CUPID TRUE MARKSMAN Numerous Weddings Usher in the Month of Marriage. Frank M. Chapman, eldest son of Mrs. F. M. Chapman, widow of the late colonel of Governor Gillett's staff, and Miss Bertha Mae Norton, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan L. Norton of Sedalia, Missouri, were married on Thursday afternoon, June 3rd, at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. Thos. R. Jurney, at 2121 Michigan avenue, and have started East for a three weeks' wedding journey. On account of the recent death of Col. Chapman, the wedding was extremely simple, only members of the immediate families being present. Rev. W. G. Conley, pastor of the Govina Christian Church, officiated. Three brothers of the groom's father, C. C. Chapman, J. S. Chapman, and Columbus C. Chapman, were present. C. C. Chapman was a witness on the young man's marriage certificate, which was a peculiar coincidence, as he had also been a certificate witness for Col. Chapman, the young man's father. The home of Mr. and Mrs. Jurney was very attractively decorated with potted plants and cut flowers, with the general scheme effected from a profuse admixture of white carnations. The bride was unattended, and was gowned in white silk, trimmed with veil lace, carrying a bouquet of lilies- of-the-valley. Mr. Chapman met his bride while en a visit to Riverside, where Miss Norton was acting in the capacity of general manager of a branch store of a Pasadena concern. She began her her career in business in the establishment of Joseph Israel of Pasadena, and soon proved herself to be such a capable business woman that she was placed in charge of the business which Mr. Israel owned In Riverside. She has been living for the past three months with her sister and husband, Mr. and Mrs. Jurney of Los Angeles. Frank Chapman is well known here and of late has been engaged in managing the affairs of his late father at the splendid Palmetto ranch in Covina, where he and his bride will make their home upon their return.

That time travels onward and the old order changes is brought to mind this week through the announcement of the marriage of Miss Bess Virginia Conlee, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. I'.. Coulee. Residents of Covina will remember her, not as the charming young lady she has become, but as a bright-eyed miss, the daughter of one the first proprietors of the Covina Argus.

Prominent Covina Democrat Turns to Grand Old Party.—Lemon Tariff Converts Him. Democratic Contra! Commit,teeman Welch, our. most active adherent to the second party, has been "born again." He has presented himself before tho wheel-horses of the Republican ranks and has surrendered hit* sword. When Senator Flint made the assertion that the Republican party would increase the tariff on lemons, Welch said at that time that If this became a fact he would renounce the other party and Join hands with tho ! Republicans. When tho despatch 1 came from Washington this week that j the trick had been turned, he linme- jdlately revived his old promise and matriculated on the proper side. Welch is being congratulated. Tho following touching tribute has been handed in: Full twice and more, wan lie made sore | When Hryan finished second; Hut. still for that, a dlmmycrat, lie always would be reckoned. Hut when a hint from Mr. Flint Stirred up hln loyal feelings. He took the tariff lemon home. And ate stem, pulp and peelings.
