South Auburn - "Who is married?" was the question asked by a resident of Spring Hill, last week Wednesday morning, upon seeing nine carriages passing his home within a few minutes. But the bride and groom were wanting, and it only proved to be the leap year picnickers of South Auburn, on their way to Ackley's Grove to spend the day. The party consisted of Misses Mertle Dawson, Etta Winnans, Belle Gay, Allie Winans, Clara Winans, Mamie McMickens, Cora Tewksbury, of South Auburn, Miss Nellie Dawson, of Black Walnut, Miss Virgie Winans, of Meshoppen; Messrs. Lindley Place, B. Carter P.D. Overfield, of Auburn, Taylor, of Towanda, V.O. Snover, J. Snover, of Skinners Eddy, E. Sterling and O. Blackman, of Meshoppen. The company report an enjoyable time, the only non-enjoyments being a broken wagon a stop in the lake, a ride home in the rain. The ladies proved to be very good escorts and brave ones.
