A Romantic Marriage—Dr. R. E. Cason and Miss Carrie Sorrels Meet on the train and agree to marry.

Miss Carrie E. Sorrels, of Acworth, boarded the cars at her home last Thursday morning, destined for Lawrenceville, where she was to take charge of a music class. Dr. R. E. Cason, of this city, who had met the young lady and formed an attachment for her, which it seems had been reciprocated, and knowing that there was some family opposition to his attentions, on hearing of her contemplated trip had boarded the same train she was going on, when it passed this place. When Miss Sorrels took her seat in the car he soon joined her, and importuned her to stop with him in Atlanta and get married. [Article continues, she agrees after some resistance.]
