.Sommerc, a girl about twelve years ol
age, and whore parents reside on Ki.ith
street between Washington avenue and
Walnut street, disappeared Irom her
home yesterday under circumstances
which has led her trienls to apprehend
that she may have committed si.nie rash
and horrible act. lhe mother ol the
girl is said to be Insane, a religious
monomaniac, and at times, laboring
under an hallucination, has threatened to
kill her liuabaud and children. rJho has
beat the girl Llzsie severely. Yesterday
morning, the mother, (none ol her flis
of insanity, beat the girl unmercifully,
striking. her over tho head wiih a.stick
ol wood ami pounded her head against a
bedpost. Llzzii' afterwards went to school
but complained ol being sick, and was ex
cused by her teacher. She left the school,
bu as she did not come home at the
proper tjme search was Instituted for
her, hut up to kleven o'clock last night
Bho had not been found, uli hough ihe
houses of nil the lrlends and tequaiiiN
ances ot the family were visited with
the hope that she had taken refuge
with somu one ot them. - The father,
who is a tailor in the employ ot Mrsrs.
Smith & Ifrlnkmeyer, and tho other
members of the lauilly are in great dis
tress at the disappearance of the child,
and are teartul that harm may have
oonio to her, or that she may have com
mitted suicide. These lasts were reported
at the Bulletin onloe at a late hour
last night, and If this Item falls onder the
eyo ot any one who can give any
information of tho girl's whereabouts
they will confer a great favor on the
stricken family by reporting to them
at once. 'Wo may mention, here that
