In other news: With many prominent canal officials onboard, the small steamer Louise passed entirely across the isthmus of Panama through the Panama Canal, the first boat ever to make the journey. (Note: The Panama Canal was the waterway, built at great cost and loss of life, which connected the Atlantic ocean, by way of the Caribbean Sea, to the Pacific ocean. It was built by U.S. military engineers between 1904 and 1914 and the land flanking the canal was turned over to Panama in 1979. In 2000, operation of the canal was passed over to the Republic of Panama.)
Exciting events at the Empire Theatre
Prof. de-Leon will present Dorva, the world famous coloratura soprano in a brilliant program of operatic gems at the Empire Theatre on South St., Glens Falls, both matinee and evening on Thursday, Nov. 27, 1913. The most birdlike voice ever heard - singing F above high C in a manner beyond description.
Another great show at the Empire will be on Nov. 28 and 29 with Pasquall’s “Last Days of Pompeii.” It is a story of absorbing interest which can be easily followed in the splendid pictures to be shown.
Pretty wedding conducted
Miss Florence E. Baker, daughter of Deputy Sheriff Charles Baker, of Baker Mills, was married to Obed Tarin the morning of Nov. 26, 1913 by the Rev.

She was attended by her cousin, Miss Katherine B. Maloy. Edgar Baker, brother of the bride, acted as best man.
Following the ceremony a wedding luncheon was served at the home of the bride. The couple will reside in North Creek.
