A J'Him.y H:Tcrieiiee of n Bridal
"One of the funniest experiences
I remember of my boyhood times
w?s that of a couple in a neighbors
hood who ran away and sot mats
r.ed," said Newt Moore at the Union
depot last evening.
After tbo bridal tour was over the
couple went to the youn lady's
home to make peace with the old
folks. The young lady's father met
them at the door, and, taking his
daughter by tho arm thrust her in
to a room and locked her up, and
gathering up the shot iin ordered
his son-in-law oft the place and
threatened his life if he ever return
ed. The young man went home and
sat down and did some hard think
ing. Finally he sent word to the
young lady's mother to come and get
her daughter's clothes and every
thing that belonged to her. She
did so, and the young man held his
mjiher-nHaw as a prisoner and
hostage for the return of hu wife.
He, too, took a shot gun ;md stood
guard. The second day after the
father of the young ludy came oyer
to negotiate a surrender of prisoners.
As soon os he came la sight he
waved his white handkerchief in
token of a truce. The result was a
mutual exchange of prisoners.
"The youn. man made sucn a
good impression upon his mother
inda v during h r captivity that
all differences we:-"e pitched up and
the hatchet was buried." St. Jos
Itaiitits of i lie Maccabees.
The State commander writes us
from Lincoln, Neb., as follows: "Af
ter trying ether medicines for what
seemed to be a very obstinate cough
in our two children we tried Dr
King's New Discovery .and at the
end of tvo days the cough entirely
left them. We will not be without
it hereafter, as our experience proyes
that it cures where all other res
nicdie3 fail.'' Signed F W Stevens,
