- From the Coleridge Blade we take
the following account of the mar

Cecil J. Schwers, which occurred last
week at Shadeland Stock farm, home
of the bride's parents, Mr. and Mrs.
J. L. Young, near Coleridge:
"The marriage of Miss Geraldine
Young, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J.
L. Young and Cecil J. Schwers, son
of Mr. and Mrs. John Schwers, took
place on Tuesday the 20th, at 11
o'clock at the home of the parents of
the bride, the Rev. J. C. Christie,
pastor of the Presbyterian church, of
ficiating. The beautiful impressive
ring service was used and the bride
and groom were unattended.
"The bride was gowned in a dark
blue tailored suit, with embroidered
blouse and wore a corsage bouquet
of Mrs. Ward's roses.
"Mrs. Schwers is a charming and
accomplished young lady and is a.
great favorite and highly esteemed
by many friends in Cedar county. She
graduated from the Coleridge High
school In 1917. Then she went to
the State Normal at Wayne, where
she graduated in 1919, after which
she taught very successfully for a
number of years in the Laurel High
"Mr. Schwers is a young man of
sterling qualities and worth. He at
tended a business college at Sioux
City for some time and served in
the World war in France for a time,
and since that time he has been a
progressive and successful farmer.
Both of them are interested in church
work. Mrs. Schwers has been active
in Christian Endeavor and Sunday
school work in the Logan View Pres
byterian church and has been a
great help in the music of the
church. Mr. Schwers has also been
active in the church and Sunday
rchool work. He is a ruling elder
in thi3 church and has a host of
friends who wish him success in
"Only immediate relatives were
present. Autumn flowers, ferns and
potted plants were effectively used
in the decorations. After the young
people had received congratulations
of their friends, the company was
invited to the beautifully decorated
dining room, where a delicious four
course wedding dinner was served.
"The presents were numerous, use
ful and beautiful. The young couple
have gone on their honeymoon to
points of interest in Colorado and the
coast and upon their return they will
be at home at Hartington to their
many friends after November 1st.
They have the hearty congratulations
and best wishes of many friends in

leggingGet 6 Rakeoffs on
Same Case of Whiskey
Chicago, Sept. 27. A system thru
which Chicago policemen were alleg
ed to have obtained as many as half
a dozen rakeoffs on the same case of
whiskey was revealed today in the
government's investigation of the po
lice department, said by Chief of Po
lice Charles Fitzmorris to contain
2,500 bootleggers, in a membership
of 5,000. The request of the chief
that the federal authorities help him
clean house was placed before the
federal grand Jury with a score of
witnesses, most of them policemen,
One witness, according to officials,
explained the system. Members of
the police force organized In bands,
he said, would obtain information as
to shipments of .whiskey to Chicago
and then, in uniform, would rob the
cars under the pretense that they
were confiscating liquor.
The whiskey was then sold at
fairly cheap bootlegging prices.
When the liquor was delivtreu. how
ever, a policeman always appeared
and demanded a substantial amount
from the recipient for protection.
After the sum had been paid, other
policemen wuld raid the place and
after collecting another fee. would
"confiscate" the liquor, resell it and
repeat the process sometimes a half
dozen times before turning the
whiskey over to a favored saloon
keeper for sale at high prices.
