There was great excitement Monday night in the vicinity of the grocery store of Edward Rochelle, at the corner of Sixth and Heaton streets. In the residence over the store the piercing shrieks of a woman were heard and the neighbors and persons passing along the streets were attracted to the immediate vicinity.
The trouble was due, it is alleged, to the fact that Mrs. Edward Rochelle was suffering an attack of hysterics and it became necessary before she was quieted to summon two physicians. Accordingly Drs. Schumacher and Skinner were called and administered to her needs.
Mrs. Rochelle’s extreme nervous attack was due, it was further alleged, to the fact that there had been family trouble.
Mr. Rochelle has left the city.
