The renort comes in a roundabout way
that the marriage of Mr. Fred J.. Hill and
Miss Elisabeth Dufrene, both of Omaha,
took place at Reno, Nevada, last Wednes
day, June 10. Mr. Hill has been in dusi-
nesa here some time,, while Miss uuirene

Dufrene, her father being the leading archi
tect of earlier days. Miss Dufrene and her
brother left for a trip to California some
weeks ago and were followed by Mr. Hill
and later by Mrs. Dufrene. Although It
was known for some tlm that the young
people were engaged, the news of an away-
from-home wedding comes as a surprise.

later one day last week, when after a
novelty shower tendered his fiance by a
party of girl friends he waa called upon to

tion home. It happened that the bundles
were as ample In size as In variety, and as
with pockets bulging and arms piled high,
and she carrying a preserving kettle filled
with kitchen utensils, they walked frOm the
car to her home, they met an elderly ma
tron, a friend of his mothers. The lady
topped aa she recognized them and then
with astonishment depicted all over her
face, said: "Why, George, I thought the
wedding waa not to b until next Wednes
day!" : .
