Elopement Stopped

A runaway couple from Kent Island arrived at the Hotel Avalon, Easton, Sunday night. They were Miss Bessie D. Baker, daughter of the Rev. D. Baker of the Methodist Church at Kent Island, and Mr. W. Blizzard of the same place.  The couple started for a drive on Sunday afternoon, and arrived in Easton about 11 P.m. expecting to be married at once.  On arriving at the hotel they were confronted by Sheriff Gannon who had been telephoned to by Mr. Baker to stop the wedding and take his daughter in custody until the arrival of the girl’s parents
