CEDAR CREEK DOINGS i fflynard
Charivari Tarty Calls Upon Mr.
and Mrs. Peter Schroeder
and Have Good Time.
Cedar Ckef.k, Neb.-(Special Cor
respondence) -Wednesday evening at
8 o'clock a crowd of young men and
boys left Cedar Creek well supplied
with hot puns, tin pans, cow bells and
other noise making instruments, bound
' for the farm house of Phillip Stoehr,
one mile southwest of town, where
they had located Mr. Pecer Schroeder
and Mrs. Maggie Schroeder, bride and
groom. The march was well made un
der the leadership of Capt. H. G. Frey,
and his leutenant, J. S. Woltr, ana al
ter getting reinforcements at John
Gauers, arrived at the home in two
columns, the home guard carbineers
and the dish pan brigade. When within
twenty yards of the house, the bugle
sounded the charge. The surprise was
so complete that even the numerous
dogs were taken unaware, and barked
not. In less time than it takes to
think about it, the air was full of ear
splitting noises, and the din of battle
was at its highest. Mr. Stoehr and
others rushed out of the house panic
stricken, evidently thinking the ele
ments had broken loose. Upon seeing
the "Grand Army of Tan Pounders"
before him and the flash of guns, he
became himself once . more, and tried
i . ?i ITsMtroimv trior
to persuade silence. ""''
was no lull in the activities unui mr. ,
Schroder and wife presented them-1
selves, whereupon the noise ceased as ;
suddenly as it had begun. After hearty ,
congratulations had gone out to the j
happy couple, and many warm handj
shakes, the whole army was encamped
in the cellar, where the genial host, Mr.
Phillip Stoehr, in a short oration pro
claimed welcome to all, and then as
sisted by Mr. Hans Schroeder and Jake
Cohnes, proceeded to satisfy all wants,
thirst as well as hunger. The ladies
brought down pies, cakes, and other
delicacies too numerous to mention.
The army had had a hard march, but
was repaid beyond measure, after a
- few hours of merry making, were again
called to fall in line for the return
mar?h Contrary to presumption the
march was made in good order, and
part of it on double quick time. Of
course there were a few stragglers, but
the company was disbanded in good
