PROVIDENCE, R.I., July 19.—A woman horse thief is leading the officers of South County a lively chase all over the State. She was in town last night, but early this morning she left the city. Tuesday she appeared in Westerly at E. Hodge's livery stable. She hired a fine turnout to drive to Watch Hill. She did not return that night, and Chief Coon of that town learned that she was in league with a gang of horse thieves that has operated in Connecticut. She was followed to Narragansett Pier, and there track of her was lost. The woman is twenty-nine years old and of attractive appearance.
