Wedding ofH.C. Wlvlll and Mrs. Catherine
At St. Joseph's church at 8 o'clock
this morning occurred the marriage
of Mrs. Catherine Farrell to Henry
C. Wirill, Dean Maekin officiating,
assisted by Rev. Father Flannigan
The church was well filled at the
hour of the ceremony and the bridal
party entered the church to the
strains of a grand wedding march
and took their respectire places at
the altar where the solemn ceremony
was performed with celebration of a
high mass. The happy couple were
attended by Mr. and Mrs. George
f. btauduhsr. immediately after
the ceremony the bridal party-
was driven to the bride's
home in the west end of the city
where an elaborate wedding; break
fast was served. Only members of
the families and a few very intimate
friends were present, the joyous
event being celebrated in a most
happy manner until the noon hour,
when Mr. and Mrs. Wivill left on the
east bound train for Chicago and vi
cinitv. where they will spend two
weeks before returning.

Tlie Iiiimontte Area of Texas.
A printed statement that the western
states of America are becoming crowded is
disproved by figures that, through various
manipulations, tell a most wondertui 6tory
of the length and breadth of the magnifi
cent empire lying west of the -Mississippi.
Of the vast area of the larger western
states people who have not visited them
and traveled over them have no compre
hensive Idea. Texas, the largest of the
United States, has an area of 202,290 square
miles. To the casual reader these figures
mean little; they show, however, that the
Lone Star State is more than 54 times as
large as the state of Connecticut.
If it were possible to run a railway train
from Connecticut to Texas and back in a
day, and if the train could take the entire
population of the A utmeg state, as given in
the last census, at every trip, and upon its
return there should be as many persons in
the state as there were before the train left
with its cargo, and if each were placed upon
an acre of ground upon its arrival in Texas,
the train would be obliged to make 22
trips, or to depopulate Connecticut 234
times, liefore accomplishing its mission,
and then there would remain In Texas 703,
803 empty acres.
It may be of passing interest U) know
that such a train, made up of coaches SO
feet long, capable of accommodating SO pas
sengers each, would extend over a distance
of more than 5G miles. Kate "Field's- Wash

There are two other tents on the
ground, each 80x60 feet in size, and
an exposition hall 80x90 feet. One
of the tents is filled with agricultural
implements that have been donated
to the exposition. Scarcely anything
can be thought of in the implement
line that is not shown here.
Another tent is used as a refresh
ment hall. Meals will be provided
as well as lunches and ice cream,
lemonade, etc., will be on sale. A
large number of benches Mill be put
under the trees near this tent for the
accommodation of purchasers.
The exposition hall proper is filled
with fancy articles from over 20 dif
ferent states. Besides these there
are six pianos, two organs, sewing
machines, etc. One fine exhibit is a
collection of cane, etc.. made from
California woods. There are about
15,000 different articles in this hall.
The specimens of needlework are
worth going a long way' to see. the
admission to the hall has been placed
at 25 cents, but this amount will be
refunded to any one who purchases
