MARRIAGE
LICENSES FOR
SEPTEMBER!
I r ~
Musical Instrument vs.
Razor Indicated
By Name
Marriage lictnats issued during
September show a r.wing back to
matrimony which is an indication that
conditions are becoming better. Mar
riage licenses issued during August
were very few compared to those is
sueal in September.
There were more inan twice as
many colored marriages in this month
than white. One girl 15 years
of age ami one 16 years of tge are in
the list below. This seems rather
young when the ggneral tendency is
to increase the age limit. The State
permits an IS year old boy and a 15
year-old girl to unite in matrimony
when neither of them can make a legal
contract for three years to come. Mat
tiimony at this period in life should
I* discouraged.
Th • most peculiar name in the list '
is Piccolo Razor the name of a col
ereal pic. alo is a musical I
i instrument which Would certainly up
' |ieal to the average c'o|ored person hut
on the other extreme he has a razor.
Licenses issued were as follows:
