AW i iAv The rid McCaughna-Webster. The wedding of Miss Mae Webster and Mr. George 13. McCaughna took place Wednesday afternoon, at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. O. F. Webster, on East Exchange street. The wedding was made entirely a home affair and in all the details of the preparation, from the decorations of the rooms to the quiet travelling dress in which the bride was married, simplicity was the feature aimed at, and attained. At four o'clock the bride and groom, accompanied by Miss Flo Webster, sister of the bride, and Dr. J. B. Dowd igan, took their places before the bay window in the west and there, in the shaded and mellowed light of the after noon sun, their pastor, Rev. Carlos H. Hanks, pronounced the words which declared them man and wife. A simple but impressive form of the ring service was used. After Ihe ceremony Mr. and Mrs. McCaughna took the evening train for Toledo, from which city they left via one of the lake steamer routes for Maokinac Island. They will visit, the Soo and then continue their lake trip around to Milwaukee and Chicago be fore returning home. After September 6th they will be at home at 309 North Water street. Both Mr. and Mrs. McCaughna are among Owosso's most popular young people. The bride, both as a school girl in the Owosso schools and later as one of the teachers in the same, has made no small number of friends, and the same is true in church, Eastern Star and other society circles in which she has been an ever welcome member. Of the groom but the gonial, friendly qualities of the well-liked justice do not need to be recalled to the mind of any one. A young but careful official, one of the leaders in his political party, he is also one of the .most prominent work ers in Masonic and other social circles as well. Their many friends unite in wishing them all possible success and happiness, and even before the wedding ceremony was over, telegrams from triends and many substantial reminders in other forms of the good wishes of the donors were received at the house, where only the relatives of the bride and groom were present. The Times adds its best wishes to those of other friends. The out of town guests were Mrs. Dr. W. W. Nichols and daughter, of Ann Arbor, Mrs. Louisa Wright and Miss Emma Spoor, of Detroit, Mr. and Mrs. Archibald McCaughna and Mr. and Mrs. John D. McCaughna, of Byron, Mr. and Mrs. T. M. Euler, of Bancroft, and Mrs. P. P. Bilhorn and Miss Kittio McCaughna, of Chicago. Sh:awassee Pioneer Picnic. The Shiawassee County Pioneer Soci ety held its annual picnic at Caledonia Park, yesterday afternoon, with an at tendance somewhat smaller than usual, tho there was still a goodly number of the old veterans of a primeval warfare present. A number of the picnickers mot on the grounds before dinner, but the program was not begun until half past one in tho afternoon. Mr. J. M. Fitch, of Durand, president of the soci ety, acted as chairman. Mrs. A. H. Parkill, of Owosso, filled the post of secretary. After a brief but appropriate speech by the chairman, Mr. Fitch, a poem was recited by Mr. Pratt, of Durand, which turned the minds of the listeners back ward, as one would infer from the title, "In the New Country." Hon. Jerome W. Turner, of Owosso, showed once more that he has the power to make as interesting an address as any set of pic nickers would ask to listen to, and short speeches were also made by Col. Moyses, Judge Turner, Emory L. Brewer, of Owosso, and Rev. Riley Crawford, of Byron. The program, tho quite in formal, was heartily enjoyed by those present.

PHILLIPS, 218 West Exchange street, OWOSSO, - MICHIOAM, THE RIGHT KIND. Some styles of Glasses look well on. some people while other styles look better on other people. There is a good deal of rcience in selecting and adjust ing frames. I often hear my customers say that they cannot bear to wear glasses because they look so horrid. Every pair they have ever tried on was unbecoming to them. I believe that I can select glasses that will be becom ing to every one I have made con siderable study of the different styles and their effects upon different faces. Some look best with Oval Springs, some with Straight Springs, some with Bar Springs. Some look better with Rim less glasses while others look better with the rims. Spectacles are becom ing to some taces while eye glasses suit other faces. In furnishing you glasses I give you the benefit of my experience in selecting different styles. I will promise to make your glasses look stylish and becoming. F. B. HOLMAN, SflKNTIFIC OPTICIAN, OWOSSO, MICH, none I 80 1 iooDy
