Mr. and Mrs. B. F. MILLER, of Sterling, N. D., are visiting their
daughter, Mrs. Wm. PACE. They came up last Sunday and intned to remain a
couple weeks this time. He says he is greatly pleased with this country
and as his son has taken up a claim in that locality they will shortly make
this county their home and engage in stock raising.
Charley MITCHELL and Doc. HARRIS came in from Gerard Lake Sunday, having
experienced the blizzard to their entire satisfaction. They left the lake
early Friday morning intending to make Towner by 2:30 or 3 o'clock but
encountered the storm about noon and by the best of luck after traveling
for several hours they ran across a deserted house where they spent the
night. As they had left home without taking any food with them they spent
a hungry night of it also. It was fortunate for them that the weather was
not of the order of the 40 below blizzard or they might not have escaped so
James LYMBURNER and bride arrived Tuesday. They immediately left the
city for his home on the ranch where Mr. L. has prepared a comfortable
residence for himself and wife. Mr. LYMBURNER ranks in the lead of the
successful young men who are engaged in the stock business in this county,
and well and favorably known to all within its borders. The bride, Miss
Belle MCDOUGALL, of Brussels, Ontario, was a former resident of this county
and is held in high esteem by all who were acquainted with her. The
marriage ceremony was performed at the home of the bride March 14. The
INDEPENDENT joins their many friends in wishing them a long and happy
voyage on the sea of married life.
