tffie Suicide ertti
Can a person be Influenced to commit suicide by a word spoken at the
That Is the question to be decided In the trial of Fred H. Maglll, charged
Mm. Mna-lll committed suicide nd It Is alleged that her husband by
tits words spoken at a time when the woman was suffering from meloncholla,
caused her to take her own life.
The case promises to be one as deeply Interesting In a morbid way a
the Thaw trial, the Loving trial of Kentucky or the Haywood trial now on In
And It brings before the public forcibly, the subject of suicides In general
and the suicide germ in particular.
While the Maglll case will be Interesting as a mere murder trial, the
greater Interest by far, will be' the testimony to show that suicide Is a mania
and that suicide can be prevented or encouraged by the mere use of word.
.Those at all familiar with police work In the larger cities of the coun
try know that suicide Is Increasing at a rapid rate.
Tike for Instance the police reporter of the larger papers.
The average police reporter on a metropolitan dally looks upon suicide
m a part of a day's routine. Suicide Is more common than murder. ' It
Is the most common form of taking human life among human beings. Self
destruction haa reached a stage where It Is attracting considerable attention
at the hands of students of men and things.
Suicide also goes In epidemics. As told In a newspaper, suicide Is
usually stripped of some of hs horrors. The police reporter, clever as he
must be at portraying In words, can not picture the victim of self-destruction,
as the victims appears. Newspaper Ink can not tell the terrible mind
struggle that precedes the crack of the pistol, the gulp of carbolic acid or
other poison or thep lunge from the third story of a building to death.
But the average police reporter after a few years In the mill learns to
know that half of the poor devils who practice self destruction do not do so
because of physical suffering or physical want.
It Is safe to say that nine out of ten end their lives because of mental
".r nation or derangement.
There Is and there exists a' well defined suicide germ. It is the germ
which once entering he weakened mind, Intrudes Itself upon the thoughts
until a temporary abbcratlon ensues and suicide follows.
This Is dealing with suicide In cold facts, bereft of all the misery, sick
ness, poverty, sin, shame and crime that generally are Interwoven In most
In nine cases out of ten, where self destruction results, suicide could
be obviated at the critical moment by one word, kindly and feeling spoken.
The wpuld-be eulclde does not have time to think. He is whirled along
by the-apparently resistless tide of the city for the city produces the great
er number of suicides.
Did the average person contemplating self destruction but sit down and
think alone and In quiet really think of what life Is, what life requires and
what life holds, half the suicides would be averted.
But the average suicide does not think. He broods. His troubles
press down upon him and In his mentally weak condition he does not pause
to look at a brighter side.
The Salvation Army has opened a suicide bureau In nearly all of the
large cities. The results have been astounding. Would-be suicides have
entered one of these bureaus In the depth of despondency and left deter
mined to live for the pure sake of living and working.
The average suicide first becomes a slave to his own fears often
groundless. A cheery word, a little help, a chance a fighting chance, would
aave him. One word, rightly spoken would break the thread of the sul
cldlal abberatlon. '
That a cross word, a depressing atmosphere and a sense of helplessness
can and often do result in self destruction, is a fact too well known to the
average member of a police department and to the average police reporter,
to be successfully contradicted.
But for the first time in the history of a court, a man Is to be tried on
the charge of using these means to influence a mentally weakened woman to
end her life that he might chose another wife.
The case, while morbid Is deeply
sion the suicide germ. It will undoubtedly reveal whether or not a person
can be Influenced at the critical moment, for or against self destruction and
whether such influence. If It be of a
murder, under the laws of the I'nited
Suicide, such as the self destruction of Mrs. Maglll Is most common.
It happens every day. The Salvation
onstnated that suicide can usually be averted by a kind word. It Is now to
be proven In court that suicide can be produced by an unkind or depressing
word and If so, If such a word is the
The railroads will now have a chance to point their fingers at the ship
companies of the Pacific and say:'"We're not the only ones." The terrible
collision off the Pacific coast, which resulted in a death list of nearly 100
persons. Is certainly a warning to ship officers to observe more care In the
future in the1 operation of their vessels. Those who have been up and down
the coast line of the Pacific and who have heard the fog horns blowing dur
ing a fog, are at loss to understand how two vessels could collide under such
circumstances if proper care had been

DAILY SHORT STORIES

(Ity Ron Allen.)
Hannah Proctor was blind, an In
mate of the city infirmary. Outward
ly she was happy, ror her sightless
eyes could not express the longing
In her heart. Those around the In
stitution thought she had forgotten
the past. They did not know In
the mother's breast was a longing for
her boy, who had been taken away
to prison years ago. He had sinned;
One of Jim's old coats was the
only thing she had to remind her of

They said It was a falling mind.

Jim Proctor had broken his moth
er's heart. He worked In a bank.
His salary was not large, but enough
o care for his mother. His father
died when Jim was young.
One night Jim did not come home
to supper. His mother worried her
self sick. The next day she read it
In the papers. Tbe bank had been
robbed of $15.000 Jim had fallen.
Jim was sentenced to 10 years In
Mrs. Proctor had taken In sewing.
Night work ruined her eyesight; she
was sent to the Infirmary, blind.
Jim would be out of prison In a
few weeks. His mother had kept
track of the time.
She waited for the attendant to
come, hoping she would bring a let
ter. The woman came In a bad hu
mor. Mrs. Proctor held her boy's
coat in her arms.
'Here, you old fool,' 'growled the
woman; "what are you always cod
d'.lng that thing for?"
Why, that s my Jim s coat," an

'It's time you gave that up," said
the woman, grabbing the coat out jf

at her feet.
'So! That s why you wanted to
keep the rag. It is? Cheating the
ity out of your keep. Mothers love!
Huh! I'll see to this." She left tlie
old woman too frightened to speak.
The officials decided the 1110

put to the credit of the infirmary
Mrs. Proctor sat alone In her room
that night. The money she had sav
ed to care for her son until he found
work had been taken from her. Shs
knew that it would be hard for him
to get work. She would go to the
mayor and beg the money back.
For the first time she thought per
haps Jim might not come. She cried
herself to sleep.
A letter came next morning. She
asked the woman to read It. It was
from hhn. He would come that diy.
Mrs. Proctor gasped as she heard
t!ie' words. She could not realize
hjw soon her boy would be with her,

withered hands. ,

The superintendent caught her and
carried her to a chair. Then he left.
Mrs. Proctor arose and stood, sway
ing unsteadily, her face covered by
her thin hands, as Bhe prayed for
the tears that would not come.
"Jim," she muttered. "Jim -my
boy dead. Oh! " The tense tones
ended In a low moan.
"My boy my little boy you
didn't come to me!" She fell on
her knees at the side of the bed.
"Thy Kingdom Come Thy Will
He Done!" her voice choked.
She pitched forward.
An hour later they found her.
They carried her to a room close by.
It was the Room of Death.
