THE MINNEAPOLIS JOURNAL.
An interesting ronia'tio'e which ^foei
gaii nine years ago in Fargo, N. D.,
culminated in a wedding this after
noon at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
Samuel Todd, 3327 Chicago avenue,
when their daughter, Bojtane M. Ste
vens, and. George Lee T. Wertman,
were married. Nine years ago Mr.
Wertman met Miss Todd while travel
ing thru North Dakota. He fell in
love with her and they were engaged.
A quarrel separated them and Miss
Todd married Mr. Stevens and went to
Duluth to live. After Mr. Stevens
died Mrs. Stevens came to Minneapo
lis to make her home with her par
ents. She met Mr. Wertman again and
the old quarrel was forgotten.
About thirty-five relatives and
friends gathered at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Todd to witness the service,
which was read by Rev. T. W. Stout.
The rooms were bowers of smilax and
palms and a different color was in
each. The hall was all in green, with
palms and ferns and white chrysan
themums were in the parlor, where
the service was read. Pink chrysan
themums decked the second room and
in the dining-room a handsome cen
terpiece of golden gate roses, veiled
with feathery ferns, was in the center
of the table, and garlands and vines
fell from the chandelier. A string or
chestra played as the bridal couple
entex-ed. The ''Lohengrin" chorus was
used as a processional, "Hearts and
Flowers" was played as an accompa
niment for the service, and the Men
delssohn march sounded-as the bridal
couple turned to l'eceive congratula
tions. The bride wore pearl gray kid
broadcloth, fashioned with chiffon and
real lace. She carried a shower bou
quet of bride roses and on her finger
was a. beautiful ring of diamonds and
sapphires, a gift of the bridegroom.
An informal reception followed, and
among the guests were Mr. and Mrs.
S. P. Jackson and little Vera Twist
of Duluth and Mr. and Mrs. L. C. No
lan of St. Paul.
Mr. and 'Mrs. 'Wertman will leave
.this evening for the west and they will
be at home after Jan. 15 at 3327 Chi
cago avenue. The bride's traveling
gown is of blue cloth, hand embroi
dered, and her hat is to match. Mr.
Wertman is the junior member of the
.Grandin-Wertman company and is a
/well-known business man.
A delightful affair of last evening
.was the reception which was given
at Fair Oaks by Mr. and Mrs. William
D. Washburn for the people of the
Church of the Redeemer. . This gath
erning of the church people at Fair
,Oaks is an annual event and is one of
the pleasant social features of the
year. The decorations were charm
ing, and palms, ferns and poinsetti
blossoms contributed their beauty to
the enhancing of the great hall, while
an open Are sent forth a message of
cheer. In the drawing-room, lilies
and narcissus were with the ferns on
tables and mantels, and in the libra
ry no color was used but a mass of
feathery ferns. Pink and white car
nations were the chosen blossoms in
the living-room. The dining-room, was
aglow with color and light and the
flame of poinsettis was caught in the
.tangle of ferns in the windows and
on the buffet. A basket of the gor
geous flowers was in the center of the
Rev. and Mrs. Marion D. Shutter
received with Mr. and Mrs. Wash
burn, and alternating in the dining
room were Mmes. John Washburn,
William D. Washburn, Jr., and Miss
Fuller, and they were assisted by a
group of the younger women of the
church. A string orchestra played as
the guests came and went.

D O NO T WEA R A LON G FAC E
It Is a Great Handicap in All Business
i and Social Relations.
The man who looks as if he had lost
his last friend is in no danger of be
ing crushed by the jam of new ones
unless he "cheers up." People are not
going out of their Avay nowadays to as
sociate with the man of mournful and
melancholy appearance. They are
afraid he will tell them his troubles
and they steer clear of him as they all
have plenty of their own.
The most universal cause of the for
lorn and hopeless appearance to-day
is dyspepsia. It unfits a man for every
duty of life and causes him to become
despondent and gloomy and necessari
ly his looks do not belle his feelings.
He appears cast down and dejected
and becomes a burden to himself and
humanity in general.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are the
dyspeptic's certain relief.- They do
the work that his stomach is unable to
do and by relieving that organ of its
burdens, permits it to regain its health
and strength and again become active
and useful in its functions. They con
tain all the essential ingredients that
enter into the digestive fluids and se
cretions of the stomach and they
actually take up the Work and do it
just as a healthy,, sound stomach
By this means' a man can go right
ahead with his work and eat enough to
keep him in proper working condition.
His system is not deprived of--its
necessary nourishment as it is in the
case of the "starvation cure" or the
employment of some of the first-class
chicken foods now on the market.
Starvation, even if it were a good
thing, could not be continued long
enough to effect a cure for a dis
ordered and worn out stomach is not
going to become strong and healthy in
two or three days.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets act
naturally because they contain natural
digestives. The principal component
parts are aseptic pepsin, malt diastase
and other ingredients with like prop
erties that do their work regardless of
the condition of the stomach. There
is no unnatural or violent disturbance
of the digestive organs as the result of
their action. In fact, the existence of
the stomach is entirely forgotten as
soon as they have had time to begin
their operations. They also possess
very curative and healing properties
and assist the stomach in getting well,
while relieving it of its work. They
perform the duties of both nurse and
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are for
sale by all druggists at 50 cents .a box
and there is very little danger of any
druggist trying to sell you something
else in its place that is "just as good."'
They are so well established and have
done so much good in the world that
their name has become a household
word: so the usual warning. "Accept
no substitute," is unnecessary in the
case of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.

apple. And just a little way off was a
fruit stand, with a very substantial
fairy dealing out her wares for tiny
bits of fairy money. Next door to
that, a grocery store with a little de
livery wagon in front of it and here, in
the door, was a cunning basket the
shape of a bushel basket, lying over on
its side, partly filled with potatoes no
bigger than beans.
And in the meat market across the
street is a quantity of tiny
chickens, geese, ducks, turkeys*
sausages, roast beef, chops, veal, '
muttonall the meat you can
think of. The clerk was weigh
ing a piece of ham on the cutest little
scales you ever saw. Right around
the corner I saw a bridal party com
ing out of a house a bride all in white
satin, leaning on the arm of a groom
who was quite an extraordinary
height, being at least 6 inches tall!
Now after looking at all these little
things it suddenly occurred to me that
while I had been there, the little peo
ple had not moved or spoken, but that
my presence had seemed to cast a sort
of spell of immovable silence over
them. When I asked Aunt Isabel the
reason for this, she replied that it was
because the presence of mortals al
ways cast this spell over the fairies un
til Christmas morning.
