C H. Howard went to Dickinson yesterday where his friends claim he will join the great army of Benedicts, the lady to the contract being Miss Mabel Gilbert of Sentinel Butte. “Christy” evidently thought he would surprise the boys on his return but in some manner they learned of his intention. Mr. Howard has been an employee at the Northern Pacific depot in Beach for over a year and is an energetic and worthy young man. Miss Gilbert is the daughter of Postmaster Gilbert of Sentinel Butte and is one of the accomplished and popular young ladies of that city. Warmest congratulations are extended to the happy couple if the rumor of their marriage proves to be correct.

C. T. Rimel of This City and Mrs. Bertha Busse of Princeton, Wis., Are One
- - - - - -
For some time past the friends and acquaintances of C. T. Rimel have been accusing him of having been married on the quiet, but the happy event did not take place until Christmas day, when the Rev. C. S. Thorpe performed the ceremony. The wedding took place at the home of the groom in the southeast past of town and housekeeping was begun at once. Mrs. Busse is a native of Princeton, Wis., but met Mr. Rimel at Westhope, this state, some three years ago while on a visit to her brother, with the result as above stated. The fact that the lady came to Beach December 13 led to the supposition that the marriage had taken place before, but until Christmas day she was the guest of Mr. and Mrs. L. J. Pickett. Mr. Rimel has many friends in the Valley who admire him for his honesty and sterling qualities of character and while extending congratulations to him offer a warm and sincere welcome to his wife.

E. E. Noble Receives News of the Sudden Death of His Nephew In New York
- - - - -
Last week E. E. Noble received a telegram which announced the sudden death of his nephew, Harry W. Carr, at Buffalo, New York. Mr. Carr was 30 years of age and was an employee of the Smith Premier Typewriter Company at Syracuse, N.Y., but had been sent to Buffalo, N.Y., to take the place of a young man who was going home to see his mother during the Christmas holidays. Mr. Carr, with others in the boarding house, were attempting to put a fellow to bed who was uproariously drunk and in the endeavor the victim became possessed on the idea that he was being robbed and succeeded in getting hold of his revolver. Carr closed in on him from the rear but the fellow put the gun over his shoulder and fired, the bullet entering Carr's body just above the heart. Death resulted while on the way to the hospital. In the writeup of the tragedy the Syracuse Herald spoke very highly of the ability and character of Mr. Carr and also stated that he had been married last August.

George D. Knox Passes Away At His Home After a Long Illness
- - - - -
Taps have been sounded for another old soldier and the ranks of the Grand Army have been diminished by one more of Grant's veterans.
George Knox, one of the best known of Stewartville's citizens, died at his home Monday morning, December 21. He had been ill since October, but has been out several times since he was first taken.
The deceased was a native of Tioga, county, Penn., where he was born in 1837. In 1853 he removed to Wisconsin with his parents, and two years later came to Minnesota, settling in Filmore county.
In 1861, the Civil War broke out and Mr. Knox enlisted in Co. C., 3rd Minn., volunteers.
After a campaign in the south, his regiment was ordered back to Minnesota to aid in quelling the Indian outbreak. This duty performed, the south again became the scene of operations. Pea Ridge, Vicksburg, Murfreesboro and Nashville, were some of the battles in which Mr. Knox took part. He was never wounded in all the four years of his service, but was in the hospital at one time with a fever.
After the war Mr. Knox taught school and filled various offices. He came to Stewartville seventeen years ago and has made this home ever since. In 1887 he attended a G.A.R. encampment at St. Paul and in a sham battle wherein the old soldiers showed how troops go into action, was wounded in the eye, destroying the usefulness of that member for the rest of his life.
He leaves, besides his wife, two daughters: Mrs. J. O. Dickon and Miss Belle Knox; two brothers, Charles of Sentinel Butte, N.D., T. F. of Jackson, Minn.; and three sisters. The latter are Mrs. Anne Belle Holton of Minneapolis; and Misses Frances A. and Florence H. Knox, both in the Chicago University.
Mrs. Charles Knox has been here for the past week, and the other brother and sister arrived later.
The funeral was held on Wednesday afternoon at 2:30. Rev. Jones officiating, the Grand Army assisting.
Mr. Knox was not a member of any church, but he was one of those men whose lives might service as examples for other to follow. He was kindly, honest, and always considerate of others. He was an enthusiastic G.A.R. man and at a meeting of that order a short time ago was elected Commander. His loss will be keenly felt by the post here, the members realizing that he was one of their best men. The sympathy of the entire community is with the family. - Stewartville (Minn.) Star.

