Pearson, Selma (6 JAN 1921)
January 6, Herman Damrow was quietly married to Miss Selma Pearson at Cannon Falls, Minn., so when they came back home Sunday, January 9th, a large crowd gathered and gave them a noisy reception with music from cow bells, dish pans , shot guns and other contraptions for which they received some real "long green" something that is very scarce at the present time.
So the question soon arose what to do with the cash.
Some thought it would be handy to pay taxes with, other cigars, others thought it would be fine to buy eats as "drinks" are out of the question.
Ice cream and wieners were decided on to be bought and the ladies to furnish cake and sandwiches and then have a real evening like "years ago".
So they decided to gather large sleigh loads of people and go to the George Braun place, he being an old bachelor and would be glad to enjoy an evening with a social bunch of jolly neighbors as Braun Settlement is proud of boasting to have.
Saturday evening about sixty-five people gathered and did good justice to the large supply of cake and coffee greatly missing the "old keg".
But the music furnished by the Pathe and Accordian, the evening was greatly enjoyed by all. The guests departed in the early hours wishing that some one would soon give another donation.
