Clemens – Clark Marriage

ClemensClarkMiss Ollie Clark, of Lock Springs, and Charles Clemens, of this city, were united in marriage at the home of the bride on Christmas evening. The wedding was a very quiet one and its occurrence was known only to a few persons. A few days after the wedding the groom returned to this city, while his bride remained at her home until preparations could be completed for taking up their residence in this city. Charley kept his own counsel in the matter and but very few persons knew of the wedding. However the news got abroad today and now the groom is busy accepting the congratulations of his friends.

Within a few weeks Mr. and Mrs. Clemens will be at home in this city.

Mrs. Selke said that a thorough search of the premises failed to detect any gas escaping and she further says that she believes that an attempt was made to chloroform herself and her children.
