Youth Who Eloped With 13 Year-Old
Girl Held in Jail.
The preliminary hearing of Roy
Hodge, the theatrical advance agent
t barged with seduction of pretty L5-
ear-old Delpha Woods, to whom he
was married in Davenport Saturday,
was yesterday afternoon continued till
Aug. 22, and the prisoner was unable
to furnish $l.oo() to gain his liberty.
George Wundcr, the Davenport youth
who swore that Hodge and the girl
were of legal age, waived a hearing and
furnished $500 bonds for appearance.
From the fact that Hodge brought the
stage effects of the girl to Davenport
with him, it was evident he intended
to keep her before the footlights. She
is said to be a good singer and dancer.

The illustrious men in history who

a very ill favored man, and yet when a
mere strippling, before his fame in
Rome, girls of bis own age sighed for
him and mature women longed for his
love. Among the men of later times who
were renowued in like manner were
Sir Philip Sidney, plain almost to ugliness;-Paul
