Nov. 3o. — The NEARLY INSANE. Mn. Jlaybrlck Said to Be Broken In Blind and Health. LONDON, Nov. 24.—A high ofllcial connected with the prison at Wormwood Scrubbs tells a startling story of the pitiable condition of Mrs. Maybrick, who is confined in that institution. While she has not wholly lost her reason, the woman, who is serving a life sentence for the alleged poisoning of her husband, is closely border- Ing on insanity. She has made two attempts to take her own life, one of which was nearly successful. The omcial slates that Mrs. Maybrick will not survive another year of prison life. This is not due to harsh treatment, but the result of close confinement and mental worry. The efforts to secure her release that have been made in America have injured her, as the English home office resents anything that savors of coercion coming from pressure of a foreign power. From present indications, if Mrs. Maybrick should live that long, the official states that she will probably be released within the next year. annsal report of Daniel N.
