Dan Cupid Has Hard

Pair, but Succeeds
It took several secret service agents of
the United States government, the ma
chinery of the Department of Justice, the
police of St. Joseph and other cities and
finally United States Heputy Marshal
Haze and Justice of the Peace Leeder ot
Omaha to help win Cupid In an excep
tionally difficult marriage. But th little
lad with the arrows was victorious
Dan was engaged in his favorite pas
time of shooting arrows Into hearts over
In fort Tdgc, la., some time ago. Ho
pierced the heart of Miss Agnes Doyle,
and tlie corresponding arrow hs shot Into
the manly bosom of Archie Armstrong.
The young god hadn't Inquired about
the religious beliefs of the pair, lie just
thought they were suitable for each
Next appeared stern parents. "This
marriage can never, never be," said stern
Cupid is used to this sort of trouble.
First thing stern parents knew their
dr.ughter had disappeared and Arms'.roiig
had also gone.
Then the government was called en and
its thousands of arms reached ou. and
located the pair. Finally Armstrong was
arrested in St. Joseph, and technically
charged with violation of the Mann act.
However, stern parents, seeing there
was no other way, that Dan Cup'd had
struck the hearts fair and square with
bis arrows, capitulated, and they were
married by the j. p.. and, let us hope,
will "ll happily ever after."
