on condition that thu dowry was actually what It

This nildcbrand who w as llrst in lllsmnrck's ser

finally settled In Wisconsin aud died a few years

tho tough days or his youth. A party of olllccrs,

greatest freedom und lho spirits of tho party had
risen accordingly, lllldcbrand was a big, strap
