Another Couple of Popular Young People in Beach Are the Contracting Parties
- - - - -
On Wednesday morning a bridal party wended its way to the St. John’s Catholic church in this city, where to the inspiring strains of Mendelsohn’s wedding march Miss Eileen Kathrine Madison and Glenn Albert Wallace marched up the isle to meet Rev. Father Wolpers, who spoke the words which joined them in the holy bonds of wedlock. Only immediate relatives witnessed the ceremony.
The bride was attended by Miss Marguerite Wallace, while the groom was supported by Daniel Madison. The bride was attired in a most becoming gown of navy blue silk pan velvet and carried a bouquet of bride’s roses. Miss Wallace as bridesmaid was attired in navy blue charmeuse.
After the ceremony the party returned to the home of the brides parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ed. Madison, where a bountiful wedding breakfast was in waiting. The dining room was most attractively decorated in pink and white, the color scheme being followed out in the table decorations, roses and carnations being used for center pieces.
Mrs. Catherine McCarthy presided at the organ during the services at the church. Glen Wallace is too well known to the citizens of Beach to need any introduction, having grown to manhood practically in this city. Last fall he went to Joplin, Mont., where he had been engaged as grain buyer for the Equity grain company, and is made good in the position.
Mrs. Eileen Wallace has even a more extended acquaintance than her husband, having been connected in some way with one business enterprise or another for a number of years in Beach and during the past few years filling most satisfactorily the position of chief operator and bookkeeper of the local telephone exchange. By her genial disposition, courteous treatment and willingness to oblige she has made for herself a host of friends who will be sorry to lose her from their circle of acquaintances.
The many friends of the happy couple here extend to them best wishes for a long a happy life, and in which The Advance wishes to join. Mr. and Mrs. Wallace left on No. 2 today for Minneapolis, where they will spend their honeymoon, after which they will go to Joplin, Mont., to make their future home.

Ceremony Performed at Mott, N.D. - Bridal Trip Will Be Taken to Minnesota
- - - - -
N. F. Bartholome, one of the proprietors for The Model Clothing & Shoe Co. stores at Beach, Sentinel Butte and Belfield, and one of our most popular young business men, was untied in marriage at Mott today, to Miss Rose Bannon. None of the details of the ceremony was obtainable at the time of going to press, other than that the happy pair will go to Zapata, Minn., for a two week’s honeymoon and visit with relatives.
Mr. Bartholome came to Beach, a few years ago as a clerk in the J. J. Bartley store and his efficiency and good business judgment at once placed him in the front ranks of desirable clerks, to the end that Mr. L. B. Westby, general manager of The Model stores secured his services. Later a reorganization of the company was made and Mr. Bartholome was given a place on the list of proprietors. He has won for himself an enviable reputation as a progressive, wide awake business man and a good citizen.
Miss Bannon has a large acquaintance in Beach, having been employed in the E. E. Dickinson store for some time. She is a young lady of many accomplishments and the people of Beach will extend a hearty welcome on her return here as her future home.
Friends of the happy couple extend best wishes for a life of happiness and prosperity and in this expressing of good will we trust The Advance may be included.
They will occupy the house on the north side formerly occupied by J. R. Water, which the groom has made ready for occupancy.

Beach Man Dies at Dickinson

H. C. Larson went to Dickinson several weeks ago to secure surgical help for his ailment but his weakened condition would not permit an operation. Blood was taken from Jerney Mezek and given the patient, but only a temporary help was obtained. He passed to the great beyond some time about noon today.
Mr. Larson was about 38 years of age and came to the Golden Valley nine years ago, taking up a claim in the Lame Steer district. Some four years ago he was married to Miss Nellie Murry, who preceded him to the great beyond a little over a year ago. Only a few months ago he was married to Miss Rosa Kobel, who survives him. Mr. Larsen has a brother, J. P. Larsen, a sister, Mrs. G. O. Hemness in the Lame Steer district, Mrs. Albert Halloway in Canada, a father and mother at Canova, S. Dak., besides other relatives in South Dakota, to whom is extended the sympathy of the community in their loss.
Mr. Larson had accumulated considerable property since coming to the Golden Valley, owning two farms and a town residence. His genial disposition and big heartedness has made him many friends, who will mourn his untimely death.

