SCH00L-1IAV COURTSHIP. Mirrlife of Mis Anna Curry and Jonathan J. Riyhlll, a Brilliant Affair. In the presence of a company that tilled the First Methodist Kplscopal church, and amidst environments of the most pleasing and altractlvechar actcr, a very Impressive wedding was solemnlrcd al ,1:30 In the afternoon of January 31, the contracting parties being Miss Anna Helen, the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Curry, and Jonathan J., son of Charles II. Ha.ihlll, both, of this city, and Is the liadpyculmlnatloii of "happy school days," al the Oregon High school. When her engagement was an nounced during the holidays It was received by her friends and especially by the "Fudge Club," with much e grct because of the destiny which must take her permanently from Ore gon. Hut Cupid's darts are love's summons, and plans were at once laid fur a series of social escnts In her honor. The brilliancy of the wedding de tails were never excelled In our little city. The handsome auditorium of the church had been elaborately and artistically decorated for the occasion and presented a liarmoul.lug of colorings of an umisally attrac tive appearance. The altar was heav ily banked with palms and ferns, and potted plants, and Southern smllax, whose solid color eltect was relieved by the brighter hues of the exquisite Mowers, Hopes of evergreen swung gracefully fruni the pulpit loft to the four corners of the pulpll. Hack of the choir stand, the wall was latticed with Southern smllax, tied with pink Klllarney rases. The ushers, Mr. William It. Curry, of Indianapolis, Ind., a brother of the bride, and William Moore, and George Zellcr, of this city, seated tho guests on arrival, and nearly 400 wero present when the hour for the cere mony arrived. The seats In the front center section, reserved for the rela tives, were designated by broad bands of pink and blue satin ribbon tied In large bows at the pew ends and en closing the seats reserved, Preceding the entry of the bridal party, Mr. Grorge StelnmcU, of St. Joseph, a cousin of the bride, sang most acceptably. "I Loe You Tru ly" and "O, I'erfect Love." He was accompanied on the piano by Miss 'Inn Hragg. The entrance of the bridal party was very Impressive, and was herald ed by the strains of the wedding march from "Lohengrin," Miss Hragg presiding al the Instrument. The bride's maids, Misses Ina and Mae Hot kin and Trot King, school-day chums of the bride, entered the church at long distances In perfect lime, and proceeded to the east aisle. They were gowned alike In blue charmeiise with tunics of blue chllTon edged with pink roses, the gowns were made with trains. The maids wore black picture hats with bridles fastened with pink roses, und carried arm bouquets of Klllarney roses. Following the bride's maids In equi distances came the ushers, who moved to the west aisle, and the sex tette moved down their respective aisles, with a poise that truly made an Inspiring picture not soon to be forgotten. On approaching tho altar, the ministers arose and took their po sition Immediately to tho front of tho altar, and tho attendants took their respective positions to the right and left of them. Miss Mary Zook, a cousin of the bride, as maid of honor, then entered, and passed down the west aisle. She was gowned In pink meteor with bodice and tunic of blue beaded net. Tho dress was made with train, She wore a black picture hat with bridle, fastened with pink roses, and carried a shower bou quet of Klllarney roses, thus the at tendants carried out to its fullness the bride's color scheme, blue and pink. Follow lug tho maid of honor came the bride, who moved down the west aisle, and us she approached the altar she was met by the groom, and his best man, Dr. Sherman llihbard, of Kansas City, who entered from the pulpit door. Anna Curry, the bride, whomwuhavu known from her era il lo to tho altar, never before hi her life looked moro lovely: save perhaps when she dressed In her llrst long dress. On this most Joyous occasion she wore a gown of cream white char meiise, with bodice and draped tunic of shadow lace. Tho girdle and long train wero held In place at waist line by pearl ornaments. She woro a bri dal veil wltli wreath of lilies or tho valley, and carried a shower bouquet of bride's roses and lilies of the val ley. Tho groom and his best ' man and ushers wore I'rlnce Albert coats, gray trousers with tics and gloes to match. At the altar the attendants and ministers In semi-circle faced the au dience, while the bride and groom, the maid of honor and groomsman faced the pulpit, and tho marriage was Impressively performed. Tho full ritual of the Methodist Kplscopal church was employed, and the words uniting these two souls with but a single thought, two hearts that beat as one, was performed by Hcv. T. K. Arnholdt, of St. Joseph, a cousin of the bride, wlio was