At the Wigton police Court on Monday-before Mr. S. RIGG-Jane O’DONNELL, 27 married woman, no fixed abode, was charged under the Vagrancy Act with wandering about without any means of subsistence.

Supt. ROSS said that about 11:30 on Saturday night he saw prisoner in Water Street, Wigton. She was being put out of a house, and afterwards wandered about the streets trying to get into various houses. She was under the influence of drink, and had with her a child apparently about five years old. Witness took her into custody and sent the child to the workhouse. The woman had 7-1/2d in her possession.

Prisoner said she belonged to Paisley, and had come in seach of her husband who left her at Carlisle. If the Bench would let her go she would leave the district.

Prisoner was discharged, and, after invoking God's blessing on the magistrate, disappeared from view.
