Ceremony Was Performed at the
Mercereau Residence Last Night.
A wedding, which for the prominence
of those most Interested attracted un
usual attention, was celebrated Inst
night at the homo of Mr. and Mrs.
Charles La Monte Mercerenu, 413 Quln
cy avenue, when their daughter, Jo
sephine La Mnnte, was married to Pro
fessor Frank Bowers Llttcll, of Wash
ington, D. C.
The coiemony was performed by Rev.
Dr. S. C. Logan, assisted by Rev. Dr.
C. M. OliTln. The marriage was wit
nessed by only a small company of tho
closest friends and was followed bv a
large leceptlon, attended by representa
tives of the choicest social circles In
this and other cities.
The beautiful rooms were elaborately
decorated, the mantels, corners and
much of tho walls being hidden by
rich greenery. The dining room was
exceptionally effective with ferns and
masses of pink roses. The ceremony
was performed In the living room,
where a large bay window formed an
attractive sotting.
The bride with her patrician face and
fine carriage, made a charming picture
in her bridal robes. She wore an im
ported gown of real lace, over white
satin and chiffon. Her veil was fas
tened with orange blossoms. The maid
of honor was Miss Grace Blrdsall, who
will herself be a fair bride in .Tunr.
Her gown was of satin faced crepe de
chine, in a soft yellow tint, and she
carried a great bouquet of pink carna
tions. The best man was George H.
Peters, of Washington. The ushers
were Burton La Monte Mercereau, the
bride's brother, and F. De Los Mac
Gowan. The wedding music was played
by Prof. Chance and Bauer's orchestra.
Mr. and Mrs. Merceieau and Mrs.
Marie A. Littell, the groom's mother,
assisted in receiving the guests.
Professor Littell is a man of whom
Scranton is very proud. He is the son
of the late J. H. Littell and belongs to
one of tho oldest families in this region.
He has achieved a remarkable place for
himself, of which a man twice his years
might well be proud. He is"" now pro
fessor of mathematics in the navy de
partment with the rank of lieutenant,
and is considered one of the foremost
men in the nation in his particular pro
fession. Last year he was in charge
of the expedition w hlch went to Sumat
ra for astronomical observations, and
his knowledge of scientific subjects Is
so great that much Is expected of his
future career.
His bride, the only daughter of Mr.
C. L. Mercereau, the senior member of
the firm of Mercereau & Connell, is one
of the most talented young women of
this region. With every advantage of
culture her attainments both in music
and as a miniature nainter are pre
eminent. She has rare graces of per
sonality and character and will be
greatly missed in her home city. Pio
fessor and Mrs. Littell will reside in
Washington, where a handsome borne
awaits their occupancy. It will be
beautified by innumerable gifts from
friends, representing the richest and
costliest of bric-a-brac, china, silver
and decorative art.

Benefit of a Reasonable Doubt,
Which Always Belongs to the De
fendant, Is Supposed to Be Re
sponsible for the Finding Another
Acquittal in a Police Case Walk
ing Delegate Found Guilty of As
sault and Battery Legally Sealed
Prosecutrix's Lips by Marriage.
A verdict of not guilty was returned
yesterday morning by tho jury In tho
case of John Arcentls, charged with
the killing of Hurry B. Frederick at a
house on Providence road, last Christ
mas night.
The stress laid by the defendant's
counsel, H. L. Taylor nnd C. Comegys,
on the matter of reasonable doubt Is
supposed to have secured this finding.
All through the trial they sought to
make uncertain the Identification of the
defendant by Annie Howlltt, the girl
who witnessed the affray, and all of the
nine law propositions submitted to the
court for transmission to tho jury dealt
with the legal principle ot tho defend
ant being entitled to the benefit of
every reasonable doubt.
After receiving the verdict, Judge Ed
wards called Argentls before him and
said to him that tho jury had prob
ably acquitted him on tho ground of a
reasonable doubt existing ns to the
identification, but hnd a verdict of guil
ty been returned It would not have
been unwarranted by the evidence.
The police were positive they had
Frederick's slayer when they arrested
Argentls, and despite tho finding of the
jury do not propose to look further for
tho culprit.
Another aeaulttal In a police case,
yesterday, which caused some surprise
was in the case of the commonwealth
against Arthur LaBar. On the night ot
March 3, two men were seen carrying
a couple of sacks from the Lackawanna
Mill and Elevator company's building
at the Diamond crossing. In the morn
ing it was discovered that the place
had been broken into and two sacks
of flour and $8.6,1 In change carried
away. The money was taken from a
shelf above the safe where it was cus
tomarily placed over night, because of
attempts having been made to rob the
The next day the police received a
"tip" which led to the arrest or Wil
liam Foster, a bo- living a short dis
tance from the mill. He confessed his
guilt, restored the flour, which with
$1.35 was his share of the bootj-, and
told that his accomplice was Arthur
LaBar, a young man living on Blair
avenue. When arrested LaBar stoutly
denied all knowledge of tho crime.
Foster went on the stand, yesterday,
and told in detail the story of tho theft.
There was no corroboration of his story,
however, and the jury, it is supposed,
heeded the behest of the law about
looking with suspicion on the unsup
ported testimony of an accomplice. C.
H. Soper and A. W. Bertholf represent
ed the defense. Hon. John P. Quinnan
and Assistant District Attorney Walker
represented the commonwealth. The
case was tried before Judge Savldge.
A nol pros on payment of costs was
entered in panh of the five riot cases
growing out of the trolley strike
troubles on Lafaj-ette street. The de
fendants were. Ellen Schell, Jennie
James, Margaret Jones, charged with
rioting, and David Jones and Josepli
Reynolds, charged with assault and
battery. Stephen Dyer was prosecu
tor in all five cases. The various other
assault and battery and riot cases
growing out of the strike are likely to
be summarily dealt with.
The cases against Frank Kofehinsk!
and Edward Sharak, special officers,
charged with extorting money from Old
Forge saloon keepers, were put over
until the next term, because of the
fact that KofchlnskI is a defendant in
the McAullffe murder case set down for
trial next week, and it was desired by
his counsel that tho testimony on the
extortion cases should not go out to
the community at a time so close to the
time when he will be on trial for his
A vet diet of guilty was returned In
the case of E. C. Patterson, charged
with assault and batters' on Edward
Walters. At the last term of court the
trial resulted In a disagreement of the
Patterson Is walking delegate of the
Carpenters' union. Walters Is a con
tractor. The latter was putting up a
building for James Savllle on Main
avenue, near Lafayette street, and was
employing several non-union caipen

