A Young Lady of Fourteen Elopes to Become a Matron Mary Susan Chappell, the 14-year-old daughter of John Chappell, who resides near Farmer's Institute, and Henry Ross were united in marriage early yesterday morning at Romney by Rev. Mr. Smith. The ceremony was very quiet and no invitations had been issued for the event. The truth of the matter is Henry stole his bride from her home between the hours of midnight and dawn, and without her parents consent. When Mr. Chappell discovered his daughter's absence he started in pursuit but he did not overtake them in time to prevent the ceremony. He objects to the marriage on account of the extreme youthfulness of his daughter. There is recourse for such marriages, however, and Mr. Chappell proposes to have satisfaction.

Scanlan, a prosperous young farmer of near Clark’s Hill and Miss Sena Conrad, the beautiful and accomplished daughter of Joseph Conrad, of Sugar Creek Township.  The ceremony was performed in the presence of half a dozen guests, viz: James M.

The groom was dressed in the regulation black suit, while the bride looked as sweet as a peach in dark grey. Judge EC Snyder performed the ceremony in his usual happy and felicitous manner.  Hold on, we are too fast and for the moment thought we were writing of Elder Vancleave or Rev.

He congratulated the couple earnestly and said to the bride: “Mrs. Scanlan,  you are fortunate in being married by the court, and if Mr. Scanlan should ever mistreat you in any way, remember the court and know for a certainty that that institution has the same power to dissolve the bond that it had to make it.”  The Journal wishes Mr. and Mrs. Scanlan a long and prosperous journey and knowing them both as we do, we feel sure that neither will ever have to seek a dissolution of the marriage tie so earnestly entered into on the part of each. - kbz

Jacob D. Bazzle and Mrs. Susan Conrad were to have been united in marriage at the home of the bride Sunday night after church services, and Rev. Palmer was to have spoken the words. The groom is sixty six years of age and the bride is sixty four, and they thought they knew their own minds and hearts but it seems that some meddling relatives thought differently, and no end of trouble has resulted.
Mrs. Conrad’s relatives were the strongest objectors. They begged and argued and stormed against the marriage, but that lady simply smiled and stuck to her determination to wed Mr. Bazzle at the appointed hour. Then a different plan was adopted and strategy and deception won where plain objections failed.
Saturday evening one of Mrs. Conrad’s married daughters who lives down in Montgomery County drove into Colfax and called on her mother. The daughter made some excuse for asking Mrs. Conrad to accompany her home, but that lady remembering that she had plighted her troth and was to become a bride on the following evening, demurred, stating her reason. Then the daughter assured her mother that she would bring her back home in plenty of time to prepare for the wedding, and upon these representations Mrs. Conrad consented. Accordingly they drove down into Montgomery County and spent Sunday, but when it came time for the homeward trip the relatives flatly refused to take the lady home. Her pleadings were of no avail and she was compelled to remain where she was. Monday they took her home, but all the persuasion possible was brought to bear to get her to decline to go ahead with the marriage. Mr. Bazzle also called at Mrs. Conrad’s home and besought her to keep her promise and become his wife, and so the day was spent, the relatives of Mrs. Conrad doing their best to break off the arrangements, and the gentleman who sought her hand urging that she choose for herself and go to the altar with him. The question had not been definitely settled last night.—Frankfort Time

The happy termination of a long courtship culminated in Judge Chumasero's court Wednesday morning in the marriage of Joseph Corey and Miss Birdie Ransdel. While the nuptials were not exactly up to Joe's idea of social chivalry yet he found it cheaper. than getting up $300 for the maintenance of a little tot that bears Joe's trade mark and beautiful blond curls. In fact Joe knew nothing of the approaching nuptials until an officer waited upon him at his place of business and ushered him with all due pomp into the Judge's office. The room wore no embellishments in honor of the happy event, no trailing vines or growing plants were there to lure two happy souls into the garden of connubial bliss, and even the beautiful strains of that wedding march that were ground out by the blind, man's hand organ on the corner was lost sight of in the excitement of the occasion, but never the less, Judge Chumasero spoke the words which made Joe a husband and papa at one fell swoop, Birdie a wife, and gave a baby a long sought dad.  Again we are led to repeat with a happy refrain, "All well that ends well." - thanks to Kim H

Crawfordsville, Ind., Sept. 7 - William P. Crockett, principal of the Waveland High School, and Miss Ethel Fullenwider were married last week at the home of Irving Fullenwider by the Rev. Thomas G. Pearce, pastor of the Presbyterian Church. It is a custom at Waveland to make every bridegroom ride a mule with the band leading the way, and this is generally taken in good part. Mr. Crockett was inclined to hostility, and it was planned to seize him as he was going to the carriage which was to take the bridal couple way after the ceremony. At the critical moment four strange men appeared upon the scene and surrounded the carriage and Mr. Crockett, standing up in the carriage, dramatically waving a revolver, exclaimed. "The first man that touches me drops." The couple escaped.