H. J. Carroll Married at Gardner, N.D. to Miss Clara Base of that City
- - - - -
Mr. H. J. Carroll returned to Beach last Sunday evening after a short absence and brought with him a wife in the person of Miss Clara Brase. They were married at the latter's home at Gardner, this state.
Mr. Carroll first came to Beach five months ago as foreman on the new school house building and has become so well satisfied with the opportunities here that they will make this city their home. Lots were purchased north of the track and last Monday afternoon the erection of a residence 24x24 with an ell 12x24 was begun . When time was called Tuesday evening the structure had been framed, boarded in and shingled, and in a short time will be ready for occupancy. This almost equals the record of building in Minneapolis where it is claimed that a residence was begun in the morning and the family partook of their evening mean in the completed structure.
Mr. Carroll's former home was in Munsey, Ind., but five years ago next April he came to Fargo, N.D. where he secured employment with H. E. Allen, the contractor. He proved himself an efficient workman and during the past four years has occupied the position of foreman on many of his large contracts.
Miss Brase has lived in the state for a number of years and is a lady of great personal charm and many accomplishments. A cordial welcome is extended to Mr. And Mrs. Carroll as well as best wishes for future happiness and prosperity.

- - - - -
Last Friday, January 22, was the birthday of Mrs. E. F. Smith and her son Angus prepared a little surprise for his parents by asking about forty friends to drop in and spend the evening. The affair was a complete surprise to Mrs. Smith, who did not realize just what was being done until quite a number had gathered.
The evening was spent in an informal social way, the older folks playing cards while the young folks enjoyed the more active pastime of dancing. At the proper time the guests prepared and served refreshments, which concluded a remarkable pleasant evening.

Fatal Tank Explosion
- - - - -
Shock is Felt Throughout City and Noise is Heard by People Some Distance in Country
W. H. Gilmore Dead
- - - - -
Kastien's Machine Shop Considerable Damaged - Workman Alone at Fault
- - - - -
The Advance is called upon this week to chronicle the particularly sad death of one of its citizens as the result of an explosion, of a tank which was being repaired at A. E. Kastien's machine shop.
Sometime during last summer the tank was made for Kranick & Walker for the purpose of carrying gasoline and kerosene to their breaking engine and it was found that a slight leak existed in the partition between the two compartments. It was accordingly brought to the shop about three weeks ago for repairs. The head of the gasoline end had been removed, the partition covered with solder and the head replaced. In this operation the tank had been placed in almost every conceivable position and part of the time at least, the intact caps had been removed, so it would naturally be supposed little, if any, gas remained in the tank. On Wednesday, after completing some other work, William Gilmore was told to complete the work on the tank. After doing so he placed water in the gasoline compartment and to ascertain whether or not it leaded through the kerosene end removed the cap to the compartment and lit a match, the better to see the inside of the tank. A terrific explosion followed which was heard all over town and by many people who were some distance from the city.
The head of the tank was blown off and as Gilmore was standing immediately in front of it, it carried him to the corner of the building, a number of feet away, breaking one leg and one arm and severely injuring him internally, from the effects of which he died Wednesday evening at about 9:30. The end of the tank struck the side of the building some ten feet from the starting point, breaking a 2x4 off at two places, tearing several boards loose and racking the building at every joint. Medical aid was immediately summoned and everything possible was done, but to no avail. L. A. Cram was standing sufficiently close to the tank to have his trousers ripped open up to the knee, but was uninjured.
William H. Gilmore came to Beach last July from Peoria, Ill., where he had been employed by the Colean company in Mr. Kastien's department. He was 34 years of age and leaves a wife at Beach, a mother and two sisters at Lincoln, Neb., also a sister at Strang, Neb., and one at Geneva, Neb. He was a member of the Knights of Pythias lodge of Oxford, Indiana, at which place he at one time operated a blacksmith shop of his own, and it is more than probably that this society will make arrangements for burial. He carried accident insurance in the Phoenix company of Detroit, Mich., and life insurance in the equitable of New York. The body will be taken to Lincoln, Neb., for interment.
Mr. Gilmore was an industrious, sober man and a loving husband, and deep sympathy is felt for the wife in this her hour of great affliction.

A Sad Death
- - - - -
A Young Business Man of Beach Stricken Down With Typhoid Fever
- - - - - -
Last Saturday evening the citizens of Beach were shocked and pained to learn that J. F. Loughton had passed away about 6 o'clock, after a three weeks illness with typhoid fever.
Mr. Loughton was born at Lafayette, Ind., twenty-seven years ago last June and much of his younger life was spent there, but several years ago he went to Glendive, Mont., where he was employed as a plumber. While there an acquaintances was made with Miss Maude Brown, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. E. Brown, who live four and a half miles east of Beach, which ripened into an affection which brought about their marriage in October, 1907, at Glendive.
Since being married they have traveled a great deal, but some time ago they decided to settle down and have a home and with this idea in mind had selected Beach as the place. At time of death he was having a bakery building erected in the eastern part of town and expected to open business as soon as completed. The funeral was held Sunday afternoon from the school house, Rev. Douglas officiating, and was largely attended. His wife is a member of the Royal Neighbors and that organization attended in a body. Mr. Loughton was a member of the Improved Order of Red Men, but carried no insurance. He leaves besides his wife, a mother at Lafayette, Ind., one sister in Chicago, and one sister in Ohio. His sorrying wife and relatives have the sympathy of the entire community.
After learning of his serious illness his poor, aged mother started from Indiana to be with her boy, but did not arrive here until a few hours after the funeral and this condition was made known to her by accident just as she alighted from the train.

Burned to Death

Parents Also Burned in Their Attempt to Rescue Child From Burning Building
- - - - -
The 2-year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Harry Sharman was burned to death in a fire at the Sharman home, six miles west of Belfield, Wednesday afternoon and the father, who tried to rescue the unfortunate child, is now in the hospital suffering with severe burns.
The fire started from an over heated stove when the child was the only one in the house. The mother went to the hen house to gather eggs and returning a few minutes later found the interior of the house in flames. She made an attempt to rescue the child but her clothing caught fire and she was forced to give it up. Mrs. Sharman called her husband, who was working in the field. She succeeded in removing her burning clothing before being burned.
On reaching the house Mr. Sharman made a heroic attempt to save his little son and did manage to bring the child from the house, which was then nothing but a mass of flames. The child was horribly burned and died about twelve hours later, after suffering intense agony. Mr. Sharman is still in the Arnold hospital at Belfield, suffering with severe burns about the face, hands and arms.
The funeral of the little child was held in Belfield Thursday. The parents are terribly grief-stricken and the mother has been nearly frantic since going through the awful ordeal. -- Dickson Press.

