FIRE BRIGADE AND MADMAN. A novel method of subjugating a madman has been tried with success at Pontedeeirao, near Genoa. A man employed on the railway suddenly went mad. Loekinghimself in his house, the madman set to work to destroy the furniture. Articles were smashed to pieces, and those that, could not be broken were thrown out of the window, several persons in the street having narrow escapes from serious injury. Of the crowd of neighbours not one dared to attempt to break open the door, as it was feared that the madman was armed. Finally the fire brigade received a call, but not to extin- guish a fire. The firemen directed their hose on the madman, who withstood the merciless play of water for several hours, but was eventually paralysed. He was conveyed to the hospital.
