Pleasure to SWELL WEDDING AT ST. MICHAEL’S CATHOLIC CHURCH THURSDAY MORNING. Mr. Frank A. Wolfhope and Miss Anas= tasia Cordial the Principals. St. Michael’s Catholic church was the scene of a pretty wedding Thurs day morning June Gth, at 9 o’clock, at which time Mr. Frank A. Wolfhope, of Cumberland, and Miss Annie R. -Cordial, of Eckhart, were united in marriage, Rev. S. J. Clarke holding nuptial high mass and performing the ceremony. The bride was attired in a very pretty gown of pearl silk rpouseline over white silk, and wore orange blos soms. Miss Julia C. Cordial, sister of the bride, was bridesmaid and wore pink silk mouseline and carried pink car nations. The groom, and Mr. Joseph Mans field, of Piedmont, his attendant, wore the customary black. . Messrs. Alex G. Close and John and William Davis, of Eckhart, and James Barrett and Dannie Mullen, of this city, were the ushers. Little Misses Josie and Angela Davis, nieces of the bride, carried the bride’s boquet of bridal roses. The church was filled with admir ing friends present to witness the beautiful ceremony of the Catholic marriage. Among those present were ninety school children of Eckhart, who at one time or another were pupils of the bride. Prof. Wolfhope is well and favorably known throughout western Maryland astheformer assistant principal of the Central Commercial College, Cumberland. Mrs. Wolfhope is known as the popular assistant principal of the Eckhart public school during the past few years. She has a charming personality that has gained for her a host of friends. At the conclusion of the nuptial high mass, the happy couple were driven immediately to the home of the bride’s sister, Mrs. Edward Davis, at Eckhart, where a delicious breakfast was served at 11:30 o’clock. Those present were: Mr. and Mrs. Henry Wolfhope, parents of the groom; Mrs, Ileixer and Miss Wolfhope, of New Baltimore, Pa.; Prof. C.

That the way of the Mayor and City Council is not always strewn with roses was never more clearly demon strated than it has been during the past week. At the first regular meeting of the new council a few weeks ago, three new assessors were appointed and instruct ed to begin work immediately in the matter of assessing city property. Instructions were also forthcoming to the effect that the assessors should “assess at the actual value” of prop erty. In other words the idea was to not assess all horses at the same price, all pianos, etc., at the same price, as has been customary, but rather to assess any individual piece of property at what that piece is worth. The assess ors according to instructions, assessed as their best judgment dictated, and as a natural result the assessments in many cases were considerably higher than ever before. Last Monday evening was the time set for “an appeal session,” at which session those persons who were dissat istied witli their assessment might give any reason why it should be changed. But the council counted without their host, for there were so many kicks coming that tlie meeting was continued during the next day and evening and finally on through the week. In several instances the assessment was lowered. Some remarkable things were de veloped in the course of the appeals. In one instance a piece of property was assessed at SSOO more than the owner had asked for it recently. In another instance the council voted to assess a man’s property SIOO less than he was willing to swear it was worth. The council and assessors Lave come in for a great deal of censure in the matter, but whether or not it is de served will probably be developed later. It is a very difficult matter to satisfy the entire public in a matter of this kind, and it is also not impossi ble for public officials to make mis takes. Another Mine Accident, Late Thursday afternoon Patrick Tigue who resides on west Union street met with an aociaent that will lay him up for some time.
