a prominent young larmer irom toe
northern part of Marion county. The

last Saturday and be married. White
was to come in on the California over
land and his intended expected to come
in on the Albany local from Portland.
By this arrangement Miss Storms' train
would arrive something more than an
hour before the train bearing the groom.
When Mr. White arrived in town Miss
Storms was not waiting for him. She
bad failed to make connections with the
her train, and did not arrive until after
the groom. As a reeult they did not
sncceed in finding one another until
nearly 11 o'clock. Notwithstanding th
lateness of the hour they concluded to
be married that night if a license and
minister could be procured. They ac
cordingly routed the county clerk out of
bed and when be found the predicament
of the young folks he consented to is
sue the license. The necessary papers
having been secured the bridal party
repaired to the home of Rev. E. 8. Bol
linger, who got np out of bed and tied
the nuptial knot. This occurred near
the hour of midnight, and this was per
haps tbe only "midnight marriage"
