Married by Rev. O. M. PENNOCK in Osceola on last Thursday, Mr. Nicholas FURRER and Mrs. Alta NUSSBAUM. Mrs. NUSSBAUM was the daughter of Oren WILLIAMS. She is well and favorably known having lived in Clarke county most of her life. Mr. FURRER is a farmer and owns a good farm. He is well worthy the bride he has won. They will be at home to their many friends on his farm six miles south west of Osceola.

The following was clipped from the Creston Morning American:

Miss Nellie Grace DeLONG and Mr. P. J. JENKS, of Osceola, were united in marriage at this place Thursday afternoon, the ceremony being performed by Squire Harry C. SMITH, at his office at 2:45 o'clock. Both parties reside in Osceola where they are quite well and favorably known. The bride is the youngest daughter of Mrs. Frances DeLONG and is well and favorably known as she has spent the greater part of her life in and around Osceola. The groom is the oldest son of Mrs. Phil McCARTNEY and has lately with his partner, Roy DeLONG, bought out the RARICK livery barn. They will at once begin housekeeping in rented rooms over Jarl Bros. Store. We join their friends in wishing them a long and prosperous life.
