Youngberg—Norelius A pleasant little home wedding was celebrated on Wednesday evening, January 30, 1907, at the residence of Dr. Eric Norelius, Vasa, Minnesota.

The bride, Miss Martha Elizabeth Youngberg, is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Youngberg of Cannon Falls, Minnesota, and has during the past years resided in Minneapolis. M. S. Norelius, who during the past twelve years has been identified with this newspaper work, is a correspondent for the American Press Association of Chicago, and is well known, especially among the Scandinavian Americans of the Northwest.

The wedding was informal and characteristic, because it was absolutely free from cumbersome conventionalities. The immediate relatives of the contracting parties were present. Arthur W. Peterson, a life-long friend of the groom was best man, and Mis Ida Youngberg, a sister of the bride, was the bride’s maid Miss Mathilda Brynteson and Miss Hilma Hultgrean were the Vasa guests, and Miss Augusta Dotty of Minnespolis was an out of town guest.

Puncture Proof Tires Pneumatic Tube Protected by combination of steel and rubber What is claimed to be an absolutely puncture proof pneumatic tire has recently been placed upon the market by an Indianapolis (Ind.) firm. The tire is made in two styles—a heavy, solid rubber tread for pleasure cars and a steel tread for commercial vehicles. When fitted with the former, this new tire consists of a pneumatic tire resting on a steel rim and encased in two steel bands that follow the contour of the pneumatic tire until about one-third of the tread is covering, the steel bands being bolted to the rim of the wheel. 155 Years Ago THE HASTINGS

Music Written for the Gazette.

What is rhythm? Rhythm may be regarded as the life of music, and relates to the length of sound. It is a general name for all kinds of time. It is the variety in the movement, the longness or shortness of the notes. Strict musical rhythm is only perceptible by the ear. The rythmus of the ancients was very different from that of the moderns—the changes therein being only those made form one kind of metre to another. In good modern music the constitution of the rythmus differs from that of the verse, so far, that in setting music to words, the thing chiefly regarded is to accommodate the long and short note s to the syllables in such manner as that the words be well separated, and the accentuated syllables of each word so conspicuous, that what is sung can be distinctly understood.
