A CHILD'S PINAFORE. A well-dressed woman, named Annie Gibson, of Handsworth, was charged at Bir- mingham on Monday with stealing a child'# pinafore from a shop. For the defence it wa* pleaded that the woman was not responsible1 for her actions. She had been suffering from nervous disorder, and suggested that accounted for her action. She was in a goo4 situation as clerk. When arrested she had about JE5 in her possession. There was .no conceivable reason why she should steal such a thing as a child's pinafore, for theref were no children at the house where sh# lived. Several other articles which had bee* found at the house were produced, and wemr suspected of having been stolen. Among them were a large number of new pairs of gloves. The brother said his only explana- tion was that his sister had taken advantage of the numerous sales and had bought quantity of gloves while they were cheap. The Stipendiary fined her a guinea and costs, or 21 days' imprisonment.
