her mind to return, and after tnking her

where she romped ss a little girl. In the
hope that her mind might return, but
without success, we returned home.
He carried her to her room and she

three hours, for four hours, she slept all
night and until noon next day, and when
she opened her eyes said:
"Oeorge, where am IT"
"You are home, wife." waa the reply. '
She said: "Where have you been?"
