HAS INDIAN BRIDE

Story of Strongheart Is Reversed by Honor Youth. (Special to The Evening Press.)

Traverse City, July 29. A romance culminated at Honor in the wedding of Hebert Vanderhoof and Miss Kate Cross. The groom is the son of a prominent farmer in Platte Township, Benzie County, and the bride is a full blooded squaw. The groom is well educated and so is the bride, she being a graduate of Mount Pleasant.

The young persons have been sweethearts for some time, Vanderhoof preferring the Indian girl in any of the white young women of the neighborhood, although he was popular with the other sex.
