Yellowstone Trail Turns to Love Route
Young Folks Follow Surprise Wedding by Honeymoon Auto Trip West
(Aberdeen American)

   Wish Cupid as the guide, the Yellowstone trail became the honeymoon trail Wednesday, when J. Lewis Anderson and his bride, Miss Lavina Cox, left in their automobile for Baker, Mont., immediately after they were married by O.W. Taylor of the Methodist church.  From the parsonage they started upon their honeymoon journey.
   This news of their wedding will be a great surprise to their friends.  If Alfred Anderson, a brother of the groom, had not happened to step into a cigar store he probably would not have known of the event either, until he read the American this morning.
   The clerk asked him what his brother wanted with the boxes of cigars he had been buying and the question aroused suspicions which brought out the secret, but not until after the ceremony at 3 o'clock had been performed and the bride and groom were speeding into the sunset.
   The young people have known each other for several years.  During the last year the bride has been teaching in the Groton schools and the groom, who is a son of W. J. Anderson, who lives five miles south of town, has been expert for L. J. Case.  Two years ago the young man was running a threshing engine at his father's farm when the mail carrier brought him a letter from Baker.  He read it, got down from the engine, went to the house and was next seen riding toward town in his car.  He didn't stop till he reached Baker and when he next appeared he had the young lady.  She had said in her letter that she wanted to come back.  Such devotion could only be rewarded by the happy event of yesterday.
   After a visit at the home of the bride in Baker, the young people will return here to take up their residence upon the Anderson farm which they will operate while the parents move to Aberdeen.
