Ihe evening s entertainment prov ed one of constant laughter, and a better pleased audience never tiled out ot the Theater. It was a merry party of about fifty little tolks of the town, who took part in the. wedding. The little girls in their long skirts with trains, were lovely, but they could not have been more graceful and dignified than their companions in their small black dress suits. The perfection with which the children acted their parts was remarkable. While a piano solo was being played, the guests were ushered down the aisle and onto the stage by the two small and very dignified ushers. Scott Barr and Roy Long. Among these guests, were the three, old maids, Gladys Reece, Blanché AiKen and Berneda Cummings, who 'came to the wedding only because they were curious; the two batch alors, Oscar Unstott and Keith Dam marell, the former a rejected suitor of the bride; Rosebud Brown, mother of the bride; Harley May and Mary Johnson, representing Mr. and Mrs. Tom Thumb, grandparents of the groom; and Mr. and Mrs. Midget, grandparents of the bride. Other guests were the cousins ot the tride, aunts of the bride and groom, and friends of the couple. After the guests had all assembled on the stage, and had been appoint ed to seats by the ushers, the bridal party proceeded down the aisle to the tune ot Lohengrin's Wedding March. First came the groom, small Paul Dammarell, with his oest man, Donald MacPherson. In their well pressed dress'suits, they looked very manly and dignified as they followed the usher onto .the stage. Next in line came the flow er girls, Alberta Sparber and Mar jorie Unstott, who were dressed in .white and carried small baskets of flowers, and the nngbearer small Gladys Fowler, who also was dress ed in white and carried a red poppy, the center of which carried the most important of all, the wedding ring. The bridesmaids had on pretty pink and blue dresses, and also carried flowers. Ihey were the little Misses Effie Doll Aiken, Eleanor Lutz, Marjorie Newton and Jean bunkle. The beautiful young bride, Vivian Wegner, came down the aisle lean ing on the arm of her father, Ches ter Fowler. She was dressed in a pretty white dress, with a net veil, and she carried a large bouquet of yellow crysanthemums. Following tier was the maid of honor, little Miss Marv Ellen Dunhle. Last, but not least, came the min ister, the most important character William Holt, impersonating the minister, came up the aisle accom pànied by his wife, Phyllis Cum mings. After the bridal party had all assembled on the stage, and were all in their proper places, the min ister went through the ceremony with much pomp and grace, and al though it was in no sense like the real one, it was extremely clever. Several song? were sung by the guests, among those, Lillian Long aang "Oh, Promise Me*', Nettie Mae McDowell sang, "1 Love you Truly", in POTLATCH BOOSTERS G0T0J.EWIST0N Big Road Meeting Held There Last Evening. Representatives from nearly all sections of Potlatch ridge left on the [afternoon train tor Lewiston, yesterday, to attend a meeting at the Lewis-Clark Hotel at 6 o'clock in the evening. The meeting was called by the Lewiston Commercial Club to consider the proposition of putting a highway through trom Lewiston to Kendrick. The tollow ing article concerning the meeting was puulished in the Tribune, Thurs day morning; This evening at 6 o'clock, at the Lewis-Clark hotel, a conference, at dinner, will be had by the Lewiston Commercial club and other citizens interested with a large delegation from Latah county, consisting of the members of the board ot county commissioners ot Latah county and people from Kendrick,< Juliaetta, Cameron and Leland. The purpose of the visit is to in terest the people here in securing the co-operation of this city and county in the completion ot an im portant connecting link. It appears that the Kenalrick highway district is building a road to Juliaetta, all of which has been financed and is under way. At the same time, the Latah county commissioners and the Juliaetta district are building a road to the Latah-Nez Perce county line on Potlatch creek, a distance of eight miles. Ftom the Nez Perce-Latah county line, to which point the above road reaches, to Arrow Junction, a dis tance of eight miles, is a section not provided for, all being situated in the Clearwater highway district which is in Nez Perce county. This is not of expensive construction and is of easy grade. It is regarded as problem for Lewiston and Nez Perce county to work out in the financing of the construction. Those who understand the situa tion declate that there can be no better road investment of tunds, considering the value that the com pletion of the improvement will be to this place. It is largelv a Lewis ton business problem, for the open ing up of a valuable territoiy trib utary to this city, at a comparative ly small cost. Among those who are to be present will be the Nez Perce county commissioners and the commissioners of the Clear water highway district. Harley May, as grandfather of the groom sang "When You and I were Young Maggie", after which his wife, Mary Johnson, gave the selec tion, '1 Cannot Sing the Old Songs". Ralph Blevers, the grandfather ot the bride sang "Silver Threads Among the Gold", and Juanita Stanton, a guest, sang, "When Look in the Heart of a Rose". After the usual congratulations bad been extended to the very young couple, and the three old maids bad jealously sang their song, "The Three Spinsters", refreshments were served, and the wedding party bioke up while Max Oldfield and Iva John son, guests, sang the verse of "Pd Love tc Live in Loveland ', and tne happy c jwd joined in the chorus This event will long oe remember ed by the children that took part in it, as one of the most enjoyable time of their childhood days, and it will not be them alone that will remem ber, for the older folks have express ed the opinion that it was one ot the most enjoyable evenings of their lives.— N. G. A. it We Likes You, Santa X m l*, Potlatch Mill Shut Down The Potlatch Lumber company's big mill at Potlatch was closed down Saturday night, and will remain clos ed until about March 1, says the Star Mirror. A statement made to the Star-Mirror by A. W. Laird, general manager of the company, over long distance telephone this afternoon was to tltte effect that the company had intended operating for a few weeks yet, but the severe storm, coupled with the car shortage, made it neces sary to suspend operations at once. While the demand for lumber is fairly good, Mr. Laird stated, the car shortage has resulted in the yard filling up, necessitating an abrupt termination of activities, both at the mill and in the woods, for the winter. The company has been greatly dis commoded by the inability to secure cars the past fall, but the manage ment expects a more favorable con dition before spring and it seems cer tain that it will not be necessary to prolong the shutdown beyond the first of March. Several hundred men will be thrown out of employment by the sudden ces sation of work and with winter just coming on, this is considered one of the unfortunate features. However, it has been the policy of the company to take care, in so far as possible, of men with families, during any time that the plant is not in oper ation. day ly the of ti * Crocker-Miller M iss Eula Crocker,. daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Crocker ot this place was quietly married last Sat urday afternoon to Donald Miller ot Herrington, Wash.

