A Barber Is Out A Wife

Charles Rorick, the barber on Front street between Hampshire and Vermont, is minus a wife today. She told her hubby yesterday that she was going fishing. She manifested all the outward signs of going fishing when she left, as she carried a pole, line, etc.

Today Mr. Rorick talked as if his wife had gone off with another man. He says that they have been married three years and his wife is now 17 years of age. They have never had any domestic trouble.

He says that he has cause to believe that his went away from town with a man they call “Zing Zang” anda [sic] that reports are to the effect that they are in Plymouth, Ill. He says that he will put the case in the hands of a detective.
