ond Ceremony.
Grand Junction, Colo.-With weird
and picturesque ceremony, preceded
by a wedding banquet, cooked and
served by the bride, and followed by
a series of dynamite salutes to his
Qide and the American flag, Miss
beatrice Farnham, the Boston artist
and sculptress, was married to John
Otto, the trail builder, in the mountain
fastnesses of Monument canon.
Out of deference to the minister,
the plans for marriage on top of' In
dependence rock were abandoned, and
the', ceremony was performed on
Grand ledge, 100 feet high. The Rev.
F. A. Hatch, Congregational minister
at Frulta, officiated and there were
half a dozen invited guests.
The bride and bridegroom stood be
fore an altar which they had fash
toned from quartz and granite, under
an arch of evergreen. In the rock the
bride had carved the words "Truth,
Honor, Love and Justice."
The usual ring service was used,
but the clergyman omitted the words
"honor and obey" from his questions
to Miss Farnham, because of Otto's
declaration that he did not believe in
that part of the ceremony.
"What is the use of making women
promise to honor and obey," he said,
"when they don't have any intention
of doing it. Half of the marriages
performed simply force the woman to
et
t
lie and I don't want my wife to make t
any promises she can't keep, for only
so long as love lasts can marriage en- e
dure."
The marriage was solemnized by a
double ceremony. To comply with the
laws of the country, Otto secured a
marriage license and was duly wedded
by Rev. F. A. Hatch. The legal cere
mony, to the mind of Otto, a professed
atheist, and Miss Farnham, a free
thinker, was not sufficient to "bind
them in the holy bonds of wvedlock,"
-hence following tihe words which
made them man and wife in the eyes
of the law and the public at large,
they climbed to the top of Independ
ence monument, 550 feet high, by a
fragile ladder of iron spikes, and went
through a fantastic ceremony of their
own. They were alone on the top of
the pinnacle and to the few spectators
on the ground their actions could not
be plainly seen.
It had been their plan from the first
to have both ceremonies performed on
the top of the monument, but no min
ister or justice of the peace could be
secured in any part of Mesa county
who would risk his life in this task
for love or money.
Following the ceremony Otto burned
incense to his wife in the form of
cedar berries, which he sprinkled on
the camp fire. Then the bride and
groom together planted a young
spruce tree, which they designated as
their witness tree, and dleclared would
grow as long as their love lasted.

DISFIGURED WITH CRUSTS
"Some time ago I was taken with
eczema from the top of my head to
my waist. It began with scales on my
body. I suffered untold itching and
burning, and could not sleep. I was
greatly disfigured with scales and
crusts. My ears looked as if they had
been most cut off with a razor, and
my neck was perfectly raw. I suffered
untold agony and pain. I tried two
doctors who said I had eczema in its
fullest stage, and that it could not
be cured. I then tried other rem
edies to no avail. At last, I tried a set
,f the genuine Cuticura Remedies,
which cured me of eczema when all
else had failed, therefore I cannot
praise them too highly.
"I suffered with eczema, about ten
months, but am now entirely cured,
and I believe Cuticura Remedies are
the best skin cure there Is." (Signed)
Miss Mattie J. Shaffer, R. F. D. 1, Box
8, Dancy, Miss., Oct. 27, 1910.
"I had suffered from eczema about
four years when boils began to break
out on different parts of my body. It
started with a fine red rash. My
back was affected first, when it also
spread over my face. The itching was
almost unbearable at times. I tried
different soaps and salves, but nothing
seemed to help me until I began to
use the Cuticura Soap and Ointment.
One box of them cured me entirely. I
recommended them to my sister for
her baby who was troubled with tooth
eczema, and they completely cured her
baby." (Signed) Mrs. F. L. Marber
ger, Drehersville, Pa., Sept. 6, 1910.
Although Cuticura Soap and Oint
ment are' sold everywhere, a sample
of each, with 32-page book, will be

The Quaker Scored.
An old Quaker went into a booksell
er's shop, and an impertinent shopman,
wishing to have some sport at his ex
pense, said to him:
"You are from the country, are you
not?"
"Yes," replied the Quaker.
"Then here is just the thing for
you," responded the man, holding out
the book.
"What is it?" asked the Quaker.
"It is an 'Essay on Rearing
Donkeys.' "
"Friend," said the Quaker, "thee had
better present that to thy mother."
Honors More Than Even.
Mrs. Patrick Campbell is not kindly

ing the lines in question. Mrs. Camp
bell drew herself up and said: "'Mr.
Frohman, I am an artist." "That is all
right, Mrs. Campbell," replied the ur

Seventy-One Years In a Shoe Shop.
Charles H. Wilson of Troy, N. Y.,
occupies the unique position of having
been in business in one building for 71
years; at least he will have completed
71 years in the shoe business at 242
244 River street August 12 next. This
record, it is believed, can be equaled
by few if any shoe retailers in this
country. Mr. Wilson has also been in
business for himself for more than 60
years. Mr. Wilson is today just as
much in active business as he was al
most three-quarters of a century ago,
when as a thirteen-year-old lad he en
tered the employ of John Leonard
Williams of Troy. To be exact, that
was August 12, 1840. Mr. Williams
kept a shoe store at 242-244 River
street in a building which had been
erected in 1803, and so the building
now occupied by Mr. Wilson for his
retail shoe business is one of the old
est buildings in Troy.
