A Former Geneva Man the Hero in an Elopement -
A Shortsville dispatch to the Rochester Herald details the incidents of an elopement recently occurring in that hamlet.  The man in the case is Clarence Reed, formerly of Geneva, and the lady Miss Lillian Russell, the 18-year-old daughter of Albert E. Russell of Shortsville.

Reed had been keeping company with Miss Russell for some time, contrary to her parents' wishes.  The young couple's plans had been well laid, for when Miss Russell's parents were away, Reed secured a rig and the couple started toward Palmyra.  In the meantime Mr. Russell was informed by a neighbor and immediately gave chase.  He overtook the elopers a short distance below Manchester and tried to persuade his daughter to return.  A heated conversation ensued. Mr. Russell came out second best, the young lady refusing to return.  The couple proceeded on their way, while the father returned home alone.

Reed kept a confectionery store in Geneva, first on Main st., and later on Seneca st.  His first wife was a Miss Welch, a Geneva girl, who died shortly after giving birth to a child.  Subsequently Reed moved away and few if any Genevans knew or cared about his career.  He left in debt, and it is said that when an officer sought to collect an account on a judgment, all he found was a couple of old trunks filled with rubbish of no value.  We fear Miss Russell has made a bad bargain in her matrimonial venture.  For her sake and that of her parents, we hope some good may be found in him yet.
