INFORMATION WANTED of my son, Willie Henry Hodges, who left Spencer, N. C., in the month of August, last. I fear some misfortune has befallen him. As he left a wife sick, and said would return in a few days, I can not believe my son to be so heartless not to have returned, could he have. Description: Light brown skin, slightly baldheaded, walks erect; weight, 135 or 140 pounds; age, 40 years; occupation, railroad firing. When last seen was wearing dark brown checked suit with K. of P. pin on lapel of coat; carried black suit and tan shoes. Information will be satisfactorily rewarded, and I will place the amount at their disposal as soon as information received. Address Mrs. Indianer Hodges, 1406 South Street, Portsmouth, Va.
