Admission prices remain the same. - Wisconsin Leads With Cows. The official statement given out by the bureau of statistics at Washington that the value of Wisconsin cows ad vanced from $71,000,000 at the close of 1912 to $92,000,000 at the end of 1913 is one more instance of our dairying wealth. This is due largely to an ad vance in the average price of cows from $47 to S6O, which in turn has been roused by the largely increased profits from milk, butter and cheese. An ad dition to the wealth of the state in a single item of $21,000,000 in a year is worth noting. It is proof of the sound basis of Wisconsin agricultural industry. This state has one-eighth of all the cows in the United States, and her proportion of the total is steadily in creasing. Assuredly the people of this state in general as well as the stock growers have ample cause for rejoic ing in this abundance. Peters-Dallman Wedding. The wedding festivities surrounding the marriage of Harold Peters, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Peters, and Miss Elsie Dallman, daughter of Alderman and Mrs. August Dallman, may be recorded as being among the most elaborate and largely attended ever taking place in our city. A large number of invitations had been ex tended to the different functions, in cluding the ceremony at the church, a reception at the groom’s parents and a dance given at Academy hall, which met with very liberal responses. The marriage ceremony took place at St. John’s Lutheran church, Tuesday, April 14, 1914, at 4p. m., Rev. J. C. Spillman officiating, the church being filled with friends and relatives. The contracting parties were attended by George and Bernard Dallman, brothers of the bride and Misses Leona Berry and Freda Klimenhaugen. The little flower girls were Loraine Schoenfeld and Katherine Burgy. The bride was beautifully dressed in a gown of cream white crepe de chine, trimmed with shadow lace and satin and carried a shower bouquet of roses and lillies of the valley, wearing a long tulle veil in bonnet effect. The bridesmaids were dressed in white silk. Following the church services a re ception was held at the home of the groom’s parents, where a most boun teous wedding dinner was served, which was partaken of by more than 350 guests. The home was most taste fully decorated and William’s orchestra discoursed selections during the dinner hour. The festivities were continued with a dance at Academy hall in the evening where fully 200 young friends of the bride and groom assembled and pleasantly passed a most delightful oc casion. Supper was served those pres ent at the Peters’ home and the early morning hours had arrived before the last of the merry-makers had departed. The presents to the newly weds in cluded a great variety of useful and beautiful articles which will be highly prized by them as they begin life’s journey together. The young couple will begin housekeeping in a home al ready furnished on Washington street, with the best wishes of a large number of friends.

Obituary. WILLIAM PELLS. William Pells was born September 15, 1837, at Waterloo, 111., and died at his home in the town of Albion, Dane county, Wis., April 7, 1914. The cause of his death was a slight bruise over the right eye which brought on blood poisoning, causing much suffering. While he was yet a young boy his parents moved to Wisconsin and set tled on a farm in the town of Albion. Here he attended the public school and was for a time a student of Albion academy. On the 30th of August, 1862, he enlisted for service in the civil war and served to the close of the war. He took part in fourteen battles, the siege and capture of Vicksburg being in the list. After the war he bought the farm on which he has since lived. On the 28th of September he was married to Miss Sardinia Cheesbrough. They had no children of their own, but when Miss Winifred Pells was three years of age she went to live with them and has been loved and cared for by them as though she were their own child. Mr. Pells was a man of quiet disposition, loving his home and family, an upright citizen and a good neighbor. He served for some time on the local school board. He was the second of a family of seven children and the second to go. He is survived by his widow, Miss Winifred, two brothers and three sisters. They are Jeremiah Pells, Mrs. Charles Court ner and Mrs. James Sisson of Coloma, Washara county, Wis., George Pells of Albion, Dane county, Wis., and Mrs. Henry Schurtleff of North Dakota. The funeral services were held at the home Friday afternoon, April 10, con ducted by Rev. T. W. North. HENRY KAUFMAN. Henry Kaufman, one of the very earliest German settlers in Edgerton, was found dead in his bed at his home in this city at an early hour Saturday morning. He had not been feeling as well as usual for a day or so previous but his condition was not thought to be serious when he retired for the night. When his wife went to call him for breakfast about 6 a. m. he was dead. The spark of life had fled while he slept and to all appearances the end came without pain or a struggle. Mr. Kaufman was born in Saxony, Germany, March 31st, 1833, being the eldest of six children of George and Katherine Baumbach Kaufman. At the age of 14 years he was apprenticed as a butcher, which trade he followed until a few years ago. He emigrated to Wisconsin in 1864, settling first in Janesville, later moving to Milwaukee where he was married Sept. 21, 1865, to Louise Lehman. The next year he returned to Janesville and in 1868 came to Edgerton and entered the employ of Attlesey & Roberts’ market. The home which he secured at that time the fam ily has lived in for 43 years. Here were born a family of nine children, six of whom survive, Emma, Henry of Janesville, Louis, superintendent of the high school at Blaine, Wash., Edward, Marie (Mrs. Gullickson) of Palmyra, and Ernest, who with the widow and fourteen grandchildren, three brothers and one sister, are left to mourn his loss. Mr. Kaufman was one of the original organizers of the German Lutheran church society in Edgerton, only two of whom now survive. On his 81st birthday the employees of the T. B. Earle warehouse presented him with an easy chair which he prized very highly. Funeral services were held in the Congregational church Wednesday af ternoon, Rev. F. W. Schoenfeld preach ing in German and Rev. Philip E. Greg ory the English service. Interment was made in Fassett cemetery. Election Mixup in Porter. In the town of Porter there is a ques tion as to the legality of the election of the town clerk and it is quite possi ble that anew election will be neces sary. Charles Hoag, who defeated Benjamin Towne, the retiring clerk, at the polls on Tuesday, was also elected to the office of justice of the peace, and under the law which provides that one man shall not be elected to more than one public office, it will probably be the ruling that both offices are vacant. In that case the retiring town clerk, Mr. Towne, will serve until his successor is elected at a special election. Town ship officials are uncertain whether Mr. Hoag can resign from the office of justice of the peace and then qualify as town clerk. The matter will probably he r~Liied lh~ attorney general.
