Walked in Her Sleep
What Cheer, Jan. 10 - Miss Lizzie Hutchinson, who resides in the country, is ill as the result of a walk which she took in her sleep. She arose during the night, put on her shoes and set out while in a somnambulistic state, for the home of her sister, ten miles distant. She was clad in her night gown and was found by a searching party the next morning over a mile from home. She was thoroughly chilled and may yet suffer severely for her walk.
