that day cannot be hurried nor con
trolled. Steadfastly he re fused to let

The wedding precession consisted of
the bride leaning on the arm of Mr. J

Mrs. Fitzgerald, Mr. M. Kelley and
Miss H. Cogncy, followed by the im

The ceremony, after the ritual of
the Reman Catholic church, including
high mas, the partaking of the sac

half. The bride's dress, which was
very becoming, was a brown silk made
with Breton basque and overskirt, and
trimmed with pearl buttons; lace tie
and a hat of brown straw trimmed
with shaded brown ribbon and silk.
After the ceremony a few of the
intimate friends of the bridal party
adjourned to the mansion of John

THE BATTLE OF
BALLOTS ABOUT OVER
from Tuesday's Dally.
Today marked the close of one of
me most exciting state campaigns
that has been held in Nebraska for
many years and one that is filled with
a great many uncertainties owing to
the many complex issues that are
before the voters to settle. Whatever
the outcome of the, battle may be, it
certainly is a relief to get away front
the arguments and' turmoil that has
been occasioned by the campaign. The
political issues have largely been
overshadowed by the fact that the
prohibition question was uppermost in
the minds of the voters and a greater
effort lias been put forth in this part
of the campaign. The presidential
campaign has also added interest to
the contest and the state has been
visited by a great array of the great
men of both parties, from President
Wilson down to numerous congress
men. The streets of this city have
been thronged with candidates for
the last two days and a large array
of workers for both parties made
things lively for the voter today when
the unwary citizen ventured forth to
cast a free and unterrified ballot.
MRS. FRANK OHM'S
SISTER DIES IN OMAHA
A message was received in this city
this morning announcing the death at
Omaha of Mrs. Rqerbeck, a sister of
Mrs. Frank Ohm of this place. Mrs.
Hoe: beck had been at the hospital for
the past week, and was operated on
Saturday in the hopes of giving her
relief, but without success, as she had
grown steadily worse until death came
to her relief. Mrs. Ohm was at her
sister's bedside when the death mes
senger came, and in her sorrow will
receive the deepest sympathy of p
large circle of friends in this locality,
who will share with her the grief at
the loss of the sister. The funeral
will be held in Omaha, but the mes
sage failed to give the time of the
service. Mrs. Roerback was a lady in
the dawning of life and her untimely
death has been a most severe shock
to the relatives and friends.
William Atchison of Elmwood was
in the city yesterday afternoon, com
ing in with the election returns from
Stove Creek precinct.
A. C. Cary and little grandson were
among those going to Omaha this
morning, where they will spend the
day, and the little boy will be given
treatment by a specialist.
Mrs. John Hirz and daughter, Miss
Lena, .were among those going to Om
aha this morning, where they will
visit for the day.
Dr. H. Thomsen was among those
going to Omaha this afternoon to
spend a few hours looking after some
matters of business.
M. E. Manspcaker was among those
going to Omaha this afternoon to
spend a few hours in that city attend
ing to some matters of business. "
