the artillery corps stationed at fort
Rilev. Kans.. was solemnized this after
noon at the home of Col. and Mrs. Stan
hope E. Blunt, at Rock Island arsenal.
It was a military wedding in all its ap
pointments. I'nited States flags were
prominent in the decorations, and the
music was of a martial order.
At 3:20 o'clock the bridal party en
tered the parlors of the commandant
residence, to the strains of "Arm
Blue," the West Point march, played
by Bleuer's orchestra. The bridesmaids
and ushers, the Misses Evelyn and

of Plalnfleld. N. J., and Grace Meigs
or Keokuk. Iowa, and Lieuts.W. F. Mor

and E. L. Gruber. all of Fort Riley,
preceded and formed an aisle with
white satin ribbons.
Bride With Father.
The bride, on the arm of her father,
Col. Lusk. with the two maids of hon
or. Miss Dillard and Miss Elizabeth
Dillard. sisters of the groom, of New
Orleans, followed. The groom was ac
companied by the best man. Lieut.
Francis Honeycutt. of Fort Hamilton,
N. Y., a cousin of the bride.
The bride was attired in a beautiful
creation of chiffon satin, and carried a
great shower of bride's roses. The
bridesmaids wore gowns of white silk
mull and carried red liberty roses. The
bridesmaids' dresses were emblazoned
with red ribbons, to harmonize with
the red stripes of the artillery corps
uniforms worn by the ushers.
The ceremony was performed by
Rev. W. S. Marquis, D. D., pastor of
Broadway Presbyterian church, of this
city, in the main parlor. A large com

Following the ceremony a reception
was held, and a wedding repast served
in the capacious dining room of the
commandant's residence. The table

carnations, a great bank of these being
placed In the center of the table. The
mansion throughout was decorated
with palms, roses, smilax, and innum

placed among the other decorations.

she had resided in Washington, and it
was while Col. Lusk was in charge of
some important construction work at
West Point that she met Lieut. Dil

Since her residence in Rock Island
she has won hosts of friends in the
tri-cities. and is one of the most popu

fessor of Latin at the Tulane univer

evening for a short visit in Chicago.
They will return to this city for a few
days before departing for Fort Riley,
where Lieut. DiKard is to report again
on May 5.
The bride's trift to the bridesmaids
consisted of small clasp pins, enameled
in red and set with pearls. The ushers
were presented with pearl scarf pins
bv the groom. The men of the bridal
party were the guests of Col. and Mrs.

On our first day of business, Saturday. We acknowledge that sales have run above our expectations. The siore was jammed with cheerful buyers
all day until 11 o'clock, closing time. We are positive that a good many were not properly waited on. We have said before we did not expect

that we have prepared ourselves with a larger force of clerks. If we don't ask too much, you will note carefully every word that follows: The
comparisons of values may seem extravagant; they are really conservative. All that we ask, and this we ask simply in fairness, is that you put
these offerings to the inexpensive test of comparison. Read prices carefully, item by item:
