Last Thursday afternoon, at 5 o’clock, Sept. 24tb, 1908, Miss Anna Gertrude Harger, of this city, was united in mar riage to Mr. George Edwin Diamond, of Cripple Creek, Colorado,- the cere mony taking place at the home of the former’s parents, Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Harger, 603 Franklin street. The home was handsomely decorated with cut flowers, palms, ferns smilax and autumn leaves; though charater ized by the utmost simplicity, the event was none the less brilliant. At the appointed hour, the principals of these most happy nuptials, presented themselves, unattended, in the west par lor for the ceremony, which was very impressively performed by Rev. Dr. William Dafter, an Episcopal clergy man, of Marshfield, an old friend of Mr. Harger, and in the presence, only, of relatives of both families. The bride wore a gown of white lingerie, without ornaments, and car ried bride roses. Following the ceremony, the Colum bia orchestra, which occupied a place in the music room, played the march from Lohengrin, and aftgr congratula tions were said a wedding repast was served. From 8:30 o’clock, old time friends and neighbors came in to tender con gratulations, and among them was the Tuesday Musical club, of which organ ization the bride was formerly a valued member; they entered, singing the bridal chorus from the “Rose Maiden,’’ with Miss Belle Heinemann at the piano. Mr. and Mrs. Abercrombie accom panied the club, the latter having also at one time been a member of the same. During the entire evening there was music by the orchestra. Much interest was manifested in the many handsome wedding gifts, which included articles beautiful and ornamental as well as useful. □ The same evening at 11:15, Mr. and Mrs. Diamond departed for Chicago and from there will go to Kansas City, for a brief visit before going to Cripple Creek, where they will reside and be at home to their friends after N>v. Ist. Quite a number of friends went to the Northwestern depot, to bid farewell to Mr. and A. rs. Diamond, but as they had taken automobile to Kelly, where they boarded the train, the young people had no chance to dispose of their rice. This city has always been the home of the bride, who is the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. C. W. Harger, and the only regret entertained by her hosts of friends is that she will have to make her home elsewhere tfian Wausau. iShe was a graduate of the Cincinnati col lege of music and bad taken an active part in furthering the interests of Wau sau in a musical way. For three years she was supervisor of music in our city schools, and resigned to accept a simi lar-position in the city schools of Crip ple Creek, Col., and it was while there that she met Mr. Diamond. She is a iqost estimable young lady who de serves the fullest measure of happiness The groom is interested in mining in Cripple Creek and though he has made only two brief visits here his genial ways and recognized ability has won for him lasting friends. May sunshine, not storm, be theirs. Those present from away were Mr. and Mrs. C. C. Hoefer and daughters, Miss Hoefer and Mary Louise, of Kan sas City; Miss Julia Harger and Mrs. H. H. Gallup of Watertown; Miss Emma Haseltine of Ripon and John Diamond, of Kansas City. National German American Bank.

The Pilot has prevously stated that an ordinance will be presented to the council for consideration which will provide changes in the regulation of the city’s water system. This ordi nance will perhaps be introduced at the next meeting of the council. By a perusal of it we find the following principal provisions boiled down so it will fit in a nut shell: The system shall be operated under the direction of the water commission to consist of mayor, three citizens and one alderman. The commission shall appoint all em ployes and make such regulations as it sees fit. The superintendent shall hold office for such time as the commission sees fit. He shall have general supervision uuder the directionjof the commission. The commission shall enforce rules relative to use cf water and make an nual report of true condition of system in spring of each year. Meter rates shall be established as follows: First l,f>oocubic feet (minimum,)s2 50. Next 5,000 “ “ 17c per 100 cubic feet, f* Next 15,000 “ “ 13c “ “ “ ft. Next at 5c per 100 cubic ft. Water rents, except in special cases, are due and payable in advance on the first days of January and July of each year. If rents are not paid within one month, water will be turned off. In fixing rates pa the number rooms basis, all rooms except baths, halls and closets are to be considered. Rooms excepted, where used exclusively by one family are considered private. Here comes the most important part: “All services which may hei’eafter be connected, and all services which have been heretofore connected with the city waterworks system, shall be connected with a water meter, pur chased by the city at- the property own er’s expense.” The work of connecting the meters niust be paid for by the property owner. Water rents where meter rates have been placed, shall be collected semi-annualy for the past six months on January Ist and July Ist each year. If rentals are not paid in ten days a penalty of ten per cent, will be charged, also 5 per ceut. treasurer’s fees. Said dues shall be a lien on the real estate until paid and shall be placed in the tax roll as a delinquent tax against the property. Any persons violating any of the rules and regulations, upon conviction thereof, shall be subject to a tine not to exceed $25 and costs of prosecution. Water rents (once paid are not to be refunded, except where consumer moves away and water is turned off by the city. In that event a rebate for uuexpired time will be given. “Water priveleges may be transferred from one person to another. Street or yard fixtures must not be converted into jets or fountains, nor sfiall hose, during sprinkling, be secured to auy frame, post or other mechanical device whatever but shall be held in the hand. Revolving lawn sprinklers and other like mechanical devices shall be used only before 8 o’clock a. in. and from 5 o’clock p. m.” From May 1 to Nov. 1 will constitute the sprinkling year. The balance ox the ordinance applies mainly to the work of plumbers, the care of appli ances, etc. NOTICE. * On and after October Ist we will start to buy barley, price from 55 to 60 cents per bushel. 529-2 w.