Two lives Destroyed - A Baby at Wibaux and Frank C. Brown of Medora
- - - - -
Sunday morning of last week the home of Ernest R. Page of Wibaux caught fire in the early morning and the family were nearly suffocated before making their escape. Mr. Page had started a fire in the stove and then went back to sleep, being awakened by smoke and intense heat. He rescued all his family with the exception of one little tot, and as he was approaching safety with it he was overcome and cannot tell how he made his escape from the building, but the child was gone. What remained of its charred body was taken from the basement after the fire.
Mr. Page was taken to Glendive to the hospital and is reported to be getting along as well as could be expected.

Last Wednesday the partly frozen body of F. C. Brown, a homesteader near Medora, was found by neighbors lying on his bed in his cabin home. It is thought that the storm about that time and which completely covered his cabin, had stopped up his stove pipe, causing the gas to escape in the room in which he was sleeping and was the means of death. Mr. Brown is the brother of Jay Brown of Sentinel Butte.
The funeral services were held from the Congregational church at Sentinel Butte on Thursday afternoon.

On Friday evening, February 16, Mr. and Mrs. Edward Hoverson of this city passed the twenty-fifth anniversary of their wedded life and friends to the number of nearly 100 gathered at their home to assist them in properly celebrating the event.

John Howell, Dead
- - - - -
The many friends and acquaintances of John Howell, while not surprised, were pained at the news of his death, which took place at the hospital in Dickinson, Monday, March 5.
Mr. Howell was born in New York, January 19, 1853, and was therefore 64 years of age at time of death. He moved with his parents to Illinois when a baby, and in this state he was left an orphan when only a child, going to live with an aunt where he grew to manhood.
Eight years ago he came to Montana and took up a homestead west of the Beaver, near Edgehill, on which he made final proof and three years ago sold out on account of failing health. During his stay in the west he made his home much of the time with either W. A. Sprague or August Kastien. Three years ago he made a profession of religion and has quietly lived a Christian life since that time. He went to the hospital about Christmas time, but his weakened condition made death inevitable. The funeral services were held at Dickinson, J. G. Duling, pastor of the Congregational church of that city officiating. Interment was made in the Dickinson cemetery. He leaves a brother in Illinois and a son and daughter in St. Louis, but none of them were able to be present at the funeral.
A. E. Kastien and Mrs. A. W. Kastien and daughter of Beach were the only immediate friends who escorted the remains to their last resting place.

Harry W. Kastien Laid at Rest

Paralysis of Intestines Following Operation Immediate Cause of Death
- - - - -
It is with a feeling of sincere sorrow that we are called upon this week to chronicle the death of Harry Kastien, which took place at the Dickinson hospital last Thursday evening at 11:35. On the previous Saturday, Harry underwent an operation for the removal of a kidney stone and appeared to be doing nicely until Thursday, when it was deemed necessary that another operation be performed, which disclosed the fact that his bowels were paralyzed and the patient had no chance for life. His mother, father and brother Robert were at his side when the end came until the end, which came at 11:35, and Harry passed to the great beyond with a smile upon his face. His remains were brought to Beach on Friday afternoon, accompanied by the grief stricken parents, and were met at the depot by a large number of our citizens, who took this opportunity of manifesting their respect for the deceased and sympathy for the bereaved parents.
The funeral was held Sunday afternoon at the home and was largely attended. Rev. Keniston of Bismarck, former pastor here and an especial friend of the family, preached the funeral sermon and left a most forceful, convincing and helpful message. Friends of the family and the deceased contributed a wilderness of flowers as a small token of their respect and esteem.
Harry Kastien was the son of Mayor and Mrs. A. E. Kastien, and was born in Bunker Hill, Ill., a little over twenty-one years ago. He came to Beach in July 1908, and this city has been home since that time. His warm hearted, kindly and generous nature made him many friends and it is with extreme sorrow that they learned of his demise just as the door of young manhood and usefulness in the world was being opened. For some months past he had been reading law in the offices of Keohane & Jones of this city and was preparing himself for that profession. Only a short time before his death, he passed a rigid physical examination for membership in the Woodmen of The World, became a member of that order and the local camp escorted his remains to their final resting place, consigning it to the grave with the Woodmen ceremony and saluting it with the grand honors as a final parting.

