On the evening of January 1, 1900, carriages conveyed a number of guests to the residence of Mr. G.W. Pettyjohn where a circle of friends and relatives from a distance were gathered. At 6 o'clock Cyrus L. Woolverton and Miss Vida E. Pettyjohn were united in marriage, Rev. Curtis E. Long officiating. The ring service was beautiful and impressive. The bride was elegantly attired in white. After congratulations and best wishes were extended to the happy pair, an elegant supper was served in the midst of general good cheer. The Mulhall band, of which Cyrus is a member, announced its arrival by soft strains of music, after several selections were rendered, G.W.

The many Mulhall friends of John E. Woods, who was formerly night operator at this point, will be pleased to learn of his recent marriage, which occurred on New Years day. The boys here are waiting for a chance to extend congratulations. We clip the following from the Guthrie Register:
The boys at the depot, as well the people of Guthrie in general, were surprised on learning of the marriage of our popular day operator, Mr. J.E. Woods, to Miss Sinclair, of Coffeyville, Kas., on New Years eve. Miss Sinclair is a prominent and accomplished young lady, and Mr. Woods is quite a favorite among the citizens of Guthrie. Each received a handsome New Years present, but in all fairness to the fair sex, we will have to say that Mr. Woods received the more handsome present of the two. May each succeeding year cement more firmly those ties which are most endearing this side of heaven.
Born, to J.D. Farres and wife on January 11, a fine boy.
Born, to Ed Rowland and wife on January 6, a bouncing baby boy.
Born, to Mr. and Mrs. Frank Shoemaker, on January 4, 1900, a girl. Congratulations, Frank.

Married in the Hawkeye State.
A few weeks ago, THE ENTERPRISE told about B.C. Moritz, the popular German farmer, living just south of here, making a mysterious trip to the state of Iowa. We also told his many friends here to look out for a surprise. Now we can tell you something: On January 24, 1900, in the city of Dubuque, Iowa, at the home of the bride, Mr. B.C. Moritz and Miss Emma Buesch were united in marriage. The bride is a charming lady, educated and refined, and we bid her a hearty welcome to Oklahoma. The bridegroom is - oh, well, everybody in this country knows him, and knows him to be one of the jolliest and best fellows on earth, and wish him much joy.
Mr. and Mrs. Moritz returned from Dubuque on the noon train Sunday, and on Monday night a large number of Mulhall friends drove out to help celebrate the event by having a grand ball. It was a happy event.

A marriage epidemic seems to have broken out within the last few days, and it seems to be confined in druggists. Mr. W.B. Scott of Scott & Norris seems to have been the first victim. In the Chatsworth, Illinois, Plaindealer, of June 1, we find the following:
On Monday, May 28, at high noon at the home of the bride, Mr. and Mrs. S.B. Furr, south of this city, occurred the marriage of their eldest daughter, Miss Lollie B. Furr, to Mr. Wilbur P.

A Subject of Charity.
Some two weeks ago a family by the name of Patterson, who had been visiting relatives living at or near Pawnee, stopped to camp for the night I the grove of Mr. Estus, living one mile north of Mulhall. During their stay a little son, 8 years of age, became very sick. The family was very poor and unable to buy food or medicine. William Terrell, living a half mile north of town and almost across the road from the campers, went to their assistance, and on learning of the little fellow's case, went to Dr. Childers, who went to see him regularly and gave him medicine, but the fever had secured too strong a hold on the little boy. He was buried in Rose Lawn cemetery south of Mulhall, Mr. Terrell advancing the money for the expenses of burial. On Wednesday, Mr. Terrell called on the citizens to help him bear the load. They gave freely, and this is as it should be. The home of the family is in Texas, whither they are now going.

Mulhall, Oklahoma, Friday, November 9, 1900
A Magnificent Wedding.
It is universally conceded that all of the hospitable families in Oklahoma, that of our friend, Mr. Moritz's, heads the list. Imagine you see the child on a Christmas morning beholding his stocking full of candy; the little boy with his first pair of red-top boots; the first circus, etc. All these are scenes of joy beyond description. Of such the writer was reminded when entering the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Moritz. Mr. M., with his 4 by 8 foot grin, and his "How do you do, Mr. So and So, welcome, welcome," & c, & c. Why the cause of all this merriment? This vast concourse of people? This Delmonico table loaded down with the best in the land? The minister is here! Ah, here it is! The marriage of his daughter, Emma, to Mr. Fred Winters. You need not wonder at Mr. M. appearing as the happy boy with red-top boots, over the acquisition of so worthy a son-in-law as Mr. Winters
At precisely 1 o'clock p.m. while the wedding march was played by Miss Laura Hughes, the bridal couple appeared and were made husband and wife by Rev. Rehorn, one of our popular ministers.
After the usual congratulations we were invited to file out into the dining room where a table was loaded down with everything on earth, and very soon the waiters were bringing in just that much more. As Mr. Burford, our banker, call it (the same story): "Too much, too much to eat. The writer, after eating about three-quarters of hour, trying to eat everything, simply abandoned the task and closed the deal by eating five more pieces of the best pumpkin pie that you ever ate. The present were numerous and fine.
The readers no doubt would like a mention of those present. Did you ever, on a warm day, stand before a bee-hive and attempt to count the bees as they were in and out of the hive? The writer was unable to secure the names. Suffice it to say, it was the biggest wedding the writer has ever been permitted to attend.
We predict for this couple a life's pathway strewn with flowers, entertwined with love, harmony and prosperity.
P.S. Among the valuable presents we saw a 500-pound dinner bell. Ask Mr. Winters about the significance of the bell.
