CRUELTY IN IN A LUNATIC ASYLUM A Dalziel's telegram from Paris says :-A revolting case of cruelty on the part of the keepers of a local lunatic asylum is reported from Clermont. Toward the end of last week an inmate, nampd Maitre, showed symptoms of great excitability, and, in order to calm him, the doctor ordered him to take a soothing draught. The poor fellow objected, and had to be placed in the straight waistcoat before it could be administered. During this operation he struggled violently, and so exas- perated his keepers that they struck him savagely several times, and allowed a number of other inmates standing by, who had become greatly excited, to handle him very roughly also. Ultimately, he took the medicine, and became quieter. Two days afterwards he uied. A post-mortem examination showed he had several ribs broken, and severe internal injuries. Two keepers consequently have been arrested on the charge of causing Maitre's death by their needless brutality.
