-MARRIED-At the residence of the Brides father, Albert KRAUS, of this Village, Tuesday Sept. 11, Miss Francis KRAUS and Manuel B. WIENBERG, Rabbi Dr. FARBER of Detroit officiating. The spacious rooms of the home were filled with guests, the friends of the bride, who has been one of the favorites of our village. At eight o'clock, the hum of conversation was stilled by the grand strains of Mendleson's, Wedding March, executed by Arthur FOURNIER, and the ribbon bearers, Master Robert ROBLIN and Miss Elisabeth LANGEVIN entered, followed by the sisters of the bride, Misses Gusta and Hattie bearing the flowers and ring, Miss Esther KRAUS as maid of honor, escorted by Samuel WIENBERG as best man, and the brides maids, Miss Margaret FAILING of Grayling and Miss Rae LEVY of Detroit, escorted by the brothers of the bride, Messrs Joseph and Emil KRAUS. The bride and groom were escorted by their parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. KRAUS, and Mr. and Mrs. B. J. WEINBERG, of Saginaw, and given their place beneath a magnificent bell of Ferns, Carnations and Easter Lillies. The room, festooned with smilax, the bride dressed in white Silk Coline and the groom, in the conventional black made a pleasant picture for the expectant throng, as Rabbi Dr. FARBER proceeded with the impressive ring ceremony of the church in which the bride was given away by her father and mother. The hearty congratulations which followed proved the popularity of the bride and the good wishes of our people. The wedding supper was served and enjoyed, for it was elegant in every appointment. The happy pair left on the midnight train for a brief tour and will be "At Home" in Saginaw after October 1st. Among the out of town guest we notice Mr. and Mrs. B. J. WEINBERG of Saginaw; Mr. and Mrs. L. HIMELHOCH and daughter of Beaverton; Mr. and Mrs. J. L. COHN of Romeo; Mr. and Mrs. j. B. WIENBERG of Coleman; Mr. and Mrs. S. B.

-LOVELLS LOCALS.
DEATH AND FIRE AT LOVELL. TWO CHILDREN
INCINERATED ONE BUILDING BURNED.
Lovell, March 14. - About 8 o'clock this morning, the residence of Ben BOUTELL was discovered to be on fire. Mr. BOUTELL had gone to his work and Mrs. BOUTELL was at the store doing some trading. The children were sleeping when she left the house, which, a few minutes later, was a sheet of fire; how it caught, no one can tell. The scene was the most heartrending ever witnessed in Lovell. Two children, one about four years of age, the other about three months old, were burning up in the presence of two or three score people willing to rescue the little ones but could do nothing as the fire had gained so great headway. Nothing could be done until the fire had consumed the house and all it contained, not a vestige of anything was saved. All that Mr. and Mrs. BOUTELL have now is the clothing they had on. They have the sympathy of the people. That is good as far as it goes. We believe a little financial sympathy would be thankfully received. How much will you sympathize? (19 Mar 1908)

-We are informed that $92 was raised for the BOUTELL family, who were burned out. (26 Mar 1908)

-LOVELLS LOCALS.
Ben BOUTELL had the stork stop at his house with a baby boy Saturday morning. (28 Jan 1909)
