Minot, N. D., Dec. 27.—Mrs. Fred Johnson, who resides near Wildwood Park, was taken into custody by Deputy Sheriff Albert Nelson and Joseph Hunt and is held at the county jail on a charge of insanity. Mrs. Johnson has been working for some parties about fourten {sp} miles north of the city and was found at a neighboring place by the officers. She seems to have been possessed with a mania for telephoning and it finally became necessary for the people with whom she was staying to potify {sp} the authorities.

Her husband was notified and he states that she had been ill for several weeks at the hospital and believes the illness has affected her mind. He will prefer a charge of insanity against her and she will be examined. Mrs. Johnson is the mother of two children who are being cared for by her sister.
