Watson officiating Madrid wedding

Dr. Samuel N. Watson, grandson of the Rev. George Watson, D.D., a former pastor of St. Paul's Episcopal Church of this city, and cousin of the Misses Lida and Charlotte Watson, now rector of Holy Trinity Church in Paris, will, June 7, officiate at a notable wedding in Madrid, when Kermit Roosevelt will be united in marriage to Miss Belle Wyatt Willard, daughter of the American ambassador to Madrid.

Girl gone, friends mystified

Hazel Fackler, pretty 16-year-old girl of Chicago Junction, is mysteriously missing and her father and friends are greatly alarmed.

Saturday evening, the night of Declaration Day, Hazel, with half a dozen girl friends, went down town in the village. Suddenly Hazel was missing. Her companions were nonplussed and after a short time gave up the search for her.

She did not return to her home that night and Sunday her father, Adam Fackler, a widower, and whose competent housekeeper she was, started in search of her. Not a trace can be found. No trace of her leaving town on either the trolley or steam roads nor in any other method has been discovered.

She lived happily with her father in the Spangler addition at the edge of town. Small and lithe, she is counted as one of the town's prettiest girls. She has dark hair and sparkling blue eyes. Her weight is said to be no more than 100 pounds.

No love affair lends any light to the mystery. Her friends scoff at any suggestion that the girl may have been kidnapped by strangers with white slave intent, but the fact remains that her disappearance is hourly causing more apprehension.

C.A. Paul has new Stearns

Charles A. Paul returned from Cleveland last evening with a new 1914 five passenger Stearns automobile. It is a handsome car and one that is manufactured by his brother-in-law, Frank A. Stearns.
