CONVICTED UF LUNACY.
All on Account of a, Younp Lady.
Tho case of lunaoy against C. L.
Mooro which was on trial in tho
county court yesterday afternoon,
when wc went to press, was concluded
about 5 o'clock and resultod in a vor
diet of guilty. It was thought by
some that tho charge of lunaoy was
only a ruse on the part of the friends
of tho boy to sorcan him of the serious
chargo formorly made of attempting
to cash a forced check but the ovi-
donco dissipated this idea and proved
to the satisfaction ot all who ncara it a
plain oaso of mental liberation.
Dr. II. O. Black testified that he
had examined him in the jail and was
of opinion that his mind was unbal
anced on account of a young lady
named Maggio Joyce and thought ho
should be placed undor restraint. Ho
thought his mind unsound to that de
cree that he would tako his own life
if ho had an opportunity.
Mr. J. E. Mooro, the father of the
unfortunate young man, testified that
the defendant was eightocn years of
age. and had always acted very
strange. Ho had a fall when about j
eight years old which seriously atteoted
his head and subsequently had his
spine hurt by a scantling falling upon
him whioh camo near killing him and
that ho had been entirely out of his
mind frequently pinco that timo.
Mrs. M. 1. Lewis, stated that the
defendant had boarded at her house
and that Miss Magc,io Joyce, with
whom ho appeared desperately in
lovo, also lived tbore. They had fal
len out which grieved the young man
very much. He wroto a lot of letters
and asked tho young lady to address
them for him, which she did. Ono
of these letters was addressed to wit
ness and produced in court, in whioh
he regretted that ho would have to
kill himself to savo tho life of Mies
Joyce. Ho requested that sho attond
his funeral and that he bo buried by
tho side of his mother at Bosqueville.
He also stated that sho would find a
check for 500 in his trunk whioh he
desired her to havo cashed and after
taking out tho amount he was indebt
ed to her for board to turn tho re
mainder ovor to his father.
Several other witnesses wero ex
amined who considered the defendant
insane, and tho jury so found.
