fine little girl and has many friends in Seney. If she is persevering
in her efforts to gain an education, she will find many a helping hand
along the way.
The Christmas concert, "Telephoning Santa Claus" was a grand success.
It was somewhat out of the usual order of Christmas entertainments, but
was full of practical points. Lafe March, who presided at the
telephone, and Will Cook, who represented Santa Claus, deserve special
mention. Probably the best thing of all was the song of Bobbie McFlynn,
the street waif, by little Willie Kennedy. Everybody was remembered by
chromo boxes filled with candy and nuts.
La Grippe still lingers in the vicinity.
The wedding of Miss Addie Brown with Mr. Moore was a quiet affair, none
but the near relatives of the happy pair were present. We learn that
the bride was attired in a tasteful costume of brown silk, and that she
looked very lovely and self possessed during the solemn ceremony which
was performed by Rev. Sudduth. An elegant repast followed the hearty
congratulations. Mr. and Mrs. Moore are at home in Seney, where they
will receive their friends.
Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Anstine have been spending the holidays with
relatives and friends away from Seney.
On New Year's day indications of a leaky flue in the church were

HOW THEY WERE POUNDED
One of the most pleasant events of the season was the pound party Friday
evening at the home of Rev. J. E. Snowden. The affair was a complete
surprise to the good people and happened about as follows: Mr. and Mrs. T.
M. Zink invited the family to their home to tea. Rob. Snowden stood in on
the deal, and after tea excused himself to go and open up the house. About
8 o'clock, Mr. Zink began to excuse himself and wife and made the remarkable
statement that they had an unexpected invitation to go out for the evening
and if they could be excused they would go. Of course, Mr. Snowden was
surprised to think that he had forgotten his fire for so long a time. He
would go home at once. Mr. and Mrs. Zink were going that way, so walked
along. When Mr. Snowden opened his door, a glare of light was turned on and
revealed the house packed with guests and presents in pound lots. The
presents were many and good. One consisted of a pound of silver dollars,
another a pound of pennies, and others too numerous to mention.
The affair was so adroitly planned and executed that it was a thorough
surprise to the worthy pastor and his wife. The evening was spent in social
converse and speech making.
A HAPPY WEDDING
The splendid St. Joseph's Catholic church was filled with guests this
morning to witness the marriage of Miss Mary Draudt, daughter of Mr. and
Mrs. John Draudt, to Mr. John Sauer. The ceremony was set for nine o'clock,
and promptly at the hour named, the wedding party marched down the aisle to
the strains of Mendelssohn's Bartholdy. The bride was attired in heliotrope
silk with point lace and wore Marchal Niel roses. Upon their arrival at the
alter, they were made man and wife according to the beautiful ring ceremony
of the Catholic church, by Rev. H. J. Meis, pastor. Miss Helen Sauer
attended the bride, and wore a pretty silk gown trimmed in lace and roses.
Mr. John Nuesse made a handsome groomsman. After the ceremony the happy
bridal party retired to the triumphal strains of a march from Waguer's
Tannhauser. A reception will be given at the home of the bride's parents,
beginning at six o'clock this evening.
Both the bride and groom are well known in LeMars; the former for her
sweetness of disposition and many loveable traits, and the latter for his
sterling manhood and strict attention to business.
