1910 Mar 10 – Find Baby in Bundle
At Mr. Mark Cardiff’s home about 11 o’clock Tuesday night there came two sharp rings at the front door bell. Mr. Cardiff happened to be in the backyard at the time and Dr. Beauchamp who was in the house, went to the door and discovered a bundle on the veranda. He brought it in and when Mr. Cardiff came in they at once examined the bundle and to their surprise found it contained a well-developed baby boy about two weeks old. The baby was wrapped in an old shawl with note attached. “Please look after baby – mother in trouble.” Chief Hillman was notified, but except the shawl and note there is no clue to its identity. Mr. Cardiff has had several offers from persons wishing to adopt the little stranger but those a home seem loth to part with it.
1910 Mar 10 – Former Dauphinite Suicides
Harry Smith, residing 15 miles south of Tisdale, met a tragic death Thursdays. He was found by a neighbour suspended to a beam in his stable and quite dead. No reason can be assigned for the act. His financial standing was good and nothing strange was noted in his demeanour.
Smith left Dauphin last spring for Tisdale to take up homestead duties. He sold his farm here, which was situated on the Vermillion River, three miles south of town.
He leaves a young widow and child and our months old.
1910 Mar 10 – Ethelbert
A very pretty wedding took place in the Methodist Church on Wednesday evening, March 2nd, before a crowded church of interested spectators, guests and relations. The bride was Miss Annie Eastman, youngest daughter of Allan Eastman of Garland. The bridegroom was Frank A. Hoare of Pine River. The ceremony was performed by the Rev. Mr. Greig of Minitonas. Kenneth Eastman acted as best man, and was supported by Miss Pearl Mills as bridesmaid. The bridge was attired in pale blue silk, trimmed with white lace, and wore a wreath of orange blossoms and a net veil. The bridesmaid was dressed in pale pink silk and white lace.
After the marriage the guests, numbering 150, adjourned to the pool-room where a sumptuous repast had been prepared by Mrs. Neil Mills, to which ample justice was done. The room was then cleared for dancing, the music being provided by the McMurray Orchestra of Dauphin. Dancing continued to the wee sma’ hours of the morning, with just an interval at midnight for the refreshments. The presents were both numerous and valuable.
There was a nice gathering of young people at the manse on Thursday evening, the 3rd inst. to give a farewell to Miss M. McCauley, who is leaving the mission for a time owning to ill health. There were about fifty persons present, including a few families, amongst whom were Mr. and Mrs. Leander Hill, the sec.-treas., Mr. and Mrs. Skaife, postmaster, and Mr. A. McPhedrian, station agent. During the evening a testimonial of appreciation was read by Gordon Hill to Miss McAulay, and a present is to be forthcoming shortly as a token of the esteem in which Miss McCauley is held by the “Conquerors Club” of young people. After joining hands to the tune of Auld Lang Syne, the meeting broke up, some singing “She’s a jolly young fellow.”
Ethelbert is busy these days shipping cordwood, lumber and cattle. Donald McLean, brother of John McLean, is loading two cars of lumber, stock, etc. for his farm out west.
