Old Fashioned Charivari
Tuesday's Tribune told of the marriage of Herman Reafleng and Miss Josie Johnson, that it was to occur on Wednesday afternoon at the Rev. Briggs home south of Glenwood.
The wedding took place on schedule time in the presence of 20 relatives and friends.
Then, that night at the home of the bride's parents Mr. and Mrs. Ben Johnson, there was a noisy old time charivari, 45 men making night hidcous with guns, cow bells, sleigh bells, circle saw, and tin pans.
A reception followed at the home, and 60 were present.
They will go at once to housekeeping on the groom's farm ten miles south of Glenwood.
