GROOM  70;  BRIDE  62.
Nelson Cobbler and Mrs. Loretta
Howery Were United in
Marriage Today.
          Age proved no obstacle to Cupid in the case of  Nelson Cobbler  and  Loretta Howery  a widower and widow who are widely known over the county.  The little god of love played his part so well that the pair were united in marriage in this city this afternoon.  Mr. Cobbler is seventy years of age and his "blushing bride" is just past sixty-two.  The groom formerly resided at Fairland, but later came to this city to live with is daughter, whose home is at the corner of Noble and Mechanic streets.  His first wife died in 1908.  Mrs. Howery has had two former matrimonial experinces.  Her first husband passed away in 1888 and the second in 1905.
