No End of Interesting' Things
in Art and Places of
Historical Interest.
The French People Are Thrifty
and Prosperous Beyond
All Others.
We reached Paris on the 1st of May
and our first step was to engage pas
sage to New York on the Steamer
Adriatic, sailing from South Hampton,
England, on the 12th. We were losing
interest in the old world and our minds
turning more and more towards home.
Our time until we sailed was divided
about equally between Paris and Lon
don. Heretofore our time had been
devoted almost wholly to sight seeing,
art galleries, museums, but in Paris
and London we divided our time be
tween these attractions and shopping.
Shopping, however, proved a failure in
Paris. We found outside of ladie's hats,
gloves, handkerchiefs, silk hosiery and
a few notions, surprisingly high prices,
and confined our dropping to a large
spring hat and a small bottle of toilet
We either reached Paris at the wrong
time of the moon, or got out of bed the
first morning on the wrong foot, for we
did not like it. Our impressions were
bad to start with and did not get bet
ter. There is no end of interesting
things in art, and places of historical
interest, to say nothing of the parks,
gardens and boulevards, which are the
finest in the world, but with all these
there is something about the city that
is not pleasing. The people seem cold,
selfish and ungracious. Many of the
streets are dangers to human life
cabs, carriages, omnibuses running un
restrained. Automobiles are driven
through the busy streets at a pace any
where from twenty to fifty miles an
hour. On evey hand there is plainly a
lack of control and regulation such as
are found in a well ordered city. Here
for the first time we saw two story
omnibnsaes drawn by horses and double
decked auto busses and Btreet cars,
and enjoyed our rides on top of them.
Paris is widely known for its public
gayeties of shady character, but they
are largely a thing of the past, and
such as there are left are mostly pat
ronized by strangers and I am told are
fiat futures. So much is to the credit
of Paris, but beyond question the moral
tone is low, and there is a lack of such
government and social conditions as
make for the moral uplift of the people.
What Paris needs is a five years'
course under Teddy Roosevelt, But
Paris is not France, any more than
New York is the United States.
The French are a great people, more
than -seventy per cent of them own
their own homes, generally with a
small plat of ground. They are thrifty
and prosperous beyond all others, and
best of all they know how to enjoy
themselves and make the best of their
prosperity. They enjoy life as they
go along, and know when they have
enough of a fortune and quit work.
They are badly governed. In politics
they are a failure, but as homebuilders
they are great, and much is due to the
industry, wisdom, love, loyalty and
devotion of the mothers, wives and
daughters. When France had to raise
the enormous war indemnity to Ger
many, her people paid it out of their
own pockets and were soon lending
money to every other country.
We thought we had had our fill of
paintings and sculpture but our visit to
the vast galleries in the Louvre proved
interesting beyond anything we had
seen and regretted our lack of time to
do them and the numerous other galler
ies justice. The Triumphal Arch and
Napoleon's Tomb are masterpieces of
art and architecture. The streets and
drives, the parks and boulevards afford
a busy scene of life, luxury, magnifi
cence not to be matched elsewhere.
Our companions on the trip have
been Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Snow their
young son and niece. The Snows are
old travelers having been abroad many
times, their last trip was around the
world. Their experience, their famil
iarity with foreign languages, their
superior knowledge of art, history and
the galleries and show places and most
of all their genial companionship and
pleasing personalities have made our
trip pleasant and profitable beyond
anything we had hoped for. We were
truly sorry to lose them in Paris, Mr.
Snow sailing for New York, and Mrs.
Snow and the young people, leaving for
Hanover, Germany. Mrs. Marshall
and I were left orphans, so to speak, in
a strange land.
Our trip from Paris to Bologne was
full of interest. Our ride across the
English Channel was a rough one and
we were glad to land at Folkstone on
the English Coast and found ourselves
for the first time on the trip among
people *Ko could speak and understand
our language and felt very much' at
home. Our hotel proved most excel
lent. It is managed by an American
lady, and that night we delighted our
palates with the first good coffee for
nearly two months, and the next morn
ing we surprised our stomachs with an
American breakfast and bid good-bye

