shantyboat in the west part of the
city with (ieorge Lowe and she and
Lowe were arrested for illegal co

a middle-aged confectioner of Lafay

story that was begun here a year

woman, who was then known as Ellen
Freeman, for stealing a watch from
an old soldier of Pekin. She got
away on a shantyboat with Lowe at
that time and had not lit i n heard

Lafayette lat September and led an
exemplary life, gaining' the confi
dence of people of means lliere.
Before she left Lafayette two weeks
ago. it is cl;iiincd, she broke into a
house and stole a quantity of cloth
ing, part of whieh was found in her
possession today. There were 22
floor keys found in her trunk and
the police believe she is one of the
worst female offenders that has been
apprehended here in years.

money from a number of nu u on a

charge of using 1 he mails to defraud
has been preferred against her by
her husband, who promises to prose
