From the Anita Tribune we learn
"of the death of Mr. Jacob Houck,
which occurred at his home, in
Dexter, Iowa, a few days ago. Years
ago Mr. Houck conducted a black
smith shop in Exira, and his son,
Chet, married Miss Blanche Har
denbrook. daughter of Jtfr, and Mrs.
George Hardenbrook, formerly of
this city but now residing down at
Arapahoe, Oklahoma.
An exchange says that several'ot
the married ladies of that town
were gathered together and were
comparing the smart traits of their
offsprings. One said that her little
girl talked when she was a year old,
another said that her little boy
could say papa and mama when he
was ten months old. A cranky old
bachelor, who was in the next room
trying to read "chipped in" and
6a~id, that that wasn't anything very
wonderful, that he had read in the
bible that Jacob cursed the day
that he was Jorn. Then all was
still, the ladies were gone.
Last Tuesday, November 20,1900,
as the hand of the old hall clock
pointed to the hour of high twelve
a number of relatives and intimate
friends gathered at the home of Mr.
Seth Hartzell, up in Greeley town
ship, to witness the marriage of
that gentleman's daughter, "Miss
Maggie Hartzell, to Mr. Edward Bas
comb. As soon as the man of God
had pronounced the words that
made them husband and wife the
.assembled guests and the wedding
party sat down to one of those coun
try dinners that fairly made the
legs of the old table benL so heavy
was the weight of good things to
eat, and then the rest of the day was
given over to sociability and good
cheer. The bride has grown to
womanhood upon her father's farm,
in Greeley, and losing her mother
while quite young she has been
thoroughly drilled in the duties of
housekeeping* and possesses all the
graces of heart and hand that go to
make the noblest of all God's crea
tures, a true woman. Besides her
domestic duties she has perfected
-her mind, and is one of the most
successful school teachers in ihe
county. The groom is not widely
known hereabouts,hehavingtaught
school in Greeley some time ago
but now, in company with one of
the Hartzell boys, has established a
law practice in North Dakota. We
,have not the honor of hie acquaint
ance but unhesitatingly set him
down as a man among men, and all
tl\at that name implies, else he nev-'
er could have won so fair a bride as
he did. We join with the multitude
of the bride's friends in wishing
them all the happiness vouchsafed
-to us poor mortals while traveling
upon this terrestrial ball.
