LADY SENT TO PRISON. An extraordinary case of theft came before the magistrates at the Salford Police-court on Thursday, Fanny Jackson, a good-looking. fashionably-dressed, married woman, about 25 years of age, being charged with stealing three gold rings of the value of S16 from the house of Mrs. Ada Thomas.—It was stated that she entered Mrs. Thomas's house, which was next door to her own, and took the rings from a drawer in the bedroom. She at first told a, story about seeing a strange man near the house, but afterwards admitted the theft.—The solicitor for the defence said the charge was a most painful one. It was one of those eases which could only be accounted for by a person eing led away by some temporary aberration. Prisoner was the wife of an engineer, and was respectably connected, and there was no reason whatever why i-ho should have done such s thing. He hoped the magistrate would see his way to inflict a fine, instead of sending her to prison.—The Stipendiary said when he looked at all the circumstances of the case he could not do that. However, a short term of impri- sonment to a "woman in the prisoner's position would, no doubt, be a severe punishment. yhe would be sent to prison for a month, with hard labour. >$
