TESON WILL NOT GO
TO INSANE ASYLUM,
Et. Louis County Farmer Narrowly
Escaped Incarceration Wife
Insists Ho Is Deranged.
Oliver Teson. a farmer, living In Floris
sant, narrowly escaped Incarceration in tha
St. Louis Insane Asylum last week, though
he declared, and bis statement was cor
roborated by. physicians, that he Is a sane
Teson's predicament was caused by his
wife, Mrs. Matilda Teson. Last Thursday,
accompanied by her 15-year-old daughter,
ehe appeared before the County Court at
Clayton and applied for a permit to send
her husband to the Insane asylum. She was
armed with affidavits from Doctor M. A.
Bliss of No S5S1 Olive street and John T.
Ear and Philip Aubuchon of Florissant, to
the effect that her husband had been ln
eane for seven years. The affidavits were
sworn to before JusUce James V. Settle of
Florissant, and stated. In addition, that the
Tesons were poor and needed county sup
port. Thinking that everything was all right,
the Judge Issued the permit, and sent It to
Constable Geno of Florissant, with instruc
tions to take Teson to the St. Louis Insane
Asylum, When Geno went to serve the pa
per Teson registered a vigorous protest, and
made such vehement objection that Geno
took him to Clayton to let the Judges sit
as a Board of Insanity Experts and ex
"When he appeared before them, Teson de
clared that he wasn't any crazier than the
rest of them, and the Judges concluded
that no great harm would be done If they
gave him a chance for liberty. According
ly, they permitted him to go home, say
ing they would defer matters nntll yester
day. Yesterday there were more affidavits pre
aented for the court's consideration, one of
which waa from Doctor Bliss to the ef
fect that Teson was not insane. Doctor
Bliss appeared before the court to explain
his change of opinion. He said that Teson
was subject to flu of epilepsy and that a
man In that condtUon was always liable
to commit Insane deeds. The other affidavits
were from Doctors George Le Houlller and
Frank R. Fry of Florissant. Both of them
declared that Teson was sane. Teson's
mother also appeared before tho court and
Insisted that ner son was of sound mind.
But Mrs. Teson eUU insisted that the.
was right. As soon as Mrs. Teson, Sr., got
through talking, she arose and with tears
la her eyes declared that her husband was
insane, and that to permit him to go at
large waa to Jeopardize her life.

No Money to Pay for Work After
October 31 Laborers to
Street CcmmlssIonerVarrelmann yesterday
appended another chapter to the long story
of public inconveniences that havo resulted
from tho Fhortago of funds in' the City
Treasury by announcing that street clean
ing will be entirely discontinued in all parts
of tho city after October IL
The email appropriation allowed by the
Municipal Assembly has been decreasing
gradually, until now practically no money
at all remains for street cleanlrg and tho
whole force must bo discharged. Kven tho
cleaning with tho sweeping machines will
havo to bo abandoned, although this work
Is done by contract, because the depart
ment has no money and cannot po into
debt and trust to the whims of the As
sembly for an adequate impropriation.
Mr. Varrclmann's statement that tho
work would bo slopped followed a commu
nication to Chairman Carroll of the Council
Ways and Means Committeo request
ing an additional appropriation. Mr. Var
rclmann estimates that nearly EOO.CCO will
bo required, be-yond the amount appro-pirate-d
In August, to maintain the Street
Department until April. He will need
&0.CC0 for material, another JJ0.003 for carts
and labor, another W.00O for sweeping, 513,
000 for the block cleaning and a large item
Tho following appropriations wero made
for the Street Department In the general
appropriation bill, pome of tho amounts also

greater portion of tho money assigned for
cleaning and sweeping had been exhausted
before It was appropriated.
In August the department was so crippled
financially that the cleaning and repair
force was discharged. The block patrol
system was abolished a month ago and the
sweepers, which previously had done duty
In the residence districts," were ued down
town. Now Mr. Varrclmann asserts that
ho will bo unable even to make use of the
machines and tho whole city will havo to
get along without elcanlng or sweeping,
unless another appropriation Is made by
City officials who are not In league with
City Hall politicians declare that the pres
ent deplorable condition of tho city's

confronted with ono of the most serious
problems In its history. Ihere is a detlclt
