LORAIX, Ohio, May 4.— "If Father Walser were to have his preliminary hearing right here in my office now and I had to use the evidence I now have in my possession against the man, in my judg ment I think I would let him go," was the remark made by Mayor King to-day when asked what he thought of the charge of murder against Father Walser, growing out of the slaying of Miss Relch lin. Chief of Police Bramen and Prosecutor Btroup held a like view. Prosecuting At ! torney Stroup said to-day that in his opin 1 ion the evidence at hand was not suffl ! cient to warrant holding Father Walser to appear before the grand jury.

Wedded in an undertaking parlor by an undertaker, with coffins and funeral decorations for drapery. Those are the conditions under which George P. Perry and Sylvia Fassett. both of San Fran cisco, began their married life together. The surroundings were somber enough, but the couple did not seem to mind that, and .they left the shop happy, despite the fact that they had plighted their troth where death usually reigned. The couple came to Oakland this morn ing to get married far from the madding crowds of San Francisco. They got. their license and then wanted to find a Methodist minister who would unite them quietly and^without any undue notoriety. In this endeavor they found J. E. Hender son, the junior member of the firm of Leitch & Henderson, undertakers. Mr. Henderson was willing to perform -the ceremony, and the couple were conducted into his undertaking parlors and there united with the ties that cannot now be broken under a year's time. The two San Franciscans did not object to the uncanny decorations, the coffins and shrouds, and seemed thoroughly satisfied. But the wedding in an undertaking es tablishment defeated the special plans of the couple for a quiet and unnoticed wed ding-. To have been married by an under taker was too good a story, and this most unique of all weddings is now being talked about all over Oakland. Oakland Office San Francisco Call, 1118 Broadway, May 4.

FOOD IN NEED Is a Friend Indeed. Many timei a school teacher In the mld- cle of a heavy session requires exactly the rieht kind of food to rebuild the v apted nerve and brain tissues as well - to keep up the muscular energy. This . th« business cf Grape-Xuts in which ihc Etarchy part of the pure cereals Is turned to gTape eugar and where the ; tcsphates predominate, making- it rich in food value and ready for the weakest Momach to assimilate immediately. A !.dy teacher of Minneapolis cays: "About four years ago I realized that I was breaking down nervously in the mid- cle of a school year. To a school teacher Jj.is means not only loss of health, but inability to go on with her work. Noth- i-""«r appeared to help me and I was Just afcout discouraged when a friend recom- mended that I look into Grape-Xute. On r<ailz.g what this food does toward re- building bcain and nerve centers I mado- tp my mind to give It a /air trial. •'I ate Grape-Nuts food dry with cream for breakfast and enjoyed It greatly; my improvement began immediately and was r-> stead.y that I did not realize how fully 1 had been benented until an extra strain came on me In roy school work through v.hieh I was able to go, continuing to improve all the time. Looking back on i he trial now, I realize how this wonder- la\ food saved me from a certain break- oown. \ "I have kept up the fially use of Grape- TCutB rver flnce and have never had a re- turn cf the trouble. I always take a pack- egc with me when traveling and I look upon the food as essential to my health as fresh air or exercise."
