Never did St. Paul's Methodist Episcopal church present a moro
beautiful appearance than on Wednesday evening when Miss
Rachel Brock, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. N. C. Brock, was united in
marriage to Mr. George Woods. The chancel was transformed into
a bower of beauty, being lavishly decorated with smilax and pinks
and white carnations, and the church was crowded with people
when tho bridal party entered promptly at six o'clock. The ushers,
Mr. C. P. A. Clough, Mr. John T. Dorgan, Mr. Will Clark, Mr. Low
Marshall and Mr. Will Johnson led tho way down tho aisle while
Miss Rice played tho "Lohengrin" wedding march. Then followed
three beautiful girls, Miss Fan Sheldon Hawley, Miss Mae Burr and
Miss Jcanetto Wilson. They were attired in pale pink silks and
carried pinks and white carnations. Miss Florence Rinehart, of
Lafayette, Ind., preceded tho bride attired in pink brocade Bilk and
carrying white roses. She made a strikingly pretty maid of honor.
Mi6s Brock entered on the arm of her father attired in an elegant
gown of duchess satin trimmed with pearls. Her veil was caught
with a diamond ornament tho gift of tho groom and she carried
lilies of the valley. She was indeed a handsome bride and called
forth many exclamations of admiration. Mr. Woods entered the
west aisle accompanied by his best man, Mr. Mattson Baldwin and
met his bride at tho altar where Rev. C. 0. Lasby performed the
very impressive marriage ceremony of tho Methodist church, while
Miss Rice rendered "Call Mo Thine Own." Immediately after tho
ceremony the bridal party proceeded to the home of tho bride's
parents at 511 north Tenth street where a luncheon was partaken of
by the immediate relatives and friends. The parlor was beautifully
decorated with American beauties and tilled with presents from the
many friends of tho contracting parties while in the dining room
white and pink carnations prevailed. Miss Brock is tho only
daughter of Mr. and Mrs. N. C. Brock. She is distinctively a Lin
coln girl having grown up in this city and is extremely popular with
all who know her. Mr. Woods has also grown from childhood in
Lincoln. Ho is a member of the firm of Woods Bros., real estate
men, and is a young man of splendid business ability. He is also

The Ladies' Matinee Musicale is steadily increasing in popularity.
The meetings are faithful! attended by the active members and on
last Monday there were present several associate members, who
have paid the annual fee and attend tho meetings of the society for
the pleasure of listening to the programs. Tho ladies would be glad
to have many more such members, as well as those who take active
part in the work of the musicale. Their presence acts as a stimu
lant to the ambition of the performers, adds much to the social
enjoyment of the meetings, and lastly furnishes a substantial prop
by reason of the fees thus contributed. There are doubtless num
bers of ladies in the community fond of music, perhaps indeed, pro
ficient in some branch of it, who lack time to take active part in
such a club, but who would enjoy attending the matinee meetings
were it generally understood that there is opportunity for them to
do so as associate members of the society.

A friend of mine in Omaha has a daughter and that daughter
has, among other girlish trinkets, a sweetheart, who is rendered
doubly dear to her by the fact that her parents have forbidden her
to see him. He is, to bo sure, a very commonplace person, but no
girl can resist a man her parents have forbidden her to see, you know.
This particular girl is in Washington now for safo keeping, in a
private school, where incoming and outgoing letters are read by a
stern faced teacher. I went to see her tho other day, juBt after tho
mail was in. She had received a letter from a school girl friend in
Omaha and there wasn't a noun or a pronoun of the masculine
gender in the whole of it.
The girl read it demurly and' showed it to me. Then we went to
her room. The door was no sooner closed than she ilew to her
curling tongs, heated them, held them close to the written sheet
and read with delight the yellow letters in a masculine hand which
appeared between the lines and faded away again as soon as tho
The moral of this is that love will find a way, and so long as tho
chloride of copper is to bo had I advise every keeper of a girl's
school to toast all letters well before she delivers them.
A BREEZY TIME.
