AN EARLY SPRING WEDDING.
Mr. C. J. Meisinger and Miss Carrie Krae
ger Happily United In Wedlock.
Ono of the most beautiful weddings
of the season occurred at the home of
the bride's parents, three miles south
of Cedar Creek, on Wednesday, March
2, 1004, when Mr. C. J. Meisinger and
Miss Carrie Kraeger were happily
united In the holy bonds of wedlock,
Rev. Sprlegel ofllciating.
The ceremony was witnessed by a
goodly number of relatives and friends
of the contracting parties, all of whom
remained to partake of a most sump
tuous repast soon after the nuptial
knot was tied.
The bride Is a daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. Adam Kraeger, who are among
the most highly respected families of
Cass county, and the Journal thinks
the groom Is very fortunate In securing
so lovely and worthy young lady
to accompany him down the rugged
pathway of Time.
The groom Is a son of Mr. and Mrs.
Jacob Meisinger, and it Is needless to
say is also a member of one of the best
families of Cass county. The Gride can
feel equally fortunate In knowing that
she has chosen from a vast number of
excellent young men that Cass county
boasts of one of the most worthy.
Mr. and Mrs. Meisinger will make
their future home on the farm recent
ly purchased by the bride's father, and
known as the Stoehr place, where they
will soon be at home to their friends;
and may the pleasant memories attend
ant upon this occasion follow them to
their new home, and remain fresh In
their memories for all time to come.
The Journal joins the hosts of
friends of Mr. and Mrs. Meisinger In
wishing them every gtxxl thing for
the future, and may prosperity, Joy,
peace and the good will of all be with
them to the end of life.

Visited Bj Another Disastrous Conflagra
tion, li Which i Prominent Citizen
Perishes In the Flames.
About two o'clock last Friday morn
ing Greenwood people were aroused
from their peaceful slumbers by an ex
plosion almost equal to that of an
earthquake. It was soon ascertained
that It was caused from the explosion
of acetylene gas in the basment of the
opera house where the light plant was
installed. The tire soon spread, de
stroying that building, a mill and an
adjoining feed store. Mr. Geo. T. Cut
ler, proprietor of the opera house, had
gone down Into the basement, after
the masquerade ball was over, to turq
off the gas, but no sooner had he en
tered than the explosion occurred, and
Mr. Cutler was caught therein with
possible means of escape and
perished In the flames.
George T. Cutler was one of the pio
neers of Greenwood, moving to that
locality twenty years ago, establishing
himself in business. He put in a
wagon and carriage shop and fitted it
up with modern improvements. As he
prospered he built a feed grinding es
tablishment, and later bought the old
Congregational church, which ad-
olned his business house, and re
modeled it into what has been said to
be the finest opera house in any Ne
Mr. Cutler was odd In many ways.
Ho was a real Yankee, and among
other fads wore a straw hat, winter
and summer. He always said he be
lieved In keeping his head cool. No
one will be more missed In that vicinity
than George T. Cutler, whom everyone
respected for his sterling qualities. ;
Greenwood has been unfortunate in
the way of Mies during the past few
months. During the late summer
months the big lumber and implement
establishment of M. D. Kearn burned,
entailing a heavy lass. On New Year's
night the Swanback block caught fire
and was destroyed; a drug store, hard
ware and millinery store being burned
together with the Odd Fellows hall.
Now comes the Cutler fire, which Ms
the worst of all, for It cost the life of
one of Greenwood's most enterprising
Greenwood had its first big fire, for
village, about fifteen years ago,
when nearly one whole block of build
ings was burned on the south side of
the main street. The buildings have
been replaced, In part. Next came,
five or six years ago, the fire which
burned the J. J. Fitzgerald building,
the largest business house In thejtown.
To inadequate fire protection Is at
tributed the repeated losses. The
only means of combating the (lames is
by the use of a force hand-pump and
Mr. Cutler was a brother of the late
Martin II. Cutler, for years a promi
nent factor in republican politics In
Cass county, who was also a brother-
in-law of the late T. M. Marquette,
the noted western attorney.
Mrs. Cutler, who has been in 111
health for many years, was sleeping In
the upper part of the building and lu
the excitement could not get the door
open. Alter the names had enveloped
the building James E. Cull ion, a dray
man, rushed through them and car
ried Mrs. Cutler out.
The remains of George T. Cutler will
be taken to Springfield, Mass., for In
terment. Mrs. Cutler will also go east,
where she will make her home.
Brisk Day for Marriage Licenses.
Judge Travis' office presented a very
busy scene last Sacurday. especially In
the marriage license department. For
awhile it looked as though all the young
people in Cass county had concluded
to abandon the life of single blessed
ness. The following parties were grant
ed marriage permits: Jacob Hennlngs,
of Cedar Creek, aged 20, and Miss
Maude Temple, of Louisville, aged 18;
Conrad Meisinger, aged 21, and Miss
Sophia C. Kraeger, aged 22, both of
Cedar Creek; Leberecht Holzel, of Mur
dock, aged 3", and Miss Barbara Heln-
eman, of l'lattsmouth, aged 22; Rufus
L. Clark, of West Point, Neb., aged 30,
and Miss Flora M. Comer, of Omaha,
aged 22. The last named couple were
married In the Perkins nousc parlor
by Judge Travis soon after the permit

