and at one tiim drove them all out of
the house. In the morning neighbors
coming to the place found a shotgun,
with which he had procured prompt
ness in obedience to his orders, stand
ing beside the liend of his bed with a
loaded shell in one of the chambers.

sheriff's forces. He was ordered com
mitted to the Watertown hospital.