A Sudden Death
- - - - -
Exhibition of Strength Causes Injury Which Results in Operation and Death
- - - - -
For some time past Harvey Fleet has been employed by the Golden Valley Telephone company to haul supplies to different points along line of construction. Last Saturday some of the men were making quite an ado over putting a telephone pole onto the wagon and Mr. Fleet jokingly remarked that if they would get out of the way he would load the pole with one hand. He done the job all right, but in the exercise of his strength strained himself and Dr. Smith was called to attend him. He decided that an operation would be necessary and Monday morning the patient was sent to the hospital at Dickinson. When the operation was performed it was found that the appendix had been perforated, evidently caused by a chronic disease at that point which caused a weak condition but of which Mr. Fleet had never complained. A telegram to his brother Wednesday evening announced that he was in a very critical condition and asked him to come to Dickinson at once. Death came at 5 o'clock Thursday morning.
Harvey Fleet was born in Meeker county, Minnesota, in August, 1863, and was therefore 45 years of age. Later in life he was married and one child, a boy, was born to them. Mr. Fleet came to this part of the country six years ago and has been in Beach or vicinity since the town was started. He leaves a mother at Hutchinson, Minn., seven brothers and five sisters to mourn his death, only one of which M. W. Fleet is in this state.
The body was shipped to Beach last evening and if arrangements can be made funeral services will be held at the United Lutheran church on Saturday afternoon, Rev. Essig, conducting the services. Interment will be made in the Beach cemetery.

Irvin Herrick Meets Death While Attempting to Cross Beaver
- - - - -
Yesterday the people of this city were horrified by the news that Irvin Herrick was drowned Wednesday afternoon in Beaver creek near Charles Elliott's ranch.
Irvin Herrick and his sister Pearl were employed at the Elliott ranch and Mrs. Lloyd Callender came over on an errand. While she stayed at the ranch only a little while the creek had raised considerably in the meantime and Irvin offered to carry the stuff back for her, which offer was accepted. On the return trip he took the ford about half a mile above the house and his sister and Mrs. Callender were on the opposite bank. At the first attempt the horse he was riding refused to make the attempt and his sister asked him if he thought that he could make it alright. He replied: “I can if the horse can.” The horse was then put into the water and when part way across seemed to have been caught by a current, for it rolled over and was taken out of sight under the water. It made its appearance again some distance down the stream and made shore safely, but Mr. Herrick was never seen again, not even his hat coming to the surface.
Neighbors were immediately notified and Miss Herrick started for Beach, a distance of twenty miles, to notify her parents. She notified people along the way and a search is being made for the body today. After riding twelve miles her pony gave out and a farmer brought her into town. Irving Herrick had been in the Golden Valley only a few months, but had earned a reputation of industry, sobriety and sterling worth. He was 22 years of age and was a member of the order of Maccabee's, at St. Cloud, Minn., in which society he carried insurance.
His parents have been here only a short time and his death is an unusually severe affliction. Besides his parents he leaves four sisters and four brothers to mourn his untimely demise. He was one of nine children and his death is the first one in the family. Sincere sympathy is extended to them in this their dark hour of affliction.

A very happy event took place last Wednesday at the home of Mrs. Rollins, who lives a few miles northeast of town, the occasion being the marriage of her eldest daughter, Cora Mae Boardman, to Oliver Frederick Brown, of Oldham, South Dak. The marriage was the culmination of six years acquaintance and courtship.
Promptly as the clock struck 12 the bridal party descended from the upper room to the soft, sweet strains of a festive march and took their place under a canopy of cedar, especially arranged for the occasion. The beautiful and impressive wedding ceremony of the English Episcopal church, of which the bride is a member, was then read by Rev. Alex Douglas. In clear unflattering tones the happy pair gave their vows that made them man and wife for life.
After the ceremony the invited guests sat down to a sumptuous dinner, where they regaled themselves amid a flow of wit and merriment. The bride is an accomplished and talented young woman who has won the good will and opinion of all her friends and acquaintances.

