      An Impudent Theft at a Railway Station
      Caroline Beaton, a girl from Havant, was charged with stealing a parasol, of the value of 11s, the property of Mary Saunders, a servant at Yelf's Hotel, Ryde.-The prosecutrix said she was at the Shanklin Railway Station at about 3 p.m. on the previous day, and in the ladies' waiting-room she placed together a parcel and a parasol; she left the room for a minute, and on her return missed the parasol. The prisoner was in the room when the parasol was placed there. Prosecutrix went out and found the prisoner standing by the carriage-stand, and accused her of the robbery; she denied it. Prosecutrix then pulled aside prisoner's shawl, and took away from under her arm the missing parasol. When scolded by prosecutrix for her dishonesty, she replied, "You may think yourself well off that you have got it back again." They proceeded to Shanklin, and there the prisoner was given into custody.-Prisoner, who pleaded guilty and did not appear at all dismayed, was committed to hard labour for a month."

        Alleged Theft - Eli Beaton, a labourer,

      values 10s., of Mr. Roger Simmonds,
      grocer and farmer, of Purbrook, on the 1st of
      December ; and Caroline Wells was charged with
      receiving the same, knowing them to have been
      stolen. - The prosecutor stated that on the day in
      question, he went into his folw-house in the early
      morning, and found that the place had been broken
      open, and five of the birds were gone. - After
      hearing the witnesses, the Magistrates thought
      there was sufficient evidence to send the prisoners
      for trial, which was accordingly done.

        Charge of Theft. - Eli Beaton was charged with
      stealing three fowls, values 10s., the property of Mr.
      Simmonds, of Farlington, on Tuesday night, and Caroline
      Wells, his sister, a married woman living at Stakes, was
      charged with receiving the same with a guilty knowledge.
      - Only sufficient evidence was taken to justify a remand.
      This was to the effect that at the place where the fowls
      were stolen marks correspoinding to the man's footprints
      were found ; and at Mrs. Wells's house, where Beaton
      was lodging, the police discovered the remains of some
      fowls. - Beaton was remanded for 14 days in custody ; the
      woman, who was also remanded, was admitted to bail.

    Stealing 5 fowls 
    • The Hampshire Winter Assizes,
      ...
        Fowl Stealing at Farlington. - Caroline
      Wells was charged with receiving five fowls, the
      property of Roger Albert Simonds, at Farlington,
      on November 30th. - Mr. Bullen prosecuted. - This
      was a case from the last sessions, when prisoner, who
      was on bail, failed to appear. Since then she has
      been arrested on a bench warrant. Eli Beaton, her
      brother, who lodged with her, was convicted at the
      sessions of the theft of the folws, which were
      missed from prosecutor's hen-house and their remains
      foudn, ready cooked, at prisoner's, and many
      feathers in Beaton's pockets. Prisoner denied any
      knowledge of the fowls, but a search of the premises
      and her subsequent admission contradicted this
      assertion. She and her brother stated that he
      brought the fowls home ready cooked. Prisoner
      denied all guilty knowledge. - She was found
      guilty, but strongly recommended to mercy as
      she was under the influence of her brother, and was
      sentenced to six weeks' imprisonment.
