Said  She  Was  Hard-working
Woman -- Wanted  Bondsman.
         Jane Bright  was arrested by Deputy Marshal Jackson Thursday night while at the home of her son-in-law, Elmer Deevers,  in Columbia avenue, just off of South Pike street, and taken to jail.  Friday morning she was brought before  Squire VanCleve  to answer to the charge of being a woman of questionable character and to this charge she pleaded not guilty.  Her bond was fixed at $50 and she at once telephoned  William Neu, stating that she was a hard working lady and asking him to go on the bond for her, but Mr. Neu politely informed the woman that it was impossible; he was no professional bondsman and she was returned to jail to await trial next Monday morning at ten o'clock.
          The affidavit against the woman was filed on June 9th,  Lon Glore  charging her with living with  Charles Miller.  She had caused Glore's arrest on June 8th, and he entered a plea of guilty.  Not having the money to pay his fine he went to jail, but before going he made the affidavit against Mrs. Bright.  When she heard of the affidavit she immediately left town.  Glore was released from jail Friday morning.
