Sad Intelligence


Relatives of an Aberdeen Farmer Try to Prove Him Insane and Gobble His Estate.

Aberdeen, Dak., June 29.— Martin Head, of Hecla, a well-to-do farmer, was examined before commissioners to determine his sanity. Head a year ago, in a fit of insanity, burned his own dwelling. He was released from Yankton a month since apparently cured. The evidence presented utterly failed to show insanity. Mrs. Head wants a divorce and a deed of the farm. Head's conversation is perfectly rational and a brother intimates that interested parties are seeing to again put him in an asylum to get him out of the way.
