Clayton & Unknown Brown

The region northwest of Scotland, Bon Homme county, was treated to a genuine sensation when Clayton Brown, a well known young man of the neighborhood, and the 15 year old daughter of a prominent farmer of the community, eloped. They were traced to Tyndall by the irate father, who, by using the long distance telephone, had stopped them there, and he then proceeded to Tyndall and escorted his daughter home. The young man was arrested on a criminal charge, but at his preliminary hearing the authorities were unable to sustain the charge and there was nothing to do but dismiss the case against him and release him from custody.

William & Elizabeth (Carson) Barrett

Rev. Dr. H. P. Carson received an announcement this morning of the marriage of his daughter, Miss Elizabeth, to Mr. William Marshall Barrett, which occurred at Seoul, Korea, on Thursday, Sept. 14, 1905. Although it was announced some time ago that the wedding was to take place at that time the report of the happy event, owing to the great distance, could not sooner be received. The bride has been in the mission field for about a year, and the groom, who was formerly from Kansas, has been in mission work for several years. Both are at present stationed at Taiku, but the wedding occurred during the annual missionary conference held at Seoul, the capital of Korea, and like all weddings of missionaries in the foreign field, was performed in the presence of the U. S. consul located in that country. The letter received by Dr. Carson was written from Seoul and in it Mrs. Barrett states that during their stay there they expected to attend a garden party to be given in honor of Miss Alice Roosevelt, who was soon to visit that city.

The bride has spent the greater part of her life in Scotland, and while her many friends here have great confidence in her ability and worthy determination to spread the gospel teaching among the heathen they have equal confidence in her ability to preside over the home and exemplify to those people the character of a Christian home. In union there is strength, and we trust that by this union both the bride and groom may be strengthened for their life work.

The father and mother of the groom, his three brothers and two sisters and a large number of relatives of both families which constituted a lively happy assembly of young and old. This marriage was nearer the ideal than many that the writer of this sketch has attended.

First, it was a union sought and arranged by the principals themselves. No council, influence or argument had been offered or desired. The couple had solved this most important problem to their entire satisfaction without assistance from any source.

Second, there was not a cloudy countenance. a dissatisfied look, nor a thought of disapproval in all that crowd. Other evidence of good will, was filled up on a table in the parlor, and as the tale was not large enough to hold all the tokens of friendship, many were packed under it and around it - bedding, table linen, glassware, granite ware and tinware, pots, kettles, set of dishes, bedroom sets, and many other useful and ornamental things for household convenience.

The bride, a beautiful brunette was attired in white silk of a most delightful pattern, a long way beyond the ability of this scribe to describe. The groom wore the conventional black, and appeared the congenial, courteous gentleman that he had been from his boyhood to the present.

This couple being their married life with the esteem and best wishes of all who know them.

In regard to the wedding feast, it was simply immense, and the writer of this article partook so heartily that he has been in a comatose condition ever since.

William & Helen (Keating) Griffiths

On Wednesday morning, June twelfth, at the home of Rev. A. S. Peck, near Armour, Miss Hellen Keating of Scotland was married to Mr. William Griffiths, also of Scotland.

At half after eight o'clock the bride and groom entered the parlors and took their place in front of a bank of sweet peas and bridal wreath, where the ceremony was performed by the father of the bride, Rev. H. P. Carson.

Little Mary Willson, who was the only attendant of the bride, carried the ring in an American Beauty rose. The bride also carried American Beauties and the same flower formed the centerpiece of the bride's table at the wedding breakfast, which immediately followed the ceremony.

The only guests present at the wedding were near relatives and a few intimate friends, including Rev. H. P. Carson and Miss Harriot Carson of Scotland, Mr. Guy Williamson and Miss Helen Williamson of Greenwood and Mrs. W. H. Moorhead and Mrs. D. N. Willson of Mediapolis, Iowa.

Mr. and Mrs. Griffiths took the morning train for Sioux City and after a short trip will return to Scotland, where they will make their home.

