New York, Dec. 29. The pre

et Bachner Avere among the most
remarkable that have ever been
witnessed in this or any other city
of our fair land. '

ence at the marriage cere
mon of their children '

dressed to M. Krauss, 1437 Bos-ton-rd,

Kindly return this card the latest

Exhibit C: The following,

Read This Carefully.
Pear Friends: Anyone who
will be kind to appear would not
bring presents by no means.
Further, the bridegroom's
strict wish is that ladies should
wear nothing else but a white
waist and a black skirt, -
Children under twelve years-of
age not admitted.
It is painfulto relate that the
injunctions of Mr. Krauss were
not obeyed by the gaests who at
tended his marriage. The bridal,
couple did receive some presents.
There were several intrepid chil
dren on hand, guarjded by their
parents. And there were a con
siderable number of Indies who
did wear something else besides
a white waist and a black skirt.
Notwithstanding all which, Mr.
Krauss -wore a beaming smile,
and found faulfwith no one. ' Tn
explanation of his unique instruc
tions to the guests, he said he
didn't want his friends to think
they had to buy gifts, he didn't
want ladies in modest circum
stances embarrassed by the pres
ence of others in silks and jewels,
and he didn't want a lot of kids N
kept up late. He meant well.,
you never heard this one.
I remember the black wharves
and their slips,
And the sea tide's tossing free;
And the Spanish sailors i with
bearded lips, , '
And the beauty and mystery of
And the magic of the sea. -And
the voice of the, way- .
wardsong r '
Is singing and saying still:
"A boy's will is the wind's
And the thoughts of youth are
long, long, thoughts'
v -t Longfellow
