to a , stop on account of the slippery

While- taking this she was caught and
her arrest followed. ; .

tion this morning, and made an appar
ently vain effort to comfort her mother,
who was In charge of the matron.- '

will prosecute the woman, but .will com
pel her to pay for things she has taken.
It is said that Mrs".' Robinson was equip
ped with a number of . purchase slips

wrapping paper. When an article was
taken, sbe would wrao It ud and nut one
