A . stunning hat of cream lace and Immense '\u25a0- white 'plumes lent the' finishing touches to the costume The bridesmaids, Miss Gertrude Parker', over all things, within the First Presby terian Church all was light and gay. There were bright flowers and gorgeous palms, beautiful -women, a most generous sprinklinjg of handsome men and a mag nificent display of beautiful gowns and stunning hats. The floral decorations of the church, while simple, were in most exquisite taste. Magnificent palms made a most effective • background for the chancel, while tall, white chrysanthe mums sprang gracefully from the midst of a rich tangle of green. Two hearts (a&hioried of pink roses peeped forth from the center of all this wealth of flora. . The wedding guests began to arrive early, and it was hardly more than half after 1 when every seat of the church was occupied. There was a hush In the crowded edi fice when, stepping to the sweet strains of the Lohengrin bridal march the brides maids came from the vestry and. march ing down the center aisle went to meet the bride. The procession was then re-formed, the ushers leading the way, followed. by the bridesmaids, who in turn were fol lowed by the' maid of honor. The bride, leaning on the arm of her father, closed the bridal procession. As the bride ap proached the altar the groom, Harrison Magowen Parker, came to meet her. Un like the majority of grooms he was not sedate and serious. He \u25a0 approached the lady of his choice quickly and eagerly, while his face was lighted with a happy smile. • Dr. J. E. Stubbs, president of the' Ne vada University and uncle of the bride, performed the ceremony, assisted by Dr. Mackenzie, the pastor of the church. After the ceremony a reception was held' at the heme of the bride's parents, , Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Stubbs. on Pacific avenue. The magnificent residence :• was aglow with rich blossoms and while there. were flow ers everywhere there was no set form of decorations. . . The bride wore an exquisite gown of white tulle, embroidered at the hem in white forget-me-nots. , Tiny ruffles edged with white . silk finished off the long trained skirt. The corsage was trimmed with an exquisite berthe of duchesse lace. Leave for N"ew York Home. Sun Shines While They Pledge Devotion. appointed hour.

The liability to disease is greatly- lessened when the blood is in good con- dition, and the circulation healthy and vigorous. For then all refuse ma&er is promptly carried out of the system ; otherwise it would rapidly accumulate —fermentation would take place, the blood become polluted and the consti- tution so weakened that a simple malady might result seriously. A healthy, active circulation means good digestion and strong, healthy nerves. As a blood purifier and tonic S. S. S. has no equal. It is the safest and best remedy for old -people and children because it contains no minerals, but is made exclusively of roots and herbs.
