Chattanooga, Tenn., Aug. 1-- There were two peculiar and romantic runaway weddings celebrated here yesterday. One of them was the marriage of William Lecroix, aged seventy-six years, and Louisa Bluck, only fourteen years old. In the other case the couple were Jackson Slevins, aged sixty-five, and Emma Haynes, sixteen years of age. They had never met until the day previously. All the parties were members of well-known and highly respected families.