Henry Kirch Caught Under the Debris and Instantly Killed
- - - - -
This section was visited by a wind, hail and rain storm early Tuesday morning, as the result of which one man was killed and grain damaged to a more or less extend in spots.
Henry Kirch came to the Golden Valley last March and was occupying the granary on his father's farm near Burkey during the putting in of the crop. His cousin Paul was with him, his wife and child remaining in Wisconsin for the time. The granary is a building 28x16 feet, one and a half stories high and was very well built.
During the storm Tuesday morning Mr. Kirch was last seen standing in the doorway and shortly afterward the granary was blown to pieces. Either he had stepped out of the building or was blown out when the building moved, for a few minutes later he was found under the root of the building, dead. L. E. Curl who lives only a short distance from Mr. Kirch, saw the building go and a few minutes later was on the ground to see if any assistance was needed and removed the roof from the lifeless remains. He was instantly killed. This was proved by the examination by Dr. Museus during the day, who was sent out to attend the cousin. Mr. Kirch's neck was broken and the skull crushed.
L. E. Curl immediately came to town and sent a telegram to his family at Mazomanie, Wis., and also had a licensed embalmer come up from Dickinson to prepare the body for burial. Later in the day instructions were received to send the body east, in accordance with which it was shipped Wednesday.
This accident and death is an especially sad one. His wife, child, father and mother were expected to have arrived here today, when steps would be taken to put up a modern residence on the farm, and according to previous arrangements his brother was to have been married Thursday. Among the brightest anticipations of a happy reunion for the family and almost at the very altar of his brother's nuptials comes the word of his violent and untimely death. Surely in the midst of life there is death.
The deceased was a member of the German Lutheran church.
The heartfelt sympathy of this community is extended to his sorrowing relatives in the east.

A Horrible Death
- - - - -
A Once Prosperous Rancher Becomes a County Charge - Cancer the Cause
- - - - -
Samuel Lowry died at the pest (sic) house in Beach sometime during Wednesday night from cancer of the face. For some years Mr. Lowry was one of the prosperous ranchers of Billings county, owning a ranch about fifteen miles from Medora, and had accumulated considerable of this world's goods. Only a few years ago he was a member of the board of county commissioners and is credited with being at one time, a director of a bank at Belfield.
Some years ago a cancer started on his face and it has grown steadily worse until his death. Money had been lavishly used to employ the best of medical aid, but to no avail. Recently he became so bad that he was refused room and attendance at the hospitals and last Saturday he came to Beach, where he has since been under the care of Drs. Museus and McNab. Owing to his condition it was impossible for the doctors to secure the services of anyone who would attend him and while everything in their power was done to make him comfortable, of necessity he was much of the time alone. Sometime during Wednesday night he passed away and yesterday was buried in the Beach cemetery.
It is reported that a wife and family are still at the ranch.

The marriage at 12 o'clock on Saturday night was performed by the Rabbi of the congregation, David Lesk, in the presence of ten of the leading Hebrew merchants of Fargo, in accordance with the Jewish rites, and was followed by a celebration of the event which lasted all night. Charles Glatt filled the place of best man and also a father to the groom, who has been in his employ for some time. On Monday August 2nd, the couple went to Moorehead and were married there by the judge of probate in accordance with the customs of the United States.
Mr. Rosenburg first met Miss Finkelstein in New York City four years ago and a warm attachment was formed immediately. Since leaving the city, a correspondence has been kept up with the above result. Mr. Rosenberg came to Beach last fall as manager of the clothing establishment of Charles Glatt and in fact made all arrangements for its installation, which shows the high esteem in which he is held by his employer and his confident in his ability. Since coming here he has enjoyed a large and increasing trade and by his business methods and geniality, has won an enviable place for himself among the people of the community.

The Acid Route
- - - - -
William Watson Takes Carbolic Acid and Was Dead When Found
- - - - -
Last Friday, William Watson came to Beach to secure some of the necessary machinery to harvest his crop with this fall. He did not get things loaded and ready for the return trip until Monday evening and during the night it rained sufficiently hard to make the roads heave. This delayed the start Tuesday morning and for some time he joked and conversed with his acquaintances in about his usual way.
Perhaps the last person with who he conversed was William Moyer of Burkey, who left him sitting on the hay in an open stall at Ulcers & Merrill's feed stable. Mr. Moyer was absent on an errand about forty-five minutes and when he returned he found that Watson had drank about two ounces of carbolic acid and was dead when discovered. He immediately reported the case and Dr. Smith made an examination, but nothing could be done. After drinking the acid he had replaced the cork in the bottle, which he held in his right hand when found.
No special reason can be found for his rash act so far as we can learn. He was one of the early homesteaders in the neighborhood of Williams and was getting along fairly well. He has a large crop this year and good prospects. During his last trip here he drank heavily, but on the morning of his death he is reported to have been perfectly sober. Whether or not he was disgusted with himself for drinking or some other cause was responsible for his act will never be known.
He leaves a wife and one child here. The body was taken to Williams for burial.

