The marriage of Miss Mary Eva Whitford, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Henry Whitford, of Volga, Iowa, to Mr. Clinton William Humphry, son of Mr. and Mrs. W. K. Humphry, of Fayette, Iowa, took place at twelve o'clock on Wednesday, June 21st, at the pleasant home of the bride's parents one mile west of Volga, Rev. F. Q. Brown, pastor of the First Methodist Church of Fayette, officiating.

The bride was attended by her sister, Miss Marjoria Whitford, while the groom was attended by his brother, Ralph Humphry, of Fayette. Mrs. Max B. Bishop, of Choteau, Mont., sister of the groom, presided at the piano. The little daughter of Mr. Humphry acted as flower girl.

After a couple hours conversation Mr. and Mrs. Humphry departed for their home near Fayette, followed by the best wishes of relatives and friends.

These people are well known in both Clayton and Fayette counties, the bride having been a successful teacher in the city schools of Volga and Fayette. Mr. Humphry grew to manhood in Sperry township, but for a number of years has been a resident of Fayette county, where he owns a farm, and where he and his bride will be "at home" to their many friends after July 15th, 1916.
