An Elopement - On Tuesday night William Hancock and Miss Maggie, daughter of R. Ironside of this p lace, left town with the presumptive purpose of getting married. Hancock secured a license nearly a month ago but owing to the lady's youth the father discouraged the union and believed the idea had been abandoned by his daughter. They first applied to Mayor Trott to have the ceremony performed and on his refusal left town without being discovered. Mr. Hancock was a widower and probably twenty-five years of age while the lady was fifteen.
