Woman Firebug Defies Police

"A firebug, supposed to be a woman, who has been setting fires in every part of the city for the past four weeks, has scored her twentieth blaze, and the losses will run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars. Citizens are forming posses to aid the police in a search for the woman, and several hot chases have resulted, but in each instance the woman has jumped fences and dodged through alleys as though a man in woman's garb." - "Woman Firebug Defies Police," The Marshfield Times (November 17, 1905).
