The prospective groom in the VVaterloo elopement case, the particulars of which were given in last Tuesday's Argns, is now serving a ninety days' sentence in the Washtenaw county jail. He didn't get that sentence for running off with the girl. Justice Lehman, of Chelsea, gave ir. to him for petty larceny. He was charged with stealing $2.50 in money ?nd a silver watch from his employer, George Runciraan, of Lyndon township. The hero of the elopement escapade is named William Rothman. While Mr. Runciman, who is town treasurer of Lyndon, was attending a church social, Rothman ransacked everything in the house, going through the trunks and bureaus, and even went through the carpet rags. He then betook himself away, teaving in his room twenty letters from the young girl with whom he eloped. It will be remembered that the eloping couple walked to Stockbridge on a Saturday, reaching there too late to catch a train for Jackson, where they proposed to take out a marriage license, and registered at a hotel as man and wife, staying until Sunday afternoon, when the girl's father arrived and carried her home by main strength. Young love will have a chance to cool during Rothman's ninety days' stay at the county jail
