In tho programme of the Cass Co

The programme of exercises is a very

A Pleasant Social Evcat.
Merrily chimed the bells and hast
ening crowds gathered to . witness the
marriage at high noon to-day of two
of Plattsmouth's young people, who
have held prominent positions in the
young society of our city. The con
tracting parties were the Hon. It. B.
Windham, a prominent Attorney of
our city and member of our State Leg
islature and Mls3 Jennie C. Patterson,
daughter of Hon. Jas. M. Patterson,
The ceremony took place at the M.
E. Church Bev. G. W. DeLamatyr and
Bev. J. T. Baird officiating. The
church was very handsomely decora
ted with flowers, the work being su
pervised by our Florist, Mr. Moore
which insured iis tastefulness and
beauty, A number of friends showed
their good will and friendship by as
sisting him. Prominent amoag the
decorations was a horse shoe, emble
matic of prosperity and good fortune
to the happy pair.
Precisely at 13:30 the strains of
Mendelssohn's Wedding March pealed
from the organ drawn forth by the
skillful fingers of Miss Flora Wise, and
announced the approach of the wed
ding party, which comprised Messrs,
W. S. Wise and H. M. Bushnell, ushus,
Mr. E. H. Woolev and Miss I.illie
Wood, Mr. J. C. Watson and Miss Ollie
Jones, aud lastly the cynosure of all
eyee, Mr. It. B. Windham and Miss
Jennie Patterson, whom a few magic
words were soon to make one.
The bride's dress was a gros rain of
a pale shade of ashes of roses, made
princess, en train and trimmed with
satin and lace, a hat to match her
dress, natural flowers at her throat aud
white lace mitts. Miss Wood Wore a
pearl gray and Miss Jones a cream col
ored bunting trimmed with cream col
or and crimson ribbon ; natural flow
ers at theft throat and in their hair
So long as gentlemen will wear wed
ding suits made off the same piece it is
useless to describe them, but Miss Pat
terson looked so charming no one had
eyes for Mr. Windham's attire and
coujd only note the happiness beaming
from his face: The ceremony which
made them man and wife was quickly
over, the symbolic ring wa3 placed up
on her finger, and as the wedding
march again sounded and they retrac
ed their footstepslow n the aisle, which
but a moment before they had trod
with relations toward each other so en
tirely changed one could but think
how simple an I quickly wrought
are the Incidents which work such
wonderful alterations in our lives.
If the company assembled were any
criterion of the n umber of their friends
Mr. and Mrs. Windham will find theits
hard to count, and all, we know, unite
with the Herald in congratulations
and the best of wishes for their future
After a sumptuous dinner at the res
idence of the bride's parents, "at which
were assembled the relatives only, the
happy couple took the afternoon train
for Omaha, from whence they go via
the U. I'. to Colorado, for a few weeks
swjonrn among her delightful summer
Upon their roturn they will immedi
ately begin housekeeping, in the
home which Mr. Windham has been
for some weeks preparing for his bride.
A number of friends and relatives
of the bride and trrooin from a distance
were present, among which were Mr.
and Mrs. B. Windham, of Glen wood.

The editors of our Temperance
column have given a full account of
Mrs. Wittenray ers' lectures here, so we
need not add to their already good de
scription. We would only suggest
that our temperance people should
supplement the preaching of Mrs. W.
and other temperance lecturers with a
little better practice than that ef last
Sunday evening, when they deserted
her en mass right in the midst of her
lecture, for fear of a little cold water
in the shape of a storm which after all
never came. Don't be so scared, at a
little cold Water, good friends, even if
a dose of thunder and lightning is
added. Those arertL trials, the wilh
Btinding of which, shows your dtvo

Die Death Rate of
Our country is petting to be fearfully
alarming, tbe average of life being les
sened every year, without any reason
able cause, death resulting generally
from the most insignificant origin. At
this season of tbe year especially, a
cold is such n common thing that in
the hurry of everyday life we are apt
to overlook the dangers attending it
and often find too late that a Fever or
L.ung trouble has already set in.
Thousands loose their lives in thi3 way
every winter, while had Bosrhee's Ger
man Syrup been taken, a cure would
have resulted, and a large bill from
a doctor been avoided. For all diseas
