Wedding and Romance.
Married Sunday, January 17,
1909, In Nebraska City, Launey
Crouse and Miss Eunice Stoner, both
residents of Rockport, Mo.
The young couple arrived here
Monday evening and are visiting Dan
D. Farnham and wife at the Union
Hotel, the groom being a brother of
Mrs. Farnum. The announcement of
wedding is not an unusual bit of
news, but In this case there Is a little
romance that is rather IntereBtlng
in fact a clear case of elopement and
both parties plead 'guilty as
Down near the town of Rockport,
Mo., resides the highly esteemed and
Influential family of U. G. Stoner,
and one of the family was a hand
some and highly educated daughter,
Miss Eunice, 19 years of age. In
that same neighborhood lived I.aun
ney Crouse whose army service In the
faraway Philippines had been honor
able as well as courageous, and bis
attack upon the young lady's heart
resulted In victory for the young
soldier, but he failed to capture the
aid or consent of Father Stoner, who
had vowed that no less than 21 years
Is the proper age for brides. Then
the elopement was planned and no
obstacles Intervened, and they got to
Nebraska City Sunday evening in
time to secure a license and the cer
emony was performed by Rev. J. W,
Merrill. They telephoned the news
to Rockport, expecting to bo blessed
and forgiven, but there was "nothing
doing" In that line, and consequently
they are here waiting and hoping for
a reront lint ton and the coveted pa
rental blessing. We understand that
the lady's father does not object to
Mr. Crouse upon the matter of char
acter, the young man being honor
able and worthy In every respect, but
the good old father's objection 1h to
have his daughter tnken from IiIh
household. The young bride ex
presses no regret for the step she has
tnken, yet her happiness Is somewhat
marred by the thought that her ai t
Ion has troubled her parents, of
whom she sprakn with the greatest
nffoi-tlon. t'nlon Ledger.
