Meeting- in the Elevator Beg-lns Friend

Engagement, the Ceremony Being Per.
formed at St, Charles, Mo. Couple
Given B1k Surprise.
Harrv W. Lafifer, the well known
si"n writer, left Rock Island about two
year, ago to take a responsible position
in Crawford's department store in St.
Louis. The following from the ot.
Louis Post-Dispatch of Thursday tells
"Harrv W. Lafifer, advertising ticket
writer for D. Crawford & Co.', planned
a surprise ednesdav for his fellow
employes in the way of an elopement
to St. Charles with Mi-s Josephine
Gillinswater, of 1200 Madison street.
But his secret was poorly kept, and
when he reported for duty Thursday
his astonishment was greater than
that which he had honed to cause his
'His appearance on the fifth llaor.
where he is employed, was the signal
for an outburst of cbeers tnat caused
the knowing look on his face to give
wav to an expression of alarm. A
hundred hands were extended to him
for congratulatory shakes, and his
arm was sore before he had passed
through the ordeal. He feigned ig
norance of what his friends were
about and asked for explanations
They laughed at him.
"He was not easily to be beaten out
of the pleasure of surprising tnetn,
and tried bard to mislead them
into believing they had been misin
formed. But when he entered his of
fice he saw that further denial was
useless. His little working room had
so much drapery and decoration about
it that he was hardly alue to turn in
it. Flags, palms aud flowers occupied
all available space. Upon the walls
hung many cards of congratulations.
"Some of these cards convinced
him that the persons who hung them
there knew what they were about, for
they bore accurate accounts of his
wedding and pictured him as he
thought of the surprise he would give
his friends upon the announcement of
bis marriage. He immediately con
fessed, ordered up 'something, re
ceived more congratulations aud the
incident was closed.
Love at Firt Sight.
"The marriage is the sequel to a
courtship that began on the day the
bride became au employe in one of
Crawford's departments. That was
just one year ago. She and Lafifer
met in the "elevator and immediately
became friends. He called at her
home several times and then they
were more than friends, lint they
kep1; their engagement a secret, not
telling even their parents of it. Miss
Gillingwater resigned her position a
few weeks ago. She told her friends
she wanted to rest awhile, and did
not give a hint of her real purpose.
"It was their intention from the first
to elope and that was the cause of all
their secrecy. The day was set for
Wednesday and thev did not think
anybody but themselves knew of their
plan. But somebody aid. une ot
the employes in the store overheard
them plotting and carried the news to
the other employes. They immedi
ately schemed to give Laffer the sur
prise he had arranged lor tnem.
'it is on me, saia Laner, inura
rtay. ! had hoped that I would give
everybody in this store a big surprise,
but 1 was eviuenny not cautious
enoujrh. I was married at St. Charles
Wednesday afternoon. We held our
enfajjement from our parents until
the hour we started to St. Charles.
Then we told them. They were as
tonished, but forgave us readily. We
have rented a Hat and furnished it
and will be at home to our friends in
a few days.' "

sure it is a good one. It may seem odd that we advise that, as it
would seem to be in our favor to sell you another Range, and
thus make more profit.

It certainly would not, as, if the first was not a success, you would
look elsewhere for the second. We sell good goods at fair prices,
