and Miss Jennie Tobias were married
last Wednesday. The groom has been
in the mail service for several years
and the bride is a young lady well-
known iu this piace.
They will make their future home in
Saturday evening the young couph
had a trying experience in catching
the 4:13 train for the State Capitol.
The groom made arrangements with
( iuteliils' hack to convey the bride to
the depot, but on account of the rain,
the hack was tilled with passengers
before the bride could enter and the
driver made a trip to the depot expect
ing to make a second trip, which he
lid, but the hack wo blow in arriving
at the depot.
The train arrived on time and the
groom was there, but the bride was
not. 1 le was compelled to go nu that
train or lie would miss his aniioint-
nient to care for Uncle Sam's letters.
Here came the trying ordeal. It seemed
lie had to choose between deserting his
bride or his appointment. The decision
had to be made ipjickly and the spec
tators were anxiously awaiting the re
sult of the choice. The passengers
were all on board, the baggage was
loaded and the conductor's hand was
on the bell rope to signal the train to
start At this moment the hack up
peared in sight and the compassion of
the conductor subdued his feeling of
duty town i d the company and held lie
train'a nuoute or two, until the bride
and groom were re-united, and the
train pull. -I out and all went as happy
as a marriage lx-11.
It was a narrow escape, but it turned
out all right.
