John Deery figured in a marriage at the Cathedral to-day. Was he the bridegroom? No. He was a witness. It was tho culmination of a little romance and Mr. Deery is culpable in that be helped two lovers to become twain. Fred Eilerof Manchester loved Julia Fitzgerald. Their love for each other was ardent but its courso was not smooth. It was the old story of parental opposition. Julia's father did not like the man of her choice but this only served to make her love for him stronger. It was tho same with Fred Eller. When he found out that Julia's father was opposed to him he set his teeth in grim determination. He would wed Julia Fitzgerald in spito of her father's wlsheB. So to-dav the overs came to Dubuque. They went straight to the archepiscopal residence and laid their oase before father Barry, Their story finished, the good priest ruminated a moment, then made out the necessary dispensation. A few moments later priest and lovers wer in the Cathedral and here beneath the glorious arches Julia Fitzgerald became the wife of Fred Eller. But a dilemna arose. Some one must needs be witness. Happily Mr. Ueery was at .the Cathedral on business. He was appealed to but was loath to officiate His protestations were of no avail, however, and he was pressod into service. Fred Eller is 21 years old and his bride four years his junior.—Dubuque Telegraph. Dennis Coleman.

The girl was overwhelmed with offers, but final ly made a "selection and settled in a family that valued her services \eiy highly. The girl was happy until one day her employer met a neighbor, a very dear friend, and told her of her good fortune in flnding the country girl. And this neighbor met another very dear friend and told her of her other friend's good luck, and thus did it become generally known that there was a good "hired girl" in the uclgh borhood. And from that time on the mistress and the girl were unhappy uutil one day the very dear friend gave the girl $1.50 more a week than she waa earn ing iu her first place, aud in this man ner did the girl become happy again, while her mistress and the very dear friend ceased to be on speaking terms. And then the girl became unhappy again until the other very dear friend engaged her at an advance of $1 and the other dear friend and the first dear friend ceased to talk over tho back fence. And then the good girl wore fine dresses and flne hats, and one day a dashing young man led her to the altar, and now the three friends and the poor country girl are all very happy.