One of t he most remarkable cases of

coughing and straining so weakened
me that I ran down In weight from 14S

Death of a Child.
The little son of Otto Sprleck died
at the home of his grand-parents, Mr.
and Mrs. Jacob Meisinger, seven miles
west of l'lattsmouth on Wednesday
morning, March 3, aged one year and
seven days. It Just lacks seven days
of being one year since the little one's
mother died. The funeral will take
place today from the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Meisinger and the remains will

RULIN6 IN THE KUPKA CASE.
Judge Trnls Denies the Application to Re-
Last Monday Judge Travis banded
down bis decision in the matter of, the
application for the removal of C. S.
Polk, as administrator of the estate
of Ernst Kupka, which is as follows:
Now on this 29th day of February,
1904, this cause having been taken un
der advisement from the day
, 1U04 to tiii9day, and the court
being well and fully advised in the
premises doth find from the evidences:
1st. That Johanna Sayre and John
Kupke were the heirs at law of Ernst
2nd. That prior to the filling of the
petition for the removal of Carey S.
Polk, administrator of the estate of
Ernst Kupke, deceased, said Johanna
Sayre, and John Kupke sold, assigned,
conveyed, and transferred all their In
terest In the estate of their father,
Ernst Kupke, to Carey S. Polk.
3rd. That an action Is now pending
and was pending In the district court
of Cass county, Neb., atthetimethc.se
proceedings were commenced to set
aside and annul the said conveyances
made by said Johanna Sayre and John
Kupke to Carey S. Polk of the real es
tate and personal property left by said
Ernst Kupke, deceased, that said ac
tion Is still pending and undetermined
in said court.
4th. Wherefore It U considered by
tbe court that said Johanna Say re and
John Kupke, have no Interest In the
real or personal estate left by said
John Kupke at this time,' which eL
1 1 ties them to apply to this court for
the removal of the administrator of
the estate of Ernst Kupke. The ap
plication Is denied and the petition
dismissed, to all of which said Johanna
Sayre and John Kupke except.
5th. The court further finds that
said application to remove the admin
istrator was commenced in good faith,
It Is therefore considered by the court
tbat the costs of said proceedings
should be taxed to the estate of Ernst
6th. It is further ordered by the
court that the administrator, Carey S,
Polk, shall file a report forthwith of
his doings as administrator of said es
tate and shall include In said report
the rents of the land of which Ernst
Kupke died seized for the year 1803
and up to date the 1st day of March,
1904. The court finds that the amount
of the bond of Carey S. folk, admlnls
trator of the estate of Ernst Kupke,
Is only $ii,000, and the bond is Insuffl
cicnt as to amount.
th. It Is therefore ordered by the
court that Carey S. Tolk, admlnlstra
tor, file a new bond, as administrator
of the estate of Ernst Kupke, deceased,
and that the amount of said Ixmd be
fixed at the sum of twenty-two thou
sand dollars ($22,000) said bond to be
filed for approval on or before the 15th
day of March. 1904, to all of whlcl

The Knabe Will Case Settled.
On the 20th day of October, 1892,
John C. Knabe, sr., of Nchawka, Cass
county, made his last will and testa
ment and tiled it in the county court
of Cass county, securely sealed in an
envelope In the manner as by law pro-
ided. Hy his will ho devised and be
queathed to his wife all of bis real
estate and personal property in posses
sion, reversion, or remainder for her
benefit during her natural li To- At
the death of his wife, Anna Knabe,
said property, real and personal, was
devised to John C. Knabe, jr. Mrs.
Knabe died first.
At the death of John C. Knabe, sr.,
he owned 344 acres of land, about
$21,000 in money and about $3,000 in
other personal property. He also dc-
ised to Henry Knabe, Margaret C.
Ilehrens and Alfred Hrant, $" each and
whatever money and credits he was
possessed at his death was to be equal
ly divided between JohnC. Knabe, jr.,
Henry Knabe, Margaret I'.ehrens and
Alfred Hrant, his grandson. l!y the
terms of the will the $21,000 was to be
divided between the four heirs, which
would be '),2.V) each, hut Henry
Knabe was not satistled. The will
Is perhaps the most skillfully arid care
fully drawn will that has been probat
ed in the probate court of Cass county
for years. It was prepared by A. N.
Sullivan and John M. Leyda.
In the probate court it was shown
that John C. Knabe, sr., was at the
time of the making of said will of sound
mind and memory, and that undue in
fluence had not been used and the will
was admitted to probate by Judge
Douglass, but Henry Knabe and Mar
garet Ilehrens were dissatisfied, so ap
pealed to the district court. John C.
Knabe, Jr , deprecating the scandal
created by such a suit, and desiring to
maintain peace in the family, gave up
Ills share In the money to the other
heirs; the other heirs paying tlm cost
of the contest. Everybody in Cass
county, who was acquainted w ith John
C. Knabe, sr., knows that he was a
level-headed, cool, determined man:
that nobody could use undue influence
witli him, and that he was of sound
mind from the day he came to this
county until the day of his death.
John C. Knalie, jr., has by his mag
nanimous action show n that he cared
more for peace than he did for money.
If every brother was as conscientious
as he and every son as careful of the
good name of his father and his family
as John C. Knabe, J , there would be
but few will contests In the courts.
Loulsvl lie Bridge Case.
The Louisville bridge case was tiled
In the district court of Sarpy county
last week and has had two lit arings in
the supreme court, where It was decid
ed in favor of Cass county. Tho case
was remanded to the district court for
Judgment. When the mailer of having
the mandate carried out ciimo up, by
consent of the attorneys Judge Sutton
granted a motion for rehearing before
the supremo court ami recalled the
mandate. This virtually concedes n
victory for Cass comity, in the fact that
the nutter has for the third time been
referred to the supreme court. Hut
then it may lie some consolation to the
Sarpy county authorities In getting a
little more limn for paying over Hie
money InCuHtcnunty, that they should
have paid I mg since.

