CEREMONY OCCURS AT SIX P. M.
At the Beautiful Home of the Bride Five Miles
South of Plattsmoulh
After the cooling showers of yester
day had cleared the air and all nature
was refreshed, and attuned to the in
spiring strains of the wedding march as
presented by Mrs. Ed Furlong of Steam
boat Springs, Colorado, a sister of the
bride, at the beautiful country home of
Mr. and Mrs. William Taylor, at the
close of the day and in the presence of
some sixty invited guests and the im
mediate members of the family, pro

long branch of rose bush, on the end of
which a bud was encircled by a bright
gold band ring, the emblem of never
ending bliss, a3 ring-bearer; next came

arm with Miss Edna Propst, the maid
of honor, with Robert Thayer Propst,

cago, cousin of Thayer's, as best man,
following. Stopping under an arch of
pink roses they were married by Rev.
Jinks, pastor of the Presbyterian church
of Omaha. Many and joyous were the
wishes expressed for the future happi
ness and prosperity of the newly marri
ed pair, and all sat down to a three
course luncheon which was in charge of
Misses Edith Jean and Mayola Cox, as
sisted by Misses Ora Hutchinson and
Leona Sans, who demonstrated they
were past-mistresses of the cullinary
art, and experts in the capacity of the
sweets of this life, in a manner that
could not help but stimulate the appe
tite of the most particular epicure.
Presents useful, ornamental and beauti
ful, were given, and those who were
present surely made the newly married
pair feel that they were interested in
their future welfare, both by the
number and quality of the gifts, as well
as the manner of their giving, and the
joyousness which they were presented.
GETS EYE BADLY GUT
The Injured Man Goes
Omaha to be Treated
John Busche, while at work in the
machine shops this moring had his left
eye very severely cut with a steel chip
or shaving. The piece of steel cut
quite a gash in the corner of the eye,
extending partially across the iris. The
company physicians removed the shav
ing, but the contusion was of so
severe a nature that it was thought
best to take him to Omaha for the
assistance of an expert. So together
with his wife, and in company with J.
S. Livingston, Mr. Busche went to
Omaha on the fast mail and will there
have the eye treated by Dr. Gifford.
This injury is one of the kind that will
take the most delicate work of the ex
pert, as the gash in the corner will
have to be sewed, and in order that
that may be accomplished it will requier
the best and most delicate instruments.
In this we hope Mr. Busche the best of
success, well knowing that the case is
very serious, and only the very best of
treatment can preserve the sight of

The merry party, remained until a
late hour, departing when the happy
couple started for the train which they
took at Plattsmouth at a little after
mid-night, for Jasper, Colo., where
they will visit for a while. They spend
some six weeks in the west, and will
be at home at Mynard after August
the first. Pink and white were the
colors used in the decorations which
were very beautiful. Miss Taylor is
a very popular and beautiful young
lady, beloved by all who knew her. A
few years ago she was awarded a very
fine piano as being the most popular
young woman in Cass county. Thayer
Propst is a young man of sterling
character, and a rustler for business
and to whom the future promises ' a
large portion of success.
Both of these young people were born
and have spent their young lives in our
midst, and the Journal with their many
other friends wish them a happy
journey through life, and that their
skies may be as fair as the bride, and
their love as firm and true as the
strong right hand of the groom.
After the ceremony and the supper,
little Grace, daughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Ed. Furlong, was christened a member
of the Presbyterian church.
There were present besides the im
mediate family, some fifty neighbors,
friends, and the following out of town
guests: W. H. Taylor, wife and little son
of Plainview; Miss Nora Mix, a cousin
of the bride, of Omaha; Mrs. Ed. Fur

Miss Pearl Hagerman, of Clifton, Kas. ;
Edwin Mahoney, of Chicago; and Rev.

LET US FACE FACTS.
George Chalmers Richmond
Discusses Liquor Traffic.
In his sermon in Saint George's Epis
copal church in Rochester N. Y., recent
ly, Reverand Chalmers Richmond, in
discussing the liquor traffic, said:
"The saloon is in the world to stay.
Certain elements about it are good. It
is a social meeting place. Some of my
best parishioners in New York visits
the beer saloons regularly. I get a
number of men to come to church by
drinking beer with them. The German
loves his beer, and if taken temperate
ly it does no harm. The Frenchman
likes his wine, the Englishman his ale,
and so it goes. About all the clergy I
meet drink when they feel like it. Some
of the best wine I ever drank was hand
ed me by a vestryman. Some of the
finest whiskey on earth I saw near the
person of the church warden. One of
the highest church officials of of the
laity of Rochester is a brewer. What
of it? He makes good beer and many
men like it. Deny them their beer and
soon you would see dire consequences.
Let us face facts. We can not rush pub
It seems to Our Country that the
Rev. Richmond strikes the keynote that
will win many men. Meet them on their
own plane and then gradually raise their
ideals to a higher level. Instead of try
ing to close all of the saloons, let socie
ty put out of business the evil ones and
the criminal proprietors, but help to
make the better resorts better still,
until every place where beer, wine and
spirits are sold will be recognized as a
necssary and respectable part of socie
ty. As the preacher above states, the
German will have his beer, and the
Frenchman his wine, the Englishman
his ale, and he might add, the Ameri
can his whiskey.
Men will have appetites, all laws to
the contrary, so instead of making out
laws of those who sell liquors, let us
make them amenable to wholesome and
just regulations and acknowledge their
standing in our social life. Our Coun
