Hatherleigh, petty sessions held on Wednesday before, J. H. VEALS, J. L. OLDHAM, and L. P. MADDEN Esq.s John DADDS, was formerly in the Devon Constabulary, but is now a member of the Gloucestershire Constabulary. He was stationed at Iddesleigh when in this county, and the graceful form of Miss Ann ALLEN attracted his attention. Like Enoch ARDEN he spoke his love, but it was in a letter, which was conveyed to the irresistible Ann. She was then living at Hill Farm Monk-okehampton, and acting upon the contents of John's missive she went out and met him. Into her acceptive ear he poured the "lecherous distilment" and she eventually became a mother. The interesting event probably induced DADDS to leave Devonshire, and he was now summoned to show cause why he should not contribute towards the maintenance of the child. An order was made for the payment of 1s a week, with the usual costs.
