Leeds Bride Exchanges Husband's
$10 for a Modest $3.

Mary Jane Davis, of Leeds, Mo., who was married in Independence yesterday to B. F. Wellford, of Columbus, O., does not believe in the old adage that "the wife should attend to the religion for the family and the husband handle the money."

"I have nothing smaller than a ten spot," the bridegroom said to Deputy Recorder Meinich, after the ceremony was performed.

Meinich found he had no change and started to go out and change the bill, when the bride spoke up:

"I have a little change," and handed Meinich the $3.

Then she took the bridegroom's $10 from Meinich and put it into her own pocketbook.
