HEADQUARTERS FOR THE PRACTICAL CHRISTMAS BUYER
Five years ago when Carl F.
Zeeck was here from Manilla,
taking a vacation after three
years soldiery under Uncle Sam
in the Philipines, and attachment
sprung up between him and Miss
Grace Highsmith, which had rip-
ened into love before his return
to service in that far away coun-
try. He told her the old old
story and was accepted five years
ago, and faithful to their engage-
ment they have been all these
The second chapter scene, is
the home of J. B. Barnes on
Washington street, this city.
Time, last Sunday at 1 o’clock p.
m. Rev. George A. Curlee in an
impressive but brief ceremony,
spoke the words which made the
two loyal sweethearts, one. Mr.
and Mrs. Zeeck left for Dallas
on the eastbound train an hour
later to spend a few days. Then
they will retm and visit with his
folks near Lingleville and rela-
tives here a few weeks before de-
parting for Manilla, their future
The groom is a* son of Mrs.
Julia A. Zeeck of Lingleville.
His father was district clerk of
this ccAinty at the time of his
death. Mr. Zeeck is connected
with the treasury department of
the Custom House in Manilla.
The bride is a niece of Mrs. J.
B. Barnes, with whom she has
lived since her seventh year, and
that good aunt may well feel
proud of her work, for it is a
well known fact that she has
reared, in Miss Grace, one of the
loveliest characters in this city.
They love one another as de-
votedly as though the tie be-
tween them was that of mother
and daughter. Likewise has the
fair girl been esteemed by every
member of the’ family, and she
stands high in the estimation of
all who have known her these
