The courtship was one of perfect devotion and ideal love, and was followed by a beautiful wedding and thousands of congratulations.
But for some reason the union seemed not a congenial one. separation followed estrangement and disagreement. Mr McDormand went west, engaged in business and did well, but as his fortune increased so did his longing to return to the home of his youth, and sometine age he arried in Athens and soon decided to stay and established a mercantile business. After the separation, Miss Peeler, whose maiden name was returned by the court, herself went into business and made a succesful and independent livehood, and when the husband of her girlhood returned, he found her prosperous and happy.

To make a long story short.
