FRIDAY, APRIL 17, 1914
Avery pretty wedding was solemn
ized Saturday at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Louis Spencer when their daugh
ter, Miss Alice Marion, was united in
marriage to Frank Summer Frost of
this city. Rev. Thomas B. Thompson
of Rockford officiated, using the im
pressive double ring service.
The death of Mrs. William Carpenter
occurred Friday evening about B’o’clock
at the home on church street. For a
long time she had been failing in health
and about six weeks ago became seri
ously ill. During the last few weeks
she suffered greatly, but at all times
with the utmost patience. Her maiden
name was Elizabeth Ruey Ballard. She
was born September 19, 1845, near
Pike, Alleghaney county, New York.
Sixty-four years ago the family moved
west, coming to Wisconsin and locat
ing on a farm about four miles this
side of Janesville. Just fifty years ago
last Christmas she was united in mar
riage with William Carpenter. Their
home for a number of years was on the
farm a mile and a half east of Evans
ville. Thirty-one years ago last fall
they moved into the city where they
lived together with their family until
the death of Mr. Carpenter in July,
1912. To them were born three chil
dren, William, who died at the age of
seven, Miss Cora Carpenter of this city
and Mrs. Grace Lyons of Marquette,
Mrs. S. A. Davis and children are
with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. B. I.
Jeffrey, for a stay of two or three
weeks before joining her husband in
their new home near Rhinelander, in
Oneida county, whither he has gone
with a carload of stock and household
Homer Potter was badly injured Sat
urday afternoon. While unloading hay
he accidentally stepped off the front of
the load backwards, falling under the
hind feet of the team. The horses
started and one stepped on the side of
his head and one wagon wheel struck
his shoulder. His face was badly cut,
his back injured and he was badly
bruised up. Substitute Carrier Will
Hudson is driving route 13 while he is
laid up.
The family and friends received a
sad shock Friday when Albert Holmes
died suddenly of heart failure while
visiting with some of his friends in the
F. S. Livingston blacksmith shop. His
health has been about as usual and his
sudden demise came without warning.
Albert Holmes was born in Stoddard,
N. H., January 19, 1832. He was the
son of Luke and Sally (Parker) Holmes
and was one of nine children, only one
of whom is living, M. J. Holmes of
Fayetteville, Ark.
Miss Kittia Cole of Milton and Mr.
Arthur M. North of Dodge Center,
Minn., were married Sunday morning,
April 5, 1914, at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. David Arnold near Milton Junc
tion. The Rev. L. C. Randolph, pastor
of the bride, performed the ceremony,
which took place shortly after 6 a. m.
After wedding breakfast the twy young
people drove to Janesville to take the
Northwestern train for Dodge Center,
where they will go at once to house
keeping on the farm of the groom,
about two miles from town.
In the town of Christiana there was
a contest between Geo. Holvorson and
M. C. Kravick for chairman, Mr. Kra
vick winning out by 32 majority. Mar
tin Strom men defeated Geo. Halvorson
as clerk by 18 votes, and J. C. Hanson
winning over E. M. Starks for treas
urer by 86 majority.
Rev. G. G. Krostu states that about
$3,000 would be expended this spring in
repairing and remodeling the Liberty
Prairie church, work upon which was
started in 1851, making it the oldest
Lutheran church building now in use in
the United States. In is located in the
town of Deerfield.
Cambridge experienced the feeling
of being set back to early civilization
the last of the week. No livery in
town. No train service and some of
the telephone lines down. Those that
wanted to get out of town felt a pretty
thorough sense of isolation. At the
present writing the train is still un Kl p
to make its runs.
The force of men engaged in con
structing a cement bridge at Haner
ville left Stoughton for that place yes
terday morning. The town of Dunkirk
is expending about SIBOO for the bridge
over the creek near the Collins farm.
Mrs. M. O. Berg had the misfortune
to fall in such a manner that she broke
a hip. She is more than 70 old and in
sisted upon helping her son in remov
ing a piece of furniture from one room
to another. In stepping backward she
There was a miscellaneous shower
given Miss Nellie McCarthy at the
home of Mrs. Mary McCarthy in Dun
kirk Monday afternoon. Among those
present from Stoughton were Mrs.
Judd McCarthy and Miss Elthel Ander
son. It is said that Claude Watson of
Stebbinsvilie is the prospective groom.
Mrs. Harry Keenan entertained the
ladies of the Edgerton Bridge club
Saturday at her ne\v home on Prospect
avenue: Miss Helen Coon, Mrs. Geo.
Blanchard, Mrs. Alfred Jenson, Mrs.
Walter Mabbett, Mrs. L. J. Dickinson,
Mrs. Oscar Jenson, Mrs. Clouden Far
man, Miss Lucile Culton, Miss Madge
Willson, Mrs. A. T. Shearer, Mrs. Syd
ney Emery. Other guests were Miss
Eva White of River Falls, Mrs. E. B.
Duncan, Mrs. Earle Anderson, Mrs.
Giles Dow, Mrs. Ray Patterson, Mrs.
S. A. Oscar, Mrs. E. O. Brewer of
Stonghton. Mrs. Keenan was former
ly a resident of Edgerton and a mem
ber of the bridge club. It proved a
very happy social event. The visiting
ladies returned home on the evening
The Fulton Lecture Course.
For the past fifteen years there has
been a lecture course held at Fulton
tiiat has equaled the best courses given
in the large cities.
The courses have been a source of
great satisfaction to the people of the
whole community. It has consisted of
four numbers —concerts, lectures, etc.
Season tickets have been sold for SI.OO
for the four numbers.
We have thus been able to have right
here at home some of the best talent
on the lecture and concert platforms
for 25c. Many of these numbers could
not be heard in any of the large cities
for less than 50c to 75c.
In order to secure these high grade
courses it has been necessary to sell
about 130 season tickets, the balance
necessary to pay expenses being se
cured by single admission tickets sold
at the door.
For the past two years the commit
tee having the lecture course in charge
have met with some difficulty in selling
as many season tickets as was neces
sary, some patrons preferring to pay
at the door.
Owing to this fact they have run be
hind the past year about S3O, which had
to be made up by the committee in
other ways.
It is not just or right that a commit
tee of four or five should have all the
labor of getting up the course and then
have to meet the deficiency when the
whole community had the benefit.
We believe that the reason for the
deficiency lies in the fact that the peo
ple of the community do not all feel a
due sense of responsibility for these
courses. It is the season tickets that
secure the course, not the single ad
missions at the door. If every patron
of the course felt that the success of
the course depended on his buying a
season ticket, there would be no dif
ficulty in continuing them. Believing
this to be a fact, a committee will call
on every family in the community with
in the next two weeks to secure as
many pledges as possible. If 100 tick
ets are pledged the course will be con
tinued. If this is impossible they will
be dropped.
We hope that every family and per
son in the community will feel the re
sponsibility of carrying on these lec
ture courses which have proved so sat
isfactory and helpful in this place, and
when the committee call they will meet
with a hearty response and encourage
