Albert Hunter and Lucinda Elmore of Crawfordsville made application Monday afternoon late for a marriage license to marry. The groom looked rather young, and after several questions had been asked him by Deputy Abernathy, and answered in an unsatisfactory manner, a license was refused. The couple returned to Crawfordsville, we understand with the intention of getting further proofs of the age of the would-be groom and returning, procure a license and get married. But they have not returned yet.—Danville, Ill. Commercial-- Lucinda Elmore is well known here having figured in the incest case with her stepfather, Wm Hunter, who escaped on the plea of being a bigamist. Just who Albert Hunter happens to be is not known, but (whoops missed a couple of words - so sorry)  

Martha HUNTER - David SCOTT

It was learned Saturday that Miss Martha Hunter and David B. Scott were husband and wife. They were quietly married in Danville last summer, the exact date being August 14. While it was known to many friends of the young people that Mr. Scott was paying Miss Hunter marked attention it was not dreamed that they were married until Saturday when Mr. Scott accidentally let it out to a friend. When asked about it Mr. Scott said that he did not deny it and then told the date and place the wedding occurred. Although the friends of Miss Hunter and Mr. Scott feel somewhat piqued that they were not let into the secret, yet all join in wishing them long life and happiness in their new relation.
