when they met in Osceola and were united in marriage by Rev. B. F.

many friends in the community, as he formerly resided here. Miss
Porter is known by practically everyone in this vicinity, as she has
been a teacher for several years and has been postmistress here for
the past two years, and we feel that we are not exaggerating when we
say that every acquaintance of hers was her friend. She was a great
worker in every undertaking and a great booster for anything that was
elevating to the community. She will be greatly missed, especially in

feel that it would have been far better for the community to have
gained Mr. Boling as a citizen rather than losing Miss Ida. They will
make their home at Vermillion, Kansas.
