John King, a man with a wrecked
mind. 1? the cause of the commotion
that exlata In that vicinity, and al?
though hunted by officer?, he haa elud?

ror exlata around that corner of Mt.
Elliott cemetery.
King la a powerful young fellow
of about 35 years. After his mind
gave way he waa taken to the Dear?
born retreat, but about a month ago
returned to his home In thla city.
For several weeks there was no In?
dication of anything- wrong with tbe
young man. Flut, suddenly, he began
to develop a fondness for the solitude
of the cemetery, especially at nlghL
and forsaking hla bed at home, he
climbed the bin trees among the head
atones and slept on the limb? after
the primitive fashion.
King had the Idea that the ceme?
tery rontalned a great lake and that
on its shores was the Ideal camping
place. And at night, to avoid the
beat be would ateal away to hla tree

Nelghbora who knew of the occur?

wood ?talion. Several men were de?
tailed to effect the rapture of the
young man, and nightly they have
patroled the vicinity, three or four of
them frequently being seen In that
portion where the demented man was
supposed to be.
Often King would l??ave tbe seclu?
sion of his haunts In the cemetery ?nd
walk with quick. Jerky ?trlde ?long
the walks adjacent to the cemetery.
One night, when an officer accosted
htm. King. It 1? ?aid. wheeled and
?truck the officer a violent blow, fell?
ing him to the ground, and. turning.

Th? demented man is also alleged
to have grabbed a young man by the
throat and was trying to throttle him
when other? approached and fright?
ened him so he desisted. Another
?snail boy. who was of too Inquisitive
a disposition for King, was assaulted
