A Swedish girl was taken into custody by the police yesterday charged with petty theft. The woman gave her maiden name as Emma Swanson, and said she had married seven years ago in New York to a sailor by the name of Jones who had abandoned her. She came to Evanston on Nov. 12 last and persuaded Rev. C. A. Wendell to assist her. Wendell found her a room with Mrs. Thomas F. Mahon, 1431 Elmwood Ave. The woman ransacked the house and stole a purse with $7.25 before leaving. She is reported to have stayed at the Swedish Home for Girls at 1846 Byron avenue. She persuaded Rev. Anderson to help her find lodgings with the family of S. W. Youngquist at 2322 Harrison St. where she was captured.
