Horth, Michael/ Lempke, Fred (05/11/1922)


On Friday Judge O. W. Schoengarth went to Dorchester to inquire into the mental condition of Michael Horth, a young man of 25, who had previously been examined as to his sanity and at that time considered feeble-minded. Lately he had shown more pronounced symptoms and the Judge decided to have him brought here for further examination. He was adjudged insane Saturday and committed to Mendota asylum. He was drafted during the war, but was sent home soon after being called on account of his mental condition.

On Saturday complaint was entered by residents of Lynn in regard to the supposed insanity of Fred Lempke, a bachelor aged about 40, for many years a resident of that town. He has been considered quite harmless until lately when he developed considerable violence. He was brought to Neillsville, and upon examination was also adjudged insane and committed to Mendota.