Mr. W. D. Griffiths and his bride, nee Miss Helen Keating, were generously remembered by their friends as they passed through here on the train yesterday. Their plans to pass through unobserved had been well made but the plans to observe them had been better made. Bills had been printed to be distributed to other passengers on the train, which read, "Married, Griffiths-Keating. They are on this train with the smile that won't come off. Fine them and show them a good time." As the train pulled into the station the coach was soon thronged each person carrying a precious gift to present to the bridal party. Among the tokens were something like fifty pounds of rice, several loaves of bread, bologna sausages, a lunch composed of codfish, onions, cheese and tobacco, a nursing bottle, some old clothes and two bushels of old shoes. The couple withstood the ordeal bravely but the large drops of perspiration that stood out upon their brows showed how fully they appreciated the demonstration of their friends.

A. B. & Unknown (Unknown) Hammer
Arrest of a Bon Homme County Refugee for Too Much Intimacy With Another Man's Wife.

A grand scandal case is creating considerable stir among the people of Tyndall, wherein Capt. A. B. Hammer is charged with adultery. He is now under bonds to appear before Judge Bradford Friday and answer to the charge.

The facts as near as we can learn them are that on or about July 18th Capt. Hammer and a lady arrived in Tyndall and put up at the Carlin hotel. The entry on the hotel register is "A. B. Hammer and lady." Everything went lovely until on or about October 15th, when Mr. and Mrs. Hammer went to Supt. of schools Richmond for certificates to teach. While at Mr. R's house, Mrs. H. picked up a newspaper from Mound Valley, La Bette county, Kansas, in which appeared the name of Luman N. Judd (formerly of Springfield.) "Why!" said the lady, here is Mr. Judd's name." Mr. Richmond looked up inquisitively, and the captain frowned disapprovingly. "Do you know Mr. Judd?" asked the superintendent. The lady replied that she ought to as she came from the town in which he is principal of a school. The matter dropped, (apparently).

On Thursday of last week the captain was arrested and taken before Judge Bradford on a charge of adultery. Frank Richmond was the complaining witness. The defense was ready. Mr. R. was first called, but knew nothing personally but wanted to introduce a letter from a Mr. Hill, the Methodist minister at Mound Valley. Objected to and ruled out for the present. A subpoena was then made out for Mr. Hall. He appeared and created a sensation by identifying the parties. Said he was the husband of Mrs. Hammer at the time she ran away from him and their two children in Kansas in July last, but he had been granted a divorce in November. He also identified the captain us the husband of a lady, and father of nine children, which be deserted at the time specified. The letter held by Mr. Richmond was then introduced. It corroborated the testimony of Mr. Hall. At this juncture the defense asked for a continuance until yesterday, which was granted. Yesterday the court met, and it was expected that Hammer's deserted wife and the minister would be present. They had not arrived at the hour of tho court meeting, so on motion of the prosecution the case was again adjourned to Friday.

The court had no sooner adjourned than the two witnesses arrived by team from Yankton. Mrs. Hammer confirms all that has been said by other witnesses, and acknowledges Hammer as her runaway husband and the father of her nine children and the grandfather of her two grand children. The court records of La Betta county show that no divorce bas been given Hammer, and as he came directly to Dakota and has not been granted a divorce here, it looks very much like a clear case of the husband of one family running away with the wife of another.

Quite a sensation was produced in our quiet village by the arrival one day last week, of the real Mrs. Hammer, the wife of Hammer, arrested in Tyndall for bigamy. Mr. Hammer left Kansas, leaving his own wife with nine children, and taking the wife of another, the mother of two children. The twain came to Tyndall, where the pretended husband was employed to teach the village school and was superintendent of the Presbyterian Sabbath school and his so called wife was organist in that church. The husband of the unfaithful wife bas been in Tyndall to see for himself, and now comes the original Mrs. Hammer, supported by the minister of the church in Kansas where the superintendent of the Sunday school is missing, and where they are also minus an organist for the church. Hammer had a hearing and was bailed out, but is missing when his presence is so greatly desired.
