On Thursday, January 14, Miss Agnes Brisbin, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. L. P. Brisbin, of 859 Twenty-first street, and Arthur Yarnell, of Nealmont, were united in marriage by Rev. John H. Daugherty, at the Methodist parsonage in Harrisburg. Both young people are well known in Tyrone and have a host of friends who extend best wishes and heartiest congratulations. The bride for a number of years has been one of the efficient trimmers at Mrs. Logan's, now Miss Socin's millinery store on Pennsylvania avenue. The groom who is employed by the Pennsylvania Railroad company as a boiler maker, is a splendid young man in every way. They will go to housekeeping early next spring. The Herald extends best wishes.
