Married, at the residence of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Hanback, in Bonaparte, June 9, Miss Allie M. Hanback and Mr. Geo. B. Johnson of Ft. Worth Tex., Rev. James Welch officiating.
The bridal party entered the parlor promptly at 8:30 and took their places beneath a floral bell suspended from an arch of evergreen. The ceremony was witnessed by quite a number of relatives and friends of both parties. Among those from a distance were Mr. and Mrs. W. R. Bell of Whitesboro, Texas, Mr. and Mrs. T. H. Johnson of West Point, Mr. I. Detwiler of Moravia and Mrs. Geo. T. Ward of Chicago. Telegrams of congratulations were received during the evening from Ft. Worth and Denison friends. At 9 o'clock the guests were invited to the dining room to partake of the supper which the heavily laden table afforded. All departed at 11 o'Clock wishing George and his wife good night, and hoping to see them next day, as the guests were invited to a reception at the residence of the groom's parents, Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Johnson
