Woman Becomes
Insane and Tries to
Kill Her Husband
Grand Island, Neb. Dec. 18. (Spe
cial.) Mrs. J. O. Kountze was taken
to Lincoln yesterday, accompanied by
her husband, to be placed in a sani
tarium and the fact is a chapter in
a rather sad family condition. Acting
under a peculiar halucination, the re
suit, she says, of reading "doctor
books," Mrs. Kountze arose at i
o'clock in the morning. Mr. Kountze,
who has both hands bandaged, the
result ot an injury receiving while
working in the Union Pacific shops,
felt his wife's hand stealing over his
.face. Thinking it was a caress, he
raised his arms just in time to deflect
the blow from a hand-ax. As it was he
received a deep gash below the eye.
He was sufficiently strong to get out
of bed, "Turn on a light, quiet Mrs.
Kountze and call in some neighbors
who in turn called a physician. Mrs.
Kountze explained after being placed
in custody that she was tired of life,
believed she was ill and was con
vinced from what she had read that
it was better to leave this world and
lake her husband with her. In the city
jail she tried 'to commit suicide by
attempting to cut the arteries of
her wrists. The husband and wife have
been happy and Mr. Kountze is doing
everything possible for the unfor
tunate woman. "

tiiff 'orrPSimii(i''ii( t
:. 18. (Special.) At
torney General Willis K. Reed will
ask the legislature to appropriate
$100,000 to enforce the new pro
hibitory law and authority also to re
move county attorneys who neglect
to enforce the law, according to his
report filed with the governor.
While such a large sum may not
be needed to enforce the law, accord
ing to Mr. Reed the fact that the state
has a sufficient sum to fight violations
will have a wholesome effect upon
wouldbe violators and cause them to
go slow. According to Mr. Jeed, if
the state was handicapped for funds
to carry on the fight, it would mean
that violaters would take chances in
hopes that fhc lack of funds would
prevent prosecutions. It would not
necessarially mean that such a sum
would be used, but if it was there to
use, there would be a lack of viola
tions. "
Mr. Reed has asked that the appro
priation for the purpose of carrying
on the irrigation cases and protect
tnewater users ot tne state, be made :
$50,000. There should be $10,000 ap
propriated tor the anti-trust prose
cutions and $10,000 for general prosecutions.
Lack of funds during the next year
or so to carry on prosecutions would
handicap the state severely and prove
menace to the successful termina
tion of the cases, according to the
opinion of the attorney general and
lie Hopes mat the members of the
legislature will sec that there is need '
lor tne amounts named.
