Laboring under the caliucination

n by a woman with whom he is in
love, Alfred Berg, aged 'l years, a
resident of this city, has been locked
ip at the county Jail since Saturday.
His talk is rambling an incoherent
and would indicate that he Is not right
mentally. Upon being kicked in a
oeli he began tearing up the bed. He
swears one minute and offers a sup
ilication the nest as his wandering
mind leads him. He says thai he is
under the control of a lady whom ho
met at a revival meeting here last
all, and that she gained her power
over him at that time.
Saturday he went Into the Rock
Island house, begging for alms among
tie- traveling men. Being unable to

the walls to which they were nailed.
Two are known to have registered 108

There were no heat prostrations re
ported by the doctors. Few persons
whose duty did not compel them to do
so ventured out during the afternoon,
hanging close to the cool spots in the
bouse or on the lawn or back yard. In
