We have several members of our society who are now working on the Index for the Roots

someone else do this indexing.
To those of you who remember Janice Davis, a charter member, she remains in the
hospital in Colorado after a very serious car accident, which broke her neck. Everyone
sends their best to you, Jan, and hope you will soon be re-cuperating at your sons

The Hooper ball team played their first game at Craig last Thursday and won out by a
score of 13 to 7. The Craig score should have been 4 but the umpire did not seem to relish
seeing his home team outclassed in such a manner and gave them several scores which they
were not entitled to. The team came home in a somewhat crippled condition. Zellers, the
shortstop, had a thumb put out in practice and Eads, the catcher, had a thumb split, while
Denslow, the third baseman, received a hot one on the end of his nose which put him out of
business and gave the doctor a job of setting a few bones. After Denslow was put out of
the game Chas Lyman was substituted and finished out the game, showing some good sticking

McDONALD-GRAHAM NUPTIALS CELEBRATED
The home of Dr R C McDonald was the scene of a quiet wedding ceremony at 1 oclock
this afternoon, uniting Miss Edith McDonald, his niece, and John W Graham. In every way
the nuptials were the embodiment of modest taste. The guests were few, including only a
dozen relatives and close friends of the couple. Rev John Doane pronounced the marriage
service, the pair facing him without attendants. A quiet wedding breakfast followed and
the newly married twain left during the afternoon on a wedding trip to the Black Hills
region. Returning in a week or two, they will take rooms which have been engaged at the
Charles DeLaMatyr residence on West Eleventh street, near F.
No announcement of the engagement had been made but the friends of the couple nevertheless
knew of it and have been expecting to hear of their marriage. The bride is a talented
young lady with many admiring friends. Her services as public librarian from which
position she retired on August 1, were valuable in getting the institution rightly
started. The groom is a young lawyer who is rapidly making his way toward the fore in his
profession and who has already received recognition in politics, being secretary of the
republican county central committee. Their friends wish them joy in full measure.

A Swiss, who has been in this country only about a year working for Jacob Bodiwig, four
miles southwest of Hooper, was overcome by the heat on Thursday and fainted away. Mr
Bodiwig dashed a pail of water over him to bring him to and it threw him into spasms and
he has been having them at intervals ever since. Dr Schettler was called on Saturday and
was there again Monday and he says that it is very doubtful whether the man will recover
or not and that to-day or to-morrow will decide his fate.
