  The color scheme in the parlor, where the sacred knot was tied, and in the dining room was green, white and pink, wrought out of many yards of chiffon and roses, carnations and potted plants in great profusion in artistic design.

  The bride comes from one of the best families of Grant county, her father being a well to do stockman and farmer, and Mr Sheetz, holds a lucrative position with the Wachovia Trust Company, Winston Salem NC. The happy couple will leave this evening on No 14 for a honey moon trip to Washington and the South, their future home.

  Cashier H L Arnold, brother in law of the bride, and Mrs Ida Umstot, aunt of the bride were among the Keyser people who attended the wedding.

KEEN DETECTIVE WORK CAUSES ARREST OF STORE ROBBERS

  Charles Ralston, of No 210 N. Mechanic street, James E Lewis and Albert Rexrode of Wineow street were last night arrested in their homes by Chief of police Harry Irvine, Lieutenant Trieber and Canstable Lindsey at Cumberland. The men, who are barely of age, are charged with robbing the stores of H G Wilson, of Keyser, on Wednesday, May 7th, and probably having some connection with the robbery of Suter's store in Piedmont, on Thursday, May 8th, and also Sprinkle's jewelry store on Virginia Ave, Cumberland, on Monday night of this week.

  The arrests were brought about by the clever detective work of Chief of Police F. Guy Davis and Mr H G Wilson, who have worked faithfully since the night of the robbery. From the start it is believed the men came here and left again in the night and the Keyser yards were carefully gone over several times by the Keyser policemen in the hope of finding some tangible clue to the robbers. Finally, a B&O employee, whose name of the present is suppressed, found a pawn ticket in the yards here. It had been torn to pieces, but he got the scraps to Mr Wilson and Chief Davis. They were put together and the number 1835 made out. Soon communication was had with Cumberland, and Lipston, a very reliable pawn shop man on Baltimore street had it connected with the name of Charles Ralston.

  Yesterday evening on No 14 Chief Davis and Mr Wilson went to Cumberland, and after some preliminaries the arrests followed before midnight.

  Mr Wilson positively identified a number of articles found in the several suitcases, captured with the men, which were filled with clothing, underwear, cutlery, etc, and from the description given by Mr Suter of Piedmont, Chief of Police Irvine identified other articles as those stolen from Mr Suter.

  On being pressed by Mr Wilson with his positive identification of some clothing he had on his back at that time, Ralston confessed, and later Lewis confessed also. The men claimed they rode blind baggage No 1 and after spending an hour committing the robbery, about 1 o'clock, went back to Cumberland on a freight train.

  Ralston, who is son of Ed Ralston, a well known stone mason, lived here with the family until they moved to Cumberland over a year ago. He was found at home with the family near the viaduct, and Messrs Wilson and Davis were present when he was arrested, but they did not go with the Cumberland officers after the other two men who roomed together in another part of town.

  Rexroad, it is said, at one time worked in the Keyser Car Shops.

  If the parties are not held in account for crimes in Maryland they will soon be brought here and lodged in jail until June term of court. At this time they are fighting extradition, but papers can be had, if necessary.


GRUESOME FIND; SUICIDE'S BODY

  George McKenzie, who was found dead near his home at Rawlings Md, early Saturday morning, was a son of Mr and Mrs Frank McKenzie of Ridgely, W Va, and also a brother of Mrs William Rowe and Mrs Joseph Monnett.

  He left his home about two weeks ago, without saying anything as to his purpose, but his wife supposed he had gone o a trip he had been planning for some time.

  Friday his dead body was located by a neighbor , who was passing along the river near Rawlings, and was attracted into the bushes by the roadside by the awful stench of the decomposing body.

  McKenzie had cut his throat with a razor and the instrument of death was found by his side. He had several times threatened to destroy himself, but no cause is given. He left a wife and several children.

  The McKenzie's ,about Keyser, among our most highly respected citizens, are relatives.

PROFITABLE SHEEP

  Four ewes owned by Mr L F Dunbar of Potts Valley, last year raised 8 lambs. The lambs weighed 832 lbs and were sold at 5 ½ cents a pound., bringing a total of $45.76.

  The four ewes yielded 20 pounds of wool which at 28 cents a pound netted $5.60. Mr Dunbar thus realized a grand total of $51.26, or $12.84 from each ewe. Monroe Watchman.

This, he expects, to arrive any day.
