NEWS NOTES AND COMMENTS
In Blunt, Dakota, at a social gathreing, a Miss Schlosser and Mr. Featherstone stood up and were married "just for fun," by a young man named Burke. It afterward transpired that Burke was a justice of the peace and the marriage was legal. The joke of the affair is that the involuntary bride was engaged to Burke, who thus cast off his own best beloved. A platonic divorce is in order.
