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.

of the Lohengrin bridal march the brides

bride. The procession was then re-formed,
the ushers leading the way, followed. by
the bridesmaids, who in turn were fol

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.

"I had Eczema on mjr hand» and face for
five years. It would break out in. little
white pustules, crusts- would form and
drop off, leaving: the skin red and inflam-
ed. The doctors did me no good. I used
all the medicated soaps and salves without
benefit. 8. S. S. cured me, and my skin
is as clear and smooth as any one's."

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
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.
No other remedy so thoroughly and
