Scores of Persons Were Defrauded. Memphis. The palm reading ability of a woman who used the name of Mrs. Boswell and the gentle art of clairvoy ancy to separate gullible men and wo men of Pine Bluff from more than $15,000 in ca3h and Jewelry, was re vealed In the arrests here of a couple said to be Mr. and Mrs. John Lovell, 157 V4 Calhoun avenue.

Stewart chief of police of the same city, Mrs, Lovell waived extra dition. ,The man firmly declared that he would not go to Arkansas, but after learning that his wife had agreed to make the trip, changed his mind. The two accompanied Mr. Pate back to the Arkansas city, leaving Memphis on the Cotton Belt train. The couple will face charges of grand larceny. fwo other persons sought by the de tectives and who ara said to have worked under the name of Mr. and Mrs. Nathan Boswell made good their escape. Four persons, according to Mr. Pate, "worked" Pine Bluff Society. They announced that In the person of "Mrs. Boswell" they had a woman of mysterious gifts, a seer of the past, present and future. To her every wo man's doings were as an open book. Many walked in tsar and trembling. Working among only the elite of Pine Bluff the four obtained introduo tions to the wealthy, who were eas)l Influenced to allow their new-found ac quaintances to foretell their future. The soothsayer told the women women were their chief prey that it was necessary first that the curious sleep upon some article of worth, fine Jewelry or sura of money. After that the (mystic would sleep with the same object or roll of greenbacks under her pillow and the future would he laid bare. In some cases the patrons had no funds vailble. The second slghter in such cses would lend the near vic In sum of money, as much as $500 in some cases, to cast her enchantment over. But when the money was re turned it perforce must be supple mented with a sum, the property of the patun, In order that the telepathic cir cuit hooked up with the infinite might be completed. Nearly 50 Pine Bluff women took the bait. There were some men, too. Diamonds, rings and other valuable Jewelry and bank rolls poured in. The lay of revelation was at hand. But the qurtette was not. Reports began to drift into Pine Bluff police headquarters. Chief Stew art was loathe to believe them at first But the number and standing of the people who came to headquarters and admitted that they had been fleeced Quickly dissipated any question as to the amount of losses that had been sustained. Two allege dvictlms who came to Memphis with Chief Pat9 were taken to the cell occupied by Mrs. Lovell and quickly and positively identified her. The woman had steadily maintained that she was not tha person sought and when questioned at the Calhoun avenue address stoutly told members of the Memphis police force that she was not the person they sought She persisted In her protests when Chief Pate visited her at the police station.
