Death of 31 rs. Troop.
Mrs. Elizabeth Troop, residing four

morning at 8 o'clock. She had pre
viously suffered from heart trouble
and wi s sitting at the breakfast table
with her family when the dread mes

her to her future home. Her husband,
VVm Troop, preceded her nineteen

The Log Turned.
Cupt. Milo Brigga has been pro
moted. He is now a full-fledged com
modore with the rank of rear admiral.
Sunday morning he took his family
out for a walk and they sauntered
down to the river. A log had drifted
in and one end caught on the bank.
while the other floated in the water.
Milo started to walk out over the
boiling current on the log, when his
wife begged him not to do so, as the
log would turn. With that "superior
wisdom", for which roan is noted,
Milo assured her there was no danger,
but he had no more than uttered the
words when the log did turn and Com
modore Briggs found himself striking
out wildly in the muddy current of
the river. He finally caught hold of
the log ivad pulled himself up, but he
made a comic picture with bedraggled
clothes, as he quietly walked out on
dry land and made a bee-line for
home, his family trailing along be'
hind with no words that could do the
subject justice. At every step hia
shoes squished, as the water rolled out
at the tops, and his disgusted coun
tenance would have .stopped a runa

The Happy Union of Twoof Cau County's
Oldest Families in the Marriage of
Miss Elkenbary to Charles
. The wedding of Miss Manota Eiken
bary, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Henry Eikenbary, early settlers of
this county, to Charles A. Vallery of
this city, took place last evening at 8
o'clock at St. Luke's Episcopal church
In thin city according to the beautiful
ritual of that church.
Mr. David Hawksworth, jr., was
bept man, and the ushers were
Messrs. Henry Tartsch, Frank Ricbey.
Everton Eaton and Stuart Livingston.
The church was tastefully decorated
with flowers and palms Easter lilies
predominating in recognition of an
Easter wedding. The church was
filled to its utmost capacity with as se
lect an audience as the city could have
gotten together. Rev. H. B. Burgess,
in his impressive manner, said the
fateful words which made them man
and wife. Mr. Eikenbary took part
in the ceremony by giving his daugh
ter away. All in all it was one of the
prettiest weddings ever celebrated in
in the city.
The bride wore a neat traveling
costume and carried a bouquet of
bride roses. She was one of Platts
mouth's handsomest young ladies and
certainly lcoked at her best last eveL
ing. The groom, a son of Jacob Val
lery, Jr., was born in this county,
where he is recognized us a young
man of sterling worth, fuily deserving
the charming wife that he has secured.
After the ceremony the wedding
Darty repaired to the Burlington de
pot where at 8:25 the newly wedded
pair boarded the train for St. Louis,
where they will visit for a few days
and then return to their future
home on the Vallery farm near this

hearty congratulations through the
medium of The News, and trust that

with promise may never beclouded.
Their First Grief.
Just after 1 o'clock today Judge
Spurlock performed the ceremony
which united in marriage a gay
young man named Ambrose n. uai-.
lagher and Miss Carrie B. Troutmau
After the ceremony they sauntered
down to the depot to get aboard the
first train for Omaha. The happy
groom forgot all about tickets till the
train was in, and after putting: his
wife on the train he rushed into the
office for his tickets. He got them,
and, as the train was moving out, he
caught the rear car which is a mail
coach with no door to connect with
the platform. The result was, as the
train does not stop till Omaha is
reached, the groom with two tickets
will have to ride on the platform,
while the bride in the coach can not
help but think he is le't in Platts
mouth. The crowd at the depot was quick
to grasp the situation, and shouted
with laughter at the groom's expense,
as the train disappeared with his
anxious face silhouetted up against
the rear end of the car. where he
will take the longest twenty-two milo
ride he ever took in his life.
Boy Fatally Injured.
Elm WOOD, Nebr., April 22 The

met with a sever accident that will no
doubt cost him his life. He had driven
up to an old granary in alumber wagoc.

it in the wagon and drove off. The
wagon had no end-gate in it, and fear

him and taking it by the barrel began
poking the lock back with the stock
when the gun exploded, the bullet en
tering his left side, striking a rib and
glancing upwards, becoming imbedded
in his shoulder. Dr. Madding of Mur
dock was summoned and probed for
the ball, but was unable to find it. At
last reports he was in a very critical
condition and bleeding internally. Lit
tle hopes of .his recovery are enter
tained, as the doctor thinks it prob

Amelia Barr Asks Christian America to
Send Help Quickly.
When Christ saw the multitude
weary and hungry, he called the little
lad with the barley loaves, and taking
and blessing them, he gave to the
waiting thousands; and there was
enough and to spare.' "Which of us,
reading that gracious story, does not
envy the child so honored ? Well,
then, our opportunity for a similar
experience is not coming, it is pres
ent with us. From the splendor and
havoo of the plague and famine
stricken cities of the east comes the
old, old cry of suffering humanity, i
"Help! Help! or we will perish!"
The Terrible Outlook.
A great army is perishing; such an
army as the world niver saw. Many
millions of men, women and children,
suffering;, in greater or lesser degrees,
the pangs of hunger; and frequently
of both hunger and thirst. Think of
cities like New York ready to die for
lack of food. ,
No natural or local relief for this
terrible calamity can be hoped for un
til next September, and until that
date, at least, the Christian world
must care for these; eighty millions.
Will America shirks her share of this
divine work? She-will not. The
Christian Herrld vill become the
surety for her help. Even if a large
sacrifice was demanded she would
rise to the occasion and make it; but
great is the.multitude of helpers, and
so everyone need but to give a little,
according as God has prospered him.
One dollar will keep a soul alive until
next June. If a man or woman can
6pare a dollar, and iefrains from giv
ing it, how will they clear their skirts
from blood-guiltin?4s ? Ifthey fulfill
all other duties am neglect this one,
what excuse willth.y make when the
Saviour complains: I was an hungered,
and you gave me no bread; for, inas
much as ye gave nc'; to these starving
ljitle ones, ye shut your heart and
your hands to me i .
Save One Ife Tody.
Think of human creatures who can
not weep in their agony, because
wanting all nourishment, they have
no longer tears. Think of hunger
that makes age and youth look alike
in one common sorrow.- Think of
fathers and mother suffering a slow
r?eath themselves, and watching,
while the crvel hunger is pinching
Iire udt of'tiieir children. Try end
imagine what it would be for any of us
to waken every morning if indaed
hunger let us sleep to a smaller and
smaller mouthful of bread; to watch
each other grow weaker, thinner and
thinner, sicker and sicker, to hear are
children's fretful cry for food, become
a whisper,and then die out altogether;
yet to Bee in their hunger-haunted
eyes the bitter cry, their tongues
could no longer utter. Oh! if you
have a loaf to spare, a dollar to
spare, a bushel of corn to spare, for
His Bake, send it to India! Send it
at once. Don't think you will-do it
tomorrow. Tomorrow may be too
late. Save some poor soul tody from
God has given you a grand oppor
tunity, don't shut the door in it's face.
Send your corn, or yovr dollar to the
Christian Herald, and be assured it
will take good care that . it goes
straight to those ready to perish. I3e
able to say when you next shut the
door of your closet, and pray to your
Father that seeth in secret "Father,
have done what I could." You need
have no fear that uod will lorget your
kindness. The word of the Lord is
your security. He says that those
who give to the poor and the needy,
lend unto Him, and that He will re
pay whatever they have given. If
you can trust the Lord God Almighty:
if you can take His word as reliable
security, if you can believe that Ho is
able and willing to repay you, then
there is no time to lose. Make
haste for the help of India and her
starving millions. And ba 6uro to
