—A man thought to have been insane alarmed the residents of the northern terminus of Second avenue at midnight Saturday night. He aroused the family of Mrs. Elizabeth Aagard and the family of Godfrey Kloppe by knocking at the doors. He called upon several other families. To some he declared he was searching for a physician to attend him as he was ill and to others he declared that he was dead and desired an undertaker to bury him. Constable James T. Lounsbury, who resides in the vicinity, was aroused, but when he appeared the man had vanished.
