MalcolnT jMcLennan, a freshman medical student, who has been rooming at 422 E. Kingsley street, went violently insane Wednesday. He has been sick, or rather outyof healtb, for the past eight months, and feil behind in his studies. Overwork in trying to catch up, and brooding over his ill-health, caused his mental oollapse. The flrst thing noticed about him that aroused suspicions that he -was breaking down happened a couple of days ago, when he burst into another student 's room and asked if it would be necessary for him to get a pair of tight pants to wear at the examinations in the medical department. Last evening he boarded a street car and rode back and forth, talking to everybody who happened to be a passenger. He becaine so troublesome that he had to be turned over to the pĆ³lice. Then he became violent. He was placed in jail and commenced to cali everybody "spies."

It is a most unfortunate and lamentable occurrence.
