'City Election
The annual city election will be'held
next Tuesday. With but one excep
tion there is but one candidate for each
office. 4 For the sake of promoting
harmony, the "drys," as they are call
ed, did not nominate a ticket this year;
so that there will be no opposition to
the election of the ticket named by the
"wets," except the candidate-for city
treasurer. A good many people do
not think it altogether fair to permit a
city election to be entirely one-sided,
hence friends of Glen G. Hampton,
"wets" as well as "drys," have request
ed him to permit the use of his name
as a candidate for city treasurer, which
he has consented to do.
Both candidates for this are, in our
opinion, qualified to discharge the
duties of the office; the city treasurer
has no voice in the question of licensing
saloons, and similar matters; hence the
contest will turn on the popularity of
the two candidates and the question of
a division of offices as above suggested.

A Sunset Marriage
More than fifty years ago Mra. Fanny
G. Parker went to Iowa a happy bride,
where she and Mr. Parker lived for
thirty years. Now again after these
years she returns to old Iowa, a bride,
not so young, but happy still, as the
wife of Thomas J. Strupper. Each hav
ing been widowed for nearly fifteen
years thought it meet that two so emi
nently suited to each other should
spend their declining years together.
Mr. and Mrs. Strupper will be at
home to their many friends after May
10th, at Salix, Iowa, a suburb of Sioux
City, where Mr- Strupper holds a good
position with the railroad company.
Her daughter, Mrs, Watson, had
thought to have her mother with her
always, but a kind loving husband and
a home all her own proved too strong
an attraction,.
The Herald joius with many other
friends in wishing that the remaining
years of their lives may be filled with
unalloyed happiness
