Runaway Marriage.

There was a runaway couple in our city this week from near town for the purpose of getting married, but on account of the young lady being under age, they could not secure the license, but plucky boy, as all are when they get that idea in their heads, secured a horse and buggy and pulled the strings with his precious freight into Paulding county, where they were made happy and sent on their way rejoicing.  The name of the young lady was Miss Ida South, daughter of Uncle Jack South, who formerly lived in Cartersville, and the young man’s name was Joe Mills.  We heartily congratulate the happy pair and wish them all the pleasures that this life can afford.
