In one corner of the parlor was a car nation plant that had seemingly not been unmindful of the occasion, for there were just twenty-five pretty lit tle pink blossoms among the heavj fo liage of the plant. The plant began blossoming about a week prior to the wedding anniversary and sent forth just enough blossoms for the anniversary e\ent. Mr. and Mr*. Peterson were recip ients of mam handsome silver tokens. The K.

Mode of Zimmerman, and Miss Lind of Beck er. VR\ HLIG--BBOW WEDDING. Marriage of John T. Frjhling and Miss Lu ella Brown.Groom's Mother buffers a Stroke ot a Apoplexy While Going to the Wedding.

It is not known just when the unfortunate woman suffered the shock, but it must have been shortly after she left home. When she started out she placed a warm brick in the sleigh to keep her warm, but the se\ ere cold and the biting wind soon numbed her and the stroke of apoplexy ensued. She fell forward onto the dash board with her right arm resting over the top ot the same and in this position and entirely helpless she remained un til the horse arrived at the home of Mrs. Nels Nelson, a daughter of Mrs. Fryhling. Her lace was found to be badly fro/en and the woman was nearly dead. She was taken into the house and vigorously rubbed with snow and gh en such treatment as was thought necessary in such cases. When she came to enough to recognize those about her it was soon discovered that she did not have the use of her right side and Dr. Tarbox was summoned and rehe\ ed her as much as possible. She is in ver\ serious condition and her recovery is doubtful. The Cold Wave and Storm. Old inhabitants have been compar ing notes to see how the frigid con dition of the weather for the last few da} has averaged up with the rough winter weather of other days, and all have admitted that the last touch of the Frost King has been as good as any of its predecessors. The cold wave commenced to send out its runners the latter part of last week and by Satur day the weather was just getting in good shape for a lively spurt for the bulb and it came mighty near reaching it, at least it slid down at an alarming rate and nearly rubbed the 40 mark. The coldest weather was experienced Tuesday morning when all reliable thermometers registered a good 35 betheir low and the wind accompaniment simply rubbed it in and made every body feel a trifle chilly. But the storm was not confined to this particular section. It affected all the northern states east of the Rockies and penetrated far down into the south, giving Texas a foot of snow, with southern Kansas several inches and 16 below. In Oklahoma the frigid con dition of the weather made a dense fog, the first ever seen in that section. There was a frost at Los Angeles. In fact there was a howling condition of the weather all over the country. The storm was general and there was a great deal of suffering in consequence, especially among lh stock.

LAKEIMPROVEMENTS The flille Lacs Lake Country Getting Ready for flany Improvements the Coming Summer. Several Fine Cottages to be Erected at the Lake Near Cove-=Other Improvements at Lake. Nils B. Berg of Isle was down from the lake Tuesday. He says that the drh from Lawrence to Mora was quite comfortable despite the cold weather. The roads are in ver} good shape and trips are made with no inconvenience to trav elers. Mr. Berg sa} that the coming sea son will witness man} improvements at the lake, especialh in the vicinity of Bay View house at Cove and along the beautiful shores of that part of the big lake where there has been much stir in lake shore property the past ear. Next spring several substantial lake cottages will be built in this vicinity. Banker L. T. Grad} of Foley and W. S. Moses, a real estate dealer of Tracy, Minn., have bought land at this point on the lake and will improve the same the coming season. Mr. Grad} will build four fine summer cottages and put a fine steam launch on the lake. Mr. Moses will build a $2,000 cottage and also several which he will rent. Geo. W. Patterson, who owns Mezo mania Point consisting of ninety acres, will also interest himself in improving this part of the lake and it is said he will invest considerable money in plac ing the propert} in shape for a summer resort. The intention is to plat the land in this vicinit} of the lake and sell oft in lots for building purposes. There is no better point on the lake for a summer resort as Mezomania Point stretches far out into the lake and shelters the pretty bay from the rough weather. There are fine beaches at the lake at this point and beautiful building sites. M. E. Rutherford & Son have bought a fine steel row boat which has just ar rived at Lawrence and will be a valu able acquisition to the Rutherford fleet of boats next season. They are also having a cabin built on the largest gasoline launch which will make the boat much more comfortable for lake service. Several improvements will be made at and in the vicinity of Lawrence the coming season. Mrs. Norah Mar vin has just completed a new hotel at that point, and T. E. Potts contem plates putting up a new hotel next seas on. Other new buildings ma} be put up at that point. There is plent} of good building ma terial at the lake and one can get ever}thing he wants in the wa} of lumber, sash, doors, blinds, mouldings, etc.. for a house. The only thing that is scarce is pine lumber, though there is a sufficient supply to meet all de mands at the present time. Notwith standing the fact that the best pine in the State grew in the vicinity of the lake in great abundance and six }ears ago was worth onh $2.50 per thousand, to-day pine is worth nearly six times that price and it will not be long be fore it will be hard to get, There is plent} of good hard wood timber, how ev er.

Tuesday morning about three o'clock fire was discovered in an empty Ar mour refrigerator car that was stand ing on the siding in front of the Thomas warehouse. Agent Rice had gone down to the depot about two o'clock in the morning and while there he could smell fire, but noticed nothing burning in the vicinit} of the depot or on the tracks at that time. He thought pos sible that some of the residences might be on fire and went out and looked around but could see no signs of any fire. On going back to the depot he saw the car burning, the fire having worked its wa} through the car. He gave the alarm and ran up and rang the bell at the Congregational church until he said he thought his hands would freeze. On his way back to the depot he woke up the boarders at the Princeton hotel and got them out to help him. All hands turned in and moved the cars down the track so that the burning car could be mo\ ed from the warehouse. Some water was poured on the car but the fire had gained such headwa} that it could not be stopped and the car burned to the trucks. A fire had been built in the car the night before and it was to be loaded Tuesday morning with potatoes from the H. E. Thomas warehouse. The car was ig nited in some unknown manner from the fire in the sto\ e. It was a \er} fortunate thing that Agent Rice hap pened to be at the depot at the time as the car would hay burned while stand ing by the warehouse which would have caught fire and probabh been a total loss, Gallowa.vs for Greenbush. 1 Sam Tillev intends to go into the live stock business and last Monday he bought a herd of twenty full-blooded Galloway cows from the E.

John Mitchell told a story recenth in the Clover Club, of Philadelphia, which was of a certain grim humor. Mr. Mitchell was in his first suit of evening dress. He was talking about the seriousness of life and his story bore out his view. He said there were two sisters, seamstresses, who lived in a little room and earned their "bread by sewing. They were voung and pretty, but they seldom laughed they never wore comely clothes: the} did nothing but sit in a stooped attitude, sewing all 1 day and a good part of the evening. One night, when she was quite worn out by labor, the .vounger said to the older sister: ''Oh, dear! I wish we were both dead!'' The older sister's mouth took on a grim smile as she re turned: ''Be still and work hard. Business before pleasure.'' Will Be Swell Trains.
