Albert Yoders, a young man living at Winterset, came to this city Friday on search for his father, who, he fears, may have met with some mishap.

Since his departure nothing has been heard of him at his home. He is about 49 years of age, round-shouldered, 6 feet 1 inch tall, weighs about 150 pounds, black whiskers and mustache. If any old soldier has any knowledge of his whereabouts he can reach Albert Yoders through this office.

Barney McDonald was arrested and locked up for safe keeping yesterday in the city cells, his actons seeming to indicate that he has become insane.

The wife runs a boarding house between Fourth and Fifth, on East Walnut, and the shock has overcome her quite. Friends of the husband visited him at headquarters during yesterday, and he conversed fluently and rationally with them. An examination will be made in his case by the Commissioners of Lunacy on Monday morning.
