LAUGHLIN, DURL  ~  MINER, STELLA

CHANGED  SUIT  CASES  WHILE  ON  THE  WAY  TO  WED

They say that when a man goes to get married, he does many strange things, and in the excitement is liable to get muddled.  Certainly some men do, as Durl Laughlin could probably swear to today. Last evening Durl and Miss Stella Miner left for Palco, where they expect to be married at the home of Miss Miner's brother, who lives there.  On the way they stopped at Jamestown to visit relatives over night and in some way Durl became excited and picked up the wrong suit case, taking one that belonged to a young lady and leaving his wedding clothes for her.  The young lady is stopping at Colson's and was very much surprised to open the suit case and find wedding finery for both the young lady and the young man.  Not any more so, however, than was Mr. Laughlin and his prospective bride when they arrived at Stockton today and found that they carried the wrong suit case.  The affair, of clothes, not hearts, was fixed up over the telephone and both suit cases will be on their way tonight to their rightful owners.  But Durl Laughlin will have to set up an extra lot of cigars to the young men about town who are laughing in their sleeves today.

Mr. Laughlin will be married to Miss Miner on Thursday of this week and will live here.  He has a position in the McCarty drug store.  Miss Miner is from Jamestown, but has recently been living in western Kansas, where she has a homestead.

Mr. and Mrs. Durl Laughlin arrived home from Palco Saturday night and are now living on East Sixth.  Mr. and Mrs. Laughlin were married at the home of the bride's sister, Mrs. Couture, near Palco on Wednesday.  Mrs. Laughlin was Miss Della Miner.  Both young people are well known here and are highly respected.  Durl Laughlin is a clerk in the Neitzel drug store, and is an industrious and manly young fellow.  He has lived the greater part of his life in Concordia, and is very popular with the young people.  The Blade extends congratulations.
