A SAGE BRUSH WF.DDING
Correspondent Writei of Marriage
of Country Couple
Our sago brush correspondent
chronicles the marriage of two of
the poplar young people of Wood
tick Corners and in the following
lines tells of the event:
Wo herewith chronicle the mar
riage of Miss Elol e Perkins with
Mr.. Guthrie Sardine, two of this
section's worthy young people, that
took place at the village blacksmith
shop on Tuesday evening, April 29.
They were united In holy macaroni
by tho justice of the peas. Tho
btido looked hansome in a biz bo-
key of sage brush iprlnkled with
ticks and woro chlfoniere silk stock
ings and carried a train of srunnv
sacking. Tho groom wore the con-
vential Woodtick Corners gtfrb a
suit of "can't break 'cm overalls"
and carried an almanac. The bride
was very bashful but looked stunning
when (he stood along side of her
seventh choice, who furnished the
ring as well as tho kale and several
packages of No Cough Cigarettes,
Tho parents of the bride are wealthy
cone gathers, and have retired after
accumulating a large supply of cones, !
which they will use for fuel.
ine justice gave the ncwlyweds
some whoIcsoRi advice- and sug
gested that the bride content' her
self with her latest husband and not
go ramlng about the country looking
for more conquests.
Prof. Squeeze, the eminent mouth
harpient plryed Midalsohn's wedding
march as the happy couple approach
ed the anvil, and this, while rather
ancient, filled in the gap caused by
the groom having gone after a shot
of iBBen, his brldc-to-be having to
wait his return. As the . wedding
ceremony progressed the professor
broke into a new tune "I J.carnt
About Women. From Her" which
seemed- like twitting on facta.
After a few tears 'and. harty
hand-shakes "the bride and groom
left In Andy Squash's old Ford for
Coney Island where they will spend
a few days looking at the coons and
subsisting on goobers.
This weeding cleans out all eligi
ble girls and fellows from Woad
tick Corners, so vjoH have to wait
for the eomtng generation for more
marriages in this neck of the woods.

Home From Seattle
' Miss Sammy Creighton, who has
been at Seattle for some time, with
here sister, Mrs. J. J. Kehoo, and
little daughter, arrived in Maupin
Tuesday afternoon for a week's
stay with their parent", Mr. and
Mrs. Arthur Creighton. Arthur thus
has his first peek at his little grand
daughter, and is strutting around
like a turkey gobbler, soproud is he.

We heard a story last week con
cerning a restaurant man who cen
sured his cook for dishing up too
large an "order to each customer.
The cook took exception to the state
ment and rather than nllow a cu to
mer to leave the place hungry pro
ceeded t0 hang up his apron and
quit his job.
That a check is a good receipt was
shown here recently:. A man had
rented a house and paid his rent by
check. When he moved from the
house he was confronted with the
statement that one month's rent was
due. The renter went home, dug
up his cancelled check-, found all
those marked "rent" and conclusive
ly showed that he was not owing a
cent, as claimed by the house owner.
The morsel of this is Pay by check,
thus securing a receipt.

We have argued against mail or
der hou es, contending that v when
money is sent thereto that money is
lost to our community. The same
argument will apply to merchants
sending to Portland for their bread
and pastry. The Oregon bakery Of
The Dalles is putting out a superior
quality of goods and the effort. to
replace : uch with Portland made
products savors a great deal of mail
order business. By patronizing The
Dalles bread factory the money
stays in Wasco county. The Ore
gon bakery pays heavy taxes where
as the Portland concerns taxes art
paid in another ounty. The people
employed in The Dalles bakery live
in Wasco ewntv pay taxes here and
