Muenter showed her grit Her husband failed in vain for the hired man but It waa the lady who ran and got a strong rope and while her husband held the still struggling insane man she tied his wrists

able to overcome him Some who saw him thought that his condition might be due to heavy wine-drinking and not to a permanently unsettled mind TUGGED AT STRAPS At the hospital he strained the straps
