PITFALLS FOR YOUTH.
The Melbourne Daily Telegraph relates the following heartless case : “A young girl giving the name of Maggie Smith, who stated she had not been long in the city, from Morrison’s near Meredith, was brought before the city justices under painful circumstances. She was arrested at the Hobson’s Bay railway station, where she was . promenading about crying and talking to herself. When taken to the City Police Station she was questioned, and stated that on the previous day she had made the acquaintance of a man, who took her to the Theatre Royal in the evening. While they were there the panic happened and frightened her very much. After they left the theatre, her acquaintance took her to a house, which she she said she could point out, and was there given something ‘bitter’ to drink. She could not remember what happened in the house, but found herself In the street in the morning. Her story left the impression that she had been drugged. She was remanded for enquiry. Her parents are dead.
