James Carrick and Lulu Spencer of near Sickles were granted a
license and were married yesterday by Judge Crum. And hereby lies
a tale. When the youthful couple applied the day before and asked
for a license the Judge refused to grant it on account of the
extreme youthful appearance of the bride. She insisted she was 15
and produced a written order from her papa granting her
permission to become Mrs. Carrick. Judge Crum informed her that
it was necessary to have her mama's consent also and furnished
her a blank to have her mother fill out granting her consent.
They returned yestrday with the permit properly signed up and the
Judge granted the license and proceeded to marry them. The groom
gave his age as 21.

Anadarko Evening Tribune December 23, 1902


Floyd Royer of Apache Review fame was a caller this morning and
we supposed he was visiting the capitol of the county on
important business and incidentally called on us fraternatly. We
thought that Bro. Royer was looking a little pale and had a far
away, longing expression of coutenance and acted nervous, but we
attributed it to the fact that he probably felt strange in a
large place like Anadarko. But we were fooled entirely. It wasn't
that at all that made him nervous The rascal was simply talking
to us in order to kill a little time and gain sufficient courage
to apply for a marriage license. He went direct from our office
and did the act, and we would never have guessed the truth had
not the lynx eyed reporter for the Tribune found the record of
the affair at the proper official's office. Well Bro. Royer,
here's hopin', etc.
