Bride Meets Obstacles
In Finding Sabers'for
If you don't believe that the pano
plies of war have changed, then just
try to get four swords 1 Surely, that
should be easy, when we are at war
and two forts at our very doors, but
if you are a bride-to-be and you have
decided that your uniformed ushers
must have swords, then your troubles
have just begun.
Mrs. Irving Benolken, who was
Miss Lenore Williams just last week,
was a very busy girl for a week, or 10
days before the wedding. Was she
having her trousseau fitted? Or was
she deciding whether the bridal bou
quet should be white roses or pink?
These are the usual things that worry
a bride, but in this instance her mind
was full of gleaming blades and even
in her dreams she could hear clanking
" tabers. . , '
Of course, bur youthful warriors in
-blue whose training camp is in the
High school eamputf are the proud
possessors of these necessary weap
ons,, but they had buckled them on
several days before and left for inten
sive training at Valley. Colonel
Grant was approached and after
much hurrying hither and yon and
looking diligently, one sword was dis
covered, tucked away with some
relics of civil war days. Major Frith
also contributed one blade to the
wedding, but there were two more to

not have dreamed that she scoured
the town, that hers might be the very

f H, if only I could fly!" sighed
;V Princess Peggy, stretching
back comfortably on a warm sand hil
lock and gazing up dreamily into the
bfud' summer sky. There, high above
thf dunes, a swallow was gracefully
sailing-back and forth in long, un
dulating loops that sometimes carried
him out over Lake Michigan and then
far. back inland. Flying seemed so
easy for him, and such airy fun far
better , fun for i. hot June afternoon
than chasing a toy airplane up and
down the sandy slopes.
'Perhaps," mused Peggy, "if I were
a real, princess instead of just a prin
cess of dreams, as father calls me, I
might have a truly airplane that wou'
carry me high, high, high up there.
Or, if I had a fairy godmother she
might give me a pair of wings and
I'd Ay, fly, fly-"
"If-you want to fly, 111 help you,"
tinkled a sweet, tiny voice behind her.
Peggy sat up straight and whirled
around in surprise. Not a person was
in sight The hillock wasbare save
for her little airplane resting at her
feet and a pretty rosebush growing
against the bank. . . A
"Am I so beneath notice that you.
cannot see me?" went on the tinkling
voice with a merry little laugh. It
seemed to come straight from the
rosebush. Amazed, Peggy leaned for
ward. Yes; a rose, the most beauti
ful she had ever seen, with a bud
like the face of a blushing girl, was
nodding brightly at her and shaking
its long stem gayly over her bewilder
ment. - "Why, who are you?" gasped Peggy
In astonishment . " ; ,
' "Mel Why, I'm the Wishing Rose.
I bloom every June and if, while I am
fit bloom, a little girl comes along on
her birthday and makes a wish, I can
grant it provided she has some time
done a favor for me. This is your
birthday, isn't' it?"
1 "Yes. I'm 9 years old today," re-
uucu luc wuiiuerinv ullir uiti. . . .
"Then I'll give you a wish."
a "But what favor have I done for
you?" asked Peggy,
t "You saved my life!" was the sur
prising answer of the rose. "Last
week, before I bloomed, you kept your
brother Tom from tearing my bush up
by the roots. For that I give you four
wishes. There are four leaves on my
stem. Each is a wish. Pick them off.
When you want a wish, just eat one
of the leaves. But be sure that you
make, the last wish before , sundown
today, for at that, hour the power of
the leaves comes to an end.
, Half in doubt, Peggy picked the
leaves from the stem. Three of them
she stored away in the knitting bag
.in which she carried her lunch. The
fourth she held in her hand, looking
uncertainly at it
"You said you wanted to fly," spoke
up the Rose. "Eat the leaf, then wish
that you were tiny and that your air
plane would carry you where you
want to go."
' "Oh, thank youl Thank you!" cried
Peggy. She popped the leaf into her
mouth and , chewed it. It tasted like
perfumed candy. The effects came at
once. Peggy grew dizzy. The ground
seemed to rush up as if she were going
down in a swift elevator. Everything
around her suddenly grew to huge
size." The hillock was now as big as a
dune f the dune looked like a moun
tain; blades of grass were like stalks
of corn; the rosebush shot up to the
height of a tree; the airplane was as
large and powerful appearing as a
battleplane Peggy had seen at an
army training camp the week before.

First Wedding at Club. '
The first wedding ever held at the
picturesque Prettiest Mile club took
place Saturday evening. Miss Clara
Flinn, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Wil
liam H. Flinn, was the June bride, and
Mr. Nicholas Edgar Fain was the
bridegroom. The fireplace in the liv
ing room was banked with palms and
before this improvised altar the cere
mony took place. Rev. Titus Lowe
read the marriage lines.
The bride wore her traveling suit
and a wedding supper was served fol
lowing the ceremony, when covers
were laid for 12.
After a short wedding trio the
young couple will be at home on the
June flowers, pink and white peon
ies, formed the setting for a pretty
home wedding Saturday evening,
when the marriage of Miss Margaret
Van Duyne Merrill, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. George A. Merrill, to Mr.
Everett C. Stice, son of Mr. and Mrs.
A. J. Stice, took place at the home
of the bride's parents. Rev. C. E.
Cobbey read the marriage lines.
Preceding the ceremony Miss Beat
rice Walton played "At Dawning" and
then as the strains of the wedding
march floated through the rooms, the
little flower girl, Miss Helen Ericson,
came down the steps, looking a veri
table little fairy in her filmy gown of
organdy tied with bows of white tulle.
In her hand she carried a graceful
basket of marguerites, the handle tied
with a fluffy bow of white tulle.
The bride's sister, Mrs. G. LeRoy
Ericson, was next in the procession,
her gown of blue satin made on
By Daddy "The Giant of the Woods"
"Hurry, climb aboard!" twinkled
the Rose, smiling down at her. Peggy
obeyed, climbing into the seat of the
airplane. Instantly there was a loud
whir-r-r and the airplane shot for
ward. Before Peggy could say good
by to the Rose she found herself away
up in the air and climbing higher
Half frightened, Peggy grasped the
levers beside, the seat. The airplane
obeyed at once. Instead of going high
er it skimmed along in a straight line
Below was the town where Peggy
lived, looking now like a toy village.
Beyond it was a small lake and the
river winding down from the distant
hills. Peggy bent forward to get ' a
better look. Instantly tie airplane
dived toward the earth. In quick fear
she straightened back.. Promptly the
airplane righted hself and then soared
upward. She chanced to lean to one
side and the plane wheeled about She
leaned the Qther wav and the plane
circled back. Peggy quickly realized
that the machine was obeying her
every movement, riding easily, grace
fully and smoothly. At once full con
fidence came back to her.
"My goodness," she thought. "I
am really flying. I can make this- air
plane do anything I like."
With that she began to find the up-in-the-air
sensation delightful. Little
thrills of joy ran through her. She
felt aS light as thistledown, and in her
heart was an uncontrollable desire to
sing. Involuntarily she began to trill
a happy little song that she ma.de up
without thinking: . J
"Oh, what joy to be a bird;
If I should fall 'twould be absurd"
"I should say it would be absurd!"
