One of the interesting social events of the week was the wedding on Monday [June 12] of Miss Nellie Keane, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.J. Keane, of Moscow, and Roscoe A. Balch, son of Mr. and Mrs. L.N. Balch of Potlatch. The wedding ceremony was performed at the home of the bride's parents in Moscow by Father H.M. Morris, the Catholic priest at Potlatch at 1:30 Monday afternoon. Only immediate relatives were present and after a wedding dinner and the felicitations of relatives and friends Mr. and Mrs. Balch left on a brief honeymoon after which they will make their home in Potlatch where a beautiful home awaits them. The bride is a native of Latah county and was one of the most popular girls of her set. She attended the university, graduated from the Lewiston State Normal and for four years was a popular teacher in the Potlatch schools. Mr. Balch is the land agent for the Potlatch Lumber company, a position he won by faithful and intelligent services.

Mrs. Frank Wilson, wife of a well known citizen of Moscow, was adjudged insane by Probate Judge Morgareidge this week and was committed to the mental hospital at Orofino.

Dr. D.F. Rae and S.L. Willis, a Moscow druggist, were arraigned before Probate Judge Morgareidge on Monday charged with maintaining a common nuisance. Mr. Willis was discharged and the case against him dismissed for lack of evidence. Dr. Rae was held to answer to the district court. This action followed a search of Dr. Rae's premises made some weeks ago by Deputy Sheriff Hall, Mayor Gibson and Prosecuting Attorney Moore. It is alleged in the complaint that nine empty whisky bottles and one partly full were found in Dr. Rae's office, and that five other empty whisky bottles were found in his woodshed adjoining.

The young couple plan to have their home open to their friends in Moscow early in July.
