RUNAWAY  COUPLE  WERE  MARRIED
AT  JEFFERSONVILLE
----------
          Charles Rauch  and  Miss Goldie Davis, who eloped Tuesday from their homes near Boggstown, returned Wednesday evening as man and wife.  The young people had gone from Boggstown to Franklin and from Franklin to Louisville.  There they applied for a marriage license, but were refused because of the youthful appearance of the girl.  They then went to Jeffersonville, Ind., where they secured the license without any trouble and were married there by a justice of the peace.
          The father of the girl refuses to be reconciled to the wedding and will not allow the young people at his home. They have gone to the home of  Mrs. William Wells,  a sister of Mr. Rauch, who resides two miles west of Fairland, where they will make their home temporarily.

          This morning we were shown the picture of another group including representatives of five generations of people.  They are relatives of the  Hester  family in this city, the elder person being the grandmother of  Mr. John M. Hester's wife.  Their names as given on the back of the photograph are as follows:  Mr. C. C. Hood  aged 86;  Mrs. H. D. Davis, her daughter, aged 66;  Orson Davis, son of  Mrs. Davis, aged 46;  Doris Davis Price, daughter of  Orson Davis, aged 20;  Louise Price, daughter of Mrs. Dora Price, aged seven months.  The picture was taken on Christmas Day, 1881, but since that time Mrs. Davis has died.  If these "five generations" groups keep accumulating on us we will come to the conclusion that our "most remarkable" spectacle ever seen was not such a novel sight after all.
