PARSONS, Henry Albert (38, butcher), pleaded guilty of stealing in the dwelling-house of Marie Lemasle one bag, containing a £5 Bank of England note, £4 14s. 6d. in money, and some papers, her goods and moneys.

The offence was committed in April when prosecutrix was keeping a general shop in Judd Street. Prisoner called with an order to view, the shop being for sale, and prosecutrix interviewed him in the back parlour, where she left him while she went to attend customers. Prisoner said he would call again, and after he had gone she missed the bag and money. Last month the landlord of the house where prisoner had been lodging found there was an obstruction in the w. c., and on removing it he found the torn Bank of England note, which was afterwards identified by the number as that stolen from prosecutrix. Previous convictions were proved.

Sentence, 12 months' hard labour.
