Ihn Hiilmip Fob 8 Wilhelmina tho
first ruling unoon of Holland vested
day married Duke Henry of
who bucolics Irlnee
Uclnrlch of tho Netherlands The mar
riage was a series of brilliantly colored
pictures but tho severe simplicity of
4he Dutch form of marriage which
iwos followed to the letter In the civil
contract before the minister of Justice
Dr 1 W A Cort Van Dor Linden
find in the old fashioned religious
service In Oroote Kerk gnve It a demo
cratic spirit
A happier surrounding no bride ever
bad The weather was cold crisp and
inspiriting The marriage was a huge
family affair All Holland that could
came to The Hague to participate
IThose who stayed ut their homes in
other cities celebrated with parades
decorations and banquets
Never was seen u more beautiful and
happy wedding The popular belief
is that it Is a love match like that of
Victoria and Albert and this gives a
romantic coloring to the event which
Is generally lacking In royal marriages
The ceremonies were the same sim
ple and unrltuallstlc rites of the He
forincd church by which the humblest
of Queen WUhelmlnns subjects aro
married The venerable pastor admin
istered to the bride and gfoom a cau
tion that their high positions would not
shield them from the common suffer
ings and sorrow of humanity
Queen Wilhelmina made a very win
ning and human bride She blushed
and became confused over the cere
monial with the ring as all brides
ore supposed to do while her happi
ness and pride over tho enthusiasm of
her people were plainly deeper than u
anere matter of form
The scone as the royal couple
stood with clasped hands before the
chaplain in a circle of brilliantly ar
rayed personages Including their rela
tives and people composing the highest
families of Holland and the neighbor
ing German principalities was won
derfully gorgeous the masses of varie
gated coloring rendering more effec
tive the blue gold and white banked
Sip against the walls of the church
1 Last night the populace was like a
multitude of happy children Thou
sands swarmed through the principal
etreets which were nearly impassable
Mowing horns singing the national
hymn following the bands smashing
liats and lanterns Aged housewives
with their husbands from the prov
inces joined hands with stylish city
folks and danced to the music of
street organs There was considerable
mild hilarity Inspired by wine but no
offensive drunkenness

The city has no city ordlnnnce
covering the destruction of personal
property but under the laws of Kau

proven to bo personal property
The city counselor ami an attorney
employed to prosecute Mrs Nation In
the state courts had he continued
sustained his view that she could not
be legally prosecuted by the city and
be therefore unnounccd the dismissal
of the case
Mrs Nation who was sitting at a
table in front of tho police judges
desk cried Amen thank vou Mr
Gregg 1 ulwuys said you had too good
a face to be on the side of sin
Then rising in her seat and turning
about so she could face the women
who had crowded the court room
Mrs Nation began to sing Praise
God from Whom all Blessings Flow
Her followers took up the strain and
the court room was temporarily
turned into a praise meeting

I heard those noes suld Mrs Na

object to my talking But then dont
I know that those noes come from the
liquor traffic
A storm of laughter swept over the
