A news item from Alice, Texas: "One day last week Manuel Escobar Saenz, of Santa Cruz, who has been demented for some months, disemboweled Emilio Adame, while the latter was carrying a coil of wire on his head. The fearful work was done with a pocket- knife. The walls of the abdomen were not only laid open for several inches just below the navel but the intestines were badly cut. "Dr. Layton, of Alice, was summoned and did all he could for the wounded man, but to no avail, as he died last Saturday. "The officers were notified of the occurrence and at once went after Saenz and brought him to town. Legal steps were at once instituted, and a jury pronounced him insane. He is now an inmate of the county jail, awaiting the action of the asylum management as to his admission to that institution. "The unfortunate victim in the tragedy left a family of nine children, eight of whom are girls, in very poor circumstances."
