The Journal, of Alamosa, Conejos County, Colorado, of Sept. 6th, contains the following which we are requested to copy:

Last Sunday evening, at the Broadway Avenue parsonage, Denver, Rev. Edward Seldon officiating, P. D. Borden and Amanda J. Hewes, of Alamosa, were united in matrimony.

When "Dick" and his intended wife slipped away from their Alamosa friends late last week they did not, even to their intimate friends, hint that the outcome would be what it was. "Dick" is noted for being a sly old boy and he certainly fooled ‘em all; and as marriage is a proposition that only happens about once in a lifetime the couple had all the frills. The "best man" was Gilbert Hathway and the bridesmaid was Miss Addie Browning.

After the ceremony the couple and their friends selected the finest automobiles in the city and for several hours toured the town to their hearts’ content. The marriage of this popular couple was made more romantic by its taking place on the birthday of the bride.

They arrived home on Wednesday morning and were met at the depot by a host of friends, who just showered congratulations until the blushing couple became speechless (and Dick says his right arm is almost out of commission from hand shaking.)

Mr. Borden is one of the best known Rio Grande passenger brakemen on the system; he is courteous, accommodating and popular with the traveling public. His bride is a lady of high standing in the community, and the Journal extends congratulations.

The bridegroom is a son of the late Mr. Josiah Borden, of Berwick West.
