IN SEARCH FOR HER HUSBAND, d
Vile of Emuut G. Daris Goes to Lexington?No
Clue to Whereabonts. j,
Lexington, Oct. 31.?Mrs. Daisy ^
Javis, whose husband, Emmet G. t
)avis, left her penniless, and with the c
:are of four small children, one daugh- /
er and three boys, about five weeks
tgo, spent last night in Lexington,
Peking information which might be of I
.id in finding her lost husband. She
vas cared for at the county jail by 'fc
Sheriff Sim J. Miller, with whom she
teld a conference, and after a long c
onference with Frank W. Shealey, i
lerk of the court, with whom Davis s
pent a week, the distressed woman T
eturned to Columbia this morning. ^
Jefore leaving, Clerk Shealey made t
ip a purse for the woman and chil- c
IrfU sufficient, tn rarrv thpm harV tn I -
Columbia, where Mrs. Davis will con- t
inue in her efforts to locate her hus- ^
and. The case is one which has ex- e
;ited widespread interest. The wo- e
aan is in no condition to care for her $
ffspring, and since the going away n
>f her husband has been cared for ^
?y the Associated Charities of Colum- ?
>ia. At first Mrs. Davis thought that, \
>erhaps, her husband had met with c
oul play, but it later developed that ~
le came from Columbia to Lexington. I
)avis left his wife and children in
sewberry, presumably to drive a car
hrough the country. She was to fol
ow, tne nousenoia eiiecis Demg pacKd
and shipped to Sumter, where Davs
said that he had engaged work,
^he goods are now at the depot at
5umter, it is said, and Mrs. Davis delares
that all of her winter clothing
or herself and the little children are
ied up in the shipment:
Mrs. Davis asserts that she will be a

orced to place tne ntue cnnaren m 0
n orphanage unless she hears some- D
hing from her husband?the little
rirl to be sent to one place and the a
hree boys to another. The thought 0
?f parting with her children is prey- I
ng on the young woman's mind, and
he is almost distracted.
She married Davis when she was on- a
y 15 years old, she says, and during D
he fourteen years of her married life
he has been the mother of seven chilren.
She avows that she and her bus- _
and never had a quarrel during the j
ntire fourteen years, but for a weeK jiefore
he left her she alleges that he eemed
in a deep worry, but when she
irould approach him on the subject of
rouble, he would always declare that a
very thing was all right. n
Davis spent a week in Lexington o
/ith -the clerk of the court, having
een picked up on the Augusta road
bout two- miles from Lexington by c
Ir. Shealy, who was in his automobile. a
le was walking and claimed that he c
i-as "broke." Mrs. Davis says that
her husband had money when he
eft her; that he had just been paid n
?ff, and offered her $10 besides her a
oiifnori faro tn Sumter. During his r
tay in Lexington, Davis frequently
vent to Columbia with the clerk of the
ourt, and always seemed in the best a
if spirits. On the afternoon of the 3
Oth of October Davis went to Colum- c
>ia in company with Mr. Shealy and
Coroner Oswald, but did not return.
Jpon reaching Roddy's* automobile ^
ihops, it is said, Davis was apprised T
>f the fact that the sheriff was look- *
ng for him, and he at once left his
riends and departed from the city.
Davis has not been heard from since r
le left Lexington, although a postal 2
va.=r received bv one of his friends I
lere a few days afterwards, maile-d in
Augusta, but unsigned. It is the presumption
that the card was from Dav- ,
Davis is an expert automobile me- i
ihanic and worked for the Gibbes Machinery
company, and also for the
Rodd?y Automobile company while in
Columbia. He was employed in the 1
railroad shops in Columbia for about ^
Tour years, according to his statement.
He is tall, of slim build, dark 1
hair with gary streaks, is about 36 i
