In Pittsburg George Alfred Dimling married. Among other things, Mr. Dimling is a millionaire's son. His specialty has been playing jokes on newly married couples. So it was natural that something should happen when George Alfred was wedded. As a starter, posters announcing a grand circus parade were dis ;ributed over the city.
