A Nice Wedding.
A quiet but pretty wedding
took place at St. Mary's Catho
lic church up the river last
Thursday when P. A. Miller, a
prominent Foxholm farmtr was
wedded to Miss Elizabeth Am
rien, the accomplished daugh
ter of a Questad farmer.
The bride was attend pd by
Miss Lena Brunnin? of Minot,
and the groom by William Am
rien, brother of the brid*.
After the ceremony the bridal
couple (trove to the residence of
Val Englehart where a table was
spread iu abundance with rare
eatables of the season.
The wedding march was play
ed by Mrs. Matt itteicheck of
Grano and the"MuskesroOrches

afternoon and eveniugr. The
Grano guests included Mr. and
Mrs. Guorge Scofield nnd Mr uti'l

alog houses will be forced to
change their business methods.
It is figured this plan can be
made to cost the catalog houses
as much as $100,000 a month
apiece with practically no return.
Mr. Kleveland says that over
1,000 lumbermen have already
begun the campaign. The big
mail order houses have learned
of the plan and are taking every
precaution to weed out their
mail, separating the prospective
purchasers from those who are
fighting them. With Hamilton
arid every other county in Iowa
o.ganized, however, the big
houses will be obliged to increase
their force to open the mail. The
Iowa retail merchants figure that
if their mail is thrown into the
wa«te basket, where much of it
will doubtless go. it is inevitable
that honest inquiries from many
prospective customers will find a
resting place there also.
It is announced that at the
national lumbermen's meeting iu
Cincinnati this summer this plan
will be put into effect in every
state of the union.
