LITTLE NESTON. HEROIC DEED AND A SAD RESULT.âA sad case occurred here last week. A girl aged 18 years, has for some time shewn signs of aberration of intellect, and on reaching home on Tuesday in oompany with a relative, her con- duct became so marked that Mr. John B. Yeoman was called in, and under his direction the patient was at once removed to Clatterbndge Workhouse by the overseers and placed under close observa- tion. It has unfortunately been found necessary to remove her to Upton Asylum, and at the Neston Petty Sessions on Wednesday Colonel Lloyd made the necessary order. From inquiries made by our correspondent, it appears probable that the poor girl's affliction is directly traceable to an accident which occurred in August, 1890, and in which she acted in a very heroic manner. She was at that time engaged as a nurse away from Neston, and while wheeling a perambulator containing a child aged about two years, a run- away horse and cart dashed upon the party. A child aged five managed to escape, but the younger infant would undoubtedly have fallen a victim but for the nurse, who, flinging the car- riage aside, seized the reins and struggled like a true herouie to save her helpless charge, while, at the same time recklessly sacrificing" herself. snc was trampled under the horse's feet, and although badly injured, she refused to enter tho horse ambulance and walked to the hospital, where she remained an in-patient for some time. No fewer than eighteen stitches were placed in her head alone, and her friends state that owing to the shock and injury combined she has never been the same mentally, the disease eventually necessitating the serious step that has now been, adopted.
