A wedding that will be of much interest to the people of Medicine Lodge, is that of Miss Mary Chapin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Chapin residing east of this city, to Mr. Harry Clark of Wichita, Saturday, November 3rd, at the Congregational church in Kansas City. Miss Chapin is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Chapin and grew to womanhood here and was very, very popular in the social circles of the younger set. After completing her education in our schools she entered the Wichita College of Music, graduating in piano last spring. It was during her study at this place that she met Mr. Clark and their romance gradually ripened into love, naturally, culminated into marriage at Kansas City, where the bride was studying flute at Horner's Institute. Miss Chapin is a talented pianist and has more than pleased her hearers in many recitals. She has scores of friends who will never forget her loving ways and charming manners. The groom is a stranger to the people of Medicine Lodge, but we understand he is a young man of integrity and wisdom, and is to be congratulated on securing Miss Chapin as a companion through life.

The marriage ceremony under the Episcopal service was very beautiful and impressive. Mr. Field is one of Barber county's most favorite sons and a young lawyer of exceptionally good qualifications. He was brought up in this county and counts his friends by the score. He is at present connected with the law firm of Beardsley, Gregory & Kirshner of Kansas City. His strict honesty and close application to business has won him a name of which he may feel justly proud. The bride is one of our fairest daughters.

Promptly at 7 o'clock p.m. the prospective bride and groom appeared before the officiating minister in the parlor of the neat little house of Mr. O. H. Dunbar, and in a very fitting and neat manner Rev. C. H. Burleigh pronounced them husband and wife, according to the ordinance of God and the ceremony of the M. E. church. After receiving the congratulations of relatives and friends, the latter of whom to the number of thirty or more had gathered to witness the auspicious event, and new bride and groom led the way to the supper table which was loaded down with all the delicacies and substantial eatables which mother Dunbar known so well how to prepare. Just as they were about through supper Klinck's Cornet Band, of Hazelton, appeared upon the scene and rendered some of their choicest music, and soon the boys were surrounded by bride, groom, parents, and friends, and invited into the house to partake of the wedding banquet. To say that the boys enjoyed it highly, and did ample justice to that splendid supper, but family conveys the idea. Those who have been out with a band on similar occasions know that the boys are always good hands at the table. After supper was over music, song, repartee wiled the hours away until towards the noon of night, when the band rendered some more good music and all the guests left for their homes, wishing Mr. and Mrs. F.

Owens, of Sun City, officiated at the ceremony. The wedding was a characteristic one from the fact that both parties are mute and deaf and the vows were taken by means of an interpreter. Uncle Milt, as he is known throughout the entire county, is one of those good natured, whole souled men that enliven a community and he concluded to make this occasion an old-time picnic. Accordingly 200 invited guests were present, which, by the way, included the whole neighborhood, and one of the best dinners ever spread in the county was served. The old settlers of the northwestern part of the county were well represented and it goes without saying that they had a good time calling up reminiscences, incidents and adventures in the early days when the buffalo and the mountain lion held full sway. And in this Uncle Milt was equal to any of them; he had as much experience of pioneer life as any man in Kansas, and is a pretty good man yet. That Sunday's gathering is one of which he can well feel proud and those who attended have every reason to be thankful for the royal entertainment. When it comes to counting friends none can county more of them than Uncle Milt Clements. We are indebted to Commissioner H.C. Walker for an account of the day's festivities.

He is recognized as one of our most substantial citizens and is respected by everybody.

The boys around the Court House tell a good joke on Judge Lacy concerning this marriage.

After a little hesitation and evident embarrassment, the couple informed His Honor that Judge Brady had been engaged for the occasion. There were several spectators in the room and if Judge Lacy would have invested in a box of cigars just about that time, he could have avoided a great deal of sport at his expense.
