   Miss Ida Porter and Mr. Cecil Boling surprised their many friends Saturday when they met in Osceola and were united in marriage by Rev. B. F. Lawler. Mr. Boling is a young man of excellent characteristics and has 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 school and church work. These young people have our best wishes and we 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.
