Mr. Whig Kennedy, an energetic and progressive farmer, who lives six miles north of this place, was brought to town Monday by his friends and relatives for the purpose of having him interdicted. For the past two years his health had been giving away and his mind has become seriously effected. He was carried to New Orleans for treatment last winter, but the physicians there could do him no good and since his return home he has been gradually growing worse. His relatives were fearful that he might do some injury to his family or other persons, and they thought it best to have him interdicted and sent to the insane asylum. Mr. Kennedy has always been a hardworking and straight-forward man, and his friends will regret to learn of his great affliction.
