Harvard--Miss Bessie Queener and Frank H. Peterson, both popular young people of Harvard, were united in marriage in Moscow Monday, April 22nd. The Rev. J. Quincy Biggs performing the ceremony. The bride is a daughter of Mrs. S.E. Queener of Harvard and has spent her entire life in Latah county. The groom is a native son of the upper Palouse, a son of O.B. Peterson, formerly a resident of this community, but now a resident of Colville, Wash. Mr. and Mrs. Peterson have the best wishes of their many friends here on their journey through life. Frank left Sunday with the Latah county contingent for Camp Lewis. Mrs. Peterson returned the same day to Harvard.


Lieutenant Donald Hubert Yates, of Moscow, has returned for a short visit with his parents, bringing home a bride. The wedding occurred in Tacoma a few days ago. Lieutenant Yates graduated from the Presidio and was commissioned second lieutenant. He was promoted to a first lieutenancy at Camp Lewis. Of the wedding a Tacoma newspaper says:

"A quiet, but very pretty ceremony yesterday afternoon united in marriage Miss Marion J. Valentine, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. R.S. Valentine, and Lieut. Donald Hubert Yates, of Camp Lewis. The wedding took place at 3 p.m. at the home of the bride, 813 North 5th street, Rev. Hermon P. Williams officiating.

"The bride, who is one of Tacoma's most charming girls, looked unusually lovely in a pale gray Georgette crepe gown with a pink picture hat and pink bride's roses. Lieut. Elgin Norris of Camp Lewis acted as best man, and Miss Dorothy DuBuisson was bridesmaid.

"The wedding supper took place at the Hotel Butler, Seattle, at 7 o'clock. The bridal couple left late in the evening for their honeymoon, which will be spent east of the mountains, where they will visit at the home of the groom, in Moscow, Idaho. Lieut. Yates is the son of Mr. and Mrs. J.W. Yates of Moscow, and received his commission as lieutenant at the first officer's training camp at the Presidio.

"The guests at the wedding were Miss Hazel Chambers, Mrs. George Kirchner, Miss Dorothy DuBuisson, Lieut. McMillin and Lieu. Norris."


Whereas, the Great Artisan of the universe in His infinite wisdom has called from our midst our worthy and esteemed, sister, Lillian Warner Doyle.

Resolved, That is is fitting and highly proper that the members of Columbia Assembly, No. 104, of Moscow, Ida., unite in the expression of our profound sorrow and regret in the loss we have sustained in the death of Sister Doyle. Always a consistent and faithful member of our order and an upright citizen before the world. Her Christian spirit and unselfish thoughtfulness for the happiness of others will be sadly missed from among us.

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be sent to the family of our departed sister with the assurance of our heartfelt sympathy in this hour of bereavement, and the sincere condolence of this assembly.

Resolved, That as a special mark of our high regard for the deceased, and out of reverence for her memory, our charter be draped for thirty days.

Resolved, That a copy of these resolutions be spread on the minutes of our assembly and one published in the local paper.