A GRAND CHINA WEDDING.
Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Tighe's Many Friends
Give Them a Complete Surprise.
Last Saturday evening was a period
that will long he remembered by Mr.
and Mrs. Joseph Tighe of Wabash, the
occasion being the anniversary of their
2uili, or China wedding. About 1:M
o'clock the friends of the parties as
sembled at the M. W. A. hall and after
a few preparations proceeded to sur
prise this worthy couple. At eight
o'clock a procession was formed anil
started for the residence of Mr. and
Mrs. Tighe, led by a Chinese priest
and four attendants all in Chinese cos
tumes, four male waiters and four
female cooks, all costumed in long
white aprons and caps, followed the
rest of t he company and proceeded to
the residence of Mr. and Mrs. Tighe.
As the procession passed the barber
shop Mr. Tighe was discovered in the
chair, instantly the procession halted
and the Chinese attendants assisted
liy others, took Joe from the chair only
after a hard struggle, but lie finally
succumbed and the procession moved
on. On arriving at the house the
couple were arrayed in their wedding
garments and entered tin parlors to
the music of a wedding march -"A
hot time in the old town" and the
ceremony that reunited them for
twenty years more was delivered in
the Chinese language bv Lee Sing Too,
the Chinese priest. The bride" anil

A. K. Lake acted as an interpreter,
and made the matter very plain to
the amusement of all. A fter the cere

After which in a fe well chosen re
marks the reunited couple were pre
sented with a beautiful loo-piece China
set. Supper being announced the pro
cession was again formed and the party
repaired to the Woodman hall where
a banquet was served to w hich all liar-
took. The hall and tatdes were taste
fully and gaily decorated with Chinese
colors in crepe paper, while number
less Chinese lanterns adorned the walls
ana ceiling. J was a scene that we
are powerless to describe and while

it more correctly, I ask the Journal to

incidents of the very pleasant alTair,
which was a perfect surprise to Mr.
and Mrs. Joseph Tighe, up to the time
when a party of soinesixty friendsaiid
neighbors from Wabash and surround
ing country took the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Tighe by storm, and the fun com
ineiiced. 1'irsi on mo program was
the marriage ceremony, performed by
a Chinese minister in the Chinese Ian
guage, which we did not understand
and which Mr. A. K. Lake, who by the
way Is a Chinese scholar, translated
Into Knglish. The groom promised
many things he would do to Ids w if
and me urine aiso mane many prom
ises. The bride was dressed In white
with red mosquito bar over her head
on which was pinned a big yellow rose
as her bridal veil, it Is customary
after tbe marriage ceremony is per
formed for the minister to kiss the
bride lirst, but here Oscar Allen, win
was the groom's best man, cheated the
minister, by taking the llrst kiss.

monies of the pleasing alTair, under
bUnds his business, for everything on
the program was carried out to tho
letter, and nobody will suffer with tho
blues while he Is about.
The ladies who engineered the pleas
ant entertainment, one and all deserve
tbe greatest praise. The pure China
dishes presented to Mr. and Mrs.
Tighe are the finest I have seen. Tho
musical program was splendid. Mrs.
l'armenter's performance on the piano
was masterly. Tho selections given on
the violin by Mr. Neihart of Klin
wood, was splendid. No wonder, for
Mr. Neihart received his violin In
struction from tbe celebrated master
of the violin, Paganinl. Mr. Steve
Hulfish pleased all by singing two se
lections. His voice is today' just as
clear and sweet as it was thirty years
The oyster supper at the Woodman
Hall was grand. The cooks and wait
ers understood their business. They
