A Very Romantic Story

Here's an interesting news item I found today, randomly searching a newspaper from 1895:

Darling Is Willing.
MILLER, S. D., June 1.—Rev. E. S.
Darling's attorneys, Ensall & Hawthorne,
from St. Paul, are still here in
their client's interest. Ensall says
Darling will gladly marry Miss Falting,
under certain conditions, but such
proposition has not yet been accepted
by her, though she may finally consent
to it.
That's from the Waterloo Daily Courier, Waterloo, Iowa, June 1, 1895, p. 4.

Very romantic stuff there! It's bad enough that they were haggling it out. But that it would also be printed in the newspaper, to me that's strange.
