Interesting Betrothals Announced During the Week.

On Wednesday evening last Mr. and Mrs. P. Tsikoores gave a grand reception at their home, 1814 Taylor street, in honor of the engagement of their daughter, Miss Rose Tsikoores, and Vladimir V. Alexandrof. Mr. Alexandrof is sent by the Holy Synod of Russia as missionary to the Northwestern States, and his headquarters at present are at Seattle.

The betrothal of the young people was celebrated in true Russian fashion. There was dancing, followed by an elaborate supper and music and speechmaking.

No date for the wedding has yet been set, but it has been arranged that the nuptials will be celebrated toward the end of January.
