Wedding of Dr. R. R. Livingston.
Last cveninn at 7 o'clock at the Episco
pal church occurred the wedding of Dr.
ItoLt. It. LirinHtou and Mii Irene
Loo mis. There were present the family
rcl&tires of the groom and many inti
mate friend of both bride and groom.
Ilev. H. B. lJurgcs, rector of 8t. Luke's
I'arish performed the ceremony. The
bride and groom came to the church in
a carriage from the bride's home in
South Park and entered the church where
all was ready for the ceremony and the
wedding proceeded. Mr. F. 8. White
took the part of giving the bride away.
Affectionate and warm greetings were
extended the couple by those preuent and
the bridal party then entered carriages
which were waiting and were driven to
the future home of Dr. Livingston and
his wife in South Park.
Plattsmouth will Boon stand as one city
with six thousand in the United States,
as regards the manner of lighting. It
has enly been a few years since the first
electric dynamo was erected for the pur
pose of lighting a city, and then it was
the astonishment of the world. The
growth of electric lighting is aomthing
wonderful." At the convention of the
National electric Light Association,
President Duncan said that one year ago
there 4,000 plants in the United States
and now there are nearly 0,000. One
year ago there were 175,000 arc lamps
in use, there are now S?2tt.0t4. One year
ago there were 1,750,000 incandescent
lamps in use; at the present time there
are over 2,500,000 49 per cent increase.
The growth in electric railways is quite
as startling. The country is committed
to an eleclric age. Steam and gas, which
have headed civilization, are being dis
placed, pne more iii;arter of a century
and erery township as well aa city, w ill
be illumined by electric lights.

A Blind Bridal Couple,
Every pleasant evening, in that hour Just
before twilight which wo all love to i
with CCHsequeutiai thoughts and ob
servations, there passes my wiudow a couple
that greatly Interests me. The lady is but v
young girl, it seems, and sho ha3 such ft pret
ty face, 60 white und peaceful, with' some
thing pf sadness In it, something of joy.
She has great eyes that stare strangely at
you, and, at the sound of her companion's
voice, their lids are dropped, and tbo Jong,
graceful eye lashes fall upon her cheeks The
moil reinipds me of one of the old Busona.
Lie is big and strong, and has the curly golden
hair and tho Lig blonde beard of that race of
men. II is companion hangs on his arm, and
yet he seems to depend upon her as much as
the on him, for they cling very closely indeed
together, while he carefully picks their way
out with a light cone.
Both are blind. I inquired about them the
other day. Neitherever 6aw the light of day.
Neither, pan ever know how glorious the sun
light is, how prettily blend the beautiful hues
of the flowers, how grand all nature looks.
Neither ever saw the other 1 and yefr they are
a bridal pair.
They only live in a world of darkness and
in each other. They met long ago, became
devotedly attached to each other end wero
married. And so now every evening, when
tho weather is fine, they go out for a little
stroll, and as they slowly, carefully walk past
my window I think: "It is a sad and yet
pretty sight a blind bridal palrl" Toledq
Kecp an Accunnt of Time.
It would bo on interesting experiment for
women if somo of them would keep an act-aunt
of time just for one week as they
would keep a cash account. Perhaps they
would be astonished to And how easily time,
liko money, is frittered away. Surely there
are just as many hours in the day as there
were when your grandmother, my dear Mrs.
B., brought up her family of seven children,
doing all their sewing and mending, as well
as a considerable portion of tho housework,
yet she found time for an occasional after
noon with a neighbor or a friend, and for
ber correspondence, and didn't talk half as
much about "not having any time" as you
do. Boston Beacon.
Tho Much Abased Motlier-ln-Law.
Novelists and dramatists have thrown
much ridicule upon mothers-in-law, but how
unjustly wo might leave it to sons-in-law to
say, for as a rule there is no one person with
whom a man is on better terms than with his
wife's mother. IIo is to her as another son
from the day when she first gives her willing
consent to her daughter's marriage with him.
Sho Is intrinsically his best friend in pros
perity or in adversity. Sho rejoices in all
good that comes to him, and ho turns to her
for advice and help in moments of difficulty,
and mothers-in-law who attempt to usurp any
kind of authority in the house of a son-in-law
are tho exception far more than the rule.
For Sore Throat.
When sore throats ard prevalent there is a
great deal of talk about the proper remedies
for them. Chlorate of potash, which was
for so long popular, has been decided by ex
perts of the throat to be -not only serious in-
i'ury to tho throat, but almost poison. A
ite remedy is perhaps the best on record,
and it is a very simple one. A teaspoonf ul
of alum and ono tablespoonf ul of ticst French
brandy, put in a half tumbler of water, or a
half pint of water will modify it better.
This gargle should be used several times dur
ing the day, and at night if the irritation
or pain is troublesome. It will bo found an
invaluable throat corrective. St. Louis
Cloth covered furniture which is in con
stant use will not be harmed, and the same
may bo said of cloth lined carriages. Where
such furniture is stored away or kept un
used in a dork room, or where the carriages
are left in a dark coach house through the
summer, ft least two sprayings with ben
zine, say once in June and once about Aug.
1, will be advisable. Another plan which
will act as a protection in such coses is to
sponge the cloth linings and covers, on both
sides where possible, with a dilute solution of
corrosive sublimate in alcohol made just
strong enough not leave a white mark on. a
black feather. Good Housekeeping. -
Silk vs. Kid.
The silk gloves grow prtifcr. and prettier
each season; says tin observer, and the hand,
and wrist look better in them than in kid,
because- they fit as no kid glove can, but still
they ore not so much worn. Th 7c 0J

