      Again the old adage proves that "Love laughs at bolts and bars" and also at objecting daddies and mams. Eloped on the night of the 14th, Peyton King and Miss Mary Hansford, daughter of Hon. W.O. Hansford, of this place. We understand they took the night express for Louisville and there crossed the river to Jeffersonville where the knot was tied. While we object to that way of getting married, we offer them our congratulations and best wishes for their future happiness and prosperity.
