Items of Interest Reproduced from the Files of the Enquirer After the Lapse of a Generation. Last Thursday evening at 8 oclock was solemnized the wedding of Miss Ellen R. Roeder, of Bremen, to Mr. August H. Steffen, of Cleveland, Ohio, at St. Paul's Lutheran church. The church had been tastefully decorated for the occasion, and a large number of relatives and friends of the young people were present. Promptly at the hour the organist, Mr. Herman Bar-tels, began the wedding march from Lohengrin, and the bridal pary entered in the following order: The bridesmaids, Miss Dora Knoepfle and Clara Lauppe; the groomsmen, Messrs. William Lauppe and Oliver Snyder; the little flower girls, Alma and Grace Sauer, nieces of the bride; the maid of honor, Miss Mary Lauppe, with the bride. At the altar they were met by the groom and his best man, Mr. William Steffen. Then a special choir led by Mr. Bar-tels sang the beautiful song, "Lord, Give Thy Blessing." The short but impressive marriage ceremony was performed by Rev. A. Wilder, after which another song was rendered by the choir. The bridal party left the church to the strains of Mendelsohn's wedding march and proceeded to the home of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs. John B. Roeder, where congratulations were offered and a sumptuous luncheon was served to the guests. Ei-nest Schilt and George Ewald left on Monday for a trip to California. They expect to be gone about three weeks. Luther T. Piatt, the new principal of the high school, moved to town this week. He will occupy Dr. C. C. Bondurant's house. Fahys Yockey is a new assistant bookkeeper at the Union State Bank. We must be at least a little "warmer" than some of our neighbors. Frost was reported in Elkhart county last week, and it is said that corn and potato vines near Syracuse were killed by it. - A crowd of young people from town were entertained at the country home of Mr. and Mrs. Will Miller Saturday evening. The occasion was in honor of Alfred Brechtel's birthday anniversary. An elaborate lunch was served. Walmer Bros, and Elmer Gall of this place, have bought the old Seaman mill property, at Wakarusa, and will soon move to that place and conduct a machine shop and will manufacture iron tanks and other specialties. They are first-class mechanics, and we bespeak for them a profitable business, but, they are the kind of citizens we disike to have leave town. Hoboes have been altogether too plentiful here the past week. Some tone should show them around the school yard. It might have some effect. H. H. Miller and Edward Kiefer were severely injured yesterday afternoon, while at work on Mr. Miller's new house. They were at work on a scaffold about twenty feet from alle 1UMIS 11 11 H ii il . ailing" POME. "How is the milk maid?" ' He asked with a bow. "It isn't made, sir, It comes from a cow." f YES, OR NO. Chief Justice Taft said at a dinner party in Washintgon: "When a cross-examining lawyer gets impudent and offensive I love to see him taken down. Once, in a libel case, a Methodist preacher took a lawyer down beautifully. "Answer me yes or no!" the lawyer yelled. " 'But,' said the preacher, mildly, 'you can't answer every question with a direct yes or no.' "You can't!' roared the lawyer. He whacked the bar of witness stand right under the preacher's nose. 'You can, if you're not an idiot.' " 'Then, said the preacher, 'answer me yes or no to this What time is it?' "There was a titter in the court room. The lawyer looked foolish. " 'Or to this,' went on the preacher 'When did you get out of jail?' " 'Or to this,' he added, as soon as the laughter of the audience died down 'Have you stopped beating your wife?' ". WORTH LOOKING INTO. i One of our pi-eacher friends wants to know if it would be possible to work up a "hidden check page.' in the town where he now lives, and hide the check in one of the churches on Sunday evening. !P fl WILLING TO DIVVY UP. A lady friend who reads this column remarked to us the other day that we have had a lot to say about women's dress and manners, and suggested that the men are entitled to some attention these days. She's right. For instance : There's the man who wears a decol-ette .shirt with an unshaved neck if you want to call it neck. And the sport who rolls his trousers up about eight inches when there's no sign of rain. And the guy in a "Pam" Beach suit that shows Where his B. V. D.'s leave off and his socks begin. And the bird who shuns old fashioned suspenders but keeps hitching up his pants in all sorts of places and in all kinds of company. And the fellow who needs reminding that white socks need changing more frequently than black ones. And the man who wears a camel's hair brush on his upper lip and imag ines that it's a mustache. You're right, sister, woman has no monopoly. 