Bauer, with their three youngei children, attended the wedding Tuesday morning at 10 o'clock nt SI. Patrick's Catholic church, Clear Lake, of Mrs. Bauer's nephew, John Brandt, son of Mr. and Mrs. Gus Brandt, Clear Lake, formerly Wesley, to Opal Thompson, of Kensctt. The couple were attended by John's sister Vorna and the bride's brother Arley. The bride was attired in a white satin gown, with train and long veil, and she carried a hou- liiet of pink and white roses. Her bridesmaid wore a wine-colored dress. A wedding breakfast was served at the bride's home to a large number of relatives and riends. After a short honeymoon the newlyweds will farm near r :iear Lake. 'Wesley Group to Minnesota— Ruth Haverly, Maurine Hanson, and Edmond and Everal Loebig drove to Llsmore, Minn., last week Tuesday for a visit till the following Wednesday at Mrs. Frank Loebig's, and Everal remained there to help his aunt in a store till after the Christmas rush. The Wesleyans were among guests at a wedding dinner and dance given by Mrs. Loebig's daughter Coletta and her husband, Edw. Voss, Lismore, who had been married that morning at 9 o'clock at St. Anthony's Catholic church, Lismore. The newlyweds are now farming near Lismore. Editorial In Register Pays Tribute to Dr. Jos. H. Edge Some time ago the Algona Advance commented on the loss to Algona of Dr. Joseph Edge, one of three highly respected ministers who had shifted from that community to others in a very brief period. This shifting of pastors is part of church procedure, and of course has its advantages, though it does wrench the feelings of friends. Dr. Edge, however, did not shift to another pastorate. He went to the presidency of Dakota Wesleyan university at Mitchell, the only. Metho• dist college in South Dakota. He Is the thirteenth president. The college Is one that, '. In common with many other of the not-so-large Institutions, has had to face bravely hard times. It has had, however, a fine past, and should have a fine future. We somewhat belatedly join, the Algona paper in congratulating the college and its new president, both. President Edge is another lowan who is advancing and doing a good work. The foregoing short editorial from Monday's Des Moines Register is reprinted by way of tribute to Father DaTern, Dr. J. H. Edge, and the recent Baptist pastor, the ministers named in the Advance editorial. Since then Algona has lost another progressive and popular minister, the Rev. C. Paul Carlson. It is unusual for any town of Algona's size to lose so many ministers in so short a time. The thought occurs that it is not to Algona's discredit that the town cannot keep its ministers, but, on the contrary, vastly to Its credit, in that it attracts and trains the kind of minisers who are sought for larger opportunities. W. W. Waymack, editor of the Register & Tribune editorial pages, undoubtedly wrote the tribute here quoted, and it is of interest to note that he and Doctor Edge are oldtime Morningside college mates. Home from Ollie— Mr. and Mrs. J. T. Meurer returned last week Tuesday from Ollie, to which point they had gone on receipt of news of an accident in which Mrs. Meuror's father, Peter Brass, suffered cracked ribs and iruises.
