Maude Scales in Toils.
' Arrested on suspicion In connection
with thu disappearance last Monday
nlfcnt ot ICS in cash from the resi
dence of Fra ?lc P. Robertscu, SOS
South Main ntreet, but released the
following dev because of lack of evi
dence against her,' a negro women of j
many "ulalses." but who, through exi
gencies of the occasion, ls dubbed
Maud Scales, was rearrested Friday
night on charges of haM'ug stolen the
money, und according to Police Chief I
gammons, has mH0 a confession to]
flare lier Hone.
Although the polico had no evi
dence against tho uejro woman in
connection with the robbery. They
were morally certain that she had had
lethia* to do with lt. But before
roi-Juattee opinions and moral
ties, do1 not go-one moat be
able to deliver the goods, which, tn
legal parlance, is evidence of the
brand where no reasonable doubt ex
lits as to the aunt or innocence of j
lr. this instance Van Martin, con-1
stable for Magistrate B. F. Wilson, |
abd members ot the police depart
ment decided to bring luto service a
time-honored and homely blt of epl
.rramnjsttlcal wisdom, to wit. "give
THO plenty of rope and he will hans*
himself." So they decided to give
Maud Scales plenty of rope, and now
It appear? that Maud baa, figuratively
j speaking, pla cod the noose about Toar
Boufut Much Finery.
One night last week Privates 8an
' rs ?od WhUten ??arched the domi
of Maud Scales. They discovered]
tl new garments of rather ex
auspicious. But Maud had not been
given enough rope. While- Constable
Van Martin and the police rented on
their guns Maud went about the-job
of wcaUng a net about herself, BO lt
In nome way 'tBo officers' 'learried
thst Maud had made -ather extensive
purchases st s local department store.
They made an investigation but found
that the goods had been returned.
About this time tliev received a "tip"
thst a colored woman had made con
siderable purchsses from a ladled
store of the city. They investigated
this, but at first found no evidence.
'Tis true extensive- purchases bad
been mad o at this store by a negro
woman, but she did not give her name
a's Maud Scales. 'She had" purchased
gooda smountlng to 135, and had left
them ht tbe store, to be delivered lat
er. The police went a little further
with tiio investigation and learned
? hat the purchases in question hod
be?n made by Maud Scales, but under
in assumed hume, or as she would
orobably sav, s non de plume. It wai
m Interesting fact to note, that thc
-woman had requested that the pur
chsses be held there and not sent tc
A Sly "Mott,
The colics are of ?he opinion thal
Maud Scales ordered the'goods no'
sent to her house Immediately foi
'ear that the police might search hei
domicile and find them. In othei
words, they*, believe, she planned t<
wait until the "storm bad blown over'
before: taking the gooda home.
The woman was arrested. Frida;

Yesterday morning she was transfer