London was a pleasing surprise to us.
We found the people pleasing, courteous
and obliging. The streets beautifully
paved, (mostly with wood), clean and
comparatively noiseless, and in the cen
tral parts free from surface cars and
their attendant noise. The crowds and
vehicles are handled by the policemen
with great care and consideration for
pedestrians* It is easy and cheap' to
get about by cab, taxicab, taximeters,
autobusses horse omnibusses and under
ground tubes as they call them. Lon
don is altogether the best managed and
governed city we have seen and we
enjoyed our stay. There are countless
places of historical interest in and
about London, and it would take
months to do them justice. Of these
the Tower of London is the greatest,
the scene of no end of historical events.
Here kings and queens of England
have been made and unmade, crowned
and beheaded. At the National Mus
eum is the greatest historical and
scientific collection in the world. Cov
ering many acres, the National and
other art galleries are loaded with the
grandest productions in paintings and
sculptures of the old and modern mas
ters. We saw London from the side
walks, the cabs, the two story omni
busses, and double decked autobusses.
We rubbed shoulders with the English
people on the streets, in the hotels,
stores and theatres and we liked them
and they seemed to like us. We saw
King Edward, when he returned from
Parte, at Buckingham palace. He was
in an open carriage, looked like his
pictures, was very courteous, took off
his hat to us and others and while he
did not like Teddy Roosevelt, say he
was "delighted." He looked it.

One day we rode out to Windsor
castle and back, twenty-eight miles
one way, on top of a tallyho drawn by
four fine horses changed every seven
miles. Windsor is one of the king's
country homes. We had a chance to
see the scale on which kings do things
and on the way out and back we had
an excellent panorama of an English
landscape. Jt was a feast for our eyes.

Circus Is Coming.
Exciting hippodrome contests will be
the big feature of the Norris & Rowe
Circus this season. The contests contain
an element of danger to the participants
and is just the added spice that seasons
the finish of the long and varied progrm
of the big show. In the present sea

tests involving blooded pedigreed rac

will vie in interest with a reproduction
of the games of ancient Rome. Men
and women drive at breakneck speed,
trios of racehorses attached to chariots.
There will be Roman standing races,
flat races, contests of endurance be
tween man and horse, vaulting and
hurdle races over high barriers, bare
back races, jockey acts, rough riding
and many feats of expert equestrianism
will be shown. Norris & Rowe are.

endeavor and consequent excitement

are always satisfying and Norris &
Rowe have grown so big and success

to exceed them in any portion of their
ideal circus program. Each season
some little show with a high sounding

them, threatens opposition but the pub

a bit more for the money expended.
The Norris & Rowe circus provides for
amusement, entertainment and instruc

whose confidence has never been be

Mr. Otto C. Born and Miss
Rhoda McCartney Married
Last Evening.
Seventy-Two Guests Present.
Rev. Ralph. T. Fulton
Like an echo of the traditions of the
theme that is old, yet, ever new as told
and retold in the song and story of
every tongue since the world began was
the beautiful wedding that took place
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. H. C.
McCartney on Wednesday evening,
when the marriage of Miss Rhoda Clara
McCartney to Mr. Otto Carson Born
was solemnized. Rev. Ralph T. Fulton
officiated, using the beautiful Episco
palian ring service.
Seventy-two guests were assembled
in the spacious rooms which were tast
fully decorated with cut flowers and
ferns. Without, the starry tranquility
of the glorious June night had just
settled upon city and plain, a symbol of
peace and joy. Within all was brilliancy,
beauty and expectancy. Just past the
hour of eight the bridal procession de
scended the stair. First eame cunning
little Zella McCartney bearing the ring
in a great, half open rose to the groom.
Next came the five bride's maids, the
Misses Maude, Pearle and Maybelle
Tyrrell, Stella Wilkins and Beth Covert
linked together by streamers of satin
ribbon, and the matron of honor, Mrs.
James F. Nichols, bearing pink car
nations. Last came the bride, un
escorted, bearing brides roses, to com
plete the scene with her natural charm
and loveliness,heightened by the inspir
ation of the moment. To the strains of
Lohengrin rendered by Mrs. H. V.
Taber, the bridal party approached and
formed in the east window of the draw
ing room while the impressive service
was read and the responses were made.
Mrs. Taber sweetly sang a touching
and appropriate littl$ reverie of her
own composing, music by G. W. Becker,
entitled: "Just as it'tfced to Be."
Exactly at 8:10 Rev. Fulton pro
nounced the final words that linked two
hearts by the bonds of love sanctity
and made the happy couple man and
wife and for a merry season they were
deluged by the sincere congratulations
of the guests.
If there was any guest either gentle
man or lady who did not make the most
of the opportunities the occasion offered

