        Of notable interest in Lake Charles and throughout the state was the marriage of Miss Irma Lock, daughter of Mr. Fred G. Lock of this city, and Mr. Fred A. Tieman of New York, which was solemnized this morning at 10:30 in the Church of the Good Shepherd in the presence of only the immediate friends and relatives of the young couple. The altar of the handsome church was transformed into a bower of spring, with quantities of blossoms and vines typical of the season. Tall vases of Easter lilies, brass jars of mountain ash and vases of lovely roses adorned the retable. The chancel rail was intertwined with the graceful bamboo vine, interspersed with dainty colored spring flowers. Huge clusters of wild pink honeysuckle were massed on both sides of the altar.
        Preceding the entrance of the bridal party, Mr. George M. Vail, organist of the Episcopal Church played "Cantique D'Armour" Gillette; "Benediction Nuptilale," Frysinger, and "A Dream," Bartlett.
        To the strains of Dekoven's March Nuptiale, beautifully rendered on the pipe organ by Mr. Vail, the bride's attendant, Miss Selma Lock, entered by the main door, followed by the bride, on the arm of her father, Mr. Fred G. Lock. They were met at the altar by the bridegroom with his best man, Mr. Ernest Miller, and the impressive ring ceremony was performed by Rev. C. B. K. Weed, during which Tanhouser's "Evening Star" was softly played on the organ.
        Miss Lock was charming in blue georgette, picture hat and harmonizing accessories.
        Mrs. Tieman was an attractive bride. She was becomingly attired in a blue traveling suit, black slippers, black hat and white gloves. She wore a corsage bouquet of white roses and dainty fern. The bride is one of Lake Charles' loveliest girls, having been born and reared here, and has a wide circle of friends who join in wishing her every happiness in her new life.
        Mr. Tieman, formerly of New York, but now a prominent young businessman of Ganado, Texas, is well known in Lake Charles. He was stationed at Gerstner Field during the war and made many friends while here.
        Mr. and Mrs. Tieman left this morning by train for New Orleans, where they will spend their honeymoon, after which they will go to Ganando, Texas, where they will make their home. They have the congratulations and best wishes of a host of friends.
        Among the out of town guests for the wedding were Dr. and Mrs. Grayson Tarkington of Little Rock, Ark., and Mr. and Mrs. B. J. Benckenstein of Beaumont.
