    • Newspaper Article - Wednesday, October 24, 1900 Pulaski Democrat - Calkins - Tyler - A very pretty home wedding occurred at the residence of Mrs. Flora Tyler on the lake road near Selkirk last Wednesday afternoon, when her daughter, Ola L., was united in marriage to Mr. Florance Calkins of Yonkers. Promptly at four o'clock the bride and groom, preceded by the bridesmaids, Misses Lois Tyler and Blanche Calkins, entered the parlor and took their places beneath an arch of trailing pine, where, in the presence of about forty guests, the Rev. D. G. Christman, pastor of the Fernwood M. E. church, performed the ceremony. The bride was handsomely attired in a gown of white silk and canied a bouquet of bride's roses, while the bridesmaids wore gowns of pink and white and canied carnations of the same colors. Immediately following the ceremony a bountiful collation was served and congratulations were extended to the happy couple. The presents, which were numerous and elegant, betokened the high esteem in which the young people are held. The bride is the eldest daughter of Mrs. Tyler and a young woman wise sterling character and winning ways have gained for her a large circle of warm friends, while the groom is the son of F. Mason Calkins of Daysville and a young man of more than ordinary business ability. He now holds the responsible position of manager for Woolworth & Company's Yonkers store, a position which he has attained by close attention to duty and an application of sound business methods. Mr. and Mrs. Calkins left on the evening train for a short bridal tour, after which they will take up their residence in Yonkers.

He went with the F. W. Woolworth Syndicate, taking a position with the New York House, about nine years ago. Seven years ago he was given the management of the Yonkers store and he made remarkable success in that store and was transferred to Worcester, Mass., where he was very successful and last March he was transferred to Rochester and given the management of the store of that city.

In the death of Mr Calkins the great Woolworth Syndicate has lost one of its ablest managers, a fond wife if bereft of a devoted husband and two dear little daughters have lost a loving father, while a father and mother and sister have been deprived of a son and brother of the noblest sort. Mr. Calkins was an honor to any relation he sustained, to the home or the community.
