JUNE FIRST NUPTfALS Two Preity Weddiu'S Take Place intlie City Last Evening. ROMAN-HOLMBERG AND SEIVER-TLEY WEDDINGS 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 cal instruments. 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. Mr. Davits of Omaha. Miss Lottie Foote of Omaha. Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Seiver of Oklahoma. Mrs. Mrs. Frank Rennie of 'Madrid, Neb. Mrs. Lee Gunnison of Atchison, Kansas. 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. x sS X SOUTH BEND X X X xxxxxxxxxxxxxx Mrs. T.

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 ing gauge. 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.

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 Dead. Ex-Governor J. H.
