One of the most sensational marriages occurred here on Sabbath morning, 31st ult. The groom being one Elijah Cummins, the bride one Mollie Norris. About one year ago Mr. Cummins lost his first wife. Since then he has paid but little attention to the fairer sex, but a few days ago he accidentally saw a girl, she living in the family of on of our farmers. The girl left the family where she was at work on Saturday evening, the 30th ult. to stay all night with a widow woman who lives next door to the said MR. Cummins. Here for the first time, the girl laid eyes upon Mr. Cummins and there seemed to be a mutual affection struck both at the same time. He called on her on the same evening and they must have become engaged on the same evening for on Sunday at precisely 10 o’clock a.m., they were united in marriage, Rev. M.P. Zink officiating. She left the family where she was working at 4 p.m. on Saturday and at 10 a.m. on Sunday she was married, less than 24 hours she was courted, engaged, and married. We think this is the quickest marriage from the first time the parties met as strangers on record in the county. If it can be beat, let the same be known. Much joy to them is our wish.

| She Wants Ten Thousand Dollars – The Postmistress of Loveland Sues Her False Lover for Breach of Promise |
(originally reported in the Enquirer)
sensational breach of promise suit will be instituted in the Common
Pleas Court by Frank M. Gorman, the attorney, in behalf of Mary E.
Gilbert against Charles C. Jones. The plaintiff has been agent of
the Cleveland, Columbus, Cincinnati and Indianapolis Road at Loveland
and postmistress of the village for some years. In her petition she
will allege that Jones, who was a dashing young farmer with a residence
at Evendale, near Loveland, had paid her marked attention for a long
time, and finally, under promise of marriage, seduced her. As an
evidence of this fact she is ready and willing to produce a fine
healthy baby which she gave birth to a few days ago. She only asks that
Jones fulfill his contract of marriage, or failing to do so, pay over
to her $10,000 damages, which her good name has sustained in being a
mother but not a wife. It is more than probable that Jones will
do neither, when he found matters were becoming interesting he
decamped, and is now said to be enjoying the climate of Colorado or
Miss Gilbert has the sympathy of all who knew her at Loveland, where she has hitherto ranked as an exemplary young woman. Jones has property which he doubtless placed where it would be beyond the grip of the law before his departure.

|From Poverty to Wealth – An Inmate of the County Infirmary Receives a Handsome |
There came to the County Infirmary about 3 weeks ago from Pierce township a lady by the name of Rebecca Kidd, who was formerly a Potter. Mrs. Kidd is a widow, whose husband having served faithfully in the war died a few years ago in Cincinnati. A pension was applied for by Kidd away back in the sixties, but he died long before it was granted and never had the pleasure of enjoying the usufrct [sic]. The widow and her two children, after the death of the husband and father, had a hard lot. Poverty stared them in the face. Being poor, many of their friends and relatives forsook them and some even went so far as to treat them with scorn and contempt. Mrs. Kidd finally became sick and unable to provide for herself and her two little ones, so that it became necessary to place the unfortunate family in the infirmary. But matters have changed now. Mrs. Kidd, instead of walking the poverty vale, can now purchase for herself a comfortable home. Instead of being despised and forsaken she will have a host of friends who sill be ready and anxious to render assistance of any and all occasions. Why this change? Why so many friends in so short a time? The questions can be answered in a few words. The U.S. Government has granted the widow and her children a handsome pension, she receiving $4119.68 back pay and $12 per month during the rest of her natural life, providing, of course, she does not marry again, while each of the children will get $2 a month. It is needless to say that Mrs. Kidd and family are not now inmates of the Infirmary.
J.J. Armstrong has sold his palatial residence on Main Street to Mrs. Rebecca Kidd for $1600.

A Child Recover by Writ of Habeas Corpus Last Week
29 Sep 1886
The will of Lois A.D. Skiff of Loveland was set aside by the Court of Common Pleas in proceedings of contest brought by W.J. Skiff, a son of the deceased. The will was made in KY and written by the deceased, it not being necessary in such cases to have the will witnessed. She afterward sold her Kentucky property and purchased land in this county near Loveland. The court held that the will was null and void because it was not made in compliance with the laws of this State.

Van ANTWERP CLENNY
“Uncle Joe” Staton, colored, age 91 years died at the Infirmary on Saturday evening last after a short illness. In his palmy days, he owned a good farm in southern Clermont, well-stocked, and enough of this world’s goods to take life easy, but in dotage he met with reverses until he was finally sent “over the hills to the poor house.” Mrs. Louis Van Antwerp and sister, Miss Mary Clenny of Cincinnati, to who the deceased belonged when a slave in Kentucky, came up Monday and placed the remains in charge of Sterling & Moore, who interred the same in Pt. Pleasant Cemetery yesterday.
