A Woman ivlio t'lccn From Imagi
New York, March 3. Somewhere
in this big city, Mrs. Whito, a protty
young woman whoso mind is deranged
is hiding to cscapo immaginary ovils.
Sbo haB her two little daughters with
her, and there is reason to believe in
her anxiety to esoapo hor husband's
fury and prevent him from finding
her little ones, sbo is starving them to
death. Mrs. White ia twenty nine
years old and has been married twelve
yoars. their eldest daughter, Stella,
is cloven years old and tho younger,
Effie, is threo. Mrs. Whito is tho
victim of professional hypnotists.
Thero is very little doubt that sho is
iusane. At 1 o'clock last night Mr.
Whito had received no information of
his wifo and children. Ho said her
mind had ben affeotod nearly five
years, Sho belioved ho intended to
kill hor and the children and would
bo suro to tell thoso sho mado a home
with that bIio flod to avoid her hus
band's cruelty, Mrs. wmto swears
that if she finds that her hiding plaeo
is likely to b discevered sho will kill
herself and children becauso sho is
honest in her msano belief that ho
intends to kill her.
