FOLLOWS SANITY TRIAL
W. D. Montgomery Asks Courts to
Straighten His Tangled Affairs.
; William D. Montgomery, former pro
prietor of the Lincoln hotel, who three
weeks. . ago, j .under peculiar circum
stances, was sent to the Insane ward at
the county hospital on a charge of in
sanity, preferred by. his foster daughter,
was released . "Wednesday and yesterday
filed a, petition in bankruptcy in the
United States district* court." His lia
bilities are placed at $2316.28 ! and his
assets at $2214.15. ■•' • •■ : -
i Following 1 Montgomery's. first appear
ance before '■ . the Insane commission,
which continued his trial for two weeks,
sensational assertions regarding the
conditions' under • which his hotel was
sold .and' the causes which led to his
confinement, in a cell of - the insane
ward, at the. county hospital, became
public. . . ' . : . ■ ' ..
I Ostensibly. ■ the v bill, of sale showed
that the Lincoln hotel had been sold to
Mrs. Belle McWilliams for $6900. ' Later,
Dr. Vaughn, who had arrange/! the sale,
acting -for ' Montgomery J under power of
attorney,'- explained that r the sale was
for $6900 and a rooming house valued at
$1100, ; which was. not inbluded in the
bill of sale but which had been turned
over to ■ his (Vaughn's) | daughter on a
claim' of indebtedness.
i The wholesalers' board of trade, which
is Montgomery's principal creditor,
learned .the . , facts and Montgomery's
petition of bankruptcy is expected to
bring out the inside history of the
affair. . ,
After Montgomery had been in the
hospital for twenty-four hours physi
cians there gave it as their opinion that
he was perfectly sane, but his release
was not ' possible until his hearing be
fore the' commission yesterday.

Ab«olut«ly Confidential and Free
There can be no more terrible ordeal
to a delicate, sensitive, refined woman
than to be obliged to answer certain
questions in regard to her prirate ills,
even when those questions are asked
by her family physician, and many
continue to suffer rather than submit
to examinations which so many physl-
clans propose in order to intelligently
treat the disea«e ; and this is the rea-
son why so many physicians fail to
cure female disease.
This is also the reason why thousands
npon thousands of women are corre-
sponding with Mrs. Pinkham. at Lynn,
Mass. To her they can confide every
detail of their illness, and from
her great knowledge, obtained from
pears of experience in treating female
Ills, Mrs. Pinkham can advfce women
more wisely than the local physician.
