|Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from
microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 8/24/1897.
Clayton T. Stump, postmaster at Staten, went up into Clay count a few
days ago and brought home with him one of Clay's blushing maids, which
he is now pleased to call his wife. The courtship and wedding was
a short romance, they never having met until a day or two before marriage.
They had been corresponding for some time and had exchanged pictures.
We wish them a happy voyage down the stream of time.
