The groom is a member of the Waterbury Brothers and 'fenny, a musical team, which was play:ag at the Tivoli Theater, in Sidney, at the time of the wedding. The exact date is not known, the news coming through A. H. Gregory, proprietor of the boathouse where the brotners are keep ing their boat, the Eik, during their travels. "The wedding is the conclusion of a very pretty romance,** states a Sidney newspaper, a clipping from which is in Mr. Gregory's possession. "Mr. Water bury met his wife when she was a child, his brother having married her sister, and they renewed their old acquaintance not long ago on a motor boating party un the Potomac river, the friendship ripening into something less prosaic. "When the two brothers forming the musical t^am made up their minds to come to Australia the young woman was seized with a desire to see the country also, so she accompanied her sister, with the happy result stated."

US FIRST GOLD MEDAL IS BESTOWED ON PEARY Explorers' Club to Present Honor Taken at Fifth Anniversary Dinner. The Explorers' Club will give a dinner in New York tonight to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the discovery of the north pole and will present its first gold medal ! of honor to Rear Admiral Peary. In con 1 nection with the celebration geographers ' here today predicted that another rive years probably would leave no nook or corner of the globe unknown to the civi lized world. With Sir Ernest Shackleton. the English explorer, and an Austrian expedition under Dr. Felix Koenig, about to start for the antarctic regions, with Amundsen and Stefansson preparing to open up most of the remaining mysteries of arctic territory, and with Roose velt in Brazil, going over a large stretch of hitherto unknown land. It was pointed out that very little of the earth's surface would remain unmapped a few years hence. Value of Explanations Discussed. Opinions differed, however, as to the relative value of the explorations which remain to be made. Maj. Gen. A. VV. Greely, U. S. A., retired, himself an arctic explorer of renown, who with his small party reached in ISM what was then farthest north, declared today that mankind probably wouid benefit most by exploration "of rhe vast unknown areas of Brazil, because of the economic value of these discoveries. Gilbert H. Grosvenor of the National Geographic Society, on the other hand, said he thought explorations in the still unknown arctic territory, about 1.000 miles in diameter nd. thea-H of Bering i strait, would be of most value. Larger Than United States. Mr. Grosvenor pointed out that the area around the south pole still to be gone over carefullj' and mapped is larger in extent than the United States: that the meteorological discoveries which would be made in the arctic territory, the second largest unknown area, would be of great est value in connection with the studv of storm data. He said he thought Mr. Roosevelt probably would cover at least one-third of the unknown Brazilian area. The fourth unexplored area which he ! mentioned was the northern portion of! Tibet, smaller in area than any of the * others, but largely unknown because of : tb* height of the mountains and the dif ficulty of travel there. GEORGE WILLIAMS FACES SEVEN ROBBERY CHARGES Wears Costly Clothing Which Ex cites Suspicion:?Alleged loot Val ued at Over $1,000. George ?Williams, colored, thirty-two years old, who roomed at 5 Defrees street northwest, appeared on the streets Sat urday night wearing expensive garments that did not fit him, and his appearance excited the suspicions of Detective Guy Walsh, who arrested him. The prisoner remained mute until yesterday afternoon, the police say, when he became talkative and admitted he had committed about a dozen robberies in this city In the past three weeks. Following the>a< admissions of the pris oner. Detective Wa3sh. went to his room and found loAt Jerwnigh to?U/two trunks. The property the prisoner admits taking from the several houses, the police say, waa worth considerably more than $1,000, and the articles recovered from Williams' room is valued at almost that amount. Says He Served Prison Term. Williams told Detective Walsh that he formerly resided in Florida. He was ar rested in this city four years ago, he stated, and sentenced to two years in prison at Atlanta. After his release from prison, he stated, he went to Baltimore, and three weeks ago he came to this city. At the Defrees street house he stated that he was employed at a local hotel, and that he was a member of the night force. "I did all my house work between 11 o'clock at night and 5 o'clock in the morning," Williams is said to have told the police, "and in some instances I got things in rooms where people were sleep ing." * Seven charges of burglary have been preferred against Williams. The police have a number of articles taken from his room that have not been identified. Com plainants in the seven cases are Charles A. Spalding, 1703 Rhode Island avenue northwest; Surgeon General P. M. Rixey, 1518 K street northwest; M. H. Fearnow, 435 7th street southwest; C. J. Ashton, 1233 30th street northwest; D. J. Dres den. 1514 K street northwest; E. Kay, 915 P street northwest, and C. W. Thompson, 1418 Columbia street north west. Valuables Recovered. Detective Walsh recovered ail the pieces of solid silverware, 230 in number, taken from Mr. Spalding's house, and the forty eight watches and other articles of jew elry stolen from Fearnow's jewelry store. Other property found in the prisoner s room included graphophones, records arid odds and ends of jewelry and silverware. It is thought by the police that Wil liams committed robberies In Baltimore before he came to this city. Williams said he was making preparations to leave this city, and probably would have gone yesterday had the detective not arrested him. The prisoner stated that another colored man was with him at two places where he obtained valuables, but the other man has not been arrested. Wil liams will be arraigned In Police Court tomorrow morning. DEATH TAKES HEAVY TOLL OF AVIATORS OF WORLD Between January 1 and April 1 Thirty-Eight Men Lose Their Lives.

From every source where fashions originate we have drawn the richest in spirations for our New Millinery. Almost without limit are the styles which have been evolved. Odd shapes and designs lend a lif- and beauty such as Millinery has not shown in years. Many of the quaint effects seem to have been revived from American styles of a generation ago. They are modified, of course, but the one sided height, the odd outline, the unique manner in which they fit the head all exemplify picturesque modes of that time. Most of the hats are small in size, these make up for their lack of size by the oddity of their shapes and their pleasing becomingness. Height is accentuat ed by nearly all the trimmings, but there are a good many hats distinctly new which fit the head very flat. The Displays Which We Now Present Are Full to Overflowing With Newness.
