Miss Erma Naeve Becomes the Bride
of Mr.' M. P. Renfro on Friday
Last at Custer, Wyo.
Wedding Was a Quiet One, Mr. and
Mrs. George Naeve Being the
Only Ones Preienft.
The news of the marriage of Miss
Erma Naeve to Mr. M. P. Renfro
which occurred last Friday at Custer,
Wyo., came' as a complete surprise to
the friends of the young cojiiffile, lisre,
in Denison. While their most .intimate
friends knew that the happy event
would probably take place before the
holidays they hardly expected that, it
would occur so soon.
Mr. Renfro, together with Mr. Geo.
Naeve, left Denison last Wednesday
for Sylvan Lake, S. D., where Mrs.
Naevo and daughter, tyiss Erma, have
been spending a few weeks at this
.popular summer resort. The wedding
•was solemnized at the Methodist Epis
copal church at Custer Friday after
noon, the pastor of that church offlci
ating. It was a quiet'affair, only Mr.
and Mrs. Naeve being present. Follow
ing the ceremony the happy young
couple departed for a two weeks' hon
eymoon trip to Hot Springs, Lead and
Spearflsh. Upon their return to Den
ison they will make their home with
the bride's parents until the residence
which Mr. Renfro is building in North
Denison is completed.
Neither one of the young people
needs an introduction to the people of
Denison. The bride is the youngest
daughter or Mr. and Mrs. Geo. Naeve,
and was born and reared in Denison.
She received her early education in
the public schools in this city gradu
ating from the high school with the
class of 1909. After graduation, she
attended Ferry Hall near Chicago' and
graduated from that institution in
(1912. In the fall of' 1912 she attended
the State University of Nebriaska, and
it was there that she became acquaint
ed with Mr. Renfro. She graduated
from' the university in the spring of
1914. Since completing her college
work she has remained in Denison and
has been one of the most -popular mem
young lady, of pleasing 'personality
Iters of the younger set. She is a
and is most capable.
Mr. Renfro was born and reared at
'Peru, Neb., where he attended the pub
lic schools. After graduating from the
high school lie attended the State Uni
versity of Nebraska. He was promi
nent in the social life of the university
and took an activc interest in athletics..
iAbout two years ago he came to Deni
son and lias been engaged in contract
ing and engineering. He is an ag
gressive youftg man, full of ambition,
and doubtless will make a success in
his chosen work.
The Rdview joins with the many
friends of the young couple in extend
ing them congratulations and wishing

The Three Friends.
Answering the question, "Who were
the 'three friends' mentioned by Wbit
tier in his poem, 'Tent on the Beach,'
written about 1887, the Philadelphia
Press says:
"The 'lettered magnate lording o'er
an ever widening realm of books' Is
certainly James T. Fields, the poet
publisher and critic the 'dream born'
philosopher is supposed to be Ralph
Waldo Emerson and by some Wblttier
himself, and 'one whose Arab face w$$.
tanned by tropic suns audboreal frost'
is Bayard Tay|or."
Instinct and Reason.
"Instinct" is the generic term for all
those faculties of mind that lead to the
performance of actions that are adop
tive in character, but pursued without
iiecessa?* knowledge of-the relation of
the means employed and th» ends at
tained. 'HlWhson" is usually applied
to such..acts as are -consciously .per
formed with some particular end in
view. Of the tw-o, instinct would seem
to be the more perfect, since It seldota
goes wrong, whereas the missteps of
