      SOME MORE OF CUPID's VICTIMS.
      "Many of the people of Beaver will be surprised to hear of the marriage of Miss Nettie THOMAS of Beaver, and Mr. Roy BROWN, of Lockwood. The ceremony took place at the home of J. R. THOMAS, in this city, on Monday evening, November 14th, 1904. Judge H.D. Meese spoke the words which "Unite till death shall separate".

      While the affair was not entirely unexpected it came as a surprise to the friends of the contracting parties just at this time. The bride is a sister of the Herald editor and is well known to most of our readers, having resided in Beaver county the greater part of her life and being engaged in school work until the past three years.

      The groom is a resident of the east end of the county and also needs no introduction to our people. He is well and favorably known by most of them. We feel we are not anticipating too much when we say we are joined by all who know them, in extending best wishes for a long, happy and prosperous voyage on the matrimonial sea. The Herald extends a sister's love to the happy young couple and wishes them all the blessings this life affords."
