seems that the young isady in the case,
Miss Edna Laverne Taylor, was sent
htere under protest just after the hli-
days by her parents in order to sepr-
Ae44 r fromn the groom, Mr. Jonas
Strom. Miss Taylor cones of an ex-
cellent family in Pendleton, Ind.; Mr.
Stroni tas in the oil business in the
nieighboring town of Aderson, but
Miss Edna was the ltuciest strike hie
ever made. The yong couple had
known acti otiir for iabout two years
and hid tbeenI goinig with eacti other
occasiona~ily, bil oly a few months
ago didi the bride's psrents thiuk any-
thn-g serious was ominig of it. Thlei
for sotne naonitatle reasoi thy'
tok a violemt dislike to Mr. Strom.
Tlie result was ilat one evening the
young lady wats otiiit to prepare for
a long journey. She obedietly made

slightly distracted from study. These'
Visits wee repea ted at intervals of
two weeks until abot a fortnight ago
Mr. Strom announced that he was
aibout to accept a position with the
Clalifornila Oil Co. and journey to San
Francisco. This news was like a
thunder clap out of a clear sky to the
-Young lady, ut she resolved to follow
the wishes of her parents and wat a
year beore marrying. So the young
Tman returned to his home heavy-
he arted to nake prearations for his
trip. Before leaving, however, he
told Miss- Taylor to telegraph him if
she changeil her mind, and she could
accompany him as his wife to the land
of sunshine and flowers.

The Wrong Henry
A very amusing comedy in rah ie
was eniacted at ote of the sorority
houses last week, tle details of whichm
have just leaked not. It was a kind
of a 'What Happted to Jones' or
'The Wrong Sr. 'Wright' affair Thee
was a mistaken identutty resulting rom
at mix-up in names, in which several
people prominent in tUuiversty life
were cnesred
It seems that a young man whose
last name wis Henry arrived here
with (be Illnois track team aturday
morning and hmmedatey poceeded to
call up hy 'phone a sorority girl who
had formerly attended Ilnohs. The
piano was thumping at one end of the
line, thus making it dfficult for either
;pary to hear, "My name Is Heny
'saidth young man from "Ill."
Now the young lady who answred
tbs 'phone hapened t have a frne
who.se first nmae aas Henry, so she
answered bak, '"Wel, tIhkmow -but
ome iciniy tere. tHoavre you?"'
Thus twa-a thu.t the young lady made
a date to go ridimg inthle afte-rmooni
with the wromgiHemnry.
Now it so chancmedithat au-lenIHeniry
frommiIllintois srove up, the girl with
wshorl te suppouusut ie had halkei to
wa-st taking the air omi the piaz.
Site was ofn course surprised to see
huim, but when he sad, 'Well, an't
you gointg ridig with me' she
amnswered "yes," so quiky it ainmost
took his breath away,
Amdi t it taid the oiler young lauy
who tught she was to have a finme
drive hIsmalting yst, and It is cetinmly
"up to" thus other Hsry.