3fc Every time we get the notion that the World is growing better we hear somebody pronounce it "athaletics." THE DOG AND THE FLEA Did you ever see an old hound that has fleas, and have you noticed how much those fleas worry him while he is lying around the yard with nothing to do? You will see him scratch on one side, bite on another side, roll over, twist around, whine and make more fuss than a setting hen. It would seem that the fleas were worrying the old hound half to death. Isn't it strange, however, when the hunter comes out of the door and blows his horn that the old dog jumps up, forgets ' his fleas and away he goes after the game, and, as long as he is on the hunt and busy, he never thinks anything more about the fleas, The old dog and the fleas remind one of some salesmen and agents and competitors. Soras salesmen and agents can be bothered more by little trivial acts of competitors and waste more time writing letters and telephoning than the old dog wastes in worrying about his fleas. The agents and salesmen however, who are up and about, on the hunt for business , talking quality, and demonstrating quality, have very little to say and less time to think about what their competitors are doing. Like the dog, when they have their minds centered on their business, the little, trivial things do not bother. POME. (Dedicated to the Grocer) Little bits o' parcels From the grocery Keeps the average feller In a state of poverty. Sft 9fi Cfr READY TO CHANGE. Clerk Glen Underwood was talking not long ago to a clerk in another county, and was told about a young Swede who stepped up to the counter one day and asked for a license. "What kind of a license?" asked the clerk. "A hunting license?" "No," was the answer. "Aye tank aye bane hunting long enough. Aye want marriage license." 9 fifr 9fi A WET TIME IN THE OLD TOWN. (Tioga, Ga., Herald) Miss Ethel Creaksby was hostess Tuesday evening at a shower in compliment to iMiss Mildred J. Flood, who is to marry Wayne G. Watterson of Paschalville next Thursday evening at the Baptist church. HIS COMEBACK. They had one of their usual tiffs because hubby was late home for supper. "You're always late," she said indignantly, "you were even late at the church the day we were married." "Yes," he answered bitterly, "but not late enough." !( JJ Sf The most uncertain thing I know (for it is always on the go) is nilady's line of waist, which never lingers in one place, but up and down forever slips from the shoulder to the hips; I'm sure us men would think it fine if we could fix this changing line, for with so many false alarms, we don't know where to put our arms. Headline "King George Subdues Bucking Horse" There is nothing more inspiring than to see a father set a good example for his son. & & We are wiling to bet a week's receipts that the girl who can dance 0 hours would be a physical wreck if she had to spend a half hour over the wash-tub. t fl RELIGIOUS CANDOR. A certain church recently issued an advertisement, thus: "Services at 10.30 a. m. Subject "The Three Great Failures" Choir, Sermon, Pipe Organ Offertory. All Welcome." s& s& PUZZLE. Fellow stopped in at the Ponader store the other day and said to Preacher Foltz: "Say, how do you sell your lim-burger cheese?" "Derned if I can tell you," says Preacher, just like that. ffr A TOAST TO LAUGHTER. Here's to laughter, the sunshine of the soul, the happiness of the heart, the leaven of youth, the echo of in nocence, the treasure of the humble, the Wealth of the poor, the bead in the cup of pleasure! Without it humor Would be dumb, wit would wither, dimples would disappear and smiles would shrivel. It dispels dejection, banishes the blues and mangles mel ancholy, for it is the foe of woe, the destroyer of depression, the birth cry of mirth and the swan song of sad ness. Jl 3fc BY GOLLY An old resident of Alaska had never j seen a motor car. One day he was j astonished to see one go by, but was dumbfounded when it was followed by a motorcycle. "Gee, whiz!" he said "who'd s'posed that thing had a colt!" You may be intrigued to learn that A. Gosling, of Indianapolis, pro cured a hunting license in Warsaw this week. S And Now In Closing Consider the case of the Howard county woman who has applied for a divorce from her husband for the reason that he refuses to take a bath She lived with him long enough to help him accumulate $12,000 worth of property, and now asks for ,$5,000 alimony. We' claim she earned it. m win ni i mm m m Summer Dresses that sold at 1 4.75, 1 9.75 and 24,75 Special for this show . . . , Also Ginghams and Voiles at Special Prices, and many other bargains throughout the store. Rebuilding of Europe Put in Yankee Hands t Paris. The solution of the reparations problem and the rebuilding of Europe has been placed almost- entirely In the hands of Americans through the signing of the Dawes pact in London. This statement was made here by one of the French delegates to the London conference during an interview with representatives of the press. Secretary of States Hughes Praises the Dawes Parley New York. Declaring himself to be "very hopeful and optimistic" regarding the outcome of the London conference on the Dawes reparations plan, Secretary of States Charles E. Hughes returned to the United States Dn the United States liner President Harding and entrained Immediately ?or Washington. DAYS OF DIZZINESS Come to Hundreds of People. There are days of dizziness; Spells of headache, languor, backache; Sometimes rheumatic pains; Often urinary disorders. Doan's Pills are especially for kidney ills. Endorsed in Bremen by grateful friends and neighbors. Ask Your Neighbor! Mrs. J. L. Becker, Montgomery St., Bremen, says: "Several yeas ago my kidneys caused me to suffer considerably. I had dull, miserable backaches that sapped my strength and energy. I couldn't half do my work during the day or rest well when night came. Headaches and dizziness were frequent, and my kidneys didn't act as they should. The use of Doan's Pills, however, soon relieved the backaches and put my kidneys in a good, healthy condition." Price 60c, at all dealers. Don't simply ask for a kidney remedy get Doan's ' Pills the same that Mrs. Becker had. Foster Milburn Co., Mfrs., Buffalo. N.
