Marriage of Rev. Jordahl to Miss Anna
EgffO Solemnized Thursday Even
ing at Synod Church.
The marriage of Miss Anna Egge,
of this city, to Rev. D. C. Jordahl,
pastor of the Norwegian Lutheran
Synod congregations at Norway Lake
and Sunburg, was solemized at the
Synod church in this city last
Thursday evening, at six o'clock.
Rev. J. N. Andersen performed the
ceremony in the presence of relatives
and friends that filled the large church
building. The nuptial music was fur
nished by Prof. Haldor Hanson, who
sounded the strains of the Lohengrin
Wedding March as the bridal party
entered. Two little ribbon girls,
Edna Kiland and Genevieve Hilleboe,
came first and stretched white ribbons
along the main aisle. Following them
came two flower girls, Helen Tallman
and Florence Dale of Renville, who
scattered flowers in the path of the
bride. The bride then followed, lean
ing on the arm of her nephew, Mr.
William T. Markhus, who gave her
away in marriage. As they ap
proached the altar they passed between
the lines of little girl attendants and
were met by the pastor and groom.
The bridal pair stood under a wedding
bell of white asters as the marriage
service was read.
Following the beautiful and impres
sive wedding service a reception was
held for the bridal couple, in the
church parlors in the basement. This
was tendered by the Ladies Aid so
ciety and the Young People's society,
of which organizations the bride was a
member. Nearly 200 guests were pres
ent to offer congratulations and to ex
tend their best wishes to the bride and
The church was beautifully deco
rated in fall flowers and greens. The
church parlors especially presented
an attractive appearance in their deco
rations of potted plants and cut {low
ers and also American and Norwegian
flags The tables at which the wed
ding supper was served were most ar
tistically decorated. Over that at
which the bridal party sat were sus
pended two red floral bells. During
the evening a program of speeches
and music was carried out. Addresses
were made by Revs. Andersen, Chr.
Pederson of Benson, Vaaler of
Grove City, Tolo of Belgrade, Dr.
-^^etoiWMT^PttSff^Gi^AL: -Httttstnnrt f
ville and Prof. Geo. Markhus of Min
neapolis. Rev Andersen opened the
speech-making by the presentation to
the bridal couple of a silver bread
tray on which were several pieces of
silver money. This gift came from
the Ladies' Aid society and was very
suggestive of the bride's long service
as a collector at the church coffees
given by the society and was presented
by the pastor in a humorous manner.
A solid oak leather upholstered rock
ing chair was a gift which came from
the Young People's society. The bri
dal couple received in addition to
these many handsome and useful gifts
which testified to the high esteem in
which they are held. The program
for the evening included a vocal solo
by Miss Helen Sather and a piano se
lection by Miss Laura Jorgenson.
Among the out-of-town guests were
the following: Mr. and Mrs. H. J.
Dale and Prof, and Mrs. G. A. Han
son, of Renville Rev. and Mrs. Chr.
Pederson, of Benson Rev. Vaaler, of
Grove City Prof, and Mrs. George
Markhus, of Minneapolis Rev. and
Mrs T. O Tolo, of Belgrade Ole
Boe and Miss Anna Railson, of Nor
way Lake.
Rev. and Mrs. Jordahl departed on
the late train for a wedding trip,
which included Duluth and other
points. Tbey are expected back this
week and will then go to their home
at Norway Lake. The best wishes of
a host of friends in this city will ac
company the bride, who has made her
home here for many years.

Four hundred and fortfy-four pupils
are now enrolled at the St. loud

The state board of equalization has
completed its review of real estate
values throughout the state. The
board has made a total increase in
these values of more than $26,000,000,
compared to the figures return by the
county boards, and an increase of
nearly $50,000,000 compared to the
figures of two years ago. Real estate
assessments as left by the board this
year, and compared with two years
ago, are as follows:
1906 1904.