Woman's Strong Love for White.
Upon entering the world it is her first
robe. q a white gowq she is brought to
baptism. She says her prayers in white and
kneels for confirmation in spotless robes. She
is married in white, and after that she lives
over the white garment days of her youth in
the robes sho mokes for her children, and
when her task is ended she folds her White
hands and lies down to sleep in a shroud as
white as her souL Atlanta Constitution.
Alnm in Uakli! Powders.
Professor J. W. Malletf, of the University
of Virginia, who has been making an ex
haustive series of experiments with alum bak
ing powders and studying their effects upon
the digestive organs, says that alum itself,
when added singly to bread or other food, is
positively injurious to health, and that its
use, even in the small proportion sometimes
used to improve the appearance of bread
made from unsound or inferior fioiir, must
be regarded as highly reprehensible, its in
jurious effect being in no way lessened its
combination with parbonata of soda to form
baking powder, Now York Commercial

wears a make that costs a dollar a pah
more." "But you said these were the very best."
"For wear and quality so they are."
"Then why should Mrs. Lightfoot pay a
dollar extra for hers?"
"Why, she won't have any other shoe but
Fitem & Co.'s, because she can wear a size
smaller of theirs than she can of any others."

the same as a schoolmaster does his A B Cs.
He explained his system to me one day, and
I find he is thoroughly posted. His idea is,
in the first place, to abbreviate the longi

pelling the lateral distension sideways, he of
course makes tho shoo a size shorter than it

"Well, I'll take this pair, and after this

This sounds like fiction, but it is a literal
fact. The conversation took place just as it
is written with tho exception of the names.
Although the measurements of the woman's
foot called for a No. 3 she was fitted pef ectly
with a No. 2. The explanation is 6imply this:
There are manufacturers who, when order
ing sets of lasts, instruct the sellers to deliver
them unstamped. The stamping is done in
the shoe factory, each last being marked a
half size or a size smaller than it measures.
The uppers are numbered to match the lasts

Rabbit Inoculation tn, A.utn.liiVi
The feeling among humane people against
the proposod destruction of the rabbits in
Australia by the adoption of M. Post s
system for exterminate tw- . turm
arnong theuj ral'-moculated with the virus
Cictten cholera was general and strongly
expressed. It will be gratifying to them,
then, to learn that the commission in New
South Wales appointed to examine into the
success of the experiment have issued a pre
liminary report to tho effect that, although
the chicken cholera is fatal to the rabbit in
oculated, the disease does not readily spread
from animal to animaL . As the whole point
of the experiment was that the disease should
so spread, this report would seem to be a vir
tual condemnation of the scheme.
Sympathizing, as every one must do, with
tho colonists in the terrible losses they have
sustained from hordes of rabbits that liter
ally eat up their land, one can hardly regret
that this . special mode of getting rid of tho
rjests should have failed. It is necessary to
put them down if possiblo, and no word could j
bo said against this being done by what may
be. called the illegitimate means of gun and
snare; but to spread cholera among so vast a
number of animals whose only fault is their
exceeding fecundity, is contrary to human
ideas. Tho death may not be a more painful
one than that of poisoning, but it is the first
time, so far as we know, that man has called
in disease as an ally, and few people will be
sorry to hear that tho scheme is a failure.
