I AN EMPIRE ROMANCE. I The Barmaid and the Rings. Mrs Winch, otherwise Nellie Thomas, a bar. maid, living in Alma-street, Kentish Town. was summoned at Iti-irlborougii-street by a Mr Frank Sear)e for detaining a diamond and a wedding ring. The complainant stated that he had been Acquainted with the defendant, a barmaid at the Empire Theatre, for some years past. He was aware of the fact that she was a married woman. In June last he got two riniza- a wedding and a diamond one-from a jeweller's in Oxford-street on approval. The same evening he saw the defendant and showed her the rings, remarking, "Nellie, I have got a surprise for you. I am going to be married." She rephed that they were very nice," and slipped them on one of her fingers. The complainant did not trouble to get their back, as he thought, owing to their long acquaintance, they would be safe. The following day he got drunk, and had since been in an asylum for inebriates, whence he was discharged on Thursday. He did not give the rings to the defendant, and had written asking that they should be returned. The defendant said that the rings were given to her as presents. On the magistral being informed that the rings were worth j629. he said that as the value was more than B15 the case was beyond the jurisdic- I tion of a police court, and therefore the summons would be dismissed.
