Another Czolgosz Victim


Aged Woman Made Insane by President McKinley’s Death.

     BRISTOL, Conn., Nov. 19.—The assassination of President McKinley drove Mrs. William C. Webster insane. She had for twenty years been an ardent admirer of the Ohio statesman. Since his death she has told her friends that she was “Captain Hennessey, of the McKinley Brigade.”
     Mrs. Webster’s case was soon seen to be hopeless, and she was today taken to the State asylum for the insane at Middletown. She is about seventy years old.
