PRETTY MARY'S WAYS. MUCH-WANTED RHYL BOARDINC-HOUSE THI EF [From the Daily Mail."] The story of bashful Mary Frazor grows more interesting as it develops. Large crowds gathered to witness her arrival in Folkestone, and her subse- quent departure, with the Chief Constable as commander of her escort. It has already been said that Mary Frazer is a well-favoured young lady, who has gone by so many names that Frazer is possibly only a last selection, and that she is believed to be one of the most daring boarding-house thieves on record. On Wednesday people who looked into Folke- stone Town Hall, thought there was a small bazaar. A large table was tastefully set out with fancy goods and jewellery. Diamond and sapphire rings, bracelets, brooches, watches, beautiful miniatures, jewel cases, and travelling bags were displayed and ticketed. They were Mary Frazer's hauls. One of the things was an Army officer's leather case, which had been cut open. Mary Frazer filled up two cheques in a book which it contained, forged the officer's name, and got considerable sums of money. Owners from all over tire country arrived in Folkestone on Wednesday to take possession of their stolen property. Mary Frazcr's way was to go to a boarding- house, take rooms, retire upstairs on the plea of being tired, and at the earliest opportunity dis. appear with the most valuable portable property within reach.
