who had journeyed to Nebraska for
the express purpose of witnessing tho
ceremony that ended the bachelor life
of their brother. Following the cere
mony a wedding supper for four was
served at a local cafe and later tho
party returned to Brady In the Spring
er car In which the trip to this city
had been made.
Mr. Springer, by reason of having
filled tho position of commissioner for
sovoral terms, is one of the most wide
ly known men of tho county and his
friends in all sections will bo ready
to heartily congratulate him when
they meet him. Mrs. Pulllam Is a

oasis after his years of travel over the
sands of bachelordom.
Best wishes are extended.
