Joy Seems to Reign Supreme
Spring is a happy time and with
the family of L. LS. Gorthey. south of
town, the occasion of the arrival of
their youngest daughter is indeed a
very happy event and as she has de
clared her intention of remaining for
an extended visit, the t'ojks are ov
erjoyed. The proud father cannot
retrain from a kindly mile and a
friend's greeting, if he would try,
and he does not wish to be otherwise
than on the best of terms with all.
The happy mother is feeling pretty
wt H pleased by the coming of the
daughter, and grandma "Tuck" Van
de.burg. is not having the rheuma
tism near as bad as formerly, either.

ville they were entertained for sup- j
per at the home of the groom's broth- ;
er-in-law and sister, Mr. and Mrs. M. '
L. Williams, southwest of town, !
where later in the evening they re-

popularity of the happy con- j
the community. i
bride is a daughter of Jacob ;
one of the pioneer citizens ;
of Louisville and is highly respected
in the community. She has a twin
sitter, Miss Nellie Keiser. For sev
eral months the bride has been tak
ing a training course for nurses and
has been making splendid progress,
but when a determined bachelor like
Fred Shelhorn starts out to win a
fair bride, business careers go a glim
mering. The groom is a son of Mrs. Anna
Shelhorn and is a young man of high
character and is known to be upright
and honorable and fully deserving
of a good wife. The young couple
are popular in their homo town and
have a host of friends who join the
Courier in wishing them a long and
happy wedded life together. Mr.
Shelhorn is farming with his brother,
John Shelhorn on the Ernest Pautsch
farm and for the present the bride
and groom will reside with Mr. and
Mrs. John Shelhorn. Louisville
We are carrying a full line of farm machinery and
implements, both horse drawn and power propelled.
You had better see us NOW about any machinery you
may have that is in need of repairs, and thus be assur
ed of having it in working condition when you need
it. Delays in the busy season are costly.
Spring is about here with iis heavy quota of farm
work to be done and it is highly imperative the;:, you
look after the repair work right away. To those in
need of new implements we ire in a position to quote
the most conservative prices possible.

The pupils i;f the seventh grade
have been composing some very

work, which will be required on the

The pupils of the grammar room
have organized themselves in work
ing force for the purpose of mak
ing the school more interesting in
gathering items of interest in the
school. They elected Miss Hildc
grade Baumgartner as editor, while
Meredith Weddell and Henrietta
Baur were selected as writers of
rhymes. The eighth grade Feelcted
Flovd Hite as reporter, and the sev
enth selected Carl Baumgartner.
Miss Hildegrade Baumgartner, the
editor, has written a very good trea
tice on the progress of the school,
covering the progress and telling of
the obstacles in the way of progress
and expressing hopes that a new
building might be had some time.
Miss Alma Scheel contributed two
very good stories and true to life.
Carl Baumgartner gives a good de
scription of "school days". Huth
Bauer gives an account of dream,
while Marval Amgwert writes a poem
on "Lilly Time" showing much
study. The reporters have made
very good reports of the school, while
the numerous rhymer, Bryan McDon