Archie Sanders of Mountain Grove Mo., Meets Instant Death Yesterday
- - - - -
During Wednesday night Marshall Pickett was called to the depot by the announcement that a man had been found dead on the tracks. Assistance was obtained and the remains taken to the fire hall where his identity was learned by letters on his person. It was also learned that he had a brother Walter at Mountain Grove, Mo., and a telegram was sent notifying him of the accident and asking for instruction as to the disposal of the body. He will be buried here.
Mr. Sanders has been in town only a day or two, having previously been employed in the gravel pit at Glendive, which position he quit to enter the harvest field. When found he had only ten cents in his pocket and it is probable that he was attempting to steal a ride west when the accident happened.
It is thought the first section of No. 51, freight, west bound, was the train selected as he was discovered while No. 6, passenger, east bound, was taking coal, by the rear breakman.
Death was instantaneous, the first injury being on the head where a large gash was in evidence over the left eye and the skull fractured. Marks along the track showed plainly where he had been dragger about 150 feet on the ties, during which process he was terribly mangled. Nothing about his former life has been learned as yet.

Death of T. O. Thorbus
- - - - -
Well Known in the Golden Valley Where He Had Interest
- - - - - -
It was a shock to the people of this city to learn this morning of the death of T. O. Thorbus, which occurred at 4:10 a.m. today, Tuesday, September 28.
He had not been well for a week or ten days and his symptoms only a few days ago developed into a sever attack of typhoid fever. His heart action was weak and from the first his physician, Dr. Sarles, considered his condition very critical. The worst apprehensions were realized, and yesterday it was seen that he could not survive long. Death came swiftly and surely.
He was one of the bright, active and intelligent business men of the city, reared in the city of Sparta, known to everyone and popular with all for his genial and kindly nature, and his untimely taking away is profoundly regretted and felt as a personal loss to everyone.
His full name was Timothy Oscar Thorbus, son of the late Andrew Thorbus. He was born in Bloomingdale, Vernon county, September 13, 1866, the family later moving to Sparta, where the father established the business of manufacturing and repairing wagons, and when he grew up, Tim, as he was familiarly known, was his main assistant and succeeded him in the business. Of late years he has been occupied in the management of his estate and various business interests. Physically he was of large proportions and great strength, but, as is sometimes the case, succumbed to disease which a less powerful man might have withstood.
He was married January 27, 1903, to Miss Jennie Johnson who, with the little daughter, survives him. There are also living his mother and three brothers, Alfred of Blair, Wis., Will of St. Louis, and Ralph of San Francisco.
He was one of the board of directors of the Bank of Sparta, and also of the Dodge & Davis company, a Mason and member of the Knights of Pythias. - Taken from a Sparta paper.
Mr. Thorbus has been a frequent visitor to this part of the country for several years and at times has been heavily interested in land in the Valley. At time of death he was part owner of the building recently burned in Beach and which was occupied by the Model Clothing & Shoe Company. He has many friends in the Golden Valley to whom the announcement of his death came as a shock and great surprise. He is favorable spoken of by all who knew him.

