PAULS VALLEY DEMOCRAT
PAULS VALLEY, GARVIN COUNTY, OKLAHOMA, THURSDAY, JULY 15, 1915.
The consideration of the Ger-
man reply to the American note
which was received at Washing-
ton Saturday is not satisfactory,
and it is overshadowing all other
questions in official and diplo-
matic circles at the capital. The
reply in substance is:
First: Riterated assurance
that American ships engaged in
legitimate trade will not be in
terfered with nor the lives of
Americans upon neutral ships be
Second: That German sub-
marines will be instructed to al-
low American passenger ships to
pass freely and safely, Germany
entertaining in return the con
• rident hope that the American
Government will see that these
ships do net carry contraband,
such ships to be provided with
distinguishing marks and their
arrival announced a reasonable
time in advance. The same pri
vilege is extended to a reason-
able number of neutral ships un
der the American flag and should
the number of ships thus avail
able for passenger service prove
inadequate Germany is willing to
permit America to place four
hostile passenger steamers un
der the American flag to ply be
tween North America and Eu-
rope under the same conditions.
The reply for the second time
evades responsibility for the
Lusitania disaster, and places re-
strictions upon freedom of the
seas to American commerce.
President Wilson is at his sum-
mer home in' New Hampshire,

note will not be ready for sever-

A wedding characterized by an
elegant and charming simplicity
was that of Miss Jewel Bond and
Mr. Ruie Suggs, of Oklahoma
City on Monday evening at the
residence of the bride's brother
and sister, Mr. and Mrs. Frank
N. Preuit. All the world loves a
sweet, unaffected girl, such as
Miss Bond was, and the wedding
on the pretty lawn, which looked
like a spring garden abloom for
the happy occasion, was express-
ive of the nature of the dear lit-
tle bride who trustingly gave her
troth to the man of her choice
The scene was indeed charm
ing. Japanese lanterns softened
the lights from many electric
bulbs. Beds of daisies with th>":
sunkissed crowns bursted into *
glorious profusion of snowy pe-
tals, while the air was redolent
with the fragrance of sweet peas
Near the front doorway two
hearts pierced by Cupid's dart,
were fashioned of pretty green-
ery, with the initials B. and S.
formed of daisies. Here Mrs.
Preuit received her guests, as-
sisted by Mrs. Froman Grant.
The flower laden piano was
stationed on the front porch. Be-
fore the ceremony Mr. Tom Con
ner sweetly sang, "I Love You
Truly" with Miss Lotie Bond
; at the piano. To the strains of
the Lohengrin wedding march,
with Mrs W, R. Wallace at the
piano, the bridal party passed
through the front door way,
■down the steps and along the
pathway to an arch formed of
feathery greenery. Rev Wra Den
ham came first and took his
place a little behind the arch
| Immediately preceding t h e
'bride and groom. Virginia Del!
; Bond of Waco, Texas, a neice of
: the bride, and a charming little
i tot, scattered rose leaves from a
j silver basket in the pathway of
I the happy pair The bride and
1 groom took their places in front
j of the arch, when Rev. Denham
performed a most beautiful and
impressive cremony, followed by
the Lord'sPrayer repeated by the
assembled guests in unison Dur
ing the ceremony Mrs Wallace
played Annie Laurie, softly and
with an exquisite touch The
bridal robe was round length,
and was most fairy like in its
daintiness Its white satin foun-
dation was almost entirely cover
ed with chiffon, trimmed in ex-
quisite lace and valley lillies. The
bride wore a Juliet cap bordered
by orange buds and her tulle
veil was edged with filmy lace.
Over her left arm fell a shower
bouquet with dainty sprays of
valley lilies and asparagus plum
After congratulations had been
extended the guests passed into
the residence. At the doorway,
Miss Frances Lindsey registered
the names of the guests at a ta-
ble artistically decorated in dais
ies. In the reception room. Mrs.
J. J. Bond and Miss Tess Lind-
sey, presided over a lace laid
punch table where sweet peas
were effectively arranged.
In the dining room a display of
beautiful and useful gifts attest-
ed the popularity of the young

Every user of perfumes wants the most fragrant odor possible, and because we early rec-
ognized the fact, we have always enjoyed a large business in perfumes, etc.
It is not only quite a task to buy a real choice, delicate and true odor
but a good perfume must be properly kept to preserve its natural
fragrant and flowery daintines. Note—Keep your perfume in a dark
place as cool as possible, it will be sweet and fresh to the last drop.
We exercise great care in selecting our perfumes and as a result we have a very choice
line. All are highly concentrated Jand represent the most exquisite odors from nature's
choicest flowers. Such fragrant Rose and Violet odors as ours cannot be excelled, and
our Lilac, Heliotrope, Carnation and all others are of high grade and cannot be excelled.
