DR. S. B. LA DUE A BENEDICT
Ceremony Took Place in Hotel LaSalle at High Noon Tuesday - Goes to Rockford Cantonment
Dr. S. B. La Due, even though he is subject to arny duty, took time by the forelock Tuesday and was married at the Hotel LaSalle, Chicago, to Miss Mildred Solliday of Hooppole. Shortly after leaving for Chicago the doctor was summoned at Prophetstown by the government to report for army duty at the Rockford cantonment.
Mrs. La Due is very well known in Prophetstown where she has made her home much of the time for the past year. She has many friends among the young people who will be pleased to learn that she is to become a citizen of the town. Her friends are numbered by her acquaintances in the town and vicinity.
Dr. La Due has just recently graduated from the Chicago Dental College and only a short time since had an office fitted up for the practice of dental surgery in this place. He graduated with high honors and consequently is well equipped for the practice of his chosen profession.
In view of the fact that he has been called by the government for service, there is no telling when he will return to Prophetstown and it will be necessary for him to get supply if they are to be had, as there ia a great dearth of men in the calling.
The doctor has made many warm friends in town since he came here and they are loath to see him leave here for army duty.
The couple have the best wishes of all for a happy voyage down the stream of time and may the sailing be only just enough to give spice to life and make it all the