assisted by the bride's pastor, Hcv. .1. II. Thompson. During the ceremony Miss Hragg softly plajed the march from Lohen grin, and upon the benediction being pronounced, struck up the Mendel ssohn, towhlch the party retired from the church by couples by the east aMe. The couple and attendants, followed by relatives ami the more Intimate friends, repaired to the home of the bride's parents, where hearty con gratulations wero extended the happy pair, after which a rellshable lunch ton was served. The bride Is the only girl In the family of Mr. and Mrs, Curry, and by this wedding a vacancy In the home will come, that will be hard to lie come reconciled to; hut It seems to be the divine law that girls will marry and leave all others dear, tor the ap ple of her eje-but why should they and her kindred and friends w Mi this for her? Is It not after all, the true life for her, or for any woman She was born and reared In our little city, and was educated In our school from the primary to the High school, from which she graduated In IIHH, and also a graduate of the Northwestern uni versity, of Kvanston, In lid'.'. During the school year 1012-M.1 she was a member of our High school faculty, and since the time uplo her marriage her time has been given to those stu dies and things that might equip her best to llll the position that wlllcome to her by reason of her new relation, ship In life. When quite young she Identities herself with the M. K. church, and haseverbeen a worker In the church, and most earnest and sue rtssf ul Sunday school worker: a life embodying all tho most beautiful' Christian attributes. A leader in so cial and literary circles; of the high est Ideals, and greatly beloved for many beautiful traits of character. She presented each of her maids with a friendship circle pin. The groom lias U'cn known here from hid school days, and was reared upon tlie farm, but since his gradua tion has been mostly in the West, where lie wasln a responsible position with the Wells-Fargo Kxpress com pany at Seattle, Wash. A young man of splendid phjslqiic, und sterling qualities, und pure life. He is popu lar and numbers his friends by his ac quaintances. Ills gift to his attend. ams was a friendship circle stickpin. They begin life together under the most auspicious circumstances, and their many friends will Join In wish ing them a happy union. May their pathway of life be strewn with the Mowers of. successaud happiness, trust ing ever that they may grow younger as they grow older. The popularity of this young couple, and the esteem in which they are held, were attested by the bridal gifts, tho array of which was one of the handsomest and most useful ever seen In our little city. They left on the .V.'lft evening train for a brief honeymoon to Kansas City. Humming to this city, they will pack their effects and hie away lo Mllo, Vernon county, this state, where the couple will begin life to gether on a farm, and the groom will Hud In that wife a true help-mate In the broadest and most comprehensi ble sense. Tho out-of-town guests, attending the wedding reception, were: Will H, Curry, Indianapolis, India na; Mrs. J. C. 1'ltts and sister, Mrs. I'erd Cramptou, Dr. Sherman mil liard, of Kansas City: Adolph Stein nietz, George Stelnmet. and wife, Miss Anna Flegenbaum, Ljdla Gut knecht, Itov. T. K.

Consolidation of the News and Jeff crsonian of Mound City, a Good Move. Tho two pipers at Mound City, The JetTersonlan and The News, have consolidated, and with this week's Issue the News will become hyphe nated under the title of the News Jelfersonlan, and the proprietor of the News, Mr. W. II. Mills, becomes the owner. I tot 1 1 Mr. Mickey and Mr. Mills became convinced of the Heedlessness of two papers at that city, and the result was that they got together and made a deal satisfac tory to both. The News.Jc!Tcrsonlan will occupy the Jelfersonlan building: and Mr. Mickey lias not yet decided us to the future, bin wants to continue In the newspaper buslueis some where. Among tho many excellent reasons given by Mr. Mills for the consolida tion he s.i): "The day of numerous small news paper plants is waning. The cost of producing a good newspaper, such as the people rightfully demand today, has practically doubled within the past ten jtars. The printer whoso work now costs the publisher lift per per week could have been hired for 8 to (10; the whltu paper that could have been bought ten jears ago for (l.fto per cwt now costs Ll.no, And In like proportion the cost of opera tion of newspaper plants have In creased throughout the various Items. "The Iwo newspapers maintained two expensive plants; paid rent on two buildings; hired two forces of printers; four times eacli day sent two reporters to the depot to gather local news Items, and so on through tho entire business. When the pa pers came out, Just about the same news