A QUIET WEDDING
A Happy Couple Made One by Justice Allen
A very quiet wedding was consummated at the residence of G. M. Mason, the jeweler on Monday, evening Aug. 15.Indeed, so quiet was the affair kept, that not an inkling of it leaked out and it was not until Friday evening that the fact of the wedding was made public.The contracting parties were Mr. O. W. Skinner and Miss Flora B. Wheatley, both of whom are well known in Loveland, and vicinity.Miss Wheatley came here some months ago from Longmont, and went into business with her parents in a millinery and notion store.
She at once became very popular among the young folks of the town, and received a great deal of attention. Chief among those who sought to win her favor was O. W. Skinner, and after a brief but ardent courtship, Miss Wheatley capitulated.
As they both wished to witness the conclave, it was agreed that the ceremony take place at once, and Mr. Skinner took a trip to the county seat on the date started, procured a license, and in the evening the ceremony was performed by Justice Allen, and with only Mr. and Mrs. Mason as witnesses.The happy couple took the train to Denver on Thursday morning and returned home on Friday evening, when the marriage was made known.
