MARRIED IN ILLINOIS
Gecrge E. Lamphear, Son of Mr. and
Mrs. George Lamphear of This
City Married in Chicago.
The announcement has been re
ceived here by the relatives and
friends of the marriage on Wednes
day at Downer's Grove, Illinois, of
George E. Lamphear, formerly of this
city and Miss Nellie Andrus of
Downer's Grove. The wedding comes
as the result of a war time romance
as Mr. Lamphear nrst met his tnue
in 1917. when he enlisted in the
navy and was sent to the Great Lakes
training station, and there met Miss
Andrus. After serving for the dura
tion of the war the young man was
discharged from the navy and after
a few months spent here went to C hi
cago where he entered the employe
of the firm of Montgomery & Ward
wnere he is now employed. the re
turn to Chicago brought a renewal
of the war time friendship and which
soon deepened into love, culminating
in the marriage on Wednesday.
The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs.
George Lamphear of this city and is
well known and very popular with a
large circle of warm personal friends
who will learn of his new happiness
with the greatest of pleasure and ex
tend to the newly weds their best
wishes for their future happiness.
Owing to- the fact that the family
here are just recovering from quar
antine for small pox they were unable
to attend the wedding, which was
very quiet and attended by
Lamphear and family, a brother
the family of the bride.

be possible in a vey short time to get
the highways in good shape with
the exception of a few low places
where a great deal of mud has form
ed, but everything considered the

ONCE MORE TOUCHED
WITH A BAD CHECK
B. A. McElwain, the Jeweler, Gets
Victimized on Another Phoney
Check Late Yesterday.
From Tuesday's Daily.
Late yesterday afternoon while
the jewelry store of B. A. McElwain
was quite busy with a number of
customers, a young man approached
Mr. McElwain and asked to look at
some fountain pens and a few other
articles of jewelry, and picking out
a number of articles, the value of
which totaled $1H.50. he asked the
proprietor of the store if he would
cash a check for the amount of
S1S.50 as the gentleman needed a
small amount of change.
The owner of the store
modate the customer, took
one of his
own checks and wrote in
of the Plattsmouth State
which the check was drawn and the
amount and the gentleman signed
the name "E. Courtain" to the scrap
of paper and securing the purchases
and the $5 in change, departed on
A few moments after the depar
ture of the customer the conscience
of Mr. McElwain smote him as he
recalled an incident of a few months
ago when he had been made the
victim of a bad check, and he at
once hastened to a telephone and got
in touch with the Plattsmouth State
Bank and was informed that they
had no account with a gentleman of
the name of Courtain and that as
far as their bank was concerned the
check was bogus. -
A hurry up call was sent forth 13'
Mr. McElwain for the police and
Officer Alvin Jones hastened forth to
endeavor to locate the party who had
sprung the check, but without suc
cess, although the officer worked all
night in an effort to capture his
shops but had been recently released
from the service, and he has appar-
ently disappeared from this locality,
So far no trace of his whereabouts
has been foind and Mr. McElwain is
still holding .the check and is even
more wise than before to the evils of
J cashing checks for unknown parties.
