NOT RIGHT IN HIS MIND. CURIOUS DEFENCE AT BANGOR. At Ba.ngor on Tuesday, before Mr Wil- liam Pughe and other magistrates, Thomas Ainscow, a man who formerly held a good position in the town, but who now came from the workhouse to answer a charge of drunkenness, said he was not drunk. The explanation was that he was out of his mind. He asked why if he was drunk the police did not lock him up when he called at the police station, and so prevent him from going and breaking win- dows? When he came back and put a bottle of brandy to his moutih then the police pounced on him, no doubt thinking it was poison, but he reassured them and to'ld them it, was only brandy. Then they locked him up. But he wa,s not drunk, he was only wrong in his head. Mr Clegg Are you right in your head now? Ainseow (reflectively) Well, I am com- ing to. That's what I wanted to get to the workhouse for. Mr Clegg: Are you likely to remain in the workhouse? Ainscow: I would like to stop a couple of months till I get quite right. I have no means. -Superintendent Harris sa.id that tihe de- fendant. was in the habit of gcjing to his wife's house, and it was her windows he had smashed. He had taken all the furni- ture, sold it, and spent, the money. Ainscow: That is all rsght, but I didn't spend the money. I gave it away foolish- ly. I was not right, in my mind. The Bench adjourned the charge of drunkenness and bound Ainscow over to be of good behaviour for six months, it being understood that he would go straight back to the workhouse
