Elderly Man Demented
Last Monday it was found necessary to take T. T. Nelson to Des Moines, to be placed in a private hospital to be treated for a time at least, as he has been gradually failing for some time past. He is quite advanced in years and it seems very hard that such an affliction should take hold of him so late in life. He is not dangerous, but was too much of a burden for his family to take care of, so it was deemed advisable to take him to a private institution where it is hoped that a cure may be effected. He was taken in an automobile, J. T. Anderson, J. A. Knudtson, O. M. Grove and L. T. Nelson accompanying him.
