THEIR WEDDING A SURPRISE

Mrs. Eliza CUMMINGS and J.W. HIXSON Were Married At Davenport, Iowa.

The many friends of Mrs. Eliza CUMMINGS were much surprised today to learn that she had been married last week to J.W. HIXSON of Columbia, South Dakota. The wedding took place Wednesday December 5 at Davenport in the parlor of the St. James hotel and was performed by Henry E. DITZEN, a justice of peace. After the wedding the couple visited relatives and friends in Davenport for several days and then came here where they will make their home for the present in the fine house owned by Mrs. CUMMINGS.

Both of the parties are very well known here and are among the old citizens of this community. Mr. HIXSON has spent the last ten or so years in Dakota and is a genial, well liked gentleman.

The marriage is a culmination of xxx romance. In their younger days they lived as neighbors on the farm and kept company some. Later on they were married, raised families and then their helpmates died. The friendship and acquaintances of youth again sprung up and culminated in the wedding. Congratulations are extended.
