At one time he was adjudged insane and was tiken to the asyJam at Pontiac. He escaped froru there in a retnarkably cunning manner, which he nsed to relate hiinself in about these words: I told the boss that I was a fine railker and liked to inilk eows better fcban any other work. So he took me ont to tbe barn to milk. I pretended I was trying to milk and said, 'The milk won 't come; there is sornething wrong with tbe cow's teats. ' He stooped over to look.and I sent a stream of milk iuto both bis eyes. Before be eonld see I was ont of sigbt and they conldn't catch me."

Afterward she got another divorce, bnt again her ex-husband's charins were too gieat, and they were once more remarried. A third time she applied for a divorce, but the judge declined to hear the case, saying it was a waste of time to divorce and remarry the fickle pair.
