Wilbert Lisle, 38, a farmer, and Alice Autherson, 23, were married this morning by Squire C. T. O'Neill under unusual conditions. The groom asked that the office staff leave the room, and that the door be closed and window shades lowered. He also requested that the date of the marriage be omitted from the certificate and kept out of the newspapers.
