Paul Sexton, a farm laborer at Min
newaukan, went violently insane a few
days since. He was taken east last
night, in oharge of Sheriff Crayon and a
deputy, to Ohaska, Minnesota, where be

wife obtained a divorce from him a year
ago and this affected him very mud.
He was an inmate of an asylum nine
years ago. While waiting for a train in
the depot he raved constantly and strag

Wheat Yield Prospects.
Geo. Game: Daring the past week
Barrett,Farnum & Co., grain merchants
of Chioago, report that some of the most
conservative and best informed people
on grain statistics say that 500 million
bushels would be a liberal estimate for
the oombined yield of winter and spring
wheat. Three hundred and fifty million
bus. is a very conservative estimate for
wheat needed for home consumption.
This year the home
that figure six million bus. now. We
have exported to foreign countries from
July 1,1898, to date, to exceed 245 mil
lion bushels. From the best authority
we learn that tbe European crop pros
pects are for 20 million quarters, or 160
million buehels less than Inst year. It
