A WEDD1NG AT ALTRURIA
A Beautiful and simple Ceremony In tlie Mark West Colony.
There was a wedding this week at Altruria, the first of its kind. The contracting parties were Will H. O'Byran, a gifted young prophet of social reform, and Miss Lelore Keese, the flower of Altrusian femininity.
From the founding of Altruria, the young man has been its pride and boast. In fact, so engrossed seemed the young man in social ethics and so indefatigable his attention to the practical details of the organization that until the other day none of his associates suspected that he had any tender affair on hand.
It is true that he and Miss Lelore
were often seen together in earnest and
prolonged talks, but nothing was thought
of it, as this beautiful and cultured girl of
23 is admitted to be only second to Mr.
O'Byran in the able management of Altrurian projects. Six weeks of idyllic love-making
passed when, on a recent Sunday, the twain were made one.
Mr. Morris B. Swift, a well-known writer and capitalist of Boston, was present, besides other friends and a few relatives of the parties immediately concerned.
The wedding took place in the evening. All the guests assembled before an open fire in the old ranch house. The only light was from the blazing pines heaped up in the big, black-throated chimney.
At a given signal a door was opened and Mr. O'Byran entered with Miss Keese leaning upon his arm. The ceremony was simple and informal and was performed by Rev. Mr. Payne. The newly married conple will continue to live at Altruria.
