Work.Wf Harrison, was in town Sunday on his return from delivering an insane mau to the proper authorities at ltatlidrum. Thomas Gittins is the unfortunate person who lost bis way while traveling through the mountain cast of Harrison, and for eight day* wandered in the wilderness without food or shelter. He fiually reached a small station on the Fniou Pacific called Laue. Tlie hardships lie endnred during his wanderings must have been some thing terrible, aud temporarily, at least, dethroned his reason. Several of his toes were frozen and amputatiou may be necessary. He is |>ossessed of a strange hallucination, and says that after rearhiug Lane lie went to a large water tank to slake hi* thirst, and fouud that it had been pre empted by a womau who lived under the water. She had iu her possession an electric battery witli two thin wires, attaelied to the ends of which were two fly-hooks. With these she formed a circuit through his body aud gave him seven se|>arate shocks, lie says lie was powerless and com pletely under her control, and that tiie shocks were very severe aud made him sick. Us was adjudged insane by Judge White aud placed temporarily iu a hospital.
