Woman Sent to Workhouse.

Mrs. Carry Perry-Rorick had the police court to herself yesterday morning. She was arraigned on a charge of intoxication and was fined $5 and costs. She was unable to pay the fine and was sent down to the workhouse for 10 ½ days. The Rorick woman, who was only recently married, is addicted to the booze habit and was arrested on the levee Thursday morning by Officer Tom Ryan. It was thought best to send her down to the workhouse and give her a chance to sober up.
