Lots of Trouble
D. N. CURB returned here Saturday after an
exciting chase across the river and back, where
at Leon, a fiend in human form, Mr. AULD, an
advance man for the J. E. HENRY wagon show. Auld
is under arrest and faces charges for pandering.
He took the two young Doyle girls from the train
on their way to visit relatives at Wichita Falls.
When the girls failed to arrive at Wichita Falls,
Rev. Curb followed the trail across the river,
then to Leon, Love County finding them in
AULDÄôS wagon. The girls are young and
unsophisticated and did not realize the enormity
of their conduct and stated they were glad to see
Rev. Curb, yet humiliated to see him. The good
people fo Oklahoma should see to it that any
fiend who takes advantage of youth gets what is
coming to him.
