Culmination of the Romance of an
Independence Woman.

Three times married, her third husband brother to her first, Mrs. W. Henry Moore is today one of the happiest women in Independence. Her third and last marriage occurred at the bride's home, Idlewild Place, in Independence yesterday evening in the presence of intimate friends and relatives, and with the final words of the marriage ceremony, a romance in real life was consummated.

Several years ago, then a belle of the county seat town, she married W. J. Moore.

Her first marriage was a happy one, especially in its relations with her husband's family, among whom was her present husband, Henry Moore. W. J. Moore died a short time after the wedding, however, and after mourning him a time, she married W. J. McCormick. For several years she had seen nothing of the family of her first husband, but, Mr. McCormick dying soon after, she once more became friendly with them. The renewal of acquaintances of other days awoke old sentiments, and finally Henry Moore offered his hand to his brother's widow and was accepted. The wedding last night was the result.
