'Arrangements were made for an old time. .wedding on Monday forenoon, .but the bride-to-bfi had grown sick of her bargain, and taken back her hesitating consent to the union. As ilhe girl, who can speak little or no English, some friends con- stant intimidation was usod to gain her consent, and when all other means [ailed, threats of personal chastisement were freely made. She had a married sister residing at Blairmore, and the sister, learning of sme of affairs, came to town to get the young girl away. Going to a neighbor's house, the bride-to-be was bundled up in a shawl, and spirit- ed making her safe get-away to B la inn ore. When the groom learned of, her departure, there was high 3'nks in Slavtown, and the air was blue with Slavonion oa'ths. He had ordered the wedding feast, the beer and other re- freshments, and about forty or fifty of, his fellow workmen had laid off work to attend the wedding', A con- sultation was held, and it was decid- ed to go ahead with the festivities, brid-e or no bride. So the wedding feast was spread and freely partaken of, the 'wedding beer kegs were broached and partaken of still more freely, and the wedding dance came only bride off, ag jwr schedule being lacking. It is understood that would-be groom is holding ihft girl's trunk and clothing until ahe repays him for the money spent in endeavoring to win her affections. KILLED IN ELEVATOR SHAFT Toronto, Sent.
