From The Oakland Tribune, 28 January 1899
PLUMBER WAS IN DANGER
An Insane Woman Did Not Like His Actions
Mrs. Martin Kaiser, of 572 Williams street, who was brought to the Receiving Hospital yesterday on account of her mental derangement will not be sent to an asylum at present.
Her husband will provide a private nurse for her and try to restore her reason.
He believes that she will recover if she can be kept quiet until her nervous system is improved. Mrs. Kaiser is 47 years of age and has one daughter.
She has been suffering from a nervous condition for some time, and her physician expected she would break down.
She aroused the neighborhood yesterday by chasing John Wilkins, a plumber, around the yard with a monkey wrench, yelling at the top of her voice.
