joining them as husband and wife,
were pronounced by the minister.
The young couple were acoompaQie.1
by the best man, Wm. Puis, a brother

HARRY THAW'S MOTHER
She Has Been One of the Principal Donors
ot the Omaha Seminary.
Apropos of the trial of Harry Thaw,
it is of interest to Netraskans, and
especially to Omaha Presbyterians,
that his mother has been one of the
principal donors to the Omaha Theol
ogical seminary, though she has never
been able to make a trip west to carry
out her expressed wishes to visit the
institution, says the World-Herald.
Mrs. Thaw and Mr. Thomas Mc
Dougall, a prominent Presbyterian
layman of Cincinnati, jointly bought
the old Cozzens house, George Francis
Train's famous hotel for the use of the
seminary in the early days. Upon the
death of Mr. McDougal in ?899, it was
found he had given his share to the
seminary outright. Mjs. Thaw deeded
her share to the seminary perhaps a
year later and this gift enabled the
seminary trustees to sell at advantage
after relocating and building in
Mr. William Thaw was a strong
Presbyterian and generouscontributor
to its missions and institutions, and
his wife has been liberal also, giving
perhaps each year to the seminary and
doubtless to other educational insti
tutions in the west.
