Durant, Okla., June 19.—The mar-

able business boom, attributed by
County Clerk L. W. Hughes to the
Texas “gin marriage law,” which re-
quires the posting of marriage notices
several days before the ceremony.
Hughes issued 11 licenses over the
week end and eight of them went to
Texas couples, three from Dallas and
two from Ft. Worth. Since June 1,
the bureau has issued 31 licenses.
Do not fail
that within a short while after this
plant is in operation, it will have the

other two associated plants. Mr.
Short is well pleased with the interest
shown by Mt. Pleasant.
Next week, a committee will come
up from Marshall and decide on the
best site available, and a location
will be purchased soon.
