Attacked His Family
Maquoketa, April 3, - William Wetzel of Maquoketa, who was discharged from the Mt. Pleasant Hospital for the insane several months ago, where it was thought that the treatment he received had entirely cured him, in a fit of insane rage yesterday attempted to destroy the lives of his family with an axe. They escaped from the house and secured shelter among some neighbors, who promptly notified the officers of the law. He was taken to the county jail by Officer Zueg and now awaits the action of the insane commissioners.
