FORTUNE-TELLING AT BRECON, THE GIPSY AND THE BARMAID. A gipsy woman, giving the name of Rosanna Price, was brought up to the Shire Hall, on Friday (before Mr Charles Francis), and charged, under the Vagrancy Act, with fortune-telling.— Prisoner, on Thursday, went, it was said, into the bar of the King's Arms wine vaults. Brecon, and ordered half a pint of rum. The barmaic IMiss Williams) put the rum into two bottles and placed them on the counter before the gipsy woman, who, upon being asked for payment, wanted to tell the barmaid's fortune. The young woman told the dusky visitor that she did not want her future unveiled, whereupon the adept in palmistry produced a piece of paper, and requested the lady to "cross" it with two shillings. The young woman consented and put a florin in the piece of paper, and the gipsy, with the utmost despatch, transmitted the paper and its contents into her own pocket. The barmaid became alarmed, and demanded payment for the rum, but the prisoner with equal dispatch secured the two bottles of liquor by placing them in her apron, and proceeded to make her exit. The young woman's aunt arrived on the scene, and demanded payment for the rum. The pri- soner handed her the two bottles. A request made by the barmaid for the restoration of the 23 was not so successful. The prisoner denied that she had bad it, and at the same time tftrning out some coppers out of her pockets to convince the ladies that what she was stating was true. The police were then mentioned, and prisoner beat a hasty retreat, and was subsequently apprehended by P.C. Flye.—Prisoner was remanded till Mon- day next.
