Woman First Entered Matrimonial
Game When Thirteen Years Old.
Determined not to stop at the thirteen mark for fear of ill luck, Mrs. Jennie P. Bigford of Council Bluffs, respected and still attractive, has married her fourteenth husband. The latest is A. W. Townsend of Dodge, Neb., and is reported wealthy.
It was when she was just thirteen years old that the new Mrs. Townsend took her first fling in the matrimonial game. —One year later she was a widow, and the other marriages came thick and fast.
Of the thirteen suitors who led her to the altar, eleven are still living. Divorces followed almost as quickly as the marriages. She has been both plaintiff and defendant. Most of her husbands have been old soldiers.
