It was for and by the people. The church was open to all and following the ceremony everybody was invited to the armory for a public reception. Fort Dodge turned out to do honor to the happy pair and from various parts of the country visitors joined in the festivities. In the church a choir of 26 trained voices heralded the wedding party. At the,altar Rev. DolHver, now nearly 80, read the civil portion of the Episcopalian wedding service and blessed hia son and daughter, Rov. Greene reading the religious service. The armory was a bower of floral decorations. From 8 till 10:30 o'clock an incessant stream poured in and out, 1,000 personally presenting their good wishes to bride and groom. The attendants were, maid of honor, Miss Gay DolHver; bridesmaids, Miss Augusta Lurrabee of Clermout, daughter of ex-Gov. Larrabee; Miss Betsy Chapln, Evanston, III.; Miss Anna McColm, Miss Bessie Doud, Miss Jennie Rlngland and Miss Fannie O'Connell. The best man was Geo. A. Pearsons, brother of the bride, of Los Angeles, lal. The groomsmen were Dennis loughlan, Will T. Chantland, Carl Smeltzer, Fred Loomis, John T. Cheney, Dr. C. J. Saundere, Dan K. Pearsons and V. B. Dolltver. The bride wore white satin en train, trimmed with point lace. The maid of honor wore green silk and white illusion. The bridesmaids all wore dresses made by a Chicago modiste, of white silk mull over green silk. The Messenger says: "The array of wedding gifts was he largest and most valuable ever seen lere. One of the most notable was a sliver set from the Iowa congressional ielegation, and bearing the names of >oth of the two senators and the eleven representatives." In a lengthy and peculiarly fitting 'eport Geo. E. Roberts speaks appreciatively of his friend's happiness. One mragraph sums it up: It was abeauti- ul wedding. It was a joyous, generous wedding. It was elaborate and stately n the forms which give dignity and beauty to the holy ceremony, and it was as erenerous and simple and inclu- ive as the neighborhood affairs in the West Virginia mountains where the on of the humble Methodist circuit- rider developed his broad and sturdy American manhood. Its beauties and }leasures were for all who felt interest nough in him and his to wish to share hem. The two seemed to wish to take all whom their lives ever touched into he happiness which overflowed their wn; hearts. ' Sam Greon Safe In Jail.