of this, and together they went to see
Patterson and Walters had some
words which resulted In a personal en
counter, Walters says than Patterson
struck hi in in the face without oro
vocatlon. Patterson declares that Wal

In trying to ward off the blow his hand
accidentally brushed lightly against
Walters' cheek.
Tho case was tried before Judgo Kel
1 The prosecution was represented by
Assistant Dlstilct Attorney Grumer nnd
Joseph O'Brien, of counsel for the Citi
zens' Alliance. City Solicitor George M,
Watson represented the defense.
Four cases in which John McGowan,
of Caibondale, was defendant, weio nol
prossed. Ho was charged with crim
inal assault and attempted criminal as
sault on Margaret Buiry; with assault
and battery on Constable E, J. Neury,
and with carrying concealed' weapons.
Since the arrest, McGowan and Mrs,
Barry have married. This prevented
her from testifying against him even
if she wanted to, as the law makes a
wife an Incompetent witness ugalnst
her husband In. criminal proceeding.

charged by Oscar Heyer, thu Jeweler,
with unlawfully retulnlng a diamond
ring, The jeweler owed the tailor $55
for clothes. The tailor took an $S0 ring
for Inspection and refused to return t.
When the case cams to tilul, yester
day, Judge Edwards suggested that it
be settled by Miller paying Heyer the
difference between the clothing bill and
the value of the rlnsr. This was satis
factory to all concerned und a verdict
of not guilty was entered.
A nol pro3 was entered In tho case In
which Joseph Perrln, a 9-year-old Car
bondale boy, was charged by Margaret
MatnwarriiiK with muliclous mischief.
Judge Edwards refused to let him be
tried on account of his years.

finding lh the case In which' Patrick

What! Does the Grim Spectre
Follow You Into the Joy
ous Springtime?
Dtftats tha Work of Death by
Removing Your Terrible
Burden of Disease.
Are you stilt In suffering, misery, and
despondency? Does tho grim spectre,
Death, follow you closely as the joyous
springtime brings happiness and bless
ings to others around you? Are you
still clinging tenaciously to fulse theor
ies of physicians or friends who per
sist In assuring you that time, cure,
and the use of your present medicine
will give you new health?
Be assured your present condition Is
a perilous one, The continuance of tho
medicine you are now using Is a folly;
you are simply trifling with life and
wasting precious time,
You should remember that while
nature clothes tho fields with fresh
grass and flowers, and while the trees
with a strong life arc showing bursting
buds nnd new foliage, thut human be
ingsold and young drop off In thous
ands In springtime.
Now Is the time for prompt, decided,
and practical action if life Is to bo
saved. Prejudice and the erroneous
theories of even medical men should bo
cast aside when the hand of death Is
upon you. It matters not what your
social position be; tho medicine that
saves the humblest man or woman is
surely the one ndopted for tho needs
of tho rich and those In high social posi
tions. Palne's Celery Compound has a record
of life saving that no other medicine can
ever equal. It has rescued rich and
poor from tho grasp of death when
physicians and their most carefully pre
pared prescriptions failed In the work.
If the suffering men and women of
today could but see the happy faces
and hear the kind words spoken by the
tens of thousands who have been made
well and strong by Palne's Celery Com
pound, it would soon dispel their ex
isting doubts and fears.
Palne's Celery Compound Is the only
medicine that reaches the root of dis
ease; it Is the only agency that can re
move your terrible load of disease. Un
solicited testimonials of cures pour in
every day. Young and old constantly
bear witness that rheumatism, neural
gia, kidney disease, liver complaint,
dyspepsia, and blood diseases are ban
ished permanently when Palne's Celery
Compound Is faithfully used for a time.
Begin its use today poor sufferer; do
lays are dangerous.
