Like an ancient gentleman , of
whom we read in Holy Writ , your
correspondent was wandering to
and fro up and dow& in the earthen
on last Wednesday , June 29th ,
1910. From a- hilltop near
McKinley postoffice his eye light
ed on a curious scene , Joe
Hacfele's house surrounded by
horses and buggies , seemingly
without number and decorated on
the south side by a big red tour
ing car. Of course the corre
spondent of this invaluable journ
al drew nigh. Inquiry brought
out the fact that a high noon
wedding was about to be cele
brated , and the delicious odors
from Mrs. Ilaefele's kitchen
spoke of so many good things to
follow that "ye scribe" could not
resist the temptation to stay and
jot uown tuc toiiowing :
The fortunate young man was
Jacob Koch , a prosperous young
farmer of Merua , and the pretty
little bride was Miss Elizabeth
Grace Haefcle , daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Joseph Haefele. The
attendants were Miss Carrie Koch
snd Clayton Yohn. Miss Bertha
Barrett of Broken Bow played
the beautiful wedding march ,
and Rev. C. P. Netherly of Cal-
laway tied the golden knot.
The features of especial inter
est in connection with this happy
event -might be summed up as
follows : It was the request of
the interested young people that
not only the ring ceremony be
used but that the solemn , splend
id and elaborate Episcopal form
be followed. This grand ritual
is used by all ministers upon re
quest and is one of the , longest
dnd most beautiful wedding
ceremonials known to the Prot
The bride was given away by
her father in a very neat little
speech. In point of attendance
this was one of the largest wed
dings in the county this year ,
there being ninety-six guests
counted at the great wedding
banquet that followed the nup
tials. With the exception of
three 01 four families these
guests were all related. It being
in fact , a kind of family reunion.
The dinner was followed by a
great ball game , participated in
by nearly all the gentlemen pres
ent. In this exciting game , the
lion , Joseph Ilaefele distinguish
ed himself by stopping a level
with his mouth. This , of course
put that useful and active mem
ber of Joe's anatomy out of com
mission for a few minutes. A
thing which the oldest inhabit
ants say never happened before.
The happy young people re
ceived many useful and beautiful
presents. They will be at home

The 4th was an ideal day.
The heat was not uxcessive , a
cool breeze all day. The rain
Saturday afternoon previous had
dried off sufficiently so the roads
were not bad and there was no
dust on the streets.
People began to arrive early in
the morning and by ten o'clock
the city was crowded with
people. Numbering from 5000
to 10,000. Some say it was the
largest crowd ever gathered in
Broken Bow. "No wonder" re

Broken Bow advertised it liber
The program as advertised
was carried out to the letter.
But the people were too many
and too busy for all of them to

It was a picnic occasion.
Many brought their lunch bas

hour squads of people by locali
