At 2 o'clock thla afternoon, at the
home of the bride, occurred the mar
riage of Mlas Grace Stoutenbor
ough to George F. Uleh. The par
lor were beautifully decorated with
cut flowers and aaparagud ferns, the
bouquetsof poppies and nasturtiums be
ing particularly attractive.
The bridal party descended the
talra to the beautiful strains of Men
delssohn's famous wedding march,
played by MUs Mabol Lee of Fremont,
and took their places under a dainty
festoon of asparagus-ferns, ribbons and
flowers, arranged with graceful etlect,
and forming a moHt pleasing back
ground. The bride was becomingly attired in
a dainty gown of white Swiss, with
trimmings of narrow, white satin rib
bon. The ceremony was performed by the
iter. Dr. Baird, with impressive sol
emnity. The bride is the younger daughter
of Mr. and Mrs. C F. Stoutenborough,
being one of Plattsmouth's most
charming and accomplished young
During the past year she has occu
pied a position in the schools of this
city, having proven a most eflicient

and respect of pupils, parents and co
workers. The groom is a young man of gen

confidence of a large circle of friends.
At present he occupies a lucrative po
sition with the Illinois Central rail
road, and is located at Denver, where
he has a home in readiness for his
The happy couple left on the 3:33
train for Denver over the Burlington.
The out-of-town guests were: Will J.
Stevens, Mr. and Mrs. Spratt, Dr.Gish,
H. W. Stoutenborough, Omaha; Miss
Mabel Le, Fremont. Partial arrange
ments had been made for a more elab
orate wedding, but owing to the re
cent death of the mother of Mr. Gish,
only relatives of the family were in
vited. The News joins the many friends of
Mr. and Mrs. Gish in wishing that
happiness and success may be theirs.
Bid Farewell to Young Couple.
Last evening a small company of
young people gathered in response to
invitation at the home of Mr. and Mrs.
C. F. Stoutenborough, as a farewell to
their daughter, Grace, and Mr. G. F.
Glshe, who departed this afternoon for
their, new home in Denver. The
guests of honor were Miss Edith Pat
terson, Mr. C. F. King, and their wed
The early part of the evening was
spent on the porches, but as the allur
ing strains of Mendellsohn's wedding
march were wafted from within, a
line of march was formed and all en
tered where selections of vocal and in
strumental music were listened to with
A dead silence fell upon the com
pany as the hostess, entering, an
nounced a conference of ghost to be
held in the adjoining room, in which
all present were expected to partici
pate. With measured tread and
gloomy .foreboding the awe-stricken
ones assembled about a large table
upon which appeared a pile of tooth
picks, three of which might be taken
by each, and arranged with care be
fore him, but never touched again, lest
he be forced to forfeit one of his
Cards on which were written num
bers ranging from one to twenty were
passed, which must be placed beside
the tooth picks, not to be touched
until the ghostly thrice-repeated rap
was heard, at which time he was at
liberty to look. If the number were
large he forced his ghostly right hand
neighbor to exchange with him. The
person holding the highest number
must forfeit a toothpick, thereby in
creasing his chances of becoming a
ghost. For when his toothpicks are
gone he turns to a ghost and is there
fore ostracized, and avoided as a thing
too horrible to be seen, heard or
touched, and to whose pleadings and
questions a deaf ear must be turned.
To talk to a ghost is to pay a forfeit.
The one who succeeds in holding his
possession is tne "angel, "having with
stood the persuasive allurments of the
wary restless spirits.
When the guise of human failings
was withdrawn from the "angel" of
last night, although pleasing, so great
was the surprise at the revelation, as
to be almost overwhelming.
The ghosts and angel, feeling the
need, took flight to the open air,
whence all emerged at the request of
the hostess and found tables spread as
by magic, inviting the haunted spirits
to be at rest,' and refreshed by cooling
nectar and ambrosian dainties. To
add the finishing grace two chairs
luxuriantly arrranged Irom natures
greenery awaited occupancy by the
brides to-be, but, shamefully ignored
bv them, were acknowledged ty tne
Messrs. King and Gish, though but for
a passing moment, when order reigned
supreme. The eayety continued until
a late) hour when all were loath to
leave, having spent so delightful an
Good-byes, hearty hand-shaking,
well-wishing and congratulatory ex
pressions were copiously bestowed
upon the two happy couples, as all
realized that this was about the last
of the festivities at which these cher
ished friends would be present,for some
time, at least.

Marshal Slater collared a hobo last
evening near the old canning factory
site, on Third street. When asked
where he was from, the fellow replied
that ho had just come down from the
mouu tains, but could not state for cer
tain where he was going. In view of
the fact that night was coming on and
tho man appeared to be hungry and
homeless, tho officer sugosted that he
stay at tho jail over nijjht. The
strangor nearly choked in his eager
ness to thank the marshal and the in
vitation was forthwith accepted. This
morning tho visitor was given his
walking papers tho marshal nccom
paning him down the track for a dis
tauco and when they reached a place
where a good view of tho fertile fields
of Iowa could be obtained, the officer
proceeded to give him advice and in
formation regarding the bright pros
pects and pleasant conditions which a
hobo was liable to meet with in tho
state across the rivor. Before part

eye, again expressed his gratitude for
the kind hospitality shown him in
Case In Justice Court.
Justice Aicher was engaged this af
ternoon hearing tho case wherein llob
ert Johnson sues Ilattie Harkins to re
cover the sum of $35. Johnson claimed
that ho worked for Miss llarkins
three days and loaned her small sums
of money at various times.
The defendant admitted that the
work had been performed, but claimed
that Johnson had agreed to do the
work free of charge rather than to be
idle. She denied absolutely that she
had ever prevailed upon the plaintiff
to loan her money.
After the testimony had been con
eluded, Justice Archer decided to take
the matter under advisement until

and the fact that the affair had been
Dostpoued a week had a tendency to
draw out a far larger crowd than had
been expected. Tho Bohemian band
furnished the music for the occasion.
Burned His Hauds.
Tom Dabb, who looks after the boil

with an accident yesterday afternoon
which resulted in his hands being
badly burned. He was painting the
front of a boiler, which happened to
be hot at the time, when the oil in the
paint suddenly became ignited, with
the result above stated. The burns
were very painful, and will compel
