MARRIED AT NOON

of St. Louis- in Drawing Boom
of Her Estate.

Benefitter of MankindMoney
"SIMPLICITY" HARD TO FIND
Tables Were Loaded With Hundreds
of Costly Gifts and Breakfast
By United Press.
Tarrytown, N. Y., Jan. 22.Helen
Miller Gould, known throughout the
world as the "Queen philanthropist
of American women," and Finley J.
Shepard, assistant to the president of
the Missouri Pacific railway, on the
main line of the Gould system, were
married at exactly 12:30 today in the
spacious drawing room of the bride's
stately mansion at Lyndhurst on the
While widely heralded as the simp
lest of weddings, the fact remains
that there was a rich setting of bow
er-like beautiful floral pieces, swell
ing harmonies of an orchestra of fifty,
ptecs, and tables loaded with hun
dreds upon hundreds of rare and
costly presents. Great glittering
tables, laden with service for a wed
ding breakfast for fifty guests, could
scarcely pass as simplicity in the ey*
of the average American bride.
Miss Gould spent much of ,-'e time
during the forenoon- with her eetv-^lor^ile^tusTf
ants and other employes at Lynd
hurst, Kftr^csbtnrtTy- estate, tttrecting
the decorations and arrangements.
Her gardener ran back and forth be
tween the, mansion and the green
house, bearing great armfuls of cut
roses and vines and the almost inces
sent tinkling of the telephone bell
gave evidence of more than ordinary
activity within the stately gray
walls. The stone gateway leading
into the drive and the porte cochere
were covered with trailing green
One of the footmen was stationed
at the gates, halting the scores of
curious visitors who drove and walk
ed the two miles from the town, hop
ing to be admitted at least to the
grounds and to get a glimpse of the
bride-to-be or the bridegroom. The
footman told everyone that it was
impossible to admit them to the
grounds, as he was under strict ord
ers to keep the crowd from gathering
inside the estate.
"Following our plan from the be
ginning, we want it to be a simple
country wedding," said Miss Gould
in explanation of the rule.
Superintendent Goodey, of the
Lyndhurst estate, being sent to New
York to collect all the wedding pres
ents that have been sent to Miss
Gould's town house, returned today,
under guard of a squad of private
detectives engaged to protect him on
the way back with the gifts, some of
which are known to be of great
Among the gifts were a handsome
rope of pearls from George J. Gould,
a corsage ornament of diamonds from
Frank Gould a set of tapestries from
Edwin Gould. Howard Gould gave
his sister a rare art treasure which
he purchased recently in Paris.
The principals included Louis J.
Shepard, brother of the bridegroom,
as best man and Miss Gould's little
nieces, Helen and Dorothy, daughters
of Frank Gould, who acted as flower
girls. The two children were the
bride's only attendants.
The wedding guests were restricted
to members of both families and a
few friends. Less than a hundred
persons witnessed the ceremony,
which was performed at high noon
by the Rev. Daniel Russell, pastor of
the Irvington Presbyterian church.

LIVED HERE SIXTEEN' YEARS
A farm of 160 acres, most of wnich
is cleared and under cultivation,
and cash in the bank is what Mr. and
J&rs* Herman ^ictartadt,^-who*
about six miles east of Bemidji in
cbe town: of Frohn, have ^to -show as
the results of sixteen years in Bel
trami county. Not only have they
cut a farm out of the jack pine, but
they have raised nine children, have
built commodious farm buildings,
have sufficient stock for their own
use, and have several pieces of mod
Both Mr. and Mrs. Eickstadt were
born in Germany. Herman, served in
the German army from 1878 to 1882
and was with the king's studs for a
time after his term of enlistment.
Dissatisfied with his wages in the old
country, he followed his mother to
America and located in Douglas
county. He came here in 1884 and
went to work at $18 per month. It
was not long before he had enough to
send for the girl he had left behind
and they were married in 1886.
They lived in Parkers Prairie for
ten years before coming to Beltrami
county. Mr. Eickstadt homesteaded
his land and when picking it out did
not look at the timber but at the soil
beneath. "We want a farm," he said.
So now when the timber is gone, the
Eickstadts Shave a farm of black
loam and with enough roll to proper
ly shed water. The Wood lot is large
enough to suply fuel for many years
Mr. Eickstadt has made a specialty
of raising corn that will grow in this
climate. He brought, his first seed in
from Otter Tail county in 1895 and
has been growing the same corn ever
since.' It is a mixture of several
varieties, but is prolific and yields an
average of fifty bushels to the acre.
His potatoes last year average 250
bushels to the acre and the yield was
below normal. He threshed 1,100
bushels of wheat. On the farm are
six milch cows, four horses, a dozen
hogs, three sheep, seven or eight
calves and numerous chickens.
Mr. Elckstadt's -sheep won first
prize in Classes A and.B at the Bel
trami county fair last fall. He did
not enter his horses but his heavy
team won first and second places as

NEW DRAWING DESKS.
The mechanical and free hand|
drawing room of the Bemidji High I
school has been equipped with new
desks. The desks are of the latest
pattern and are a big improvement
over the old work benches that were
formerly used. Some high stools
have been ordered and are expected
in a short time. The drawing room
is now one of the best equipped draw

excellent work is being done both in
free hand and mechanical drawing.
