LATJNDRYMAN'S NEW TRADE. Described as a laundryman, H. Thurlow, at Middlesex Sessions on Saturday, admitted a remarkable series of burglaries committed within a fortnight, although he had never been in trouble before. Counsel stated that the prisoner bad. broken into eleven houses in Paddington, and in each case stole jewellery and cash. He had also broken into a house at Kilbttrnr and another at Cricklewood. It seemed that there had been an epidemic of burglaries1 going on in Kilburn, Willesden, and Harrow. In this case the prisoner restricted his work to the Kilburn and Paddington districts. It was stated that before starting these burglaries Thurlow took his wife and two children to the Acton Workhouse, ar:d said to the porter that he found them on the roatl and they were destitute. A detective said he did not think the people in one of the streets in which the prisoner had operated went to sleep after several burglaries bad been committed. Everybody was up after him. Sentence of three years' penal servitude with two years' police supervision was passed.
