On Tuesday afternoon, Jan. 30, 1912 at four o'clock, there occurred in the Wesleyan Methodist church at Houghton the marriage of Mr. George Sprague and Miss Miriam Churchill, both students of Houghton Seminary. Because of the fact that Miss Howelett of Iowa and Miss Yorton of Houghton could not go to Africa as missionaries as was intended, Mr Sprague and Miss Churchill consented on short notice to take their places. It was only about a week before the wedding that it was known that a change in plans might have to be made, and only a very few days before it was certain.

The church was prettily and simply decorated for the occasion in green and white. The middle section of pews was reserved for the immediate relatives and friends of the bride and groom. The ceremony was performed by the pastor, Rev. D. S. Bedford, assisted by Prof. H. W. McDowell. The best man was Mr. Chase Benjamin of Haskinsville, N. Y., the maid of honor was the brides's sister, Miss Abbie Churchill. The bridesmaids were the Misses Florence Yorton, Verna Hanford, Miriam Day and Lura Miner. The ushers were Ward Bowen, Floyd Hester, Clair Beverly, and Harry Ostlund. Miss Ella Hillpot played the wedding march.

During the evening the Young People's Missionary society gave an informal reception in the College Building. The program consisted of songs and addresses by President Luckye, Rev. G. H. Clarke And H. J. Ostlund.

Mr and Mrs. Sprague left on the five o'clock train Wednesday for New York there to be joined by Mr. and Mrs. E. L. Elliott, sailing Thursday, Feb. 1.

The best wishes and prayers of teachers and students and friends in Houghton go with Mr. and Mrs. Sprague and Mr. and Mrs. Elliott on their long journey across the sea that their way may be prosperous and their work sucessful.-- From the Houghton Star for February.
