the other. Her discarded garments lay
upon the ground by the monument. A
crowd quickly gathered, attracted by the
unusual spectacle, but no one interfered
with her, and for two hours she kept up
her tramp about the monument, until a
policeman took her into custody. The
young woman was Miss Lillian Ebert,
well known and highly respected here.
She was suffering from a sudden attack
of insanity. "Don't you see?" she said
to the policeman, "my neck is broken ;
my little brother did" it." Miss Ebert
was taken to her home, where she is
violently insane. No cause is known for
her sudden derangement.