A delicious buffet luncheon was
served the guests while the bridal party
was seated at table in the dining
room, the bride and groom occupying
what proved to be the strategic posi
tions. A sort of black hand band
of conspirators were scattered all
through the house feverishly awaiting
the end of the repast to mete out to
the victim various horrible fates as a
penalty for breaking into the ranks of
the benedicts. A sentinel, supposedly
vigilant, eagle-eyed and relentless was
stationed in full view but presto! be
tween two forks full of salad his
charge vanished like fog before the
morning sun. In the commotion the
bride also disappeared. The conspira
tors ran aimlessly about the house and
to other houses but to no effect. The
objects of their search had been
swallowed up in the night and the
great city where only a Sherlock
Holmes could have traced them by the
trail of glee they muBt have left in
their wake.
There were many- theories of the
escape, from a tunnel out of the base
ment to an aeroplane off the roof.
There were mutterings and dark allu
sions to treachery and corruption in
high places, but after all, they said,'
what's the use, it was a get-a-way so
smooth that the getees deserve to be
let alone.
The out-of-town guests were: Mr.
aftd Mrs. Fred Borthwick, Warrens

of the groom, Exira, la. Miss Trola

Huntington and Master Ed son Kyle of

Missouri Valley, la. Misses Genevieve
and Gertrude Lill, Hutchinson, Kan.
Mrs. Frederick Glover of Minneapolis,
Minn. Mr. and Mrs. Fred D. McCart

The newly wedded couple are well
known in Oakes and beloved of a wide
circle of Mends. The groom is one of
oar successful real estate men, being
secretary of the W. A. McCnltoy Land
Co. The bride, who is slater of H. C.
MeCartMy aada nieer af Mrs. Thos.
F. Marshall, has for several years been
an efficient teacher in the public schools
of the city. The bride was the re
cipient of an unusually numerous array
of beautiful and useful presents in
cluding cut glass, Bilver, pictures,
china, brass, linen, toilet articles,
kitchen furniture and yet other things.
Mr. and Mrs. Born will not leave the
city at present but will spend their
early honeymoon putting in order their
newly completed cottage on Fifth and
Elmstreets. Early in July they will go
to Detroit Lake, Minn., for an outing as
the guests of Hon. and Mrs. Thos. F.

sterling young couple its heartiest con
gratulations and best wishes far joy

Man of Abont 35 Years Is Fonnd
Dead in Soo Yards.
An unknown mqn was fdund dead in
a box car in the Soo yards Saturday
morning. The attention of the author
ities was called to the matter by Mr.
Herzog, who had been informed by a
pal of the dead man. It is understood
that the pal was a scrape acquaintane
of a day, and after telling the story
seems to have vanished from sight.
Coroner Homedew arrived from El
lendale about noon and made an exam
ination into the matter. The coroner
deemed that an inquest was not neces
sary as there did not appear to be any
attempt at foul play. The body was
prepared for burial by Undertaker
Boardman and Sexton White laid the
remains away in the potter's field of
the Oakes cemetery.
The man seemed to have given away
to consumption without a straggle.
The two men were headed for Bis
marck. There was' not a scratch of
paper to be found to indicate the dead
name or where he hailed from.
