WILD MAN, TAMED
TO GET A PENSION
Strange Case of a Soldier Who
Was Struck on the Head by
a Piece of a Shell.
Kingston, N. T., May 12.An Ulster
county sheriff's jury has determined that
John Tombs is incompetent to manage
his affairs, and with this finding is
brought to light one of the strangest
cases of suspended memory that has
ever been brought to the attention of
the medical world.
John Tombs was the son of a well-to
do farmer living in the town of Sha
wangunk when the civil war began. He
enlisted in the Orange County Bangers,
and in the early years of the war he
fought with distinguished bravery
most of the battles in which the New
York regiments took part. Toward the
latter part of the war he was hit on
the head by a piece of flying shell that
burst while passing over him and he
was carried in an unconscious condition
to the field hospital, where he was cared
for until he regained consciousness,

when his place was taken by those more
recently wounded, and he disappeared.
Eecords of the regiment showed that
he had been wounded, recovered and
then disappeared, and his comrades be
lieved that he had either been killed by
a stray bullet and buried with the unchildren
known dead, or else had wandered away
to die in some sequestered nook. After
the war his family waited vainly for
tidings of the lost member of the regi
ment. Years passed by "and the family
became smaller and smaller until finally
all had died and the Tombs family, so
far as Shawangunk knew, was extinct.
With the passing away of what was
once a large and prosperous family, the
Tombs property was sold to strangers.
They allowed the house to fall into
decay, and the once fertile farm was
turned into an immense pasture. The
house on .the hill was seldom visited ex
cept by cattle and tramps, and soon be
came a mass of moss-covered ruins.
Tombs Family Forgotten.
Years had rolled around with such
frequency that the Tombs family and
the strange disappearance of Soldier
John haa passed entirely from the
minds of the Shawangunkites the civil
war was but a faded recollection that
was refreshed each succeeding year by
the decoration of the graves of the dead
heroes on Memorial day, when rumors
began flying thick and fast around Sha
wangunk that a wild man had appeared
and taken possession of the mountains.
He was said to be half man and half
beast. Hair hung from his head and
face in wild profusion, it was said, and
the monster of the mountains, as he
was called, was credited with all kinds
of ferocity. Strange tales were told of
midnight feasts held on the mountain
top, where cattle were slaughtered and
eaten and wild orgies practiced, but at
these revels only one figure was seen
silhouetted against the blazing bonfire
that figure was the wild man.
With the passage of weeks the stories
became enlarged., The stories told by

even the most unimaginative farmers
were hair-raising in their character,
while a man or woman with a good,
healthy imagination could work auditors
into a frenzy of fear. It was said the
wild man killed, baked and ate little
of the neighborhood, and as no
body had sense enough to take a census
of the neighbormgyoungsters, the state
ment found many believers. The entire
town was terrorized.
The Wild Man Captured.
Autumn passed into winter without
the terror abating, and with the open
ing of spring the town constable had
planned to form a posse to hunt for the
wild man, when the news came from the
mountain that a party of wood chop
pers had been attacked by the mon
ster, who had been overpowered after
a long and desperate struggle. The
wild man himself and his captors fol
lowed the welcome news, and the farm
ers gathered from miles around to mar
vel at the half-man-and-half-beast who
had created such turmoil.
In many ways the stories had notartistic
been exaggerated. The farmers beheld
a strange sight. An old man, whose
white beard reached nearly to his waist
and whose unshorn locks hung from his
head to below his shoulders, huddled
in a corner beneath a weight of chains
that had been used to hold him securely.
The man muttered strange oaths and
talked incoherently of the war, of his
farm and family and of God Almighty.
Prom his ramblings it was evident that
he was insane, and as the old farmers
pressed near to peer into his features
they thought they recognized a familiar
face, but the wild man was unable to
tell his name, and they returned home
Sleep and rest in the county jail, to
which he was committed, restored to
some degree the wild man's memory,
and he said that he was John Tombs.
Old residents remembered the name and
the history of the case, and his record
was examined. It was found that his
