On the 8th another sorrow came upon us. For a few days friends have noticed something rather strange in the conduct of Mitchell Woolly, son of Capt. A. F. Woolly, and today Judge Hendricks came up and empanelled a jury, and the poor unfortunate youth was adjudged a lunatic, and friends will take him to the asylum. What a grief to his father, brothers and sister. Everybody expresses great sorrow for the unfortunate one and the distressed family. Capt. Woolly is quite sick himself and we extend our sympathies to him also.