Silver Wedding
- - - - -
Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Mikkleson Are Guests of Honor on Their Anniversary
- - - - -
Last Sunday a large number of the friends and acquaintances of Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Mikkleson took their home by storm about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, the occasion being the twenty-fifth anniversary of their wedding day.
The friends gathered at Larsen's store and went from there to the finely appointed home of Mr. and Mrs. Mikkleson on the hill, where they were received by Mrs. Mikkleson, Mr. Mikkleson having previously been taken in charge by one of his friends and kept busy until after the company were nicely in possession of the place.
After a short time spent in a social way Prof. C. H. N. Nelson, on behalf of the friends assembled, presented Mr. and Mrs. Mikkleson with a handsome silver tea set, silver vegetable dish and several other silver articles for table use, not merely as a memento of their wedding anniversary, but as a recognition of their usefulness as citizens in the community. During his very appropriate remarks he emphasized the fact that many of the ambitions of life were vain and worthless and that the life really worth living was a life of service. To be honored and esteemed by your fellow men is worth infinitely more than vast riches and in the spirit he asked the guests of honor to accept the tokens before them, not for their intrinsic value, but as reminders of the fact that service in life is really worth the while.
The uninvited guests had not forgotten that the material as well as the ornamental things of life were necessary and after a short social time presented a number of good things to satisfy the demands of the inner man and to which all did full justice.
The affair was very thoroughly enjoyed by all present, even Mr. and Mrs. Mikkleson becoming resigned to the fact that they could not, for a time, say what should be done in their own home. They departed with the wish that the host and hosts should be spared to us for many years to come.

Death of 'Chan' Baughman
- - - - -
Edmund C. Baughman, son of Mr. and Mrs. D. S. Baughman, died at the Bipham hospital Tuesday, Nov. 2, of typhoid fever. He was 21 years of age and leaves father and mother living near Williams, five brothers and three sisters. One brother living in Washington and one brother and two married sisters living in Iowa were unable to get here in time to attend the funeral. A simple song service was held at the parents' home Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock and the remains interred in a quiet spot on the home place.
Chan, as he was known and familiarly called by his friends, was a general favorite of all who knew him. A little over a month ago he was attacked with typhoid fever while engaged with the Baughman threshing outfit, of which he was a part owner. He would not give in, thinking his illness but a temporary indisposition, and pluckily stood by his post until forced by weakness to abandon it.
The Advance joins a sorrowing circle of friends in extending heartfelt sympathy to the bereaved family.

Last week Mr. Ben Fulton of the Williams neighborhood and Miss Stella Beach of southern Illinois came to Rev. Dudley's home and signified their wish to be made one. As Mr. Fulton lived in North Dakota, the party had to cross the state line to be married. A high knoll was selected, and when they reached the top, it looked as though made for the occasion, as there was a large flat rock, and beside it was a pile of rocks, representing an altar, where the ceremony was performed. The party christened the hill "Nuptial Knoll." We extend congratulations to the happy couple.

Niece - Osborne
- - - - -
Married at Glendive - Will Make Home in Beach After the Wedding Trip
- - - - -
The Wibaux Pioneer has the following to say of the marriage of Dr. Niece and Miss Osborne, who will make their future residence here:
The parsonage of Rev. E. N. English, at Glendive, was the scene of a very pretty wedding ceremony last Tuesday morning which joined the lives of Dr. O. R. Niece, of this city, and Miss Mary Osborne, of Glendive, Rev. English officiating. Only a few of the bride's relatives were present to witness the marriage, and on the following day this highly esteemed young couple departed for the east on their wedding tour.
The bride was daintily gowned in white silk, with rich trimmings of lace, and was attended by her sister, Miss Martha and Miss Simms, of Dickinson, while Mr. R. T. Gange, of this city, acted as groomsman.
Relative to the characters this happily wedded couple, who have scores of warm friends in this city, we will not venture to outline, lest we fail to do justice in the attempt, but suffice to say that their having won countless friends in this vicinity during their short residence here, renders sufficient evidence of their many splendid traits.
Mr. Niece, who has proven a master in the profession of dentistry, has been a resident of Wibaux for the past year and a half, during which time he has established a very substantial business. On their return from the east Mr. and Mrs. Niece will take up their residence in Beach, where the doctor has also established great confidence as a professional in his line and where he is promised an excellent patronage. Although we regret to see the doctor leave our city, we understand he will continue to handle his patronage here. The Pioneer is pleased to join with the many friends of Mr. and Mrs. Niece in extending our best wishes for happiness and success.
- - - - -
We understand office rooms will be fitted up in the Bartley block on first avenue, while they will go at once to housekeeping in the Fredericks residence which the doctor has purchased.
