Two Preity Weddiu'S Take
Place intlie City Last
Elaborate Church Ceremony ol
Mollle Seiver and Ernest Tuey.
(From Thursday's Daily)
, The Month of Brides opened strong
yesterday with a decided increase in
t he marriage license business at the
court house, and two pretty weddings
in town last evening. Dan Cupid
has got a number of other vistims on
the string that he is going to tie up
before the month is over but he got
a good start on his spring work yester
day when he united two couples from
the youjiger set of the city.
At seven thirty in the evening,
Miss Helen Alfrida Roman and Carl
J.I. Holmbirg were made happy by the
tying of the knot by Rev. Mr. Swanson
of Wahoo. The ceremony took place
at the Gus Roman residence a couple
of miles south of town and the house,
prettily decorated with fist onus of
colored paper and fragrant flowers
was filled with a erowdof merry makers
numbering nearly one hundred. Short
ly after the appointed hour, the bridal
couple proceeded into the parlor, to the
sweet strains of Lohengrin wedding
march very effectively played by Miss
Ella Carlson, where the minister
performed the simple services. The
bride was beautifully gowned in a
dress of silk, having as her maids,
Miss Delia Roman, Miss Hulda Holm
berg and Miss Ruth Roman. The
best man was Edwin Roman, brother
of the bride.
Following the wedding ceremony,
the nartv sat down to a gorgeous ban
quet, elegantly served in many courses
and it was along towards midnight
when the last chair was pushed under
the table. About nine o clock the
counle was paid a call by a charivari
party of over fifty members part of
whom were organized as Koubek's
band. These carried any avail
able instrument from a tin can up to
a cornet and the music they rendered
could be heard for a mile. As a
matter of appreciation, they were
rewarded with a green back which sent
them hurrying down town to find a
nlace to spend it.
The out of town guests present were
Amiel Holmberg and wife of Wausa,
Neb.. Conrad. Holmberg and family
of Lincoln, Neb., August Johnson and
wife or Roval. Neb., Mr. and Mrs
O. Johnson and son of Omaha, Frank
Anderson of Sioux Citv and Miss
Delia Roman of Sioux City.
The more elaborate wedding of the
evening was the Seiver-Tuey nuptial
at the First Methodist church. The
auditorium of the church was de
cant lv decorated with large bunches
of flowers, the principal flower of
the evening being the Anteriaen beaut j
The bridal nartv gathered in the En-
worth League room at the rear of the
church and at the allotted hour
marched forward to the altar where
the couple were united by the pretty
riiitr service. Down the center aisle:
led the two little ribbon bearers,
Miss Gladys Wray and Miss Thelma
Denson, following whom was little
Doris McDaniel, bearing the ring in
the blossom of a large American
Beauty. The bride, daintily dressed
in a beautiful white silk messaline
followed with her father and the pastor
of the church, Rev. Mr. W. L. Austin.
Down the right aisle, proceeded the
groom with his best man and grooms
men, while the maid of honor and
bride's maids took the aisle to the left.
In front of the altar the parties met
and paused, the groom taking his
bride from the arm of her father,
stepped to the platform where the ring
bearer was waiting with the monstrous
bloom which held the ring. The scrip
tural reading was given by the minister
and with the uplifted right hand,
the couple was declared man and wife.
The music for thcV-casion, Mendel
ssohn's Wedding march, was beauti
fully played by Miss Jennie Tuey.
The maid of honor for the ceremony
was Miss Zeltna Tuey, sister of the
groom; the bride's maids, Misses Alice
and Hazel Tuey, Lillian Thompson,
Edna Wray and Clara Austin; the best
man, Jennings Seiver, groomsmen,
Herman Elders, Andrew Moore, Glen
Rawls, Don Seiver and George Hall.
After the cTemoiiy, the bridal party
and gucMs were ushered to the home
of the bride, the J. W. Seiver residence
where a bountiful spread was served
and congratulations were given the
newly wedded couple. The house was
decked in an abundance of flowers,
sweet peas, carnations and roses
and sweet music from the Platts-
niouth band helped to make lhe cv
ning an enjoyable one. During the
evening hours the place was the scene
of visitation of two different charivari
parties who made the night hideous
with their noise and blasts from mimi
The oui of town guests at the cere
mony were .Mrs. J.ouis .McUumu
and daughte r of Council Bluffs. Mr.
and Mrs. William McDaniel of Thur-
man, la. Mr. II . 0. Elders of Omaha.

