Wo clip the following from the
Nebraska State Journal : Miss Pau-j
line Marley , of Linconl , and Urlal
Buchanan , of Chicago , were married
at Memorial Chapel , Chicago , Sunday -
day Dec. 11. Mr. and Mrs. Buchanan
will make their home In Chicago.
Miss Marloy had been a student at
the State University. "
Miss Marley will bo remembered
by her many friends here and Is the
charming and accomplished dangh-
tcr of Mr. and Mrs. P. H. Marley
who wore among our pioneer citi
zens , Mr. Marley being the organ
izer and president of The Mason
City Banging Co. Miss Pauline was
born and spent her early girlhood
days in Mason City but in recent
years she has been attending col
lege in the East , besides having
spent much time travelling abroad
with her parents , visiting many Eur <
pean and Southern countries , and
also most every important point In
America. Mr. Buchanan Is a young
man of sterling character occupying
on Important and responsible poal-
tlon with the C. B. & Q. Ry Co. In
Chicago.
In presenting the above article
clipped from the Mason City Trans
cript we feel that the old settlers
of Custcr county will turn to the
past with us and remember a rather
undeveloped young man coming in
to the county In the capacity of a
bank-employe. This was'something
like 25 years ago , at the time
his friends were rather concerned
| as to whether or not he would bo a
success In the business world. In
I
those days of struggles thev young
man full of hope and courage and
unlimited confidence in the devel
opment of Custer county pushed on

tinction of being one of the most
successful business men in the state

Ing Company and has business in
terests in other localities. P. II.
Marley lias In these years become
well known In a business and social
way with almost every citizen in
Custor county. A few people may
envy these who are successful in
life , the opportunity is open to all.

nephew and niece , against the pro
test of Theodore A. Miller , the fath
er , wTtS brought to a close last Fri
day at Omaha. It will bo remember
ed that Sheriff Bralley , of Douglas
county , came to Broken Bow several
weeks ago and took the children
away from the Coulters on a writ
I of habeas corpus issued from the
court of Judge Estelle , at Omaha.
The children have been in charge
of their uncle and aunt since the
,
death of their mother several years
ago. Mrs. Miller was a sister to
Mrs. Coulter and at her demise
left the little ones In her care.
Miller brought suit to recover his
children but was beaten by the
[ Coulters in county court , Judge Hum
phrey who was on the bench at the
time , rendering a decision against
the father and giving the Coulters
the legal guardianship of the child
ren. The case was then carried to
the district court and Judge Hostel
ler , after going Into details careful-j
ly , sustained the verdict-of the low-
ci court and the children accord
ingly went back to the Coulters.
This was how matters stood up to
the time of Sheriff Brailcy's visit.
t Last Flday aftenoon Judrrgo Es
telle signed a decree giving the
father permanent custody of the
little ones. Judge 11. M. Sullivan ,
of this place who represents the
Coulter's made a motion for a now
trial ; but this was quickly overruled
by Judge Estelle. Judge Sullivan
stated that an appeal to the supreme
I court would bo taken and the cus
tomary forty days was given him in

Supreme court ( or will be ) to de
cide which of the two "his honors , "

Omaha papers , Miller , who now resides -

, sides with his second wife in Omaha
; was greatly pleased with the deci
sion , and staled that his Xmas
would be all the happier for being
able to install his small son and
daughter in their own homo. (

A Few Things Wo Shouldn't DeFer
For the Xt-xt JM15 Days.
Christmas has gene and the medi
cal fraternity rejoice exceedingly
over the In-rush of business result
ing from overindulgence In the
fcatlvo mlnco pie and the holiday
lurk , including , of course , all the
rich and toothsome trimmings that
go with these nohlo articles of food.
It was a glorious Xmas , albeit a
quiet one , and these not suffering
from dyspepsia and whoso consti
tution allowed them to partake of
holiday cheer without having to
break in upon the night rest of
the family physician had great
cause to bo thankful. Hut , we are
now facing a now year and It is up
to the bunch of us to state plainly
and without reserve what wo intend
doing for the period 1911 , even
though wo don't do It. It is so
thoroughly American for ono to inako
a big bluff on good resolutions then
drop ciulotly by the waysldo , wait
for next year and repeat the whole
business. And this has its advan
tages , in some ways , because it
breaks the monotony , adds zest to
the game and , every twelve months
gives your deluded acquaintances
the impression that you arc at last
going to brace up and do something.
There arc , oh , so many things wo
( should do this coming year ; then ,
again , there arc a few things wo
should not do. Hero are a few of
them :
Don't linger too long over the
breakfast table , especially when you
arc breakfasting only on a cup of
hot water and a pinch of salt.
Don't allow your hogs to make
merry on other people's property.
Your neighbor may bo n liberal
minded man , but the chances are
ho draws the line at strange pigs.
Don't envy the follow with a gal
lon of whiskey ; you are better off
than ho is.
, Don't .indulge .In ham sandwiches
and custard pie immediately after
eating a hearty meal.
Don't threaten to shoot your
neighbors' chickens ; you may bo the
proprietor of a chicken factory yourself -
self some day.
Don't tell people how superior
your eastern homo town Is to Brok
en Dow ; they will wonder how you
over had the courage to leave it.
Don't try to make friends with a
bull dog who has just been pre
sented with a Juicy bone.
Don't play marbles In the middle
of the stront. after a two-foot fall of
snow.
Don't swear when you crush your
finger with a hammer ; but repeat
the Declaration of Independence
backwards , take seven swallows of
water , then go to the back yard and
kick the dog until the hair disap
pears If you have children , you
might work them In also.
Don't think you are the only
prune In the plumb cake when your
wife presents you with a bouncing
boy ; there are several other child
ren In Nebraska.
Don't continually tell your wife
she Is the handsomest woman In
town ; she may try to convince
Bomo other man that she really is.
Don't kick at your homo paper
If something in it dosn't exactly
suit ; the country editor has his
troubles , oven though ho Is bask
ing in the light of prosperity.

maintain prices.
Hogs : Receipts 12,000 for 3 dayi
Gc higher both Monday and Tues
day but Gc to Iflc lower today , bulk
7.GG to 7.80 , top 7.8G. With con
tinued good weather and cheap corn
there is an inclination to hold and
feed which will result in heavier
hogs later. The market needs watch
Ing and a bad spell of weather will
undoubtedly bring Increased re
ceipts and we believe lower prices.
Sheep : Receipts 9000 for 3
days with market strong to lOc higher
or for Monday and Tuesday but
closing weak to lOc lower today.
Best lambs G.OO to 6.2G ; a few feed
cr lambs , having had a little grain
