A report of a divorce case has reached the city that involves a young couple well known here. They were married recently in this city and then left for a neighboring city where the groom teaches school. The girls mother, it seems wanted her to marry an operator, who jerks lightning over in Illinois. Contrary to her wishes the couple eloped and married. On going home to visit her folks the mother persuaded her to give up her newly married husband and marry the operator. She accompanied the girl to the Illinois town but the operator had changed his mind. Before going she had induced the girl to write her husband a farewell letter. On returning home she found a letter from the forsaken husband saying that she could stay but he would give her no divorce. At this point the girl repented, wrote her husband to that effect, and once more they are together. The marriage of this couple took place in the Sherman house here about one month ago, the ceremony being performed by Rev. G.W. Switzer, at midnight the couple coming over from Waynetown. Charley McClure was the groom and Miss Maud York, the bride. The young man whom the mother favored is named Kyle and he is now located at Oakland, Illinois. At present Mr. McClure is teaching school at Frankfort.
