John Sweeney gave his parents and friends a surprise Sunday when he came home for a visit bringing a wife with him. His parents had not heard of the marriage which took place at the court house in Enid, Oklahoma, April 11, a second marriage being performed at St. Joseph's Cathedral at Oklahoma City, Oklahoma June 14, 1910, Rev. B. Mutsaers officiating. Mrs. Sweeney was formerly Miss Orena Esther Brown of Chicago, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. W. Brown of that city, and she was very favorably impressed those who have met her here. John travels for a Chicago tobacco house and has his headquarters at Oklahoma. He is a son of Councilman and Mrs. M. Sweeney of this place and is a young man who stands well wherever he is known. The congratulations and best wishes of their friends are extended to Mr. and Mrs. Sweeney. They will make their home at Oklahoma City after visiting here for several days longer.
