Saturday evening Mr Ferdinand Bergmann and Miss Minnie Schmidt were married by Justice Bold and in consequence several prominent business men in Shawano smiled faintly and were compelled in words of the nineteenth century to "cough up." It happened in this way. Several evenings ago several men were standing in Mr. Weinig's store and the conversation in some way took a matrimonial drift. Mr. Bergmann was "jollied" by all the Benedicts present and someone suggested that he couldn't get married if he wanted. "Is that so?" quietly inquired Mr. Bergmann. "Why of course it's so," said one. "Why, if you will get married I will give you a first class cooking stove." "Yes, and I'll provide a quarter of beef," said a prominent butcher. Then a furniture dealer promised a sofa, a grocery man a sack of flower, and everybody became suddenly and unaccountably generous in promising articles on a condition that each was confident would never be filled. As for Mr. Bergmann, like "Br'er Fox he lay low, an' ain't sayin' nothin'." After the marriage ceremony was over, Mr. Bergmann invited his friends to meet his wife and it was not until then that the generous business men realized that it was a sure case of "horses on them."
