Tbe police have a (jueer character locked up at the police station. It another of those sad cases in which young man of perhaps more than nary Intellect has lost his mind in thinking over one subject too much and Is now riding a hobby. The young man cavne here with street fakier "Montana Charley" and gives his name as Edward M. aged 26 years, of Bowling Green, county, this state. He bas been employed at Bentel Margedant's and boards at Mrs. place, 841 South Eighth street. ANAKCnVDISnoBBY. lie talks a great deal on anarchy education and the study of all through nature. Ills mind has evidently evidently been broken down under the strain of thinking constantly about anarchy and education until now, although a fairly good speaker, his thoughts expressed in words have become a perfect jumble of logic and foily.