A synopsis ot the play follows: The affairs of Beverly, a typical New York business man, have reeehed a very critical stage, due to his reckless and extravagant family.

As it looks to me now, it s just a matter of hours, and then---". Egnaz Flaig has been appointed as business manager of the high school play, and Frank Brocke as property man.

It has been years since a Decem ber was ushered in with a snow storm of such proportions as the present one. We don't attempt to camouflage. There is a foot ot the beautiful covering over our turnip patch right now. Spokane pleads guilty to but 9 inches. Some sec tions won't admit they have any snow at all. All bosh. And what is worse, with a foot of snow now, what may be expected by the first ot March? But cheer up—Easter will fall on April 1, and that means an early spring, say the wise guys. It also falls on the day when lots of the wise guys get fooled, too.—Deary Press. Walter Clark brought in a load of second hand shoes the first of the week and turned them over to Jos. Perry, the second-hand man. There were several hundred pairs of the shoes, representing the accumulation of the many years Mr. Clark has re sided on his ranch on Fix Ridge. The shoes ranged from infant's size to grown-ups and all the stages of youth's footwear from the beginning of the family to the present day are represented in the collection. Mr. Clark started in storing the shoe« away as fast as discarded and kept it up to the present time. If th» shoes were new ones he could set up business with a good sized stock of shoes on the shelves.—Juliaetta Record.
