Grocer Johnson Very Unsuspectingly Becomes
a Benedict.
Mr. G.D. Johnson and Miss Edna V. Roberts were married at the Palace Hotel parlors Wednesday at midnight, Rev. Chas. Hazelrigg performing the ceremony which joined them in wedlock. The wedding would have occurred earlier in the evening had the night passenger not been late. Mr. Johnson went to Perry on the evening train to meet his bride, accompanying her from Perry, going immediately from the station to the hotel parlors where they were quietly married in the presence of witnesses only.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Robert of Schoolcraft, Michigan, where Mr. Johnson became acquainted with her. She was a teacher at Schoolcraft and a favorite in society. THE ENTERPRISE takes pleasure in bidding the bride welcome to Mulhall, and trusts they will always find it pleasant to live here.
The groom is also a native of Michigan, but strayed from the bleak north to try his fortunes in the sunny south. About three month's ago he came to Mulhall and purchased the store of C.S. Brown & Co. He immediately enlarged the stock and he has now one of the neatest and best stocked groceries in Mulhall. He is popular and well liked and is laying the foundation for a successful business career. The new couple will occupy rooms for the present in the rear of the store. THE ENTERPRISE offers hearty congratulations to the happy couple.

The Editor a Benedict.
At 6 o'clock Sunday evening, September 16, 1901, at the home of her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Fitzpatrick, Miss Bessie Robert Kelly was united to marriage to Thomas Butler Woosley. The officiating clergyman was Elder Charles Hazelrigg, supply pastor of the local Christian church and editor of the Oklahoma Christian. Only the parents, sisters, brothers and grandmother of the bride, and the parents and sister of the bridegroom were present. Immediately after the ceremony supper was served.
So far as telling our readers who "we" are, it is deemed unnecessary. The bride has grown from young girlhood to womanhood but a few miles from Mulhall, and there found, wooed and won by Mr. Woosley.
After a four-years' residence in Mulhall as publisher of THE ENTERPRISE, the bridegroom needs no introduction. If the number of good people who have offered us kindly congratulations this week is a criterion, we have an abundance of good, loyal and faithful friends.
"We" are at home to our friends at our residence, the late Van Aken home, after November 1, 1901.

Mr. Charles Fraser United in Marriage to
Miss Mary Estus
Married, at Oklahoma City, O.T., Friday, October 25, 1901, Miss Mary McCleland Estus to Mr. Charles Albert Fraser, both of Mulhall.
The bride, Miss Mary, eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. James J. Estus, who reside on their splendid farm just north of Mulhall, is well and most favorably known in Mulhall and vicinity. She received her education here in the Mulhall schools principally, and attended St. Joseph's Retreat at Guthrie one year. She comes of a splendid family, is bright, intelligent, and active in church circles and society, and will, THE ENTERPRISE predicts, make Mr. Fraser a wife of whom he may well be proud of.
The bridegroom is a young business man who cast his lot among us here at Mulhall about two years ago; embarked in the drug business for himself and has been eminently successful. In his business ventures he has been backed by energy, ability and business sense. He has had his ups and downs like all of us, but withal he has come through all right. He is well-liked, a prince of good fellows, and will make, we feel sure, a dutiful and exemplary husband. THE ENTERPRISE takes special delight in extending to this young married couple its most earnest wishes for a long, happy and prosperous wedding life.

Here Mr. Elliott wooed and won her for his wife. There's very little use for THE ENTERPRISE to say anything introductory of the bridegroom.
