Dumping Ground For Insane
Jamestown — An insane man was found wandering about at Spiritwood last week. He is a stranger in the county and is badly demented, knowing little about his own condition, being unable to furnish the authorities any information as to his former residence. He gives his name as Charley Swanson and says he has been mining in several places. He will eat nothing but bread and drink nothing but water. This is another case of insane persons being found near Spiritwood. It appears that they are shipped in from some other locality and dropped off there to be picked up by the county authorities. The sanity board will consider the case and endeavor to learn the nam's legal residence.
