Xii ItrHtiinx Whnleicr AnslziirU for

A Thoroughly Prrniedllnteil 'ne of
Mr. IL S. llrazleton, a prominent citi
zen and worthy merchant ot Jackson,
Tennes.ee, who ariived in this city on
Saturday night, committed suicide at the
St. Charles Hotel, by takhi? laudanum
and chloroform. He took the poison on
Saturday night, but did not die till yes
terday morning at three o'clock.
Thu whole ea'e Is shrouded in the
deepest mystery, and l certainly one ot
the mo-t strange and unaccountable mis
fortunes that lias ever been recorded.
The deceased was a man of about forty-
two years of age, sandy complexion,
whiskers and mustache and of a Hue per
3Irs. llrazelton, the wife of the unfortu
nate man, a lady of refinement and cul
ture, who was sent for on Sunday morn
ing, and arrived In Cairo Sunday night
atMialt-past ten o'clock, declares the act
of her husband an entirely unaccountable
one to her. '1 o the best of her knowledge
bis business affairs were in u most nour
ishing and encouraging: condition, and
nothing so lar as domestic nffalrs nre con
cerned, has ever tninlreil I lint would
iMviupt tne deceased to such a deed, their
married life having proven one of har
mony and quietude since their union.
This assertion Is fully reiterated by a
prominent gentleman of Jackson, who
accompanied the lady to this city, a trietul
ot the deceased, who Is fully as much at
a loss In defining thu cause of thu sui
The particulars of the Journey and
death of Mr. Hrazelton, who started from
his homu on Saturday morning for this
city, as gleaned from those conversant
with the wholu atlair, are as follows :
3Irs. Hrazelton states that her husband
told her that he Intended to comu to Cairo
to transact some business, a day or two
before he started, and that lie would be
absent for several days, and that when ho
left homo alio felt perfectly at ease, be
lieving that all was right.
Capt. Matt. Hooker, a passenger con
ductor on the MlssW-l'ipi Central rail
road, states that Mr. Hrazelton got on
board his train at Jack -on, and when ho
called on him for ids ticket the deceased
told him liu had neglected to buy one at
the station, and that he would pay him
the fare in money, which he did. .Mr.
Hooker noticed nothing unusual in the
maimer of tho deccaseil, and passed on
through tho ear collecting tickets.
When the train arrived at the Illinois
Central passenger depot in tills city, at
half-pa.-t ten o'clock, Saturday night,
Mr. Hooker got oil of ilio ear with the
deceased, who asked hint wliero ho stop
ped. Thu conductor replied, "at tho St.
Charles," nud recommended Hrazelton to
go there, which lie promised lo do, say
ing that ho would he in Cairo several
days, and left Hooker on the platform of
tho station house, going in tho direc
tion of the hotel.
Before going to tho hotel, howevcr,and
after ho had the conversation alluded to
abovo with tlto conductor, he met an nt
tachc of the railroad company, and in
quired of him where ho could tlnd a drug
store. The attache referred him to Bar
clay Brothers' establishment, and turn
ing around ho went to that place, where
ho procured ol ono of the clerks two
ounces of laudanum and an ounce and a
hall of chloroform, and went out. From
here, It is supposed ho went straight to
tho hotel, where lie registered his name
in a very linn and legible hand, and asked
for a room. The clerk assigned him
room No. 37, to which hu Immediately
repaired, and w as not again heard of that
night, and tun not maKo ms appearance
At about eleven o'clock Sunday morn
lug ono of the chambermaids went to
the door ot Hrazul ton's room, nud tried
to open It, to clean the apartment, but
found tho door fastened on tho Inside, and
heard tho deceased growing. Sho at
once reported tho fact to Mr. Dean, the
clerk, who lu company with Capt.
Booker, went to tho room, and finding
their etTortx to get In fruitless, they called
one of the negro servants who they put
over tlto tritnwm, nud by thli mcniu ef
fected an entrance!
When the door was opened, Urazcttdli
was found lying on the bed, with the cov
ers pulled closely over his head. They
were removed and ho was found to be In
sensible, witli n handkerchief, saturated
with chloroform, held tight against his
Upon going to the bureau, tho two men
discovered a small vial, about half full
of chloroform, nud a now nickel-plated
live-chamber revolver, heavily loaded,
which had never been discharged.
Dr. Parker was sent for and Immedi
ately went to the hotel and used every
possible clTort to bring tho deceased to
life, remaining with l-.lm until six o'clock,
but failed In his labor. At six o'clock
Ur. Smith was called In and the two phy
sicians held a consultation, after which
they again made fruitless attempts to
bring back Hie, working from that time
on until bet ween three and four o'clock
yesterday morning, when Hrazelton
It being known that tho deceased pur
chased two ounces ot laudanum, at the
same time that hu did tho chloroform, it
is generally supposed that he drank the
former on his way from the drug store to
the hotcl,;and disposed of thu bottle, ns
thu chloroform was tho only liquid found
about the room. Thu label usually put
upou the bottles containing poison and
old by druggists had been torn off, and
about half of thu contents of tho bottle
wcro gone when It was found.
The affair has created much talk about
the city. Dr. Smith, who was with tlto
deceased from six o'clock Sunday night
until lie died, declares that he could not
have prescribed n system by which a man
could more effectually take his own life
than that adopted by Bruzlcton.niid that,
hi his opinion, the deed was coolly plan
ned and premeditated, and that he came
to this city for the purpose of carrying
out his plan.
The sorrow exhibited by the poor
grief-stricken wifu Is indeed heartrend
ing to witness, notwithstanding the un
ceasing efforts to pacify and the kindness
bestowed upon her by 3Irs. Wilcox and
other ladles ol the St. Charles. The re
mains weru embalmed and sent by ex
press yesterday to Jackson, where they
will be Interred.

to this section ol the country, to-day has
been clear, cool, pleasant and Invigor

breeze is drying them up rapidly. Tho
rains of Friday and Saturday retarded
business, and makes the volume of trans
actions lu our reports smaller than they
would otherwise have been.
