The Bride Captured By Her Parents and Locked Up
And The Groom Under Arrest For False Swearing
Morenci, July 15
Fred Butler is a Morenci boy who clerks in a clothing store in Garrett, Indiana and is now home on his summer vacation. Early yesterday morning, he secured a rig and drove to Adrian, accompanied by Miss Edith Youngs, daughter of C. A. Youngs, a farmer living near Five Points.
They secured a marriage license and were married, and on the way home they stopped at the home of the bride's parents to get some clothing belonging to her. When the father found out what they had done he was very angry, locked her up in her room and sent Butler on to Morenci. When Butler reached here he was arrested byDeputy Sheriff Staniger, on a warrant sworn out by the girl's mother, charging him with swearing falsely to the girl's age in securing the license, she being under sixteen. He waived examination and gave bonds for his appearance in three weeks.
