Was the Wedding of !VJr. Voder and
Miss Samsei.
hast evening in the Kirs- Presbyterian
church one of the very .prettiest
weddings ever witnessed in
Fairmont occurred, wnen .miss Anna
Lee Samsel became the bride oC Mr.
Lynn Emerson Yo'ler. The altar
was completely incased 211 white
cloth which formed rfin attractive
background for Florist Ed. Hall's
decorative efforts. A profusion of
ferns and palms was massed on
every available space, a large number
of vases held myriads of pink
and white carnations. From invisible
wires pink and white satin rit>bons
were festoiJned and caught
gracefully with small bunches: of
carnations. A number of white candles
were prettily shaded in pink,
while ribbons of pink tulle were everywhere
draped, and frc-Lp the
chandelier immediately over the altar
were suspended lovely bride's roses.
The effect here was specially charming,
hut the entire decorat've scheme
won many words of admiration
f.ong before the time for the corn
meneement of the ceremony the
church was packed to the doors with
a throng of fashionably dressed people.
The bridal party entered
Iiromptly at S:30 and proceeded up
the aisle to the soft strains of Lohengrin
wedding march, as rendered
by Professor MacArthur on tlie-harp,
with clarionet and violin accompanirnent.
Messrs. John Hughes and R. C.
Miller, Harry Engle and E C. Steniplo.
W. N. Engle and-Jair.es Shinn
came in pairs down the clor.li covered
and ribbon enclosed aisle, and
were followed in turn by the bridesmaids,
Misses Ethel Fleming and
Louise Potter, and Nell Cochran and
Clara Boydston; the maid of honor,
Miss Edna Trickett came nexr alone,
and was followed by Master George
Irwin, little nephew of the bride, who
acted as ring bearer. Pie wa:> followed
in turn by the bride on the
arm of her brother-in-law, Mr J. W.
Irwin, who gave her away. They
were met at the chancel by the
groom and his best man, Mr. Howard
Thayer, of Grafton. Rev Stoet/.er.
pastor of the church, was awaiting
them, and using the impressive
and beautiful ring ceremony, he pro

man and wife. The bride, leaning*
on the arm of her husband., was folio
wed by the rest of the parly in the
same order as before, and entered
carriages awaiting' at the rear door,
and were driven to the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Irwin where the mother ;yul
sister of the bride reside, and an informal
reception was held for '.he
wedding party and immediate, friends
and relatives.
The bride: was dressed in white
crepe do chene over silk, marie en
traine and carried a shower bouquet
of bride's roses tied with streamers
of white tulle. A tulle veil completed
a lovely costume and her appearance
called forth many compliments. The
maid of honor was gowned in pink
crepe de chene with white bar. and
carried .white roses, while the maids
wore Dolly Varderi gowns of pink
and whitp flowered mull with large
white picture hats with ties of white
tulle and wreaths of pink roses, and
carried pink carnations. These costumes,
made exactly alike and in con
trast to the maid of honor's pink
gown and the bride's gown of white,
were surpassingly pretty. The little
ring beaver was in white and carried
a silver tray on which reposed the
emblematic ring.

CHICAGO. Ill- June .9.?The strieut
tone of an alarm clock which
a often had aroused her from clreams '
f happiness in the early-' morning,
are the signal last evening, for Nora'
alloway, a Uaukegan girl, to jump
I Li-J i.zivz i xx iiii triiui u i_v_? cte
of misery.
The girl harl set the alarm fcr S
'clock. for at that hour she thought
lien Jackson, whom she loved, was
a marry another. She wished to
ie at the exact moment when he
as chksping the hand of his bride,
'aking the clock she walked out to
lie pier and waited. She had written
farewell note to her sister and was
irepared to . tile. Slowly the little
lock ticked off when she should
nish the last seconds of her life,
'lie alarm sounded, and before it had
eased its clamor, the young woman
eaped into the water. But try as
he would, she -could not sink. Her
kirts buoyed her up, and her attempts
o get her head under the water were
u vain.
Captain Wangera, light house tettler,
heard her splashing and hurried
o the rescue. After the woman was
aken from tlie water she learned that
er alarm clock was two weeks behind
