THE WESTERN STAR, 25 August 1888
Marriage of
A Popular Young Lady Married at Springfield, Mo.

Mr. and Mrs. W. H. Clark received word this week, that their daughter Miss Waunie, had been married at the residence of her cousin at Springfield, Mo., on the 16th inst. to Mr. Chas. Smith. Rev Graff, a congregational minister officiating. There is some romance connected with the affair. Miss Clark left this city about three months ago to spend the summer with her aunt at Springfield, Mo., and during her visit there she met Mt. Smith, a railroad man, for the first time, and it being a case of "love at first sight" between the young people, they were not long in arranging matters between themselves for the wedding. The bride's parents here did not know anything about the happy affair until a few days after the marriage, and we dare sat they were greatly surprised, as well be many of Miss Waunie's friends here. The young couple have gone to Ft. Scott to live. The matter of setting up new hearthstones and founding new homes is a serious one in many ways, but
when the little blind god once throws his dart the case is a hopeless one.
