And one could repeat the oft quoted
words of the erstwhile popular song,
not only once more, but five times
more, to hint at the story of the pa-
tient and loyal girl who waited in vain
hif the house of worship to hear the
wedding bells ring for her.
Six times, actually, sweet, sensible
and attractive Inga Lindquist waited
at the church for Alfred Rasmussen
that the parson might tie the matrimo-
nial knot for them. But some strange
fate intervened to blast the hopes of
the blushing bride-elect.
Each and every time the bride-
groom-to-be proved recreant and eith-
er failed to appear at the church, or
fled after the bridal party and guests
had assembled. Four times the faith-
less Alfred made his “get-away” just
before reaching the sacred edifice, and
twice he quietly slipped away while
those present waited for the minister
to come to the altar. .
On each occasion the heart-broken
bride was left in tears of shame and
anguish, while the wedding guests
raged at his heartlessness in desert-
ing the trusting girl and depriving
them of the promised sumptuous feast
and merry-making that were to follow
Yet this recalcitrant fiance really
and truly loved the confiding and pa-
tient young woman who had given her
all of the passion of her heart. And
she—well, she had such unbounded
faith in the genuineness of his pro-
fessed affection for her that the bitter

protested his deep, undying love for
her with so ardent words of endear-
cliurch, with only the bridal attend-
ants and a few close friends and rela-
tives to witness the ceremony, though
there was to be a grand feast at the
home of the bride s aunt, Mrs. Ceder-
quist. After the latter the new-
ly wedded pair were to take a trip
to New York and other eastern
That was in April last. Miss Lind-
quist, her bridesmaid, two young worn-
<?n friends, three male friends, a
cousin and her aunt, and Rasmussen’s
best man and six of his friends, wait-
ed at the church. Rasmussen did not
come, and the bride-to-be and the
bridal party retired—Miss Inga broken
called to him from the carriage. He
hastened to her.

“Get in, Al," she said sweetly. “I’m
going on that wedding trip of ours.
It’s been put off so often I’m just
heartsick to make it, even if I have to
go alone. Besides, business is quiet
now and I can spare the time. Come
and drive with me to the depot, Al,
won’t you?" coaxingly.
“Al" got in quickly, and was not a
little astonished to find there were
other occupants—the aunt and brides-
maid. But their presence did not
abash him and he renewed his old
style of love-making. Very earnestly
he pleaded with Inga to not go away,
vowing that he would wed her without
any further delay if she consented to
remain. The young woman pretended
to be obdurate and let the artful
dodger go on with his pleas and vows.
So intent was Rasmussen he did not
notice the direction in which tho
carriage was being driven. But Inga
had laid her plans carefully, so care-
fully there was practically no danger
that they would go amiss. The driver
had his instructions, and before

riage at the curb. In a few minutes
Miss Lindquist and Rasmussen were
standing before the minister and
around them stood the rest of the
bridal party. And the ceremony fol-
lowed. It was brief. When the min-
ister shook hands with the newly wed-
ded couple and gave them good advice
and extended his congratulations, the
Rasmussen, no one knew where ho
was. Mrs. Cederquist, the bride-elect's
aunt, and several of her gentlemen
friends were anxious to notify the po-
lice of the fiance’s disappearance, fear-
ing that maybe he was a victim of
foul play. But intimates of the miss-
ing man protested that it would re-
sult in sensational notoriety for all
concerned, and their objections pre-
vailed. Three weeks later, or in the
early part of May, “Handsome Al" re-
appeared and called on his weeping
sweetheart. He pleaded hard for for-
giveness, alleging that he suddenly
became frightened at assuming the
responsibilities of married life, and
was so worried about this while on
his way to church that yielding to im-
pulse, he fled and went to Milwaukee.
So eloquently did the recreant
lover plead that his sweetheart for-
gave and took him back. Then new
plans were made, and it was decided
that the wedding should be the last
week in May. Again the milliner
was “waitin' at the church” for the
second time, but the faithless lover
came not. Once more the bride-to-be

close friends—the feminine ones—
were about giving up hope that she
would ever become c, bride that tho
good-looking young pharmacist, Al-

and fell in love with Igna Lind-
