Frank l uderwood, says the Neva - i da Post, had rather an exciting experience Sunday with Dr. Jackson, ! whom he was employed to guard 'till the county court could miss on his 1 sanity. At times, says the Cost, the ' doctor is rather violent and difficult ' to manage and occasionally hand-1 cuffs were placed upon his wrists to 1 prevent his hauging himself or doing injury to others. Sunday morning j the handcuffs had been removed to j permit the doctor to eat his break- j last. The moment they were remov ed the doctor became violent and hurled a lamp at his guard's head, which he dodged. He then seized a heavy pitcher and smashed it over I ndcrwood's head, cuttiug a severe irash. Some time ago Dr. Jacksou spent several weeks in Butler visiting 1 - - ii. i i .1 . 1 ills sister, Jirs. i'. .uijer iuiu ittiu ily. While here he was very quiet and but few persons knew ot his af fliction, although he was kept under guard. The doctor is a hue looking man und highly educated.
