      Husband and Wife Make Up - A Pretty Wedding - Death of Dr. Louis VanCamp

      Berlin, Ont., March 25 - (Special) - Louis Schweitzer, who was brought to the gaol on Saturday night charged with threatening to murder his wife, was before Magistrate Mackie today. His better half was there, too, and she told the magistrate that they had made up, and in proof of this she kissed her husband there and then. The case was dismissed.

      At 5: 30 this evening a very pretty wedding took place at the residence of Mr. A. Foster, when his eldest daughter, Annie, was married to Mr. Addison Hallman, also of Berlin.

      Dr. Louis VanCamp, who had been a dentist in Berlin for 33 years, died at 4: 30 today, after a long illness. The funeral will take place on Saturday morning to Port Perry, the remains to leave on the 10: 40 train. Deceased was 67 years of age.
