I j. j ceremony was simple, yet im-
pit-ssive, and a large number of the
frii r.ds of ihe contracting parties were
'ri?ir-t witness the nuptials. On
the reading" stand on the platform a
Louuet of white chrysanthemums were
placed and added their beauty to the
happy eent, and this was the only decoration used in the church.
Tie-ceding the wedding services Mr. E.
II- Wescott played as a prelude "I
Love Yoj Truly" and "The Sweetest
Story Ever Told," both of which Hvere
very beautiful. Mrs. E. II. Wescott,
ju.-t before the ceremony, sang in her
usual charming manner, "Oh, Promise
Me" by DcKoven, and as the last
jiotvs of the beautiful love song died
iiay. the "Lohengrin" wedding march
was mounded on the organ by Mr. Wes
io:t as the bridal party entered the

A message was received here this
morning by Mr. and Mrs. M. E. But
tery announcing that their daughter,
Miss Essie, was seriously ill at Peru
where she has been attending school
for some months past. The case seems
to be one of appendicitis and Mrs.
Buttery, mother of the young lady,
will leave this afternoon for Peru to
be at her bedside and do all possible
in her care. The host of friends in
the city of Miss Essie will trust that
that she may recover from the attack
without any serious consequences and
soon be able to resume her school

Lakewood, N. J., Nov. 22.--Charles
E. Hughes, republican candidate lor
president in the recent election, to
night sent to President Wilson a tele-
i,jnir him upon his re
gram congratulating "
election. , . ,
In his telegram Mr. Hughes said:
"Because of the closeness of the vote
I have awaited the official count in
Califo"ia antJ now that il has been
virtually completed, -permit me to
extend to you my congratulations upon
vour re-election. I desire also to ex-
i t i e r..i

New York, Nov 22. William 11.
Wilsox, chairman of the republican
national committee, tonight issued
the following statement in reference
to Mr. Hughes' telegram to President
Wilson :
"Having conferred by telephone
during the day and late this afternoon
with the republican state committee
and the republican national commit
teeman in California, I am informed
that the official canvass of the vote
has been so nearly completed that no
change will result from the few pre
cincts not counted in the returns thus
far compiled.
"This means that the majority for
the Wilson electors in California
ranges from about 1.200 to 3,S00
votes, and that this is the final result
of the canvass for which we have
been waiting. So far as any recount
is concerned, the national committee
is not advised that there are sufli
cient grounds to call for such an ap
plication." Washington. Nov. 22. President
Wilson was :-.t a theater with Mrs
Wilson when the telegram from Mr.
Hughes readied the White House.
There was no comment. Sonic of the
hundreds of messages of congratula
tion received during the past ten days
and withheld from publication
M: Iiughcs shovld be heard from
probably will be given out tomoi'ro".
The stranger who lifted the hunting
coat from the office of W. W. Wasley
yesterday afternoon, was taken over
to the city jail this morning, wherq
he remained for several hours, until
it was decided that it was best to
turn him loose as he was willing to
get out of the city, and save the
necessity of the city having to board
him for the next thirty days. The
coat was restored to the owner, and
as no serious damage was done the
police decided tnat it would save
the city money if this gentleman as
well as eight other floaters were sent
forth on their way, and to rid the
city of them the police escorted them
to the city limits and started them
eastward, where they claimed they de
sired to go. This is a good move, as
it will save the city a lot of expense
in caring for the prisoners and it
would not benefit anyone to have the
men quartered here at the public ex
pense. There are a lot of strangers
traveling through at this time of the
year en route from the frigid lands
of the north to the sunny southern
climes, and it keeps both the day and
night police busy in rounding them
up and keeping them from scattering
over tHe city, and as soon as practical
they are all fired out of town.
This morning Sam Windham ar
rived home from the United States
Military academy at West Point
where he has been for the past several
months taking up his course in mili
tary training." Mr. Windham has
been suffering a great deal of trouble
with his eyesight during the last six
weeks and was unable to carry on
his work and accordingly was given a
leave of absence to determine how
serious his ej'esight was affected and
will remain at home until recalled by
the war department.

