Thomas Real and Miss Porter, of Burnett, eloped to Iowa a few days ago and got married, he being 40 years of age, she 13 years of age. They got back to Battle Creek May 29. Now Mr. Porter, father of said girl, and Mr. Page, his son-in-law, are on the track of Thomas armed with revolvers and swear they will shoot him as soon as they lay eyes on him.
