A week ago last Sttut day his brother

been heard from him, und it it supposed
be has become demented and Is wan
dering over tho tbo country.
It ia supposed Hint the absenro of his
brother unbalanced Herman's mind,
and all Saturday night Herman kept up
acontinoiis homhuidmont of thoiitiiio--pliero
and malo night liiduou. Sun
day morning ho startod out in March

bor revolvers. He had not ptocciMlcil
very far when he met ''Col." A II. Wig
gins, whom he stopped and asked
wberi bis bi other Julius was, threat
ening to kill bun if he did not tell.
Wiggins dmvo to the homo of Biid
Johnson, where lio delivered some
meat, and Wobbermiu cut across the
Hold and met him thete, wlieieltoagniu
threatened to kill Wiggins if be did not
tell where his bi other was. Wiggins
pacilied Wobbermln by telling him he
would go in search of li ia brother as
soon as he bad somo breakfast, and
Wobbemin went borne.
Sheriff McArthur was'notitled and in
cotnpsny with Doputy Sara Foe and
Tbad Saunders started out to round up
tho demented man. When tboy were
within about half a mileof Wobbormin's
homo thoy met him on the road. The
sheriff stopped and shook hands with
Wobbirmin, and atttnipted to retain
his grip on him. Wobbermln broke
loose and stared to draw a revolver
which he was carrying on his left fide
attached to a ttring. Saunders had
dismounted from the carriage, and
when Wobbermln attempted to draw
bis revolver he grabbed him from
behind and disarmed him. Wobbermln
had soother revolver in his inside coat
pocket and attempted to draw that but
Saunders and Foe succeeded in captur
ing the gun.
To add to the excitement tho sheriff's
team ran away and did not stop until
they reached Wobbermin's place, where
they ran into a mowing machine and
upset the carrisge, slightly damaging
Wobbermln was landed in thecountv
jail about noon on Sunday, and on
Monday morning at 8 o'clock ho was
taken befnro the insanity board for
trial. After a brief hearing he was ad
judged insane, and Sheriff McArthur
and Deputy Foo took him to the asylum
at Lincoln on Monday.
Sunday evening Sheriff MoAithnr
and his two sons went out to Wobber
min's place, and found a loaded double
barrel shotgun sitting beside his bed.
Ho evidently meant business.
