January 13 1911/2011

Fairdale - Dexter Very was elected State College [Penn State] football captain for the year 1911. According to the State Collegian, "the choice is a popular one on all sides, since Very has gained the admiration of his team-mates by his excellent work during the last two seasons, but has also been extremely popular through the college at large. Although only 21 years old, and thus one of our youngest captains, his ability has been sufficiently tested to enable us to predict for him a most successful career in the new position."

Forest City - Miss Margaret Kleinbauer, of Vandling and Edward F. Callaghan, of Forest City, quietly slipped away to Windsor, NY on Monday and were united in marriage. The affair was kept so quiet that even their intimate friends were surprised by the announcement, on their return, but all will hope that each successive New Years will be a milestone marking many years of happy wedded life for them. They will reside with Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Callaghan.

Franklin - Miss Julia Wheaton left last night for Pocatello, Idaho, where she will be employed in the department of domestic science in the Academy of Idaho.

This office, which carries with it not a little responsibility and labor, was filled during the last session by E. W. Lott, of Springville. Mr. Larrabee is business manager of the Susquehanna Transcript-Ledger, a man of wide acquaintance in the county, and a man deserving of the recognition which his geniality and ability merits.

Montrose - The great attraction at the Cnic Theatre, Jan. 18th, is the wonderful picture, "Buffalo Bill and Pawnee Bill Wild West Show." Manager Caruso says it's worth regular tent show prices to see, but 10 cents is the Cnic price. Bring yourself and a party of friends. Special music.

Susquehanna - One of the prettiest home weddings that has ever taken place here was solemnized last evening at the residence of Hon. and Mrs. C. F. Wright, when their daughter, Florence M., became the bride of Dr. James Hutton Curtis, of Patterson, N. J. The ceremony was performed in the reception hall, the room being tastefully decorated with white roses and similax. The music room was banked so heavily with Easter lilies that the orchestra was almost hidden from view. Tulips and jonquils predominated in the library, while the dining room was a bower of pink roses. The bride was becomingly attired in a gown of white satin trimmed with dutchess lace and wore diamond and pearl ornaments, the gift of the groom. She carried a bouquet of lilies of the valley and orchids. At the conclusion of the ceremony an elab-orate dinner was served by Caterer Mazetta, of New York City. After an extended trip the couple will be at home at Patterson after Feb. 1.

Royal, Clifford Twp. - The New Year's dance at Hotel Royal was largely attended and a very enjoyable time is reported. The next one will be Friday evening, January 13th.

Brooklyn - New Years passed off quietly in town with only one celebration and that at the corner of Turnpike street and Willow Avenue, when the husband began by insisting on his wife building the fire and the wife held that without kindlings or oil she could not build the fire. The husband used force and after submitting to some hard thumps and considerable hair pulling, the wife asserted her rights by hitting the lord and master of the house over the eyes with a stick of the wood that would not burn, cutting quite a gash in the tender flesh; then without as much as a Happy New Year greeting, she took the baby and left his bed and board and now there is a vacant house.
