September 3 ?Freder ick W. Meyerdirck is the smallest Mason in the state or Maryland and one of the smallest Elks in the world, being only forty-two inches hjgh. but he is a giant, a Hercules in courtship, a colossus in making love. Meyerdirck. thirty years old, after a romantic courtship. eloped yesterday with Miss Rose M Holland of this city, and they were married in Wilmington, Del. The bride is seventeen years old. a pretty brunette, petite, but not mark edly so. For example, as her mother said today: " li- luts to bland on his tiptoes to plant a chaste salute on her Tips?and, at th <t, ^he has to incline her head." Mrs. Holland strongly opposed the match, but she says only because of her daughter's youth and of the suitor's lack of height But opposition did not daunt the small but mighty Meyer dirck. H? has ,i cigar and llower shop at Liberty and Fayette streets. As if to proclaim his affection Meyerdirck named his ?hop "The Holland" and set .tut the name in letters almost as tall as himself Miss Holland told her parents ves terday she was ?oing to pass the day with friends at Pikeviile Instead she met Meyerdirck in a taxicab. and they caught the first train for Wilmington." v.v H:t> married, send letters at once,'' the bridegroom telegraphed a rriend here. The letters, in which this wee, won derful wooer announced assuredly his approaching marriage, had been ad dressed to his parents, who. it happens, live in Holland A reporter got Mr Meyerdirck on the long-distam e phone in Wilminrton to day and asked him when his b.Vle and he were coming home. He seemed un certain about that, but said, gleefully: "Now let me down easily, you know I'm only a little fellow." L. M. Burke, ninety-one years old. and perhaps ?! e oldest resident of Keyser. W. Va . died He is suivlved by two sons and two daughters. BEATS THE PEACH BASKET.
