WILL FARLINGER BECOMES
HOUSE Tit EM' NOW
LANGUISHES IN .TAIL
Will Fabllnger was brought In from
Garfield precinct yesterday by Sher
iff Salisbury In a violently inaano con
dition. Ho was placed In a cell room
at the county Jail nnd will have a
hearing before the board of Insanity
Fabllnger became mentally derang
ed while serving as a Jurtor In the dis
trict court week before last. Ho is a
young man, married last June, and
under normal conditions Is n very
quiet, unassuming individual. lie was
devotedly religious and it is thought
that the evidence in the James nnd
Fear cases, on both of which ho sat
as a juror, shpeked his religious sens
itiveness and deranged his mind. The
cases involved the lionor of women,
and the testimony was consequently
at times such as to shock a man of
modest and retiring disposition. At
least this Is the supposed cause of
Fabllnger's Insanity, for prior to com
ing to North Platte to attend cour.t he
gave no evidence of mental derange
ment. The case is one that saddens all the
acquaintances of the afflicted man.
