Outwitted the Old Folks.

William Brown a young white man working at the ore banks of Maj. Renfroe, yearned for the constant companionship of Miss Sullins, but the parents of the young lady shook their heads and said nay.  William set about outwitting of the old folks, commencing his operations by securing the necessary license.  The girl was watched constantly.  Sunday morning she made no preparations for attending church but had in view a trip quite of a different nature.  Early in the morning, attired in her everyday clothing, bonnet and all, she grabbed a bucket to go to the spring for a bucket of water.  There is nothing strange about this only that her William was at the aforesaid spring lying in wait.  The young lady did not stop at the spring but joined her lover and both proceeded hastily to the home of Squire Ed Ford, who had been cautioned to remain at home that morning for some purpose.  The knot was hastily tied and the couple returning home when they were met by the girl’s parents, who were very angry at the turn of affairs.  They became reconciled however and now the happy couple are enjoying the unalloyed bliss of their fondest desires.
