MARRIED AT NORTH LOUP.
From Monday's Daily.
Dan Cupid always was'' a daring
little rascal, and has cut many capers,
but the last one which he has slipped
over on us was when he induced
' James Johns to slip away and secure
for himself a bride, and then as
quietly slip home again and go to
' housekeeping as though nothing had
happened. Last Thursday James M.
Johns of Plattsmouth and Mrs. J. B.
Tipton of North Loup, Nebraska were
united in matrimony at North Loup,
'and returned to riattsmouth, where
they are living like old folks, leaving
the world to find out the fact of
their marriage as best they could.

jthe wedding is forfeited because we
