LeMars Sentinel, August 2, 1897, Page 3, Column 5:
"Just Married Today."
A LeMars friend in Spencer Friday saw Wallace McArthur working like a badger to tear off a big placard from his trunk while his bride of a day stood and looked on and encouraged him to pull hard. The card came off at last and the following inscription showed up in big black letters, "Just married today." Some good friend in LeMars was afraid the bridal couple would not have enough attention shown to them and had securely tacked on the card before the trunk left the LeMars depot. The placard was not noticed when the trunk was rechecked at Spencer early in the morning and the bride and groom could not tell why people smiled so when they passed their baggage until they found the card at Spencer.
