On Sunday evening we had a romance in real life. Miss Kennedy, a colored damsel, boarded the evening train for Cass Station where she was to meet her affianced, and as her mother was very much opposed to the union, she went into the car to stop her fleeing daughter, and the train started and as mamma did not have the money to pay her fare the conductor stopped the train and she must needs alight, so the daughter went on, and on arrival at the depot at Cass, her betrothed met her and had the arrangements made and they were married on the platform and went on their way rejoicing.
