WEDDING THAT WAS A POEM
Ceremony In Epic Introduced by a
Mlddletown (S. Y.) Pastor.
A genuinely poetic marriage was the
me at Calvary Baptist church, in Mid-'
dletown, N. . Y the other.;7 morning,
uniting Clarence . B. Crance, a young
business man of, Mlddletown, and Miss
Luella May Chirk, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. iBaac M. Clark. '
Rev. John A. Courtright, pastor of
the church, performed the ceremony,
which was nearly all in poetry, and
the service was so impressive that it
promises to become a popular fad with
those eligible for the ceremony. Mr.
Courtright only recently -assumed the
pastorate of the church, and his re
markable innovation in weddings has
been a decided hit.
