that he had threatened to take her
life and the life of other persons and
had also threatened to take his own

at one time an Inmate of a hospital
for the insane. This statement, he
alleged, was the outcome of the fact
that* he had voluntarily gone to a
private hospital for treatment and had
left it of his own accord, whereas
Mrs. Teske had set up in the insanity
