After a courtship of only one week, and

more minor officials, the American. Ambas
sador and several American Consuls In
Germany, the Reverend Doctor Henry
Bode, pastor of the German Evangelical
Church at Mehlvllle. secured a bride whom
he has brought from Europe to his St.

Primarily It required American determi

Fatherland, and when Doctor Bode succeed
ed In marrying Miss Johanna Faust at the
home of her father in Barmen, Germany,
July 17, the feat was widely celebrated as
being remarkable in many respects.
Doctor Bode left St. Louis April 24, In
responss to a cablegram from his sister.

Samuel J. Will, one of his parishioners, and

the preceding nine months, had been visit

Thinks of Sweetheart During- Travel.
After six days at Duls, during which the
St. John's pastor made good use of his
time, the party proceeded to Heidelberg,
where Doctor Bode spent three weeks with
his sister. Then he went to Switzerland,
and from there to Italy, and thence ba:k to
Germany for a trip down the Rhine.
Doctor Bode says he enjoyed the trip im
mensely, but all the while he was think

He arrived there July S. Although he had
been fascinated before, he was now com
pletely captivated by her charm, and de
termined to win her If he could before sail

It was then that his troubles began. He
discovered that before he could get married
Germany he would have to produce his
own, as well as his parents', birth certifi
cates. His first wife, who was a sister-in-law
of Mrs. Will, died two years ago, and
he was told that he would hae to produce
a certificate of her death.
Doctor Bode had arranged to depart for
America on July 17 and wanted to be mar
ried on that day. The ceremony had been
set for 5 o'clock. He explained to the of
ficials that It would be an utter Impossibil
ity for him to comply with all their regu
laUons, and they replied that he would have
to do without a German bride. This, he
declared, he would not do.
He called on Walter Bourreich. the
American Consul, who Is a Chicago' man.
and aeked for his assistance. Bourreich ad
vised an elopement to England, telling him
that it would be impossible to evade the
laws of the Empire. Doctor Bode did not
take to the Idea. He said he knew that
