Pretty Miss Emily Marvin's marriage
to Roy Somers will take place about
the end of April, the date not having
b<>*;n as yet selected. This will be a
very quiet, occasion, as Mr. Somcra is
In de*»p mourning at present. It will
be a home wedding and only a few of
the most Ir.timaf friend* will be pres
ent. Miss Marion Marvin will prob
f.bly be her sister's ma id of honor, but
none of the detail* are e.r yet fully

Davis Will be married in that month
of roses and brides.
Miss EUelka Wllllar. whose engage
ment to Lieutenant Max Garber. United
State* army, was announced this week.
will b* married In September, and as
her home is in Sausalito her wedding
will have the picturesque setting of the
quaint little church, which is within
a stone's throw of the pretty Wllliar
oottage. There is a pleasant custom,
which prevails in Sausalito, of having \
the decoration of the church done en
tirely by the girl friends of the bride,
who labor valiantly In gathering the!
most beautiful ferns and other greens
which flourish on th.c hillsides. p.nd with I
a profusion of blossoms the Interior
of the little building is made a veri
table bower. The same friends then at
the wedding enter the church In a body,
just before the bridal party, gowned
tn the daintiest of soft-hued costumes,
carrying flower*, and are seated in the
choir stalls. •
Another wedding of the . future la
that of Miss Pickering and Julius !
Kruttscnnitt • Jr.. which it is said will
not be celebrated until next year, but
which may be an event of next fall.
There are rumors that the Twenty
second Infantry, which v has been stai
tioned here for the past year, ' is to
be ordered away next fall, and there
is ground for more than a suspicion
that this will cause other announce
ments during the next few weeks which
will culminate in wedding* in the sum
mer or fall. There are- a number of
bachelor officers in this regiment, and
they have been most hospitable and
charming during their stay. Army' life
has been "shown by them" in the most
favorable light, and it is said that eey
era! of \u25a0 the prettiest and most attrac
tive girls in and around San Francisco
will go away as armr bridge when the
regiment departs for the East. Alaska
or the Philippines— wbtrever the for!
