Tuesday night. A telegram from Pen

dazed condition. Yesterday, says the re
port, Watkins acted strangely, as though
under the influence of some drug. Early
this afternoon he went to a house in the
east end of the city, thinking he was at
the ticket office, and later was found
sitting in a box car at Byer's flour mill,
some distance from the line. , When
found he said he thought he was in the
train going home. He - was conducted
out, when, be commenced , waving his
bands and acting wildly. He was fin

care of. He. was sufficiently recovered,
though very weak, at 8 o'clock, to en
able him to proceed home on the night
train. A friend took him by the arm,
got him in the bus and saw him safely
off. There was a strange look about
him when he delivered the address. His