Mrs. J. W. Brinton Passed Away
- - - - -
Death Came at the Home of Her Parents in Los Angeles, California
- - - - -
The citizens of this community were filled with sorrow and surprise last Friday when a telegram was received by E. Lloyd of this city, announcing the death of Mrs. J. W. Brinton, at Los Angeles, Cal., the result of blood poison following child birth. About three weeks ago Mr. Brinton was advised of the serious illness of his wife and immediately left for California, and was at her bedside when death came. Last fall Mrs. Brinton and Mrs. E. Lloyd went to Los Angeles to spend the winter with their parents, and was also with her sister during her sickness and demise. The deceased was also a sister of Mrs. F. E. Near of this city.
Mrs. Brinton came to the Golden Valley in 1906 with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. Peak, and in 1911, we believe, was married to J. W. Brinton. Two children resulted from this union, a boy some four years of age and a girl of one month. These with her husband, parents and two sisters of the immediate family left to mourn her departure.
Mrs. Brinton was an employee of this office for several months after its institution and we learned to know her as a girl of sterling character and strong attachments. Her amiable disposition made warm friends of those with whom she formed attachments and her demise will be a source of deep regret to her many friends and acquaintances in the Golden Valley.
At time of death she was about 26 years of age and it seems doubly sad to have so young a life cut short at the time when it would seem that it held so much of promise for the future.
The funeral service was held Saturday afternoon and she was laid at rest in the cemetery at Los Angeles.

Monday morning word was received here that William Schermerhorn had gone to his eternal home. This came as a great surprise to his many friends for only a few days ago he was in our city and on Saturday last walked to Golva from his farm, a distance of about seven miles. On returning home he complained of not feeling well and went immediately to bed, dying Sunday evening.
Mr. Schermerhorn had been troubled with appendicitis for a number of years but he has put off the operation and it is thought this was the cause of his death. He was born in Eureka, Wis., on March 24, 1862, and was therefore just a little over fifty-five years of age at the time of death. He was married at Rochester, Minn., to Miss Anna Tubbs, in 1887. To this union three children were born, two boys, who died in infancy, and one girl, Marvel, who is still at home. Besides his wife and daughter, he leaves an aged father and two brothers to mourn his demise. The funeral services were held at the home Tuesday morning and were conducted by Rev. Burns of Sentinel Butte. The remains were then brought to Beach for shipment to Stewartville, Minn., for burial, and were accompanied by his wife and daughter. Mr. Schermerhorn came to the Golden Valley some eight years ago, locating in the Rocky Butte district, and has many friends who will mourn his sudden demise.

Dickinson Couple Re-United After Three Years - Husband Drafted Into Russian Army

Dickinson, N.D., Aug. 7 - On a farm near Dickinson Mr. and Mrs. Alexander Papelu today are enjoying a honey moon three years delayed by the fortunes of war, years filled heart-rendering anxiety for the woman, separated from her husband three days after their marriage, when, although an American citizen, he was drafted into the Russian army.
Papelu arrived in Dickinson yesterday from an Austrian war prison to join his wife. He was freed through efforts of his attorneys here because he was an American citizen.
Papelu went to Russia from Dickinson to wed the woman of his choice. Under protest he was drafted and passed through the early campaigns in Galicia. He was captured by the Germans when the fortress of Przemysl surrendered in 1915, ate roots and grass in a German war prison, while hundreds of his comrades died around him of starvation and exhaustion and finally was sent to an Austrian prison, where he fared better.
He was finally released, paid 3 cents a day for the 17 months he was imprisoned and given safe conduct to Switzerland, coming from there direct to America. He owns a big farm near Dickinson.

He leaves to mourn his loss his affectionate parents and one brother, Eugene, besides a host of relative and friends. The parents with the little body were met in Beach by relatives Saturday morning and taken to the home where the last sad rites were held Sunday afternoon at 2:30. Rev. A. R. Bosworth of Beach preached a very comforting sermon on the text, “Suffer little children to come unto me and forbid them not, for of such is the kingdom of heaven.” The choir from Brenizer sang some appropriate songs, after which a cortege of automobiles went to the last resting place in the Beach cemetery. The large attendance and the beautiful floral offerings bore witness of the love felt for this little one.

