AN INSANE NURSE.
She irH Stark Mad. but Little Children
Were Safe In Her Charge.
"What, a quiet woman your new nurse
is, Lottie!" said Mr. S. to his wife. "1
never sa vany one so taciturn and so noise
less; do t he children like her?" "Yes; that
Is the oddest part of it," she answered.
"They are perfectly devoted to her already,
and as soon as she is alone with them she
romps aid plays just" like one of them
selves; if it were not for the sedate man
ners at ot her times, I should think her al
most too boisterous, but taken all in all
she really seems a treasure. I told Mrs.
A., with whom she lived for two years, and
who gave her an excellent character, what
a curious combination I found her, and she
seemed q iite surprised, and said that she
had never noticed anything about her par
ticularly. That just shows," added Mrs.
S. complacently, "how little people study
the character of those to whom they in
trust thei r children. 1 always make a point
of obserri og everything."
The summer weeks passed on, and the
mistress of the house had no reason to
change hur good opinion, for Sarah, as
the maid was called, seemea everything
that coul 1 be desired as a child's nurse.
Indeed, Mrs. S. felt so perfectly comfort
able about the children's welfare that,
contrary t3 her usual custom, she accepted
an invitat on to spend a few days at New
port with a friend, leaving the two little
ones entirely in Sarah's charge.
What, h iwever, was the dismay of her
husband bad herself on arriving home
somewhat early in the day to find the en
tire household wildly excited and com
pletely at a loss as to what to do for the
nurse and .he children were shut up in the
nursery, and no one had seen them that
morning. "She has been actio queeriike
ever since you wint," said the Irish but
ler. 'The children are nioiue,' sez she;
"shure, and the mistress gave them to me:'
and last night she took up provisions
enough to last a week, and they have been
shut up the re ever since."
All this was said as ther were hurrying
up stairs to the nursery. From the room
came sounds of wild singing and bursts of
childish merriment. "Thank God!" gasped
the mother, "the children are all right."
"Sarah," said her master sternly, shaking
the doorknob, "unlock the door immedi
ately." A wild, maniacal laugh was the
only answer. "Papa," called the little
ones, bearing his voice. 'And then, to their
horror, the woman seemed to become in
furiated, for they beard the heavy smash of
This was too much for the poor mother,
who in shear terror fainted away, while
Mr. 8., almost distracted, paused, fearful
of turning tae wrath of the lunatic 00 the
defenseless children it he resorted to vio
lent measures. Daring the momentary
hush -came the shrill piping of childish
voices: "Sarih, open the door, it is papa
and mamma" "Oh, mamma, Sarah is so
fanny." Ax other crash of china and a
crazy gibbering followed, and the next mo
ment the dot r gave way before the heavy
rush of the men against it. '
Quite basit e herself the now raving mad
woman Stood swinging a broken pitcher in
the air, and daring any one to touch her;
but the first thought of the father was for
his children, whe were sitting np in their
little beds calmly munching the dainties
Sarah had pi-epared for their delectation,
for fortunaU ly her madness had taken the
phase of intense devotion to them. If their
joy and mirth at her antics bad turned to
fright, however, and they had become
troublesome, the story might well have
had a tragic ending, for it took several
men to capture the raving creature, and
for several weeks she was one of the most
dangerous lunatics in Bloorainscdale.
That this cculd be a true incident in an
ordinary, everyday nursery, especially
where the mo bar was noted for her care
ful supervision of her household, seems
strange enough; but the terrifying thing
occurred only a few years ago and is still
fresh in the memories of many. New
