' The Salem Statesman tells the fol
lowing interesting story of two bride
grooms troubles :
A few days since, a young man j
hailing from the classic precincts of j
the Lacreole, applied to the County j
Clerk o Polk County for a liconae j
to marry a yotrag lady, which the ac- J
commodating clerk issued. The same i
day another young man called for a
license to marry. The clerk was not
in, and his deputy issued the li
cense. The two licenses were issued
for the same girl. T.e first party
hastened to the home of llTs youpg
inamorata, and fixed up in gay at
tire, they hastened to a ministers
residence to have the 4,knofc tied" iu
regular orthodox style. fWhile the
ceremony was being performed par
ty No. 2 came panting into the room
his face flushed and hi almost
broken heart thumping pecept ibly, !
In answer to the ques ion if there I
were any who objected to the bans,
No. 2 yelled out he did, at the same
time presenting bis license duly is
nA and signed br the County
Clerk. Here waa a quandary the j
man of God couldn't get through
bis clerical brain, and he stopped,
leaving the party unmarried. No.
1 came to this city the next day to J
consult an attorney. He was in a ;
world of trouble frustrated in his !
cherished desire of wedding his lady j
love the day before, he wanted to
appeal to the law perhaps to pl ice J
an injunction on his Jival,; No. 2. ,
TThile No. 1 was taking legal ad
vice, No. 2 took the much coveted!
Hose, of Dallas, to another dispen
ser of connubial ties and was mar
ried. When he returned he found
that while be had gained his point
as to law, bis rival had gained his
point in matrinionv; as possession
was nine points in law, No. 1 was
valcnme to tbe Tjossession of the
point of law be had gained. The ;
tnsseltorthe girl was a vigorous!
one, and we really feel like condol-:
