ELOPEMENT ENDS IN HAPPY MARRIAGE.
A week ago last Saturday, Dick Richters, employed by Antone Henke in his
feed barn, and Mr. Henkeís young daughter, Miss Martha Emma Henke, drove
from here to Westfield and took the train to Sioux City, where they spent
Sunday with friends, and Monday, April 22, 1912, went on to Dakota City,
Nebr., and were united in marriage by County Judge Heffernan. Mr. Harry
Webster, of Sioux City, accompanied them as a witness. The bride is
considerably under age and her father made quite an effort to locate the
eloping couple, but without avail. After their marriage, they came to the
home of his brother and her sister, Mr. and Mrs. Peter Richters, southwest
of this city, after which they came here for her parentís blessing. This
they received, making all as merry as the proverbial wedding bells. Mr. and
Mrs. Richters will make their home here with her father.
