Immediately following the ceremony a reception, perfect In every detail, was held at the handsome residence of Mr. and Mrs. E. Bennett, on Buchanan street. Miss Wagner has taught music for several vears and a very pretty idea was that of receiving her pupils informally from eight until eight thirty, and from nine until elev en, several hundred other friend3 were received. The Bennett home Is so beautiful on the interior that it scarcely needs any decoration, but for this occasion it was transformed into a perfect bower with Quantities of palms, cut flowers of all descriptions and ferns. The broad veranda surrounding the house on two sides was cosily rurnished for the occasion. As the guests arrived they were In troduced by Mr. Frank Bennett and Mr. John Waters. to the receiving party, which was composed of Mr. and Mrs. E. Bennett, Mrs. I. I. Wagner and Mr. and Mrs. E.

The other decorations in the- parlor consisted of jars of white carnations and white sweet peas. Garlands of feathery green latticed the door of the charming little tower room which opens off the parlor; suspended from the top of the door was a hang- ng basket of luxuriant ferns. In the library beyond were feins. palms and masses of brilliant hued nas turtiums. Across the hall in the music room behind a bank of palms. Stein burg's orchestar played during the evening; the air was perfumed by a profusion of sweet peas.

In effect the brides gown was as simple as it is possible for satin and point lace to be, but in reality it was one of the handsomest gowns ever worn by a Topeka bride. It was of cream white satin duehesse; around the bot tom of the skirt, which was made with a pronounced dip, was an accordion pleated flounce, headed with a tiny mousseline de soie ruche. A tunic over skirt of exquisite point lace reached to the flounce. The bodice was pointed in front and round in the back; the sleeves and yoke were of finely tucked mousse line de soie. The bolero in front, and inverted revers in the back, as well as the finish at the neck and bottoms of the sleeves were of point lace. A broad scarf of white liberty silk, the floating ends edeed with deep fringe, started at the right bolero and was caught at the left shoulder with a rhine stone buckle. The only ornament was a whole pearl and amethyst pendant, gift of the groom.

Mrs. E. Bennett wore a handsome costume of gray and white satin striped challie; the yoke and collar were of violet silk and the color was further brought out by a touch of black velvet. The yoke was partially veiled in point lace and at the foot or tne yone was bertha of point lace. The collar was caught with a diamond pin. The lace on Mrs. Bennett's gown was used on her wedding dress. Mrs. Wagner wore a charming gown of white silk mull, with black polka dots and trimmed in black.

Loops of pale gray DOWN TO DEATH. Two Boys Lose Their Lires While Swimming. There is great sorrow in the home. Of Edward P. Collins this morning for it seems almost certain that the son Ed die Collins,, who is 14 years old and his cousin, Edward Fitzgerald, aged 22, are drowned. The boys left home Wednesday te'.llng Mrs. Collins that they were going to swim. They started out for the swim ming hole known to the boys as Beaver island, which is about one and a half miles above the Rock Island railroad bridge. They did not return at noon and Mrs. Collins began to worry, but did not think it necessary to start a search un til in the evening when Mr. Collins came home. By that time the family was satisfied that something was wrong and Mr. Collins, accompanied by Mr. T. F. Lannan started to go up the river bank. They first notified the police of the disappearance of the boys and found that they had heard nothing of them. Before they had reached the spot the clothing of Fitzgerald had been found, but nothing was found belonging to young Collins. When the finding of the clothing was reported to the police. Sergeant Betts and Officer J. E. Lucas went to the place and began a search for the bodiea. The storm made the waves so high that it was almost impossible to row a boat and drag the books, but the party per sisted In the search until midnight. This morning the search was renewed by Sergeant Donovan and a squad of men Deputy Sheriff Lawson and many citi zens. They worked all morning with poles and hooks for a great distance be low the place where the boys were sup posed to have gone in but were unable to find a single trace of the missing ones. The fact that none cf the clothing of young Collins has been found had led to many surmises as to how he wa drowned. There is a deep hole a few feet from the bank and it is suggested that Fitzgerald got into this and young Col lins in trying to help him from the bank was drawn into the water. Eddie Collins is not a strong boy and could not swim, while Fitzgerald was a well Duitt young man and a strong swimming.His sinking can be accounted for in many ways as every one is aware tnat cramps and snags are as danger ous to the strong swimmer as to the weak one. A dog which accompanied the bovs in the morning did not return home until 6 o clock. He again went to the place where the boys had disappeared after .Mr. uonms lert the house. Edward P. Collins, the father of the boy Eddie, is an employe of the Wells Fargo Express company and lives at 307 Tyler street. Ed Fitzgerald is his nephew and is also an employe of the express company. His parents live in iNew iork state. HILL SUCCESSFUL. Great Northern Magnate at Last Se cures Northern Pacific. Minneapolis, Minn., June 28.

The national disease of Americans is indigestion or in its chronic form, dys pepsia, and for the very reason that it is so common many people neglect tak ing proper treatment forwhat they con sider trifling stomach trouble, when as a matter of fact indigestion lays the foundation for many Incurable diseases. No person with a vigorous, healthy stomach will fall a victim to consump tion. Many kidney diseases and heart troubles date their" beginning from poor digestion: thin, nervous people are real ly so because their stomachs are out of gear; weary, languid, faded out women owe their condition, to imper fect digestion. When nearly every person you meet is afflicted with weak digestion it is not surprising that nearly every secret patent medicine on the market claims to be a cure for dyspepsia, as well as a score of other troubles, when in fact, as Dr. Werthier says, there is but one genuine dyspepsia cure which ia per fectly safe and reliable, and moreover, this remedy is not a patent medicine, but it is a scientific combination of pure pepsin (free from animal matter), vegetable essences, fruit salts and bis muth. It is soid by druggists under name of Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets. No extravagant claims are made for them, but for indigestion or any stomach trouble Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets are far ahead of any remedy yet discovered. They act on the food eaten, no dieting is necessary, simply eat all the whole some food you want and these tablets will digest it. A cure results, because all the stomach needs is a rest, which Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets give by do- ing the work of digestion. AN OLD CITIZEN GONE. Ex-Sheriff W. D.
