WEDDING BELLS.
On Thursday afternoon at half past
five o'clock there occurred at the resi
dence of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Schwartz,
on Woodworth-ave., a very pretty home
wedding, the contracting parlies being
Royal M. Hyde, son of II. J. Hyde, and
Miss Lena Schwartz, the eldest daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Schwartz.
Kev. W. K. Spencer pronounced the
few words that made the young couple
man and wife in the presence of a large
number of invited relatives and friends.
Miss Gertrude Dunham of Grand Rap
ids acted as bridesmaid, while J. Major
Lemen of Shepherd filled the position of
best man for the groom. Miss Blanche
Woodward and Miss Edna Schwartz, a
sister of the bride, assisted as maids of
honor. The rooms were handsomely
decorated with flowers and potted
plants, and when the bridal party filed
into the room to themusic of the wed
ding march played by Miss Jennie
Smith, a very impressive scene v as pre
sented. After an elaborate wedding
supper the happy couple left on the
evening train for Saginaw, Bay City
and Caro on a short wedding trip.
When they return they will take up
their residence with the bride's parents
for a few weeks until they go to keep
ing house. Both contracting parties
are well and favorably known to our
people and they have the best wishes of
a host of friends.

A Romantic Case.
Married at the bride's residence Dec.
12, 1801), in this village, John Zibble to
Mrs. Ida B. Gay. A somewhat roman
tic and pecular history is connected
with this marriage. About twenty-two
years ago, John Zibble and Miss Ida B.
Lotten were united in marriage and to
them was bom one child, May Zibble.
After a time a separation occurred and
Mrs. Zibble married Allan Gay; seven
children were born to them, two of
whom died in infancy. The match
seemingly not being a happy one, a sep
aration ensued, and a divorce was se
cured by Mrs. Gay. After a time, Mrs.
Gay and her former husband, John
Zibble, met ; the love of their earlier
years revived, resulting in the marriage
above recorded. May a long and happy
life be theirs is the wish of their friends.

A Moral.
An inevitable consequence of prosper
ity is rising prices. During hard times
prices get down to bed rock and a little
below, based on the most economical
standard of living and cost of produc
tion at reduced wages. As times im
prove, prices advance, wages go up and
a higher standard of living is estab
lished. In the last two years the only
necessity of life that has not advanced
is the newspaper. It is 'the cheapest
thing in the market. The man who
ppends a dollar a year for his newspaper
gets more value for his money than for
anything else he can buy for that
amount. Moral : Now is the time to
subscribe for the Record, or pay what
you owe for.

Very Appreciative.
One of the best ways to show your ap
preciation of a home paper is to get ycur
printing done out of town because yon
can save a dollar, and then when yon
want a column notice that you think
will help your business, take it to your
home printer and ask him to print it
just for the good of the town. This
phows the unlimited gall on the one
part, and how big a fool the home pub
lisher is to use such rot on the other
part. Would a printer in the city who
does the job work cheaper than the
heme printer give you a 13.00 notice?
When newspaper men get educated up
to the point not to allow such impos
tors to impose on them, their efforts
will be more appreciated. Ex.

False Statements Refuted.
Some few days ago I visited' several
dairies furnishing milk for Alma pat
rons for the purpose of investigating the
condition of the cows and taking care of
the milk, to see if there were any reas
ons in this source for the number of
cases of typhoid fever. My report, verb
ally, to our health committee, and any
one else who cared to ask, was that I
found the cows all well and milk from
them in every respect perfect. I did say
then, and do say now, when asked if
one was any better than another, that I
found the McLaughlin milk house and
surroundings, the taking care of the
milk after it comes from the barn, in a
better condition than any of the other
ones. I have bought milk of Mr. Perry
for the past two years and will continue
to do so, so far as his milk is concerned,
and consider it all right. I know that
the milk served by Mr. Davis is all right
and clean. Any reports from any
source different from this statement are
false and should not be used against a
competitor. Dr. J. F. Suydam,
Health Officer.

A Neat Swindle.
There are a whole lot of farmers over
in Deerfield and Freemont who are
looking for one of the sleekest swindlers
who has ever made an appearance
among 'em since the Bohemian oats
men came around. This fellow was or
ganizing a stock company, a branch of
Montgomery & Ward establishment of
Chicago, to be located in Mt. Pleasant.
He sold certificates of stock for one and
two dollars. It is said he realized about
$300 from the localities mentioned but it
hardly seems probable that there are
so many suckers to be found in that
territory. They kept the matter very
quiet but it just leaking out. Mt Pleas
ant Courier. It will be well for our
readers to keep watch for these sharpers.
A Fine Concert.
The concert given by the "Original
Giant Quartette" last evening, was well
attended aud all seemed well pleased
with the entertainment. The quartette
sang several selections showing their
perfect harmony and calling out the
merited applause. McKanlass in his
work on the violin proves himself an
artist. Miss Perry in her songs, cake
walking and jestures was a very pleat
ing feature of the evening. Their con
cert contains no vulgarism, and is cer
tainly worthy of liberal patronage.