Aged Resident Passes Away
- - - - -
Mrs. Margaret Harth Died at Home of Her Son in Beach, After Short Illness
- - - - -
Mrs. Margaret Harth, a resident of our city for the past six years, died Sunday morning, August 12, 1917, at the home of her son, Louis.
Margaret Schuster was born in a village near Nurnberg, in the Kingdom of Bavaria, on July 25, 1844. In 1873, at the age of 29, she came to the United States, and on June 29, 1875 she was married to John Harth in St. Anthony’s church in Dehner’s Settlement, near Earl Park, Indiana. Shortly after their marriage, this sturdy couple moved to a farm near Ambia, Indiana, where for 35 years they pursued their career of honorable industry, they being among the early settlers of that part of Benton county. The development of the middle west may be credited in a large measure, to the efforts of the German pioneers of whom Mrs. Harth was a noble example. They brought with them to their homes in a new country the habits of thrift and industry that made, not only for their own advancement, but carved a wonderfully rich empire out of the wilderness. They brought also respect for law and order, and strong religious convictions, qualities which made them desirable acquisitions in any neighborhood, and a tower of strength in the nation.
Four children were born to Mrs. Harth, all of whom survive: John H. Harth, Mendota, Ill.; Mrs. Karl Schmidt, Caldwell, Kansas; Mrs. A. J. Foos, Golva, N.D., and Louis Hart of this city.
The funeral was held Tuesday morning, August 14, 1917, at St. John’s Catholic church in this city. The sermon was delivered by Rev. Otto Wolphers and high mass was celebrated by Rev. St. J. Ciesleweicz of Wibaux, Mont., and she was laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery at Beach.
“After life’s fitful fever, she sleeps well.”

Suicide Was A Confidence Man
- - - - -
Scattered Bogus Checks From New Orleans to Canada, Then Kills Himself in Bowman County.
- - - - -
Phillip Smith, who committed suicide at the home of his brother-in-law, Ed. Hanson, southeast of Bowman on July 10th, was no cheap sport in the way of being a confidence man, and he had reasons for committing suicide other than disappointment over his wife refusing to live with him.
The real fact about Smith is that he was an all round confidence man, forger, etc., and was in such demand that there was a reward of $1000 offered for his capture. When Smith was here last spring he presented a check of $500 at one of our banks. The teller refused to cash it, unless someone he knew was good endorsed it. Ed. Hanson, a brother-in-law of Smith indorsed the check. Smith got the money, and later Mr. Hanson had to made good in the amount of $500.
In July Smith came back, and it is said told Hanson it was all a mistake and reimbursed him for the money he had paid out.
Where did Smith get the money? A letter from the New Orleans branch of the Burns Detective Agency, which has been sent out to all the banks, would seem to answer that question. The letter says:
“We are desirous of locating one, Phillip Smith, who succeeding in defrauding a member bank in this section on June 6, 1917 , by the use of bogus checks to the extend of $1750, which were honored and for which he was given ten $100 Travelers Checks, and $750 in cash. He entered a $50000 check for collection and immediately following this, he came to New Orleans, cashed all ten of the Travelers Checks and left for parts unknown.”
The agency had learned of Smiths suicide, and wrote to inquire if the report was correct. They were informed that Smith was dead and buried.
The J. H. Kvalness, coroner and undertaker, had a letter from E. J. Fisk, of Edgemont, S.D., a Methodist minister, making inquiry about Smith. He states that he very foolishly endorsed a $60 check for Smith, and that he had to pay it. He does not expect to be reimbursed.
Doubtless numerous other jobs will turn up in which Smith was implicated, as he was apparently a very smooth proposition. - Bowman County Pioneer

Free Jap Bride in Dickinson
- - - - -
Dickinson, N.D., Aug. 30. -
Dickinson is in a furor over a brand new Japanese bride who has just arrived from Nippon with her husband, Sosku Abe, local restaurant man. This is Abe’s second matrimonial venture.
His first wife was an American girl whom he wed in Billings. Although an artist of unusual ability, she contracted habits which led to her celestial husband divorcing her several months ago, when he divided his property with her. Among other things there fell to her the Star Restaurant here, which, by a queer quirk of fate, was closed by the sheriff the same night Abe returned with his new bride, and as he left the train here he was confronted with the spectacle of his former wife’s being carried from the building by Captain Rhoda of the Salvation army, who hopes to win her back to useful womanhood.
The new Mrs. Abe was Kikiiyo Sakurai. She was bought and paid for before she ever set eyes upon her husband-to-be, who met her at the docks in Seattle when her boat landed. All negotiations had been carried out with her parents, through the Japanese consul at Chicago.

