Hi Jean, I found a Loren Craig Brooks, b. March 18, 1885 who was born in Sprague, Lincoln Co., WA and lived there until after 1918. He appeared in a Census (didn't write down which one) with his wife Arza.
Then I checked Washington Secretary State Digital Archives and looked under Loren Brooks and the index to his marriage license appears. Then you click on the image icon and there it is! They were married in Spokane County. Hope this is YOUR Loren!
