Lots of excitement
Excitement ran riot for a short time last Wednesday when it was reported in Craig that the wires to the lower country had been cut and that a bank robbery was about to be staged in Maybell. Sheriff Hampton made a rush trip to the scene of the trouble and found the telephone wires cut in two places, but nothing was developed to show there was trouble in Maybell. On Thursday morning it was discovered that the lines to Maybell, Axial and Great Divide had also been cut. Rumor has it that a sheep killing (by low country cattle interests) is pending.
Two highly popular young people of Steamboat Springs were united in marriage Tuesday evening when Miss Sadie Taylor became the bride of Albert Hoyt Shaw with Rev. Joseph Darling officiating. The bride is the popular teacher of the sixth-grade in the Steamboat Springs grammar school and was last year in charge of the school at McGregor. The wedding took place at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Tipton with no one else present except William Shaw, father of the groom.
Mr. Shaw is a member of one of the pioneer families of Steamboat Springs. During the war he served as musician with 115th Engineers.
The marriage of Dewey T. Marshall and Miss Lila Lois Macfarlane took place Wednesday afternoon at the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. James H. Macfarlane, on Egeria Creek, southeast of Yampa. The ceremony was performed by Rev. M.C. Boughton and was very largely attended. The groom, who is in the livery business at Yampa, is a son of Mrs. Pearl Marshall and has lived practically all of his life in that vicinity. His bride is a granddaughter of George C. Crossan, one of the pioneer settlers in the southern portion of the county.
Five inches of snow Saturday night was succeeded by "chinook" weather. Sunless days have been unseasonably warm.
