News reached here last week announcing the wedding of Nels W. Hawkinson of Rock Lake to Miss Harriet Genevieve Pratt of Litchfield, Minn., on Wednesday, Aug. 17. This will not be much of a surprise to some of Nels' many friends here as it has been the opinion of a few that he had matrimonial bees in his bonnet. They announce that they will be at home at Rock Lake, N. D., after the first of October. Mr. Hawkinson's boyhood days were spent at Litchfield, which is one of the prettiest little cities in Minnesota. The Pratts are one of the oldest and most prominent families in that city. Since locating in North Dakota and entering the farm implement business on a large scale, Mr. Hawkinson has made a conspicuous success. Besides being a good business man, Mr. Hawkinson is gifted with the faculty of winning devoted friends - and equally devoted enemies. This is always a good index of success. We have always found Nels W. a square fellow and can wish him nothing but happiness and good fortune.
