ICE PLANT AND STORAGE
Johnson & McNamer Willing to In
stall Plant Here.
A. W. Johnson and Con McNamer
are gathering information looking to
the establishing an ice plant and cold
storage in this city. They have been
inspecting other plants and are of the
opinion it would pay here. To install
a first-class plant and ample storage
room for all products, it would cost
about $7,000. A convenience of this
kind would be a welcome acquisition
and it is to be hoped they will decide
to drive their stakes here.
The board of trade stands ready to
assist in any way it can and other indi
viduals have signified their willingness
to aid in the matter.
The plant would consist of ice
making machinery, cold storage for
beef, butter and eggs, vegetables and
all other products that become neces
sary to keep cool.
A quiet home wedding occurred Mon
day afternoon at the home of the bride’s
mother, Mrs. E. H . Marsh, in this
city, when Miss Winifred was united
in marriage to Dr. Theodore Whittlesey,
Professor of Chemistry of Northwestern
University. The ceremony, which was
performed by Rev. C. F. Clapp, in the
presence of only the immediate rela
tives, was both beautiful and impressive.
The bride was attired in a beautiful
pearl gray Poplin de Chine m ade over
silk. The rooms were beautifully deco
rated with roses and daliahs, pink and
white predominated in the color
scheme. The couple left immediate
ly amid showers of blessings and rice,
