Julius Brager saw the dummy and young Lenhoff remarknl "It look* like you.” Now. that vvas an uncalled for and |raiher hurting remark, as the only similarity Nas that two sticks prop ped the fiffure up, and Brager took It to mean that the sticks represented crutches. He did not doubt for a moment that the dummy was placed In front of the store lo wound his feelings and he then rcsolvrd on vengeance and had a case docketed against the Lenkoffs at police station. The matter was aired In court today, many amusing Incidents being brought out. Mr. Prager insisted that the dummy was made to represent him and the Len koffs insisted that it was only to show off the garments for salo. "Bring forth the dummy,” demand ed Judye Baxter. The dummy was produced. It was a small affair and why any one could seo any resemblance be tween it and the prosecutor in the place seemed si range. The offending sticks that had propped It up were missing. Mr. Russell of Russell & R ncnfleld, the attorneys, represented the Lenk offs. He made a brief argument, say ing the charge against his client was a viola ion of the eighteenth, and while that section was quite an elas tic one. he knew, and “could catch ’em coming and going,” he had never heard of dummies being mentioned tn it." Judge Baxter agreed with him, and said he could not see where any viola tion cf ruction 18 had been made. He therefore dismissed the case. Prager lefi the court saying that lie would kill Letrkoff If a< more dum mies were made. “Judge, I opr afraid to leave court, after what that, man said,” remarked Lenkoff. in » frightened voire. “Well, If he assaults and kills you, j make a ease against him.” answered the judge, add Lrrkoff, with the of-' tending dummy uadej his arm, left! the court rooru, ' IV M*f*.

A correspondent write* from Rome: Mr. Hoisted Smith, Jr., son of City Clerk Halsted Smith, and Miss Bonnie M (thins Foster, the cha?ruing 18 year (>ld daughter of Colonel and Mrs, John IC. Foster, were married here at the resld-.uiee of Mr. and Mrs. George F. Chedaey, yesterday morning, at 8 o'clock. Rev. C. Buckner Hudgins, of j St. Peter's Episcopal church, official i Ing. j The wedding was a rather romantic j affair, and the history of the courtship j and marriage of these popular young people makes an Interesting story. It seems that there was another pop ular young Roman seeking the favor of Miss Foster, but, as there were pa rental objections, he had solicited the assistance of young Smith with the charming young lady. Smith proved an excellent ally for a while, but he himself became enamor ed of the charms of the young lady. The sequel Is not surprising. A few days ago Miss Foster went to ! Lyerly, alsiut 30 miles north of here, Ito visit relative*. Sunday Mr. Smith I went up to Lyerly to call. S He was pleasantly received In <he home where Mlbs Foster was a guest. Monday evening they decided to mar ry at once, and so, under pretense of taking a moonlight ride, they 1 'ft the home where Miss Foster was visiting, drove through the country to Rome, ar riving here early yesterday morning. I The went to the home of Mr. Ohld !ney, who was a mutual friend, and the securing of the services of Dr. Hud ' gins was a matter of only a few mo ments. The young people later in the day made the marriage public, and are now pleasantly domiciled at the home of Mr. Smith's father on South Broad street. Colonel Foster was Informed of the marriage soon after it occurred and for gave the young people, and happiness new reigns supreme. Mr. Smith is the son of City Glerk Smith and has quite a large number of friends In Rome, who heartily congtat ulate him upon the bride he lias won. A Tactful Retort.
