          Surprise marriages have recently been occurring with startling rapidity thruout Shelby county.  The latest is that of  Miss Mae Lawler  and  Mr. Curtis Graham,  who were married last evening by Rev. G. Jensen at his home on east Broadway.  Only four of the couple's many friends witnessed the ceremony and these were informed that the event was to take place only a short time before the ceremony was performed. Following the wedding the party went to the Lawler home, where lunch was served.
          The bride is a daughter of  Mr. and Mrs. Albert Lawler, of west Pennsylvania street, and is one of the most popular young ladies in the city.  She has lived in Shelbyville during almost her entire life, attended school here and graduated from the high school in the class of 1907.  For some time afterwards she was employed as bookkeeper at the  S. B. Morris  store.  Later she attended the state normal school at Terre Haute and was fitting herself to become a teacher.  It was while attending school, however, that she met Mr. Graham and the warm friendship which sprang up between them soon developed into a full-fledged romance.
          The groom is a son of  Mrs. Sylvia Graham  of Marion township.  He is a capable young man of excellent habits and has a large circle of friends in Marion township as well as in this city.
          The couple will make their future home in this city, but have not yet announced where they will reside. A host of friends, among which the Democrat wshhes to be included, extend congratulations and wish the couple a happy ourney over the matrimonial sea.

Gravel  Road  Meeting.
          Our friends in Moral township are moving in the direction of gravel roads in earnest, and the outlook is that the township will be blessed with several turnpikes within this year.  We are glad to see this as no township in the county is in more need of these improvements than Moral.  On the 18th inst., a large number of tax-payers and land-owners assembled at London to take steps towards building a gravel rouad, and were highly successful.  The road when completed will run from Pin Hook, on the Michigan Road to  Tighlman Graham's,  from thence to London, thence west to the Brookfield cross-roads, thence south to  Padrick's  farm, thence north to the Michigan Road.
