acres of wheat brings the farmer
$2,260 and he has 10 acres of his

Annie Schmidt, a young lady

here on purpose to wed the man
of her choice. Michael Sherman.
Mike, while having an Irish front

Teutonic stock and so does Annie
as her last name implies. The
couple met but recently, and then
met but once. Mike heard that
Annie was waiting for a man to
come along and Mike took the
train and went out to her home.
Annie liked Mike's good natured
looking phiz and when Mike said
"Annie, will you take me for bet
ter or for worse?" She could not
help but reply as her heart went
pitty-pat, "Audi-Louie. 1 will
take you for worse.v But Mike
is not such a "worse"' fellow. He
has a fine farm near Foxholm
and is industrious. The Inde
pendent extends to the couple in
advance, its congratulations.
Miss Sigmanski Dead.
Miss Sigmanski was brot down from
Portal September 13th very ill of con
sumption of the bowels. As she was
not accompanied by friends, and as she
had no money, she was placed in the
hospital as a county charge. When it
became known that she had but a short
time to live, her lover was notified and
he arrived a day or so before her death.
He did everything he could to make
things comfortable for his intended
prior to her death, and saved her from
being buried by the county. Miss Sig
manski was a good Christian young
woman about 24 years of age, a member
of the Catholic church. Sunday after
noon, shortly before her death, several
ladies of the church went to the hos
pital and prayed for her. The priest
heard her confession in the morning
shortly before she became unconscious.
