Weelc: of Entertainment and
Pleasure for Thousands of
Visitors and Home_^
Miss Florence Kirkpatrick and
Wilbur Williams Were the
Couple United in Mar
riage Today.
The public wedding at 4:00 o'clock
this afternoon was the feature of
the closing day of Keokuk's big fall
celebration. The bride was Miss
Florence Lillian Kirkpatrick of Keo
kuk, and the groom was Mr. Wilbur
W. Williams of Chicago, but formerly
of Keokuk. The ceremony was per
formed by the Rev. Burns of Fort
Madison in the presence of a crowd
which packed Main street and both
sides of Sixth street. The bridal
procession moved down Main street
from Twelfth to Third, and back to
Sixt-h where the ceremony was per
formed. A solid wall of humanity
packed the street and formed the
way through which the bridal party
was driven. The wedding and all of
its features were planned by Fred
H. Overton, chairman of the wedding
The bridal party left the Kirkpat
rick home on Orleans avenue between
Eighteenth and Nineteenth at 3:30
o'clock this afternoon. Overland
automobiles, furnished by the Over
land-Irwin company, conveyed the
party down the street. The proces
sion moved as far down Main as
Third, and around the Curtis statue,
going back to Sixth street, where
the platform had been moved to the
intersection of the street. The
bride's car came first The -bride
and groom, and minister rode in the
first car. Following came the car
containing the bridesmaids and
groomsmen, in the last car was
Mayor Lofton, Chairman Fred H.
Overton and a representative of The
Gate City.
At Sixth street the procession
stopped and the principals took their
places on the platform. There were
two bridesmaids and two groomsmen,
and a ring hearer. The procession
was proceeded by the Warsaw band
and the 'boy scout buglers. The mov
ing of .the platform to the intersec
tion of Sixth and Main streets made
room for the Mg crowd. The street
was packed on both sides and the
Sixth street intersection took care of
the overflow..
Big Crowd in City.
There was another big crowd in
Keokuk today for the closing event
of the week. This was Warsaw day,
oommunlty day, and grangers day.
There were representatives from all
of the surrounding communities here
and they enjoyed all of the program
provided by the Keokuk committee.
The usual program of free acts
was given this afternoon. The pro
gram for tonight will start half an
hour later than it has, been all week.
To Close Tonight.
The celebration will come to a! close
this evening in a burst of glory. It
will be carnival night on Main street.
The last chance to see the free shows
and the pay acts will be given and
the concessions will have a last
chance at the crowd.
Camera Fiends,
Send in Snaps
The fall celebration committee, as
a matter of statistics, would like to
have pictures of any features of the
big celebration. These will be used
in making up the programs for next
year and the committee would like to
have all of the camera fiends send in
a print of any act, any of the flights
or anything that would be of interest
and could be used in a statistical way
in preparing for a celebration next
year. The pictures can be turned in
to Secretary Fulton or to Chairman
Renaud any time next week.
Kahoka Band
Makes Big Hit
The Kahoka band of twenty-five
pieces which has been playing here
during the fall festival has certainly
made good so far as the KeoKuk peo
ple and their guests are concerned.
The band is directed by W. H. Bow
ers. Mr. Bowers has an organization
of thirty-two pieces, and twelve of the
members are young women. Five of
the young women are in the band ap
pearing here now.
W. H. Bowers, the director, has had
bands with the Barnum circus and
Buffalo Bill's wild west shows! His
home is in Elmyra, N. Y., and the com
mercial club there pays him a good
salary for directing the band organi
zation of that city, which supports a
municipal band. Mr. Bowers hap
pened two years ago to finish the sea
son at Lancaster, and through a
friend, was given a two year's con
tract at Kahoka. He has built up
.splendid corps of musicians there, and
the band is making good wherever
they play.
This is not the band's first appear
ance in Keokuk, nor will* It be the last
if popular sentiment has anything to
do'with the hiring of musicians. They
played tor the bg Shriners' parade
last year, and made a hit then. Thef
have played four days here and have
made a place in the hearts of the
Keokuk people and the thousands of
visitors who were here.
Reception by
Miss Ruth Law
Miss Ruth Law, the flying queen,
was "at home" to' Keokuk people and
the visitors this morning from 10 to
11 o'clock on the Elks club porch. A
number of the Keokuk people who
have been thrilled by her flights came
down this morning to meet Miss Law.
Miss Law makes her final flights in
Keokuk this afternoon at 5 o'clock
and tonight at 10 o'clock. SBe has
made some wonderful excursions into
the air this week and has had the
crowd gasping for breath on some of
her loops in the air. She received a
great ovation yesterday as she drove
along Main street at the head of the
Industrial and fraternal parade.
Arabs Like
The six Moroccan Arabs, with Mula
Ahmud as their manager, like the
way the Keokuk audiences are tak
ing" to their act. Mr. Ahmud sallies
broadly whenever people tell him
ttyey think the Arabs are fine, and he
is being told that many times a day,
sd you can imagine the gentleman
wearing a broad smile. The Moroc
cans were brought to this country a
year ago in May by Ahmud.
The old gentleman in the group is
seventy years old. In his palmy days
Ahmud said he could carry as many
as fifteen men. He does considerable
work now carrying around five.
Ahmud said that a lot of his coun
trymen were In the armies of France.
Chairman Renaud talked to Ahmud
in French this morning, and they had
quite a sociable little "gabfest." Ah
mud speaks six languages.
Thanks to?^
/v Weather Man
The weather man will receive a
resolution of thanks from the fall
festival committee. The resolution
will be written on parchment in gold
letters and will be framed in green
backs. The reason for all this is the
extra good brand of weather the
weather man has been turning out
this week. He surely batted 1,000 on
the weather. There were five perfect
days for the celbration. Not a cloud
to mar one of them, the temperature
plenty warm enough for the comfort
of everybody. It was the best cele
bration weather Keokuk has ever had.
Celebration Notes
The Kahoka band serenaded The
Gate City office this morning.
The Warsaw band was the new
band on the streets today.
A marriage license was issued to
day to Wilbur W. Williams, 23, of
Chicago and Florence Lilian Kirkpat
rick, 20, of Keokuk. This is the
couple who were married this after
noon at four o'clock. The license was
the present from the court house
Gordon and Reveni, who have been
giving such swell equilibrist stunts
here this week are to appear next
week at Quincy.
A fire alarm just before noon today
gave the crowd a thrilL The truck
went out Blondeau street, but many
of the visitors who had their auto
mobiles took up the trail.
Special arrangements have been
made to park autos in order that
occupants can see Ruth Law make

she leaves the city unexpectedly at
