Miss C. M. Brings, assistant principal
of the High school, who tonight retires
from the Rrvk Island schools, which
she has served so faithfully, was treated
to a surprise this morning both happy
and novel. On opening her lunch basket
in -preparing r.o go to school she observed
mysterious package in the bottom of it
and at first jaid little attention to it,
thinking it wns an autograph album that
bad been handed either herself or
Miss Huntincton. also of the high school
corps, the two ladies having rooms at
Mrs. Hull's house on Twenty-third street.
On taking it out, however, she was as
tonisbed to find it was not an au
tograph album, and her cuiiositv be
ing aroused, she investigated further,
to find an elegant blue phish case
in which was inclosed an elegant gold
watch, on tho inner case of which was
ncraved an inscription which explained
jt all "From the Rock Island High school
1890. " Ti e surprise was oomplete.and
the manner i i which it had been perpe
trated flashed across Miss Briggs in an
instant. It was from the High school and
the task of presenting it had been en
trusted to Miss Huntington who adopted
the unique rxetbod outlined above. It is
suitable token of the love and esteem
in which Mms Briggs is held by her
school associates and pupils.

TO WED FRANCIS MURPHY.
Mr. Rebecca flaher, Foraaerly f
This City, t Marry tne ret Team
The Omaha and Council Bluffs papers
give considerable space to an approach
ing matrimonial event to which Rock Iss
land attaches much interest. It Is to the
effect that during the coming summer,
Mrs. Rebecca Fisher, daughter of Mr.
and Mrs. J. R. Johnston, of this city,
and who spent a larger portion of her
life here, but of recent years has resided
in Council Bluffs, is to become the wife
of Frances Murphy, the great temper
ance advocate. The Omaha Herald says
of the happy event:
Frances Murphy captured Omaha and
Council Bluffs, and now Council Bluffs
and Omaha Lave captured Mr. Murphy.
When Mr. Murphy said: "You can win
men by loving kindness and tender ap
preciation, but it is a difficult task to
drive men with a club," he was expres
sing his earnest convictions . For twen
ty years Frances Murphy has remained a
widower, and tbougn he has traveled in
portions of the world and mingled
with all classes of people, the tenderness
and love within him was not aroused for
any special woman. But several months
ago the star which has led Frances Mur
phy to all his successes, his triumphs and
his good luck twinkled over the city of
Council Bluffs, and thither the great
apostle of temperance followed. The
Murphy meetings in that city were of
exceptional interest. Everybody came
out to join in the good work. There
was plenty of cold water, but the prohi
bitionists drank the fluid instead
of trying to throw it on the good
cause. The Women's Christian Tem
perance union of Council Bluffs was
there in full force working with royal will
and at the bead of these splendid women
was the president, Mrs. Rebecca Fisher.
The meetings increased in interest and
Mrs, Fisber with her patriotic force did
much to make the meetings a success. But
Mrs. Fisher did more than aid in the cause
. president of the Women's Christian
Temperance union. She threw" her heart
and soul into the work. Her strong,
handsome face and winning ways drew
men to her and the tender appreciation
she manifested for the condition of drink
ing men led many to consent to sign the
pledge, and thus the work went on.
And from the pUtform Francis Murphy
marked the royal efforts of this splendid
woman. One could not but he attracted
to her violent efforts. His own heart in
Ibe work. Mr. Murphy was strangely
drawn to this new and earnest aid. Per
haps he himself could not ex plain Why he
felt more tender toward this col shore r
than he had ever felt concerning any
other, but evidently he did. Francis
Murphy's heart was always a flower gar
den, but during these meetings a new and
fragrant rose sprung up and around its
petals rrppt the tenderest emotions. Per
haps before lie knew it the man who
bad won so .many men by his eloquence
and his love was himself won and
captivated slowly but surely. The at-tTlimt-nt
seemed mutual, and nearer
and nearer tojrether came the two
hearts, which in one cause, at least, had
but a single thought. It was plain at
least to the two people most deeply in
terested that this was a case of true love.
It was during the first series nf meetings
held in Omaha that Francis Murphy for
mally laid bis heart at the f.-et of the
woman be had learned to love and es
teem. Perhaps the world will never know just
what form the great hearted Irishman
rdopted to make known the desires of his
heart; doubtless by that strange discern
ment in those whose affection is perfect,
their liesire hecame known without ex
pression. But at least it is true that Mrs.
Reberc Fisher accepted the band and
heart of Francis Murphy. It is true that
the weddir,g will take place before Sep
tember 1 and it is equal:? true that no
couple whose troth was ever plighted will
receive more cordial and sinc-re well
wishes and God speeds than Mr. and Mrs.
Mrs. Fisher is 38 years nf sge and has
lived in Council Bluffs for the last thir
teen years. A handsome, kind hearted
woman, Mrs. Fisher enjoys the love of
all the people of her Iowa home as well
as those of other sections who have the
good fortune to know her. Mr. Murphy
has won a real helpmate and bis charming
wife will accompany him and assist in
the temperance cause.
Am Alleged Elopraieat of,

There was a disturbance of a sensa
tional and romantic nature in a certain
neighborhood in the city last night over
the report that a married man a Second
avenue business man was about to elope
with a young girl who is the only com
fort of a recently widowed mother. The
man has been on such terms of intimate
friendship with the girl for some lime as
to attract attention, and last night he was
out walking with her when discovered by
the girl's mother and other relatives, who
set up a cry for the police and made it so
warm for the young Romeo that be fled,
being pursued several blocks by the in
furiated woman. An officer appeared
later on the scene and stayed at the house

return of Romeo, but Romeo came not.

bright and commendable one, and Mr.