Seiver of Oklahoma. Mrs. Mrs. Frank

The One That Got Away.
"Doc" Young, merchant's police,had
a thrilling experience last night in
capturing a man at the rear of White's
store where the moon was making
ghastly shadows and the torn cats
were giving their evening serenade.
By the dim light of lima, the officer
discerned the faint outline of a form
near the window of the store. Stealth
ily appraoching, with noisless tread,
the blue coat drew near the objesct
and when the form slipped under a
board near the window, the officer
had him in his grasp. Hurrying him
over to jail, he was found to be a
young lad about fifteen years of age,
who had been assuming a temporary
bunk at the rear of the store. No
charge was made against the fellow
and be was shortly released, but the
main part of the story is much like the
fishing narrative, "the biggest one got
away." The policeman was sure there
was another man on the scene who
made his getaway, although some
people think it was the cat he saw
scrambling over the fence.

CHICAGO AVENUE ABOUT
READY FOR THE GRADERS
Old Mill Has Been Razed, Trees
Cut Down and Poles are
Preliminary work for the macadam
pavement on Chicago avenue is now
proceeding at a gooel rate and the ap
pearance of the highway and its
general surroundings are greatly chang
ing. Many of the big tree's along the
creek had to be cut down in oreler to
make room for the wide paving. The
ase ball park with its former setting
of scrawny trees now looks as barren
as Cook's decsriptiem of the pole
and the sign covered fence looms up
like the price of living. The bridge
over the creek which served as an ap
proach to the park hasbeen removed
and the- fans are now forced to use the
north entrance to the diamond.
A force of over a dozen men are busy
at work in moving the poles of the Bell
company. It is quite an undertaking
and will consume the rest of the week
Some of the' poles now have to be placed
near the bottom of the creek which
necessitates cedars sixty feet in length
This takes a good many hours of hard
work to raise them into position anil
substantially brace them for their
strain. The changing of the line
makes it necessary to put in many new
poles and a carload shipment eif large
ones has decn received from Omaha
for the- work. The Plattsmouth Phone
company has long since finished
moving its poles. By the middle of
next week, at the latest, the road will
be ready to be turned over to the graft
There is but very little remaining
of the ld mill, an ancient landmark
of the city which jutted defiantly out
into the thoroughfare; workmen have
torn the structure down and the ma
terial has been carried away until
all that now stands is the eild boiler
and part of the foundation.
Burlington Team Play Again.
There is going to be some more real
base ball in Plattsmouth next Sunday
when the C. B. &. Q. team of Omaha
come back for another mixup. Platts
mouth trimmed them up at the last
game they played with them by the
score of 4 to 3. It will be remembered
it was a fast nine inning game with
both teams playing classy ball. The
bunch went back to Omaha with the
defeat on their shoulders but deter
mined to bring down a team next
time that would skin the . Platts
boys A phone message last night
announced they were coming anel

River Road Work.
The big i'Ievater was set in motion
this morning and the dirt commenced
to fly for the new river road across the
bar from tin' subway to the ferry.
In taking it through the subway
there was in t three inches eif room
left on cither side, it taking quite a
while to get the- machine through the
narrow passage and ready for act ion
on the either side. Ten heirses were
hitchetl onto it shortly after nine this
morning anel the plow elug itself into
the soft sanely hiaiu eif the bar. The
pieces e)f old tin which are scattered
through the groiiml offer the gre-atest
obstruction to the ope'ration of the
machine while bricks and small si ones
are readily thrown on the traveling
belt and dumped on the new reiad bed.
On account of the uneveness ..f the
ground, it is rather hard to get the ma
chine to show up at its best, but the
worst part of the work is now over and
as a be tter path is beaten the grading
will progress faster. All the stumps
and rubbish were hauled from the right
of way yesterday afterneion and the
work is being pushed rapidly.
Ex-Governor J. H. Mickey died

entire family was at the bedside,
his daughter, Mrs. Bertha Smith of
Denver, arriving yesterday.
When he took the office of governor
five years ago Governor Mickey was
warned by his family physician that
he was physically unable to bear the
strain of the task, lie suffered at
intervals from hardening of the ar

severe attacks, the last one enduring
ten elays. One son, James, graduated
