The trial of Clara belle McDonald, charged with attempting to murder her father-in-law, Dr. McDonald, had to be postponed again last Tuesday because the defendant had "nervous fits." Her father, Colonel Gardner, thought the fits would subside in a day or two and the case was continued until today.
Clara Belle McDonald has been acquitted of assault with intent to murder, on the ground of insanity, Clara has been set at liberty, and virtually given a license to shoot whomsever she pleases, because she is insane. A lunatic asylum would seem to be the proper place for Clara.
