TEE TOPEKA DAS.Y STATE JOTOWAIi SATURDAY EVENING. JUNE 14,1913-
An engagement of state wide Inter
eat was made known today, when
former Senator and Mrs. Charles Cur
tis announced the approaching mar
rlage of their daughter, Permelia, to
Lieutenant C. P. George, jr.
The news was told to a company of
friends who were guests at luncheon
given by the bride-to-be, at the Curtis
home, 1101 Topeka avenue. The table
was beautiful In a decoration of red
rambler roses, and the place cards
were in the shape of little cupids. The
names of Miss Curtis and her fiance
appeared on cards at each plate. Those
who sat around the table were: Miss
Eva Smith. Miss Isabel Smith, Miss
Dorothy Wilson, Miss Julia Larimer,
Miss Relta Updegraff and Miss Curtis.
After the luncheon Miss Curtis was
hostess at an afternoon tea to which
a company of friends were asked.
The announcement is a complete
surprise to Miss Curtis' friends, as she
has succeeded in keeping the secret of
her engagement from even those with
whom she is on the closest terms of
friendship. The news is of much more
than local Interest, for the father of
the bride-to-be has been known In
National political affairs for the last
twenty years, as congressman and
later United States senator. Miss Cur
tis has spent a good deal of her life
in the east, as a student at Wellesley
college and with her parents in Wash
ington during the sessions of congress.
She is a young woman striking In ap
pearance and gowning, accomplished
and of marked individuality. A year or
two ago she made a tour of Europe in
company wth her mother and her sis
ter. Miss Leona Curtis.
Lieutenant George, Jr., is an officer
of the Second Field artillery, stationed
at Vancouver Barracks. Washington.
The date for the wedding has not
been chosen, but It will be sometime
in the late fall, and will be an event
of paramount interest for that season,
for Miss Curtis was brought up in
Topeka, and her father Is a native To
pekan, having long been active In pub
lic affairs, serving successfully as a
practicing lawyer, county attorney and