James Marasek, who conducts the
dairy south of the city, is mourning
the loss of six of his finest cows
that were worth in the neighborhood
of .")0() and which were the chief
mainstays of the dairy. The cows
were allowed out in the con stalks io
graze and yesterday they proceeded to
over eat with the result that six of
them are now dead. As soon as the
lllnes of the cows was noticed a vet
ernarian was called from this city to
do what was possible for the animals
but the greater part of them died
before it was possible to do anything
for them. The veternarian had one
of the animals opened up to deter
mine the exact cause of the death and
found that it was due to the over
eating and not to corn stalk disease
Had it been known at the start what
was the matter it might have been pos
sible to save some of the cows but
this was not learned until too late
The loss is quite a heavy one to Mr.
.uarasek and certainly it will be a
hard matter to replace the fine milk
cows that he has been abje to place
in his herd in the last few years
The death of these cows should serve
as a warning to others to avoid let
ting their cattle eat too freely of
corn stalks.

From dispatches" appearing from
Falls City it would seem that the city
government in that city was preparing
to establish a municipal pond during
the coming winter fcr its young folks,
and will for that purpose convert the
ponds in their city park into skating
places, where the lovers of this winter
sport may enjoy themselves. The ac
tion of the Falls City people brings to
mind the fact that this would be a
mighty good move for Plattsmouth to
undertake this winter and provide a
safe' place for the skaters to enjoy
themselves without the more or less
element of danger that is connected
with skating on the Missouri river.
This matter has been discussed several
times by the citizens of Plattsmouth
and at one time an attempt was made
to flood the base ball park for the
use of the skaters, but it was started
too late in the season and was not as
successful as it should have been, but
if started early in the season when
the weather was good and the nights
cold might prove a success. There
should be some place where skating
could be enjoyed, and it is worth
while to look over the situation and
see if some spot cannot be secured
where a nice skating pond can be pre
pared that would fill the needs of the
lovers of skating.
At an early hour this morning the
home of Mr. and Mrs. Fritz Sicmoneit,
a few miles west of this city, received
a call from the stork, which brought
with it a fine little daughter io make
her future home with this estimable
ccuple. The little daughter is the first
in the family and the joy of both the
parents is intense over the happiness
that has befallen Cum. The little on?
is just about a fine a girl as "there
is in this locality, and Fritz is un
doubtedly the happiest man in the
ccuntv over the addition that has been
made to the family.

The east wing of the state house is
to be propped up so that it will be
absolutely safe as a meeting place for
the members elected to the house of
representatives this winter. The state
board of educational lands and funds,
which has control of the capital and
grounds, has decided to do that much.
This decision was not arrived at until
it was determined that the legislature
would be democratic by a large ma
jority. Governor Morehead, Secretary of
State Pool, State Treasurer Hall and
Land Commissioner Beckm'ann met
after the returns were nearly all in,
and elecided upori this course. Attor
ney General Reed is a member of the
board, but he was not present.
The board acted upon a report and
recommendations signed by State En
gineer George E. Johnson and J. H.
Craddock of Omaha, member-elect to
the house, and an architect selected
by Governor Morehead to advise the
state board.
The board will prop up the floors
and ceiling of the defective cast wing
in which representative hall is situ
ated. This will be done from the base
ment floor upward, so that the floors
will be supported independent of the
outer walls. The walls lean outward,
so if they take a notion some stormy
v.inter day to tumble to the ground,
the 100 members of the house, with
the speaker and spectators will be left
in an open air perch, somewhat scared
but able to proceed with legislation.
The engineer and architect do not
ray anything about it, but in the event
the walls falPout a canvas curtain
cculd be dropped from the top of the
ceiling and legislation could . proceed
under a tent with a permanent roo
What Is to Be Done?
The story of the work that is to be
dene to prop up the floors and ceiling
is told by Mr. Johnson and Mr. Crad
dock in their own peculiar style in the
following report, which the state
board agreed to follow:
"That we put a heavy timber for
sill in bvrcmert ;.nd a timber plate at
ceiling, using lx's not over four feet
center- to center, and shore up
ment floor.'
"Floor above basement to have a sil
and plate and 4xo uprights on each
side of main windows, and have later
:il braces on same, so as not to ob
stiuct light or easy access to win
"In hall of representatives plate to
be braced on floor and at ceiling.
.Studding on each side ot window, ox

veeond story windows, and to have
lateral braces, making the building
obsolutely safe. The floors to bo free
of any bearing upon walls. In this
manner we will remove from the
mimfs of the people all fear of col
"The outside walls cculd be taken
down and the floors would sjnnd with
