The Paoli Republican, speaking of the marriage of Mr. Stone and Miss Talbert of Waveland after a courtship of 20 years says: “These happy people were in this county visiting their many friends and came without the least idea of marrying here, though they had been engaged for years, but a spirit of romance overtook them and they fell a victim to it

Waveland was all torn up Wednesday by the announcement that LD Stone had united his fortunes with those of Mrs. Maggie Talbert. The gossips were confounded and not one of them could be found who had the nerve to say, "I told you so." And with good reason for they had given up telling the good people so 10 years ago. About 19 years ago they were telling eerybody so and kept up their lick for 8 or 9 years when they got disgusted and quit.  It has been a  full 20 years since Mr. Stowe begin keeping company with Mrs. Talbert and so ardent was he in his suit that everybody was betting they would hitch up in no time, and bets of 3-1 on this opinion found no takers for at least six years when a few enterprising citizens did muster up the courage to put up some of their captal against the odds.  Meantime the couple went on courting regardless of the grim expectancy of the public. They walked by moonlight and went to picnics together in the day time, but they didn't get married. There seemed to be no reason for this as there were no impediments in their way. But time drifted on and Mr. Stone became an old bacheler and Mrs. Talbert a lady of uncertain age.  People quit talking about this "approaching marriage" and were knocked completely sill this day when they learned that the couple had married in Orange County where both had gone visiting some time since.  There is probably Something in the climate of Orange County which is suggestive of orange blossoms and we heartily commend it to several Crawfordsville couples as a summer resort.  Mr. and Mrs. Stone return to Waveland this evening and go to housekeeping.  May joy attend them.  They have not married in haste and won't have much leisure to repent in!

Last night about 7:30 o'clock a wedding occured at the jail. Fred White, who is in on a charge of assaulting Officer Grimes, signified his desire to wed Miss Clara Thompson, who was present to be wedded. Elder Pettiford, the colored clergyman, was also on hand and as no one was there to object the ceremony took place. Sheriff Davis says White's time will expire the 20th of August and that while he may be tough out of jail he makes a model prisoner. Now that he is married perhaps White may settle down when he is released and try to make a model man. So it be so hoped! - transcribed by kbz
