GIRL IS A FIREBUG. Anna Foy Say* She 1» Sel*ed with Desire to Burn Something. An abnormal twist in the psychological psychological processes of Anna Foy, a pretty pretty 16-year-old girl, is indicated by a confession to the police in Newport, R. I., that she is a fire bug. The girl, who was employed as a maid in the home of George W. Ritchie, told the police she was subject to violent nervous nervous attacks, during which she felt she must set something afire, so she set fire to the Ritchie house. In each case she applied the match in broad daylight daylight and helped to fight the blaze after an alarm had been given.
