Officer Single arrested a woman named Abby Schoneboom yesterday on a charge of petty larceny. She is accused of stealing a horse blanket, the property of the J. G. Cohn Company, from Nelson's stable, and some potatoes, the property of some unknown person. Schoneboom, who is already known to the police as a flim-flam operator, seems to have fallen on hard times.

She wandered into the Palm saloon last night in a festive mood and hooked a bottle of Tippecanoe whiskey while the barkeep's back was turned. The barkeep turned around just in time to see Schoneboom beating it for the door, but although he gave chase, she made a getaway. Schoneboom, who is pockmarked and easily identifiable, was later found by Officer Aldrich in the darkest corner of the Gilt Edge saloon, lubricating her spark plug. She has been charged with drunkenness and theft, and will appear in court on Thursday.
