To keep the wolf from your door

Had a Tussle with the Storm
The storm which did so much
damage along "O" street last Friday
evening also caught the family of
Frank Mrasek and Herman Richter,
as they were returning from the
state fair. They had sought to out
run the storm, but were not able,
and had gotten about three miles
from Elm wood at the home of Fred
Hall, when the storm struck. They
were not able to get out of the auto,
and ran it alongside of a garage
which was careened to one side, and
they were all afraid it would blow
over on them. When the fury of the
storm had in a manner abated Mr.
Mrasek ran to the house and finding
no one in the house, opened the door
and securing the family went and
remained until the family came home
some three hours later from the fair,
where they had been also. They pre
vailed upon Mr. Mrasek and company
to remain. It is well that they did.
for otherwise they would have ran
into a stream of water many feet
deep and have been swept away.
Frank says frankly that he saw in
the storm something to be afraid of.

Analysis of this viscous liquid

The sow's ear being chiefly gristle and

attending the graduate school of
Theology at Edinburgh, Scotland.
Here is the account:
"The west side U. P. church was
the scene at noon today of one of the
prettiest weddings of the season,
when the Rev. J. Dales Buchanan
claimed Miss Helen Barr Huey, the
daughter of Rev. and Mrs. S. G.
Huey, as his wife. Preceding the
ceremony Miss Lurlene Sneath play
ed a selection on the harp. At twelve,
to the strains of the Lohengrin Bri
dal chorus, the bridal party entered
the church. First in the wedding
party were the ushers, Gordon Marsh
and Homer Maxwell, of Cannons
burg. Pa. Following the ushers came
the two bridesmaids, Mrs. Leonard
Killey and Miss Ruth Huey. sister of
the bride and Miss Grace Huey, who
was her sister's maid of honor. The
flower girls were Margaret Richard
son and Ruth Lukens. The Rev. J.
Dales Buchanan and his brother,
Bruce Buchanan, . with the bride's
father. Rev. Huey, who performed
the ceremony, met the others' of the
bridal party at the altar.
"The bride's dress was of white
ivory satin with over drape of burnt
out lape and she carried a boquet of
white brides roses and snap dragons.
The church was beautifully but simp
ly decorated for the occasion.
"Immediately after the ceremony,
the wedding party went to the home
of the bride's parents, where a re
ception for relatives and close friends
was held. The house was simply,
but artistically decorated with the
pink and orchid asters. After the
reception a three-course wedding
breakfast was served by the friends
of the bride.
"Both Mr. and Mrs. Buchanan are
well known in college circles. Mrs.
Buchanan is a graduate of Central
H. S. in St. Louis, with the class of
1914. She was a student of music at
Cora th's conservatory in St. Louis,

Over that Hot Stove, Too!
Why pay three dollars and scventy-hve cents for
that bushel of peaches, work over the boiling hot stove
and get fifteen quart cans of the fruit, then pay for
the sugar, and furnish the container, which makes the
fruit alone not counting the can cost you 26 cents each.
When you can purchase the peaches and the finest

cents each. Did you ever stop to figure the matter out.
We would be pleased to take your order for the
fruit already canned, and save you the hard hot work.
