BURIED AT SACRAMENTO.
Nellie Callahan Smith Her Death Re
sult of Temporary Insanity.'
Details of the death of Nellie
Callahan Smith as, told in the Sac
ramento Union explain to her many
friends that her death was the re
sult of temporary insanity. Her
terrible experiences in the ban
Francisco earthquake, in which she
was alone with her little son, left
her a nervous wreck, in which she
was wont to attach over-importance
to trivial things. Witb her hus
band and lmle son. she lived in a
flat on M street, Sacramentc. Her
husband is a commercial traveler
and at the time of her death was at
EuTeka, C alifornia. ,
Two months before, neighbor
hood gossips had broagbt on a row
and some of the people in the house
charged Mrs. Sinih with spreading
the reports. Mrs. Smith was not
the person as has since developed,
and she smarted much under the
false accusation iShe magnified
the facts in her mind, and so brood
ed over them that she became men
tally unbalanced. The morning of
her death, she appeared on the
back porch of the flat and fired a
revolver off at a mirk, apparently
to test it. A D. Carter, occupying
the second floor flat approached
the rtar door to Mrs., Smith's
apartments and endeavored to rea
son with her, trying to get the re
volver. He was od the porch and
she inside, with a screen door be
tween them. A policeman joined
Carter and they used every power
of persuasion', but she warned them
to approach no closer or she would
shoot them and then shoot herself.
A patrol wagon and additional men
was sent for, and on their arrival,
it was planned to attack tbe bouse
from the front, and overpower Mrs.
Smith, who bv this time was show
ing all symptoms of violent insani
ty. She apparently divined their
purpose, and as they were about to
bieak down the door in front, the
rear door was suddenly slammed
shut, at d a a om?nt later the muffled
rej ort of the revolver told the mel
ancholly story. She was found on
a couch, and died a few minutes
later. The ball entered .the body
just above the heart.' A few mut
tered words, showing that in death
her bitterness toward those who
had unjustly charged here with
spreading ie gossip, was an all
consuming force. ' Since the death
of Mrs. Smith, a neighbor, Mrs. S.
Thomas, has publicly stated that
Mrs. Smith was innocent and that
she, herself, was responsible for the
lyittle Robert was at schco' when
the death fell, and is as yet igno
rant of bis mother's fate. He has
not seen her Mnce he left for school
that morning. He is at the home of
Mr. and Mrs. Callahan in this city,
where he will .remain indefinitely.
Several notes were left by Mrs,
Smith, all of which give evidence of
mental disturbance, though they
are mostly intelligible. She was
buried at Sacramento. . Relativ s
and her many friends in this city
are deeply moved by her sad fate.
She was one of the most popular
young women that ever lived in
