h'^ftyt^ i SHE LIKED IOWA AM) HE ILLINOIS WEDDING OF THE JOHNS IS DE^from CLARED OFF. All Arrangements Had Been Made When I Occurred to Bride-elect that She Might Have to Leave Her Be loved IowaGroom Is Likewise Stub- bornNo Wedding Right Away. Special to The Journal, Ackley, Iowa. Oct. 10.Because the princi pals could not reach an agreement as to the place of their residence, a marriage ceremony has been indefinitely postponed. William Johns, a wealthy farmer of Illinois, won the heart of Mrs. Henry Johns of this City, the widow of his brother. Naturally, he has much affection for Illinois, where he was born and raised. Mrs. Johns, on the other hand, has niudo her home in Iowa for many years, and has become much attached to this town. When Mr. Johns came here Several days ago to claim his bride, all arrangements for the wedding had been completed. Then the question rose as to their future home. Mr. Johns was for.his Illinois country residence, and he elo quently set forth the beauties of its location and the comforts of its surroundings. Mrs. Johns was equally fervent in dilating upon the advan tages of a continued residence in the hawkeye 8tate. To the arguments of her fiance she pre sented a deaf ear, finally ending the matter by declaring that rather than consent to remove to Illinois she would resign the cup' of Joy that might be vouchsafed by her second matrimonial venture. So the wedding was postponed and the invitations recalled. Friends of the couple are now. working upon a solution to the problem which will be equally aatisfactory to each, and when this is found the wedding will proceed.