Items appeared, and yet some one had to pay for this double ser vlco and It was the patrons of the papers who were doing so." The history or the JetTersonlan shows many changes, and these changes sustains the position taken by Mr. Mills, and the conclusions ar rived al by both Mr. Mills and Mr. Mickey. The JetTersonlan Is the out growth of the Mound City Times, established In January 18W), by Messrs. Carr ti Curnutt. In IU2, Mr. Curnutt sold to Mr. Carr and In lsvift W. S. Dray, now of Savannah, became associated with Mr. Carr, and the year following, I:mi, Mr. Carr bought Mr. Dray's Interest. In September, I8')7, a syndicate composed of George lloltom, as pres. Idem, and others, purchased the Times plant, ami also the Holt County Democrat, ami the Craig Courier -all of Democratic persuasion and launched forth "The Jelfer sonlan.'' Klder Craig, a minis ter of the Christian church at Craig, and Interested In the Craig Courier, was Installed as editor; Kil. S. Hajesas business manager, and Wm. Carr and John M. Ilasness In charge of tho mechanical department all these wero llnancially Interested In some of these consolidated plants. In lBtw, J. L. Mlnton became the manager, and K. S. Tyson the editor, who held the tripod until December, WOO, when he retired for J. 0. Lig gett. Ho was superceded a ear af terwards by K. T. Fraker, and the following j ear, December 2ft, Hhi2, J. L. Mlnton became the editor. Tho stock concern did not prove either satisfactory or harmonious, and it resulted In a sale of the plant to P. S. Moores, who took charge of the plant In January, Hkis. Mr. Moores sold to Kd, Martindalu in August, lli7, and Mr. F. S. Mickey became the owner In January, I'.ios, February l, lull, the Jelfersonlan ceased publication, consolidating with the Mound City News, with Howard Mills as the owner of tho Mound City News-JolTcrsoulan. Tho Mound City News was estab-Hsbe-I by G. J. & J. W. Spencer, In August, 1S7U. Thoy sold to I'. .I. Spencer & It. Drink In July, l-Sl. They continued Its publication until January, 18S.7; when J M. Ilasness and Illrum Ilershberger became the owners. In lssil, Kd. II, King bought thu Ilershberger Interest. In lewi, Mr, Ilasness sold to W. K. John anil In May, 1WI7, O. II. King, now the owner of the Maltland Herald, bought Mr. John's Interest. In January, HW2, Wesley King bought O. It's In terest, who took il back In February, llioft. On Septomber il, llion, tho two King brothers, K. K, and O, It,, sold the plant to J, U, Harrows, who con ducted tho paper until May, wou, when lie sold to thu present owner, Howard W. Mills. May you live long and prosper. Tho Urst paper however, ever pub lished In Mound City, was tho Spy, established by George Howman, a brother of C. W. How man, who es tablished Tim Sr.NTiNia. Tho llrst Issue of the Spy was dated July 2, 1874. The plant was moved to Gra ham by Mr. Howman In July, 1875, and L. M. May came along and on October 17, I87ft, established the "Mound City Globe." In July, lfi7, Kd. Anlbal bought the plant, and It suspended In January, 1877. In June, l877,the paper was revived by Messrs. Hall f: McPhcrson, and In January, 1871, li In-came the property of (J. K. , Karnes. In June of thai )ear It cllmU'd the golden stairway. In l"7!i came the News, and It Is still with us, and may II ever be so. Rural Credits. Administration rural credit bills wero Introduced simultaneously In the Senate and House, Thursday of last week by Senator Fletcher, of Florida, and Iteprcsentatlve Moss, of Indiana. The bills am for long-term farm loans. Kills for short-term loans will he Introduced later. The measures would establish In the Treasury Department a Kurcau of Farm Land Hanks under the di rection of a commissioner, and make provision for the formation of such hanks In any statu under federal charter and federal Inspection. Any group of farmers within a state might organlre co-operative farm land banks, with power to Issue bonds to raise funds from distant money markets for farm develop ment. Operations of the Individual banks would ho confined within state lines, though supervision will lie fed eral, owing to tho variety of state laws bearing upon land titles, taxa tion, foreclosure and like subjects. The banks would be strictly prohib ited from doing "a city business." Loans to farmers would not exceed .VI per cent of the value of Improved laudator extend moro than thirty-live years. No Institution could begin business without a foundation capital and double liability provided for nat ional banks. The amount of long term business, which might be un dertaken by any of the proposed hank, could not exctrd tlfteen limes the amount of paid up share capital and surplus. They might accept any iay Interests on deposits not exceed ing fto per cent of capital and surplus and receive deposits of postal savings funds to the same extent, Worth Knowing.
