Dave Wilkinson of David City was
recently appointed justice of tbe peace
to till vacancy. He performed bis first
marriage ceremony tbe other day, at
least be thought he did. The contract
ing parties were Germans. Tbe groom,
who wanted to secure a license, was not
very familiar with the English languge.
Instead of going to the court bouse to
secure a license to wed. tbe prospective
husband wandered into the city clerk's
office, and after attempting to make him
self understood, the clerk concluded
that the caller wanted to pay the tax on
a dog, and made out a receipt for $2.00
and banded the-German a brass tag to
attach to tbe dog's collar. Then the
man got bis bride and called on Judge
Wilkinson to have the ceremony per
formed. Dave didn't read tbe license
at the time, but supposed it was a per
mit to marry mnde out in tbe usual
form, and proceeded witb tbe ceremony.
Wben tbe affair was over, tbe groom
handed Dave the, brass tag and he
slipped it into his pocket, confident that
it; was a ten-dollar gold piece. About
ten o'clock in the evening Dave dropped
into a refreshment emporium and or
dered a schooner of beer and a limbur
ger sandwich, tendering the dog tag in
payment for the same. But the barten
der politely informed the ex-Genoite
that brass tags were not a legal tender
at that bar. Then something seemed to
strike Dave that be had been buncoed,
and be examined tbe license, to find it
only a receipt for a dog tax. Hurrying
to tbe hotel where the couple were stop
ping, Dave rushed to their room, and
pounding on the door, yelled: "Get up!
Get up! "You're not married! You
