of two rooms, separated by a thin plank

struck ber three blows, ens on the back
of the head and two on toe neck,

wbo keeps t saloon and board In bouse in

and won by her bar-tender. Tbe marriage
ceremony was set tor Tuesday evenlnir, and
all the arrangements were arranged
therefor. The bar-tender pur
chased a suit of the finest broadcloth, bad
himself duly arranged by a barber, aid
tben about 7 o'clock that evening repaired
to A Jtvtry stable and tugagtd tbe let team
and finest carriage in tbe concern. Then
he was driven to tbe home of tbe widow
whom be expected to toon become his
wife, tnd tilttbted with all the dignity that
t bar-tender oan assume on suoh an occa

out bis bride to be driven to the oburch,
where they were to be united for life and
whire be was to be changed
from ! a bar-tender to a
saloon proprietor. But tbe widow
bad an able-bodied son who looked with

followed after t short distance, continually
ordering the driver to move his rig along

Referring to tbe char jo thtt heretofore the

At the quarterly meeting of tbe (Jireotors,
