GIRL'S STRANGE STORIES.
Madeline Clarke Proving a Puzzle to
New York Doctors.
A 19-year-old girl, who has been in
the city since Saturday, so far ns is
known, mid has said that she is Made
lino Church and Madeline Clarke, has
proved a puzzlo to the police, tho char
itable organization authorities who
have charge of her, and tho Bellevue
hospital physicians who put her in tho
insnne pavilion yesterday.
The young woman first told the Belle
vue physicians that her parents had
been dead a year, and sho lived with
an aunt on Franklin street, Scranton,
Penn. Tho aunt died four months ago,
sho said. About a week after that sho
said her mind became a blank, and sho
wandered out, recovering tho next day
and returning home. She said that on
Friday, while walking in Franklin
street, Scranton, she lost ull recollec
tion about who sho was or where sho
was, and she found herself next day in
New York. '
An hour after the young woman told
that story sho fell into a state of coma,
in which she remained about ten min
utes. Then, on awakening, she was
questioned further about the story, and
she astonished tho doctors by absolute
ly denying sho had ever told them any
Dr. Gregory, tho insane pavilion ex
pert, and the other doctors, could not
fathom these vagaries. The woman is
in good health, and talks rationally
when she tells a. story. Saturday
morning she called herself Madeline
Clarke, but soon declared her name to
be Madeline Church. A young man
from Scranton called at the hospital,
saying lie knew of a Madeline Clarke
