New Lisbon Newly Weds Are Give Surprise

New Lisbon, July 10---About 80 friends gathered at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Levi George Saturday evening to greet Mr. and Mrs. Leroy George, who recently returned from their wedding trip.
So carefully had everything been planned that it was a complete surprise to them. They were invited to spend the evening with Mr. and Mrs. Roy Gilbert and about 9 o'clock the groom's father appeared to tell them that a friend and his wife had come to see them. Upon their arrival instead of two there were about 80 to greet them with firecrackers, joy bells, rice and confetti.
The evening was pleasantly spent with games and music. Refreshments were served, after which Roy Gilbert in behalf of those present presented the bride and groom with many useful gifts, consisting of china, glassware, table linen, kitchen utensils and a substantial sum of money, to which they very feelingly responded.
At a late hour the guests departed, leaving best wishes to the happy couple for a long and happy wedded life.