Pheasants Are Here.
Two dozen Chinese pheasants were
received here last Thursday by Game
Warden Boyd from the state game and
fish commission and the birds were re
leased the same day at Green Lake.
They were all young pheasants and in
due time it is hoped that they will be
so propagated as to make a valuable
addition to the game birds of the coun
ty. There is a big fine for molesting
these birds before 1910. The minimum
fine for shooting them is $25 and the
maximum penally is $100, so the law
gives them good protection for at least
three years.
Re-opening Services.
Re-opening services will be held at
the Swedish M. E. church in Kandi
yohi next Sunday, when three meetings
will be conducted by the presiding
elder, Rev. Wagner, of Stillwater.
The pastor, Rev. Axel Anderson, will
also be assisted at these services by
Rev. A. E. Lihd of St. Paul, the for
mer pastor, and Rev. Lindstrom of
Atwater. It is expected that these
meetings will be largely attended.
The sessions will be held in the morn
ing, afternoon and evening.
The church building has recently
been remodeled and enlarged.
Taken to Fergus Falls.
Mrs. Joseph Lawler was taken to
Fergus Falls last Monday to receive
treatment in the state hospital. She
was accompanied by her husband and
his father, Jerry Lawler. The wo-at
man's mental condition has been such
the past few months that it finally be
came necessary to take the proper
steps for committing her to a place
where she could be properly cared for.
It is hoped that the unfortunate woman
will soon be restored to her former
good health.
Young Pooplo's Mooting.
The Young People's society of the

by Melvin Grangaard, a vocal solo,
with violin obligate, by Miss Rollef
son, a reading ^byMfssSy'se and a
piano duet by} Misses' Helen'' Sather

Why was a name selected almost
Identical with that of the Democratic
nominee, only a W being substituted
for an A?
Why was the petition held until five
minutes before the office of the secre
tary of state was to close on the last
day for filing?
Why did the Republican state com
mittee, within ten minutes after the
filing became public, have a denial of
any complicity ready to spread broad
cast over the state?
Will any one claim that the so-called
Socialist-Labor "Johnson" can have
any chance of election? Is he known

Tax Sales November12.
State Auditor Iverson has sent out
instructions to the county auditors for
holding the annual forfeited tax sales.
They will be held in every county on
Nov. 12, and nothing bid in for the
state in 1902 and succeeding years
may be sold for less than the full
amount of taxes, penalties, irterest
and costs. Owners may redeem by
paying the amount due with 12 per
cent interest from day of sale.
This will be the record sale held un
der the law of 1902. Last year about
$250,000 was realized from the sales.
The sale for Kandiyohi county will
be held at the county auditor's office
at ten o'clock a. m. on the above date.
This county enjoys the distinction of
being one of the counties of the state
in which there is very little land that
has been sold tor taxes. This speaks
well for Kandiyohi county taxpayers.

Swan Anderson, of the jewelry firm
of Anderson Bros., was the victim of
a runaway accident last Sunday even
ing in which he sustained among
other injuries the fracture of his right

horses ran into a telegraph pole and
became loosened from the buggy.
They ran for some distance, but were

spi dined in a fall from a tree last
Saturday afternoon. In company
with several other small boys he was
playing "A Siide for Life," and was

examination by a physician showed
that only his wrist had been injured.
It was a lucky escape'and may prove

boys who are in the habit of indulg

day before may have been implicated.
It is thought the work was done about
three o'clock in the morning. Several

Safe Was'Looted.
PRINSBURG, Oct, 9.—Mr. Stob's
store was robbed last Wednesday
night. TBe marauders gained an en
trance to the store by forcing a win
dow on the side of the building. The
window being quite low, the access
was easy. How the safe was opened
is a mystery, as nothing was broken.
The robbers secured thirty dollars in
silver, but left the small change. No
trace has yet been found of the guilty
parties, although suspicion runs high.

A Thing of Beauty.
"A Thing of Beauty is a Joy For
ever"—so says *an old adage, and'
it says truly. "A Humespun Heart"
as presented by Frank G. King and
his excellent company, is indeed "a
thing of beauty" in all that the word
implies. Here we have a natural
play, written in a natural manner
and acted in a natural manner. It's
naturalness is, in point of fact, its
chief charm It is said and truly
said, that "one touch of nature
makes the whole world akin" and "A
Homespun Heart" is fairly teeming
with touches of nature—in fact, the
play is one great touch of nature,
and, as such, touches a responsive
chord in every heart, Mr. King and
Company will appear in "A Home
spun Heart" at the Willmar opera
house tomorrow (Thursday) evening.