No Enoch Arden Stuff For Chris
- - - - -
Chris Satre is not disposed to play the role of Enoch Arden, but when he returned to his wife in this city, whom he had left many years ago, and found that she had married another, he went before the state’s attorney and swore out a warrant for the arrest of her and her husband No. 2, who have resided in Fargo for the past three years as Mr. and Mrs. Robert McPhee.
“Mr. and Mrs.” Robert McPhee were arrested yesterday afternoon by Chief of Police Louis Dahlgren and Sergeant Morton Sydness at 408 Ninth street north. They are charged with adultery. Both were turned over to the sheriff and spent the night in the county jail. They will be given a preliminary hearing Monday morning. McPhee stated to the police last night that he married Mrs. Satre in good faith, having been informed that she was a widow. When placed under arrest yesterday afternoon he turned to his “wife” and said:
“Why I thought you said your former husband was dead!“ He appeared overcome with surprise at the developments.
Satre appeared in Fargo early last week to locate his wife from whom he had been separated for the past six years. He had heard that she was married and when he found out where she lived with the new husband he filed a complaint with the state’s attorney yesterday morning.
Mrs. Satre and PcPhee were married in Fargo three years ago. Last night the woman stated she thought her husband had been sent to prison for life and would never come back and that it would not be necessary for her to secure a divorce.
McPhee is a common laborer. Mrs. Satre has one child, a boy eight years old. Mrs. Satre was raised near Kindred, where her parents still live. She is about 35 years old. McPhee is about 42. - Fargo Courier-News

Miss Hazel Stout Answers Last Call
- - - - -
The sad death of Miss Hazel Stout occurred last Saturday morning at her home twenty-three miles southeast of Beach. Miss Stout was born in Dell Rapids, Minn., on May 14th, 1889, and was therefore a little past twenty-eight years of age at the time of death. When about thirteen years of age she suffered a severe attack of scarlet fever, since which time she has never fully regained her health. She came to this state ten years ago with her people. About a month ago she returned from Rochester, Minn., where she had went for an operation, and pneumonia resulted from the taking of a severe cold. Everything possible was done to preserve her life, but her weakened condition made it impossible to rally under the ravages of the disease.
The funeral sermon was preached by Rev. Orchard of Dickinson, and interment was made in the Beach cemetery.
She leaves a father, mother, two sisters and four brothers to mourn her departure, to whom is extended the sympathy of the community.

The menu, prepared by the new Callendar chef, was elaborate and was enjoyed to the utmost by those who had been bidden to the feast. Thirty-four covers were laid. Before and after the banquet music and social chat made the evening merry, the Misses Steiner and I. H. Claggett rendering music that was both tuneful and full of pep. The only time Col.

Obituary

Defiance, Ia., Dec. 12 -
Jacob Peter Muller was born in Norden, Hanover, Germany, September 3, 1841, died at his home in Defiance, December 9, 1917, aged 76 years. His parents were Peter and Jennie Muller. His father was a canal boatman and plied the rivers of Germany. He was one of a family of nine children of whom only one, Mrs. (Henry) Fluss, of Decatur, Ill., is living. Mr. Muller received his education in Germany. He was brought up to farm work and in 1866, Mr. Muller and Bernard Hulsebus came to the United States and located near Peoria, Ill. Here Mr. Muller worked out at farm labor for four years. He was married to Miss Matilda Hulsebus, August 8, 1870, at Secor, Ill. After their marriage Mr. and Mrs. Muller rented a farm with Mr. and Mrs. Bernard Hulsebus and they farmed in partnership, living in a two room house together, each family occupying a room to itself. The house was a frame building, unplastered. All the produce of the farm belonging to the two families was divided equally, even to the eggs.
Mr. and Mrs. Muller came to Iowa in the spring of 1889 and settled on the old farm in Greeley township two and a half miles southeast of Defiance. Here they labored on their own farm the next eleven years and by hard work, frugality and good management they built up one of the best farms in this part of the state. Mr. Muller was a good farmer and stock man. After thirty-five years of hard work he was able to retire from active work and came with his wife and children at home to Defiance in the spring of 1900, to spent his declining days in comparative quiet. Mr. and Mrs. Muller were the parents of nine children of whom eight are living: Peter, Jennie, Albert E., and Fannie of Defiance, Ia.; Mrs. Hannah (L. E.) Curl of Beach, N.D.; Carl and Mrs. May (D. C.) Williams, of Sioux Falls, S.D., and Mrs. Eola (S. M.) Kielley, of Le Mars, Ia., one daughter, Ella, having died at Forsyth, Ill., in 1888 in her ninth year.
His last illness lasted nearly a year. He leaves his widow, three sons, five daughters, thirty-one grandchildren and one great grandson, one sister and a host of friends. The funeral services were held from the United Evangelical church in Defiance and were conducted by the Rev. H. J. Holtzapfel, assisted by the Rev. E. B. Scoggan and a quartet composed of Messrs. Robert Wickersham and Ross Penniston and Mesdames Warren Reams and William Wheately. The body was laid to rest in the Defiance cemetery.
Mr. and Mrs. L. E. Curl of Glova, who were present at the last sad rites, returned home Thursday.
