Action of Edward Wendell
Created Reigh of Terror
Near London.
(From Tuesday's Daily.)
          Sheriff Henry Terry  and  Deputy Sheriff Whisman  left here at 3:30 o'clock this afternoon for the purpose of taking charge of  Edward Wendell,  who was siad to be creating a reigh of terror in the vicinity of his home a mile and a half south of London, in the north part of Sugar Creek township.
          Telephone messages from London to the sheriff and to the Democrat carried the information that Wendell had frightened his neighbors to thoroly that all of them had left their homes, and it is feared he may have harmed his wife or some of the children, as there are several small children in the family.
          Wendell was once declared insane and was admitted to the insane asylum at Indianapolis, May 29, 1907, but was released from that institution February 19, 1908.  Since then he has lived with his wife and children on a farm he owns, but he has often caused trouble for his family.

          SHELBYVILLE -- Holding that the husband, Edward Wendell,  had been indiscreet, but holding both him and his wife blameless,  Coroner Inlow  has filed his verdict on the death of an infant born to the couple, which was buried by Mr. Wendell in the orchard at his home, neither doctor nor undertaker being called.  The investigation was made necessary by the rumors of "gossiping neighbors," the report said.
