ELK RIVER, Minn., Jan. 10. - Margaret Daley of St. Joseph's home was taken to Fergus Falls insane hospital yesterday by the authorities. She was examined at the office of the judge of probate. Miss Daly is a woman about 40 years old. She was received at the hospital on July 29. At the time of her arrival from Minneapolis it was noticed that she was peculiar. Her condition became worse gradually and about a week ago she became violent. She would abuse the old people at the home and in some instances threatened to kill them. The authorities became frightened and kept a close guard on her lest she should carry out some of her threats.
