Olson in the Presence of a Large Company of Guests— A Happy Event. One of. the most beautiful weddings ever witnessed in this part of the county was the marriage of Dr. Frank C. Heflin, Sweai City's only physician, and Miss Jennie V. Olson. The wedding took place at the residence of the bride's parents and the whole grove was decorated by over a hundred colored Chinese lanterns which made the grounds as light as day. The bride and groom stood under a pyramid of Chinese lanterns just outside the front door of the residence during the ceremony, which was prformed by Eev. 0, A. Landell, of •the Swedish Lutheran church of Swoa, and he used the beautiful English Lutheran service which had never before been heard in these parts.. At the conclusion of tho ceremony ho explained that Dr. Heflin was now a Swede and was henceforth to be known as such, as well as his business partner, E, M. Eyan, who had I also married a Swedish lady a week bei fore. The bride and groom wore the recipients of hearty congratulations by all tho guests and if all of the presents were to be mentioned it would take a column of space. It is enough to say that they were very beautiful and costly. Among the guests were some of the best people or Garner, Buffalo Center, Germania, Armstrong, Bancroft and Algona, The wedding supper was sucii a one as Mrs. C, A,' Olson only could prepare and if anything wasleftout wo cannot imagine what it was, At a late hour the guests left for their hoines, feeling that they had had a royal good time and wishing thebrjde »i}d groom long life, happiness and prosperity, TJP: BBPUBWOAN correspondent wishes tho happy pair smpotb sailing down the river pf time and extends them hearty congratulations, J, A.

Meinzer cjme to his relief and taken similar punishmant, allowing Mr. Mr. Wilson to make the fence, Mr, Meinzer, however, found the brute too much much for him to handle and called lustily to Will Elvidge, who came promptly to his aid, and by foiling the animal in true Spanish fashion, both succeeded in reaching tho fence, where Mr. Wilson was found in a dead faint. Dr. Beane was called to attend tne bruises, and we hope to see Mr, Wilson on his feet in good shape, M. Jas.
