For sorno days past the bold auto

sheriff of Groeley , Col , , hai boon noted
from tHe Paxton register , but the
owner will now return to his own
jurisdiction for awhile , his business in
these purls having been completed
yesterday by the arrest in Uiii city ol
a man named Arthur E. Price , who it
charged with horse stealing.
The details of the affair , as obtained
from the cfiiiors last night , were quite
interesting. Price was formerly u
resident of Grcelcy , und cjirly in No
vember hired a horse of a livery stable
man thoto named Wiight. Ho was to

worth $80 or $100 , for several dajs ,

The hall waa tastefully adorned In

The nuptial mass In the Catholic
church is among the most solemn and
impressive of the services in hei
ritual. In It nre Incorporated the
nuptial benedictions in full , which the
church pronounces upon her children
when entering the married state. In
deed , It la only In the nuptial rnasi
that those benedictions are bestowed
in their entirety , In other marriage
ceremonies they being curtailed ol
their complete and rounded proper
tlons. The benuons are road by the
priest facing the people , and from the
missal held by the aoolyto for that pur

Features nf the occasion wcro attended

Tno mass over , the party returned
to the Oroighton house , whither a
number of friends repaired to attend
the reception , which commenced at 10
o'clock. At 11 ft'cloek the party ,
about forty Invited guests , partook of
the bridal breakfast , served in most
exquisite style by Mr. Donovan , the
proprietor of the Crelghton. This
gentleman would seem to have made
up his mind to excel even his well
known ability in getting up appetizing
moiaolfl. His thanksgiving and Christ
mas and Now Year's dinnerohavo been
the delitjht.as they also have been the
marvel , of his guests. The break last
yesterday was beyond a doubt the
greatest of Mr. Donovan's achieve
ments and testified in no uncertain
manner the esteem In which ho hold his
wedded niece. The bill of fare , espe
cially printed f jr the occasion on toned
paper of unique design and appropri
ately and tichly described , contained
ninety features , both of substantial and
delicasiec , that would have delighted
the moat faitlducua of epicures.
A host of friends called during the
day and extended hearty greetings to
wedded pair. In the evening at C:30 :
o'clock Mr. and Mrs , O'Connor started
on a tour to the south , to bo absent
"or n few wtekc , whither hearty good
wishes have attended them.
The presents made the happy couple
wore both numerous and magnificent ,

Brilliant Masquerade by the
The great night of all the year for
masquerades , that of the annual ball
of the Omaha Miunnorchor , was cele
brated tlili year with more than usual
Both Turner and Metz halls were
thrown wide open for the occasion
and a baud stationed lu each to fur
nish music for the dancers , the Musi
cal Union orchestra being stationed in
Turner hall , and the Bohemian band
in Metz'a hall.
The attendance was unusually large
nnd the number of nueqncrs only ex
celled by the variety and eleganca of
their costumes , which were 111110
costly , unique ncd beautiful than have
over appeared at any previous occasion
of thu kind. Many cf the caulumca
deserve especial mention had the
names of the wo&rera been obtainable

form of plug hats and rod
gourds aa clubu , vrhilo the
mrst potent gocoralleeioio were a dreas
suit of burlaps with blue silk facing ,
and was otherwise gorgeously attired ,
"The light of the harem" was the
most noticeable fcmalo character im
personated and was immense.
A popular Dodge street news
dealer made several mashes disguised
as a middle-aged widow lady , and was
seriously alarmed by the persistent at
tention of one of his admirers.
The floor managers were brilliant in
their Turkish costumes , and the "frog
chorus" was an attractive feature oi
the preliminaries to thooponing of the
ball. From 10 o'clock until daylight
the dancing was kept up without in
termission , and the loading society
beaux whirled in the mazy waltz with
partners whoeo acquaintance would
have bsen acurnnd by others
who previous to midnight had
been locked in the earno embrace at H
more celoct gathering. "Tho girls , '
who formed a largo portion of the at
tendance , were , however , as decorous
as their sisters in high lifo , and it waa
not until early morning thit the car
nival becntno boisterous , Everything
passed c IT pleasantly and quietly , and
at 4 o'clock the B jhemlau band gave
a street fcorenade , the dancers dis
persed and the lights wont ont on the
latest festivitien of the season , the
morning having ulreody como in with
Lent and its requirements.
