DENTON. A Constable Leaves a wife and Children to Run Away with a Barber’s Wife
April 18 – Quite a sensation was created here last night over the development of J. A. Ball, the good looking constable of Precinct No. 1, with the wife of J. B. Pryor a barber of this city. Both parties left families.  Ball leaves a  highly respected wife, who is dangerously sick, and six children, two of them nearly grown, while the romantic Mrs. Pryor leaves a little babe not more than a year old, also a husband and two other children to mourn her departure…. Ball’s bondsmen swore out a complaint this morning against him for embezzlement of the proceeds of the sale of a stock of goods.
