How the girl had created conster
nation in the church on this Sabbath
morning in March -by leaving the'
choir loft where she was singing and
throwing herself before the altar- was
told by the Rev. Dr. O. D. BalUly
of Kountze Memorial church.
"Never before in my twenty-one
years of service in the church has a
similar act been performed," said Dr.
Baltzly. "After the-offering had been
taken and while the consecratory
hymn .was being sung she rushed from
her place with the choir, and pros
trated herself before me. Ever since
that time she has imagined that while
she knelt there with bbwed head I
solemnized. the ceremony that made
her the wife of Emil Conrad. I com
manded her to arise am return to her'
place, but her actions so upset me that
it was with difficulty that I was able
to offer the morning prayer. '

"On several occasions after this
scent she called me on the telephone
and announced that her name was
Mrs. Emil Conrad. ' When I asked
when, she was married she replied:
'Why" don't' you remember marrying
us. You performed the ceremony and
it is now your duty to see that Mr.
Conrad support me."- ' f
The Rev. C. Franklin Koch, as
sociate pastor' of Kountze Memorial
church corroborated the' testimony of
Dr. Baltzly and added that the girl
pad later falsely, accused the pastor of
circulating unsatory stories regard
