Gruhlke - Handenberger

LOVE TRUMPS EYOTA ELOPERS FIRMLY SPLICED
That love is ever triumphant was the sentiment that echoed and re-echoed from the walls of the Henry Norcross home on the lower end of French Island on Thursday morning when Mr. Norcross, justice of the peace of the island, innocently tied the knot which will forever bind together Miss Louis Hanenberger, 17, and Mr. Eddie Gruhlke, 19, vehemently pursued couple of Eyota, Minn., “till death doth them part.”

When Henry Norcross heard a rap at his door at about 5:30 Thursday morning he stretched, rubbed his eyes, hopped into his trousers and a few moments later “Hank” did the deed, little knowing that he was putting the finishing touches on one of the most romantic elopements that has ever aroused the interest of La Crosse people.

Mr. and Mrs. Gruhlke boarded the first train out of here Thursday morning for Eyota, according to the French Island justice.

Ma and Pa Hanenberger had strenuously objected to Louise’s hooking up with Eddie largely because of the tenderness of their years so when the young couple disappeared, the remainder of the Hanenberger family left for Winona, foiled the elopers, and then ‘phoned to La Crosse where the pair had obtained a license but were forced to wait, as behooves obeyers of the law. For the past few days, Eddie and Louise had been in hiding “somewhere on French Island” until the earth divulged its pretty on Thursday morning. The irate parents have also returned to Eyota, foiled, as of yore.
