lor. A Strange Wedding Tour
Something approaching the novel if
hot tho unique, in tbemodo of wedding
tours has been introduced by a young
resident of Coos county.
Perhaps it was btcauso tho condition
of tho roads made tho uso of hi auto
mobile impossible. Probably his renton
was that he was above steamboat nav
igation on the North Fork of thoCoquille
and possibly it was his desiro to intro
duce something now.
Whatever may havo been his motive,
the strange exploit, his host of congrat
ulating friends were surprised to see
him on the day after bis weddiog board
a saw log and betake himself, perhaps
to a rummer clime to spend tho first
happy days of wedded bliss in solitude,
the most peculiar feature of hie depart
ure being that be forgot his bride of yes
terday and left hor to tigh for bis return.
,As he baa not yot been heard from
we can but wish him a joyful honey
moon, but we hope that be' will find that
he has forgotten something and return
to hia lonely bride.
