On Sundfty, June 10,1900, at the home
of the bride's step-father, Mr. Otto Kil
Ulcer, seven mile* north-east of Kellerton,
the marriage of Mr. Harvey L. Teale
and Miss Marie L. Rueas was solemnized.
Kev. Charles Knoll, pastor of the Meth
odist church, officiated. The ceremony
was preformed in the presence of about
50 relatives and friends. Promptly at
12 o'clock while the weddingmarch wad
being played by Miss Kate Teale,
the groom's sister, the young couple
took their station in the parlor and the
clergyman spoke the words that unitep
their destinies. After congratulations,
a sumptuous wedding repast was served.
The bride was attired in beautiful gown
of mercerized mull, with lace and ribbon
trimming, and carried a boquet of apple
blossuras. She is one of Decatur county's
and popular young ladies,
and is in every way worthy of the young
man to whom she was joined in' mar
riage. The groom who has been a resi
dent of Kellerton most of his life, is at
present engaged in the furniture business
being the junior member of the firm of
H. L. Teale & Co., and is one of our
most enterprising business men. Mr.
and Mrs. Teale will spend a week or two
visiting relatives and friends, after
which they will be at home in Kellerton.
They received many beautiful and val
uable presents. The Olobe joins their
many friends in wishing them a happy
and prosperous journey through this
new life which they have been so auspi
ciously launched.—Kellerton Globe.
Would not Suffer so Again for
Fifty Times, the Price.
1 awoke last night with severe pains
in mv stomach. I never felt
in all my life. When I came down to
work this morning I felt so weak I could
hardly work. I went to Miller & Mc
Curdy's drug Btore and they recom
mended Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera
and Diarrhoea Remedy. It worked like
magic and one dose'fixed me alright.
It certainly is the finest thing 1 ever
used for stomach trouble. 1 shall not
be without it in my home hereafter, for
I should not care to. endure the suffer
ings of last nightfor fifty times its price.

His Life was Saved.
Mr. J. E. Lily, a prominent citizen of
Hannibal, Mo., lately had a wonderful
deliverance from a frightful death. In
telling ol it he says: "I was taken with
typhoid fever, that ran into pneumonia
My lungs became hardened. I was so
weak I couldn't even sit up in bed.
Nothing helped me. I expected to soon
die ot consumption, when I heard of Dr.
King's Niew. Discovery. One bottle gave
me great relief. I continued to use it,
and am now wefl and strong. I can
say too much in its praise." This mar
vellous medicine is the surest and quick
est cure in the world for all throat and
lung trouble. Regular sizes 50 cts. and

Was Durrant Innocent?
Newspaper readers will readily recall
the sensational murder of Blanche La
ment and Minnie Williams by Theodore
Durrant some time ago in the "state of
California. In reference therefore the
Salt Lake Tribune is responsible for the
One of the saddest and most atro
cious legal murders so far recorded is
that ol Theodore Durrant, hanged in
California a few years since for the mur
der of Blanche Lamont. and Minnie
Williams, a most diabolical double
crime, its very liendishness hardly have
ing a parallel in the annal of vice, and
its perpetrator was sought high and low
for several days, the whole world hoping
for bis capture and punishment. In
the meantime tlieso-culled astute detect
ives and police authorities concluded a
victim was needed, and after fastening
their clutches on younc Durrant proceed
ed to collect what they termed evidence,
the whole mass of htnll in all probability
being manufactured for the pupose of
conviction, and all of circumstantial
nature. Durrant stoutly maintained
from hisarrest up to the moment of ex-,
ecution that he was innocent of the hor
rible charge, but forsooth he could not
explain every moment of his presence at
certain times, he was convicted, and
hanged, and once more the majesty of
the law, along with the thick-skulled
theory of these police wiseacres, was
duly vindicated. Now the sequel: A
few days ago, on his death bed, Rev.
Gibson, who at the time was pastor of
Emanuel church where one of the mur
ders was committed .confesses that he kill
ed both of the victims. He was an active
and important witness at the trial of
poor Durrant, the reason of which is
now quite plain, p.nd also in view of the
fact that suspicion was strongly directed
to him at the time.
In view of the prominence which the
newspapers gave to the murder and the
subsequent trial of the accused, we are
at a loss to understand why the alleged
confession of the Rev. Gibson has seem
ingly attracted so little attention. How
ever, we reproduce the above for what
it may be worth.
How To Cure a Sprain.
Last fall I sprained my left hip while
handling some heavy boxes. The doc
tor 1 called on said at first it was a slight
strain and would soon be well, but it
grew worse and the doctor then said 1
had rheumatism. It continued to grow
worse and I could hardly get around to
work. I went to a drug store and the
druggist recommended me to try Cham
berlain's Pain Balm. I tried it and one
half of a 50 ceut bottle cured me entire
ly. I now_ recommend it to all my
friends.—F. "A. BABCOCK, Erie, Pa. For
