          John Parkerson, the simple fellow who was married to a Miss Ross, of Indianapolis, some months ago, is having a great deal of trouble just now. John married contrary to the desires of his mother and relatives, and when he returned with his wife and little son and took them to his former home, he was denied enjoyment by his mother, who was so bitterly opposed to the marriage of her son.  Since John and family were denied the enjoyment of his future home they have been living in Middletown and here, until last Wednesday, when he made arrangements to move to Indianapolis, but was prevented from so doing by his guardian, Mr. Elzy Rucker.  It seems that the poor, simple fellow does not know what to do, and that he has been persuaded to act in such a peculiar manner is evident to every person acquainted with the affair.  Mr. Rucker, as guardian, is doing everything in his power to protect the interests of this poor unfortunate man, but John is prone to believe everything to the contrary.  Peace on earth and good will toward man should be the prayer of the friends and relatives of this poor, simple man.  Since the above was written Mrs. Parkerson has returned to John, and they have again gone to housekeeping.
