The bride went to the altar, halt
bidden by roses, asparagus ferns
and palms, with her brother, George
J. Gould, who gave her in marriage.
An orchestra, screened by masses of
flowers in the music room, played
Lohengrin's Wedding March, while
Rev. Daniel D. Russell, pastor of the
Irvington Presbyterian church, per
formed the ceremony. Helen and
Dorothy Gould, nieces of Miss
Gould, acted as flower girls and
were her only attendants. Louis J.
! Shepard, brother of the bridegroom,
was best man.
I The couple stood during the cere
I mony beneath a bower of American
Beauty roses, with festoons of gray
white asparagus reaching almost to
tie ground. The bride carried a
modest bouquet of lilies of the val
le}, her favorite flower.
A rope of exquisite pearls, said
once to have adorned Empress Jose
phine, and a pear-shaped diamond
pendant, the latter the bridegroom's
gift, were the only jewelry worn by
the bride. The pearls were a be
quest from Miss Gould's mother.
The wedding gown was of duch
esse ivory satin, with a sweeping
train three and a half yards long,
trimmed with duchess and rose point
lace and with seed pearl embroid
ery. The lace and voil were gifts
from the Duchess de Tallyrand, for
merly Miss Anna Gould, the bride's
sister. The veli was held with a
spray of orange blossoms and swept
In flowing lines to the end of the
long train. Orange blossoms also
caught up the lace at the sides of
the skirt. The bride's slippers cor

OssiniDg, N. Y., Jan. 21.-Tho ac

The weight in question showed how
drugs like opium, morphine, cocaine,
in powder form, and other things get
to the convicts. The discovery will
be of benefit to the wardens of every
other prison of the State and to keep

New York. It has been shipped in

that, from Investigations already ad

is concerned one woman has bern

large stock of drugged postals on

friends of men in prison who must
No one thought anything of lt when
the postal card craze manifested it

well abreast of the times.
Some of the cards were movable,

morning a week or more ago contain
ed several score o? these cards and
all were taken to the proper official
to be examined, as ls the rule. The
man sat at his desk, the cards before
him. In some way or other, either
a weight or a book dropped on one
of the largest post cards In such a
manner that the edge of it struck on
the edge of the embossing, cutting a
hole. To the surprise of the man
at the desk, a tiny speck of white
dropped before him. He picked lt
up. It looked like tho segment of a
small morphine pill. He took it to
the prison physician and such. It
proved to be. ^

and the hollow space of It wae found
to be filled with more morphine pills,

An examination of every other

FIFTY PERSONS ARE BURIED
When Texas Store Collapses During
a Bargain Sale.
McKinney, Texas, Jan. 23.-About
fifty persons, many of them women
and girl shoppers, were caught in the
collapse here this afternoon of the
Cheeves Brothers' department store,
occupying two floors of a three-story
brick building. The ruins caught
fire, burning for an hour, suffocating
or burning, outright victims who had
not been crushed to death.
Six hours after the collapse seven
dead and thirteen injured had been
taken from the smoking pile, and
hopes of finding any more allvo were
dwindling. Vernie Graves, t'.e only
one known to get out unhurt ?vhen
.the walls fell, said there were at
least fifty in the building. An ad
joining building fell without Injur
ing any one.
The Dead and Injured.
Tho known dead are: Rosa
Welch, Miss Katie Milligan, Miss
Bessie Wade, Russell Height (four
years old), N. R. Preley, clerk; Mrs.
Mary Stiff, clerk; Miss Eva Searcy,
cler^. The last two died after being
removed fro,m the wrecked building.
Seriously injured:' Miss Annie Cur

Two of the dead were taken from
tho debris alive, but died within an
hour at a sanitarium. One of these,
Mrs. Mary Stiff, pleaded with the
firemen working In the tangled mass
above her to kill her, as the fire was
rapidly reaching her. She was
brought out barely alive.

Very few people go through life

strong cathartics, salt mineral waters,

true, but the good effect ls soon lost,
and the more one takes of them the
less effective they become.

using a scientific remedy like Dr.
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin. It does not
hide behind a high sounding name,
but lt ls what it is represented to
