S t a t e Exceu- The marriage of Miss Rena Ward to Mr. Ellis BotbardB of Storm Lake was solemnized at the home of tho bride's parents on Fifth street in this pity Wednesday morning, May 1st, Rev. McDonald of the First M. E. churoh officiating . Only relatives of the contracting parties being present. The young couple both have a host of friends in this city who wish them © very- joy in their new relations. The bride has grown to womanhood and is a member of one of idyiuoath county's 1 ^ pioneer families, boing i . daughter of Mr. and Mrs. O. F. Ward, \ ; - The; groom is a young man cjf ex omplarv habits and is the foreman of tho Pilot- Tribune printing houso at , Storm Lake. He was an omployee of : v ; The Sentinel office in this city a few .'•?)': ; yeare ago. ,. The young couple left Wednesday for Storm Lake where thoy will make their future home. Iowa's county auditors are going straight up into tho air because the state auditor is asking them to furnish oitra assessment statistics for 1000 t h a t will compel them to do a vastarnotmt of additional work. Tho state auditor apparently I wants some information about Iowa's farm lands, and in addition to tho usual questions county auditors aro being asked t o givo the following information : Highest price paid per aero for lands during the fcwelvo, months precodiug this assessment. Lowest price paid per acre, except sheriff's and tax sarlas and tax deeds. Total number of acres sold, except sheriff's and tax sales and tax deeds,, and lands convoyed for purely nominal sums. Total consideration, including mortgages mentioned in conveyances. Two years ago tho above questions wore sent out by the state auditor and they aroused a goneral protest throughout tho state among county officials. Somo jf them furnished them aB promptly as possible without particular objection, but most of theniTobjeotod and roslsted tho call for information. Finally i t bocame necessary for the stato auditor to ask tho opinion of tho attoinoy genoral whether or not tho citato oxocutivo council had the right to compel auditors to make replies to the questions, inasmuch as it was necessary for tho officers to make an examination of tho recorder's book to get tho information. Tho attorney goneral decided that tho council hud authority to compel answers along theso or other lines, even though the county auditors would have to go outside their own offices for some of the information. This settled the matter and the questions wero answered. Council Bluffs, lo., May 2. Special: So intense has the contest over the election of a president of the Iowa Federation of Woman's Clubs become that the nominating committee, on the assembling of the convention this morning, ; reported that it could do nothing until ; somo expression of choice had been made by the delegates in an informal ballot. After the few minutes' discussion, which became almost heated at times. Lit was' determined to take thi3 informal ballot at the opening of the afternoon session. The executive { board met. this' morning and deoided ', to prevent the color question coming up if possible until soine colored club should apply for admission to the federation. The informal ballot as requested by the nominating committee, was taken at the opening of tho afternoon session, but will not bo announced u n t i l tomorrow morning, as the press women in charge of the program refused to permit this question to absorb any more of the time of the meeting. By a strange coincidence Miss O'Donnell, of Council Bluffs, Mrs. Allan Dawson of DesMoines, and Miss Bertha Damaris Konbe of Chicago, who delivered the principal' addresses on newspaper women and their work, each seized the opportunity to tako Edward Bok, editor oE the Ladies Home Journal, to task, much to tho evident amusement and edification of of the women present. , Part of the afternoon program was deferred until tomorrow morning to permit the visiting women to enjoy a motor ride through the city and to Lake Manawa. y a green iii!,' i' which gradually mells iiilo hlue.
