that he finally asked her for her hand
in marriage and she accepted him.
They went to Davenport yesterday to
have the knot tied. 1 he arrangement
was to take a short wedding trip. Sh

leaving her there while he went out
ostensibly to complete the details for
the performance of the wedding cere

Mrs. Aubie Walker Gould, Moliue's

strange experience in giving a reading
of her works at lAjClairc the other

Mrs. Gould is alone responsible for
explaining her advanced ideas to the
people of LeClaire. but this was not

more than one disappointment, and
through her determination was the
