Miss Mary Merchalot, a German girl
who has ben working as a domestic
for Mrs. George Dovey, has gone
violently insane, as the probable result
of a boy's foolish praak.
The other night while Miss Merch-
alot was attending to her household
duties she was badly frightened by
bearing a boy making an unearthly
noise with a megiphone, such as some
of the Midway "epeilers" use at the
The girl s mental condition grew
rapidly worse, and she was taken out
to the poor farm, where she could re
ceive better attention. Yesterday the
commissioners of insanity adjudged
her insane, and it was necessary to
place her in jail, until she can be taken
to the asylum at Lincoln, as she acted
in a very violent manner.
The unfortunate girl has no relatives
in this section of the country, so far as
can be learned. It is said that prior
to coming to Plattsmoutb she was in
an asylum in Wisconsin, but bad been
discharged as cured. She will be taken
to Lincoln in a few days.
A Severe fctorm.
What turned out to be the worst
storm for many years, at this season,
commenced last Sunday with a mild
rain. Later in the day the wind
shifted to the northwest and all night
and all day Monday and Monday
night it alternately rained and snowed,
making the most disagreeable kind of
weather. Daring that period several
inches of snow fell aBd the roads and
walks were in a fearful condition for
travel. Many fruit and shade trees
were broken down by the heavy snow,
the damage to apple orchards being
creat. In some places the telegraph
and telephone wires were nearly all
broken, and Plattsmouth suffered con
siderably in this respect.

Miss Pittman caused a warrant t

the soldier would report at Port Om

was a deserter.
Accordingly, Sheriff Wheeler jour
neyed to Fort Omaha last Saturday

catch his man, who was preparing to
get a transfer to some Kansas regi

fort the night before, and intended to
leave as soon as possible.
The sheriff brought Walbridge to

WILLIAM V. ALLEN.
His Rise From a Derided Populist
to a Commanding Influence.
A PIOKEER II THE REFORM FIELD.
How He Fong-ht tbe Money Power Single
Handed and Alone for Fifteen
Tear Now Wield Greatest
Power In the Senate.
Nebraska has had several U"d
States senators, some of them rn OI
exceptional character and some M7
but never ontil Allen wasen' to
Washington did the peopl0' thl
state have a man in the pte who
exerted an appreciable infnce upon
the whole nation. Oufde of the
state, the other Nebra -enators
were unknown. No r M denT
that Senator Allen is a ot reputa
tion. Tne story of t rise from the
bumble place of a de? populist to
a commanding posit 1 tne greatest
parliamentary bodn the wona is or
interest to the wh nation.
When Allen fit appeared in the
senate be was t;ea wim convemps
by the lordly gftlemen who have so
long dominatethat body. Every in
sult possible va heaped upon nim Dy
the represertives of the money
power. AIM bore t all with a calm
dignity anchor some time without re
ply. Nea'J-iue. nrst time mat ne
arose in he senate, be opened his
speech vtb these words: "i Deiong
to that aespisea ana aeriaea pany
called ppulists, and I am here to ad
vocateind defend the principles which
It ha.proittulgated." That afternoon
Senaor Teller said to the writer:
"Tfcre is a good deal in that man
Al!:n of yours."
The insults of the gold advocates
were continued and every sort of agri
rating thing was said that the rules of
the senate would allow about the pop
ulist senator for weeks, until one day
when Alien was making an argument
in answer to the goldbug theory of
over production a theory which was
a gr-'at pet of theirs at that time
5eator Hoar arose and interrupted
bin, and speaking in the most insnlt
ag tone he could command said:
uDoeB not the senator think his speech
is an over production?"
Senator Allen had endured enough.
He stepped to the desk in front of
Hoar, brought his fist down upon it
and in a voice that startled every man
in the senate said: "Does the senator
intend to insult me?" Hoar gave one
glance at the flashing eyes and tower
ing form that bent toward him, arose
and made an abject apology. After
that day the insults ceased.
General attention was first attracted
to Allen upon the occasion when he
delivered the longest speech on record.
He stood there holding the floor for
fifteen hours trying to prevent action
that every economist declared would
result in a ruinous fall in prlces.bring
ing distress and ruin to thousands of
American homes, and which was the
final result. The debate on the repeal
of the purchasing clause of the Sher
man act bad gone on for some time.
Allen had prepared a speech of an
hours' length, and had secured the
floor just before the time of adjourn
ment, so as to be able to deliver It the
first thing the next morning. When
the time arrived to adjourn. Senator
Dubois arose and asked the opposition
leader why he did not move to ad
journ, and the reply came quick and
sharp: "The senate will never ad
journ until this bill is passed."
The fight was on. If a vote was
taken then, the bill would pass. Two
things were to be gained by delay.
First, a full discussion of the money
question would be secured, and there
was a possibility that the bill might
be defeated. No other senator was
prepared to take the floor, and if Allen
stopped a vote would be taken. Allen
met the emergency with a courage,
with a physical endurance and with
an ability never before equaled on a
like occasion. There were no repeti
tions, no claptrap in that fifteen hour
speech. When it appeared in the
Chicago Becord, the learning, the
logic, the way the argument was sus
tained by quotations from all the
standard economists, commended it as
one of th ablest speeches ever de
livered in that body on the money
I will never forget that night. Allen
began about 5:30 p. m. Shortly after
dark be sent his private secretary to
bis rooms and the young man soon re
turned with thirty-five or forty stand
ard works on political economy. Allen
bad read these books, and as he read
had marked with a blue pencil all the
striking passages that bore upon the
question before the senate. Aa the
night wore on, be fortified every posi
tion taken by reading lengthy pas
sages from the books which he had
piled up before him. Every quotation
bore right on the point discussed and
the printed speech had no appearance
of padding. Tne night wore slowly

mtched every movement up to that
time, but I could endure the strain
nd the foul air no longer. I sought a
couch in a committee room and laid
down and slept for two hours. At six
o'clock I came back to the senate and
there was Allen, his voice as clear and
his eyes as bright as when he began

with undiminished vigor the right of
