(The Marmarth, N. D. Mail.)
Dr. W. L. Barbour and Miss Barbara DeLange sprung a surprise on their many friends Tuesday when they arrived on the Olympian from Aberdeen and announced themselves as Dr. and Mrs. W. L. Barbour.
Their many friends had been expecting the event to occur in June after Miss DeLange had completed her year’s work in the Parker, S. D., schools, and nothing was thought of the occasion when the doctor left here Saturday to accompany Miss DeLange as far as Bowman on her trip to Parker, and it was truly a surprise when they arrived home Tuesday announcing they had been married in Aberdeen.
The event is a very romantic one, and happening as it did at the opening of leap year, it is quite natural that the young people should be the subjects of considerable banter and pleasantry from their friends.
The ceremony was performed by Rev. J. W. Hyslop at the home of Mrs. Helen S. Ackley long-time friend of the bride, and was followed by a luxurious supper. The happy couple arrived at home Tuesday forenoon and that evening were banqueted at the home of the bride’s parents, the occasion being one of felicitation and happiness throughout.
The bride is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. P. I. DeLange, residents of our little city for the past year, Mr. DeLange being the founder and president of the Farmers’ State Bank, and is very popular among the large circle of young people, who have come to know her. She is a graduate of the Aberdeen Normal school, and was holding a position as teacher in the Parker, S. D. public schools, which she has resigned.
Dr. Barbour is a Vermont University graduate, and after taking several hospital courses, practicing medicine in the New England States and spending two years in Alaska in the government service, came to Marmarth last spring to take up the practice left by Dr. Bordwell. He is a very popular young man, making friends of all with whom he comes in contact, and his many friends are heartily congratulating him upon this momentous event.
The young couple will reside with the bride's parents until about the first of February, when they expect to go to housekeeping.
