The Galena Gazette contain the fol
lowing account of a happy event, in
which a former Rock Island young lad;
was the bride:
Tho nuptials of J. J. Reagan and Miss
Lizzie Gmnane were celebrated at Bt.
Michael's church Thursday evening, an
assemblage of several hundred befog
present. The bridegroom is a prominent
young business man of Eimira, N. Y.,
and bis bride is an amiable young lady
who is followed to ber new home by tie
best wishes of a large number of admir
ing friends in Galena. She is a ni ca of
Mrs. Elward Marfleld and Mrs. Dennis
Clune, of this city, and her home for a
number of years has been with Mr. and
Mrs. Mai field.
The ceremony began promptly at 8
o'clock, when the bridal party marched
ud the great aisle of the church to the
music of Mendelssohn's wedding march,
which was played by Miss Mary Gorman.
The bride was attended by ber cousin.
Miss Emma Clune, and John Ginnane, of
Rock Island, 111., was the best man.
Mf sirs. T. w. Gorman and J. C. O Neil
tfficiated as ushers and led the way to the
altar.the groom and bridesmaid following.

her broth ar, the best man. The bridal
party entered within the sanctuary rail,
where were met by the rector. Rev.
C. J. O'Callagan, O. D.. in full eccles
iastical vestments, who pronounced them
man and wife after the brief but impress
sive ceremony of the Catholic church .
It was a pretty wedding with nothing
lacking that would add to the effective
ness of the scene Countless tapers illu
minated the alt&rs and flral decorations
in rich profusion she.l their perfumes all
about. The beautiful bride was attired
in an elegant costume of ivory peau de
soi and brocade silk, with princess train
and garniture of silk ruchings and rich
Maltese lece. Her rosea were Marechal
Niels and she wore diamond ornaments,
the cift of the groom. The bridemaid
wore cream India silk, trimmed with Fe
dora lace. She carried a bouquet of
Jarquimot rose buds.
The ceremony over, the jovous strains
of the wedding march again broke forth
and the party retraced their way to the
doors. They were driven io the home of
Mr. Marfield on E.k street, where Mr. and
Mrs. Reagan received the congratulations
of a company composed only of relatives,
and a bounteous wedding feaet was en
joyed Tbe happy couple were then
driven to tbe Central depot and departed
for the east on tho midnight train. The
going away costume of tbe bride was of
green broadcloth. The groom has a home
in wailing for his bride. They will en
oy an extended wedding tour and will be
at home to their friends afur November

Sweet and Boor Apples.
Just why some should be sweet and some
sour is a puzzle. Tbe malic acid which
gives it the sour taste Beems to be in ahout
the same proportion in tbe unripe as in the
ripe apples; the difference in sweetness
seems to arise from the change of feculent
or starchy matter into sugar as the ripen
ing process proceeds. But, though the
chemist can tell us the exact elements
that go to make sugar, be cannot make
sugar for us. No power but that of the
living plant can do it, and we are absolute
ly in the dark as to how the plant gets it
Possibly the climate has some influence
on tbe acting vital power, for the Rhode
Island Greening apple, a sour apple in the
Atlantic states, is a sweet apple on the
Pacific and tbe same apple will often have
a part of the same fruit sweet on one side
and sour on the other. These cases are
generally attributed to some one in the
past baring split a branch through a bud,
then fitting the sweet apple half to the half
of the sour apple bud, and grafting the
spliced graft. This is regarded as an in
genious afterthought. Those who have
directly gone and repeated tbe experiment
have had no such result. Thomas Meehan
in Philadelphia Ledger.
Sorry He Spoke.
A parrot belonging to a clergyman was
generally taken out of the room when the
family assembled for prayers, for fear he
might take it into his head to join irreve
rently in the responses. One evening, how
ever, his presence happened to be un
noticed and he was entirely forgotten. For
some time he maintained a decorous si
lence, but at length, instead of "Amen,"
out he came with "Cheer, boys, cheer!"
On this tbe butler was directed to remove
him, and had got as far as the door with
him when tbe bird, perhaps thinking that
he had committed himself and bad better
apologize, called out, "Sorry 1 tpoke."
The overpowering effect on the company
may be more easily imagined than de
scribed. New York Advertiser.
1 h Tax Levy.
County Clerk Kobler has received no
tice from tbe state board of equalization
that a reduction tad been made of 29 per
cent cn Rock I land county lands, 10 per
cent on lots and 8 per cent on personal
property. On this scale it means a re
duction of about one quarter in the
amount of taxes to be received on lands
as the rates are limited acd cannot be in
creased to meet tbe reduced asseEsmett,
The limit of rile is 75 ceuts on $100. to
which can be added tbe 3 mill tax voted a
few years ago, which is equivalent to 30
cents on 1 100 if added to tbe above,
which would make a total of $1.05 on a
piece of land, the equalized value of
which is $100.
Tbe board of supervisors, who hsve
already bad to some fine figuring to make
both ends meet, will now have a better
chance to display their ability as fiosn-
ciers. Heretofore they have been com
pelled about once in three years to ask
for a special tax levy to make up the3e
ficiency, but under the reduced assets
ment the special levy will probably be
asked for every other year.
