A DOUBLE WEDDING.
Akron friends, and especially those living west of here, are interested to
learn of a double wedding that took place a few days ago at Philip, S.D., a
new town west of Pierre. The principals in the happy event were Ed. Larson
and Miss Esther Peterson, and Andrew Abrahamson and Miss Lissa Larson. Mr.
Larson was formerly engaged with his father, John Larson, now of Sioux City,
in the general merchandise business at Spink, S.D.; Miss Peterson is a
daughter of Mrs. John Larson, of Sioux City, and although no family
relationship exists, the unusual circumstance is presented of a step-brother
and step-sister wedding. She is a granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs. John
Sellberg. Mr. Abrahamson’s parents lived near Spink and his bride is also a
daughter of John Larson, of Sioux City. The four young people each took a
claim near Philip a few months ago and each couple now jointly own 320 acres
of good land, all adjoining. Mr. Larson has been conducting a general store
at Philip since locating there. These young people have known one another
since early childhood. They have the heartiest congratulations and best
wishes of all who know them.
GERMAN IMMIGRANTS ASTRAY.
Four German immigrants—three men and a woman—landed in Akron Sunday morning,
direct from New York harbor, only to find that they had traveled 800 miles
for nothing and that they would be compelled to “back track” another 800
miles to reach their proper destination, Akron, Ohio. The cause of their
going “astray” was the error of the railway agent in the east, who made out
their ticket to Iowa instead of Ohio. Neither of the four could understand
English and it was necessary for some of their local countrymen to assist in
the dilemma. A free return passage to Chicago was secured for them by Agent
Searls and the “strangers in a strange land” departed Monday afternoon.
