
L. Henry, when he starts to issue a mar,
riage license. It in"l becaac the people
are too young lhat the) do not wish lo
have their names published, but it seems
that they are just desirous of keeping it'
a secret-. Of course a marriage license,
after it has been signed by the parties,
is a public document and by law, the
Recorder has no other alternate than to
turn it over to the various reporters.
Last week Carlisle N. McPaiitl, a stu
dent in the School of Engineering, asked
that his marriage license be kept secret
until Christmas. This was refused him
and he turned around, and left. A few
hours later he returned and said thatlie
would take it anyway. He was granted
a licene to marry Miss Agues Ilazrlton
of Marcelhie, JIo.
