More Wedding Bells
Word comes from St. Paul, that
there last Saturday L. C. Reno
and Miss Gwendolyn Mann were
wedded. Bride and groom left
soon after on an extended trip
east, to L. C.'s Pennsylvania
home and other points. Later
they expect to return for the
winter to Minneapolis, and in the
spring they will make their home
on the groom's farm near Thuii
They had started from her
home, some twenty miles north
of town, as it were, just for a lit

even having forgotten his coat.
And on the way to town that

understanding found its expres

it over with that life apart
from one another was but the
shadow of the substance, nothing
else would do but have the knot
spliced firm and strong. Thus
they called oo Judge Gross about
9 p. m., Saturday, with the re
quest to make the agony as short
as possible. Nothing could have
pleased Hizzonor better, but cau
tiously he first inquired about
that license to wed. Blank
amazement on their faces—didn't
quite know that such a document
is vital. Thus the Judge, still
hoping against hope that he
might gather in that delectable
stipend, counseled long and seri

license to so likable a young
couple as they are. But a tele

away from his bailiwick, while
frantically Cupid beat his tattoo
in a pair of smitten hearts.
There was nothing else to do, but
wait. Meanwhile midnight had
come on, and then the young peo
pie suddenly remembered that
for a wedding there should be
becoming attire especially since
they had now become convinced
that they should take the very
next train for Aberdeen, there to
plight their troth. And that
is where Cupid did Bill Hoising
ton a good turn- This worthy
merchant, wife and child gone

fully upon his righteous couch
after a hard day's work, when
suddenly the pounding at his door

contains the following, in regard
to Sunday closing of post offices
"That hereafter post offices of
the first and second classes shall
not be open on Sundays for the
purpose of delivering mail to the

shall not prevent the prompt de
livery of special mail
The communication explains
further, that under this law we
must close the general delivery,

lock boxes and discontinue all de

a complete day of rest on Sundays
Provision is made however,
that all outgoing mail, shall be
made up and dispatched without
delay, consequently all dispatch
mail will be handled as
