Inquiry was today made ia tbe county
court into the mental condition of Miss
Jennie Kuhns, .postmistress at Reynolds,
before a iury composed of Dr. 8 C.Plum
mer. FT. C. Harris, Charles Fiebig. F. H
Sell, E. H. Wright and F. Q. Hemenway.
The evidence adduced showed that the
patient's insanity is of about 10 days dur.
ation and is hereditary, thoustu the aber
ration in her case was due to over-work.
Her mother was twice adjourned insane,
and treated at Jacksonville, the last time
20 years ago, since when she has been of
sound mind, though an invalid physi
cally. The young woman's insanity was
superinduced by over mental exertion and
the care of her sick mother. It is of a

probably be taken to Jacksonville for
The case is particularly touching in its
nature, as Miss Kuhns is village post
mistress at Reynolds, and (welNknown to
all in the vicinity, where the .profoundest
sympalhy is felt for the unfortunate
lady. She is 32 ye&rs of age and was
always of a bright and cheerful disposi
tion. She had made some efforts of a
literary character, and to her study in
this, together with the causes heretofore
mentioned, is attributed the failure of
her mental faculties. She appears in con
stant fear of something terrible coing to
happen, in consequence of which she is
con tinually in a state c f nervous excite
ment. Her condition has been kept quiet up
to this time in hopes that a remedy might
be applied with favorable results whhout

Henry J. Frick, the popular liveryman,
stole a march on his many friends one

Thomaa Burns, Thomas McCabe, James
Edmundsonand Thomas "llogan, four
tough characters, were indulging in a
free for all fiKht on Twenty-fourth street
last evening. The police station was
notified and Officer Long, with the pa
trol wagon, responded, and landed
Burns, Edmundson and Hogan in the
Armory. McCabe. who escaped, was
picked up a little later on Sacond avenue
after he had insulted two ladies who
were passing by. James Ryan, a guard
at Rock Island arsenal, started to brine
him to the armory, but when he reached
Twentieth street McCabe concluded that
he wouldn't g any further, and a scuffle
ensued, in which McCabe got away and
ran up Twentieth street, but was stopped
at Hariz & Bahnsen's corner and held
until Ryan arrived, who again took
charge of his man. But another scuffle oc
curred in which outside parties released
McCabe who again made his escape, and
when the police officers arrived a few
moments later a crowd of Bmart alecks
who are always present on such occa
8ions. attempted to send the officers in
different directions. But McCabe wa9
captured a short time af cer by Officer
Sumlehn on First avenue and taken to
the armory. This morning Magistrate
Wivill discharged Hogan who is a nyer
man, and who claimed he had been acting
as a peace maker, and fined McCabe,
