Montour Parties Wbo Chose Mar sballtown as Their Gretna Green Canse Trouble. Grandfather of the Bride and Bis Fortune Said to Figure In the Hatrimonal Venture. One of the Wednesday weddings in the city was of two Tama county young people, and promises to cause grief for someone, providing the Identity of the person who made affidavit for a license to wed is ascertained. The wedding in question was that of Miss Sophia Paxton to Mr. James Mc Coy. Both of the contracting parties live at Montour and they were married by Justice Allen, at the latter's office, at about 11 o'clock In the forenoon. It seems some trouble was encountered in obtaining the licence and Deputy Clerk of Courts Cammack hesitated some what In issuing the same. McCoy ap plied for the licence In person, claim ing to be a farmer, aged 23 hiB next birthday. With him was a more elderly man, who, It Is learned, was Thomas Gillespie, of Tama, stepfather of Mc Coy. Gillespie, it seems, told Deputy Cammack that the girl would be 19 years of age her coming birthday, and that there was no objection, as far as he knew, to the marriage. The deputy asked them why they took the trouble to come to this county when they were so much nearer Toledo, the county seat of Tama county, but the question was turned off by an evasive answer. Mr. Cammack would not grant the license, however, upon the grounds that Gilles pie was not a resident of this county, and the men left, only to return shortly afterwards with a woman whom Mr. Cammack thought he recognized as a resident of this city, and who claimed to be Mrs. Rina Johnson, and a resident here. The license was granted upon her affidavit and the marriage, of course, was solemnized without further question. When the T.-.R. announced the wed ding the relatives of the young woman learned It at Tama in tfoe evening. It waa the first Inkling that was had by them that the marriage had occurred and of course an active campaign was hurriedly mapped out. This resulted In the arrival In the city Thursday of Mr. Fred Dannenbring, of Tama, a wealthy German farmer who is the maternal grandfather of the girl. His daughter had died when his granddaughter was young, and she was his only heir. With Mr. Dannenbring was the girl's father, Mr. A. C. Paxton, of Tama, who was accompanied by his business partner, Mr. J. A. Harvey, formerly a practicing attorney of Tama county. County At torney Stone was visited and the fact that the girl was only 15 years of age last October was made known to him. The clerk's office was also visited and the affidavit book inspected, which showed, as stated above, that the li cense was sworn to by "Mrs. Rina Johnson." A description of the woman was secured from Mr. Cammack, from Officer Cochran and from an employe of Scheeler's livery barn. All the de scriptions tallied with that of Mrs. Alice Gillespie, of Tama, mother of James McCoy, the newly-made husband of the girl. The circumstances regarding the case seemed so conclusive that a warrant was secured in Justice Burrltt's court, charging the woman with perjury, in falsely swearing to the age of the girl. The papers were placed in the hands of Constable Nicholson for service, and the latter went to Tama this morning to make the arrest, having received a telephone message that Mrs. Gillespie was there. It has been ascertained by investiga tion of the case that the marriage can not be annulled, but every effort will be made by the family of the girl to have her leave McCoy. Mr. Danenbring, Mrs. McCoy's grandfather, says that al though she Is his only heir, she will be cut oif without a shilling unless she does. The friends of the girl claim that the whole affair was trumped up by Mrs. Gillespie, who knew that Miss Paxton was her grandfather's heir and would some day have between $15,000 and $20,000 at her command, therefore these strenuous efforts were made to bring about the marriage. WAS ONE OF THEM. The South-western Abrogated the War Clause. It Is pretty safe to say that there is not an Insurance company that has the confidence of the publlo, in all respects, as has the Southwestern Mutual of this city. When the policy holders enlisted in the Spanish war the validity of their insurance was in no way affected. The Southwestern pays Its losses promptly It looks after the Interests of Its policy holders as well as its own it has, by its liberality to Its patrons, grown until It stands second to none today, and no word, except that of praise. Is. heard of this popular Insurance association. The following notice, one of many that is going the rounds of the state press, Is from the current issue of the Jefferson Bee: "Mr. Ross Mason tells us that his son Clarance was carrying a $1,000 policy of life Insurance in the Southwestern of Marshalltown at the time of his death. The policy was made In favor of the mother. The insurance companies nearly all abrogated the 'war clause' from their contracts last year, and al lowed their policy holders to engage In the Spanish war without affecting the validity of their Insurance. The South western was one of those companies. TOM REED INJURED. Marshalltowu Man Falls From a C. G. W. Brldice and Breaks Both Arms. Tom J. Reed, a well-known resident of the city and one of the city's Are po lice, residing at 507 North Third avenue, was quite seriously injured' Thursday evening at about 5:15 o'clock by falling from a Chicago Great Western bridge one-half mile north of Melbourne. Mr. Reed has been working on the company'B bridge gang under Foreman Ed James, who has charge of the repair work and building on this division. He was'at work on the bridge in question, the coeds of which were being tight- mt&m ened. Mr. Reed was on the scaffolding and was engaged in tightening one of the nuts on a large bolt when the wrench slipped, causing htm to loosen his hold and fall from the scaffolding backwards, a distance of fifteen feet, alighting on the ground on his wrists and head. Both arms were broken at the wrist, the right being a colles frac ture and that of the left a comminuted one. His face was badly bruiBed, espe cially over the left eye. Mr. Reed was taken to Melbourne and had his wounds dressed before his re moval to this city. Permission was granted to bring him home on a fasf freight train, which arrived here at 8 o'clock. Mr. Reed was then taken to the company surgeon, who re dressed the arms. Mrs. Reed and daughter were notified and were pres ent during the painful ordeal. Mr. Reed was removed to hiB home at about 9 o'clock and is resting quite easily today, having got to sleep after about 2 o'clock this morning. He certainly showed grit in having his injuries dressed, re fusing to take any anaesthetic what ever. It will be some time before the arms are strong enough to allow him to engage In work again.
