SHOT HIMSELF THROUGH HEART.
Suicide of the 19-Year-Old Son of Editor
J. P. Caldwell of the Charlotte

P. Caldwell, Jr., the 1g-year-old
son of J. P. Caldwell, editor of the
Charlotte Observer, committed sui

shooting himself through the heart

second late?r the pistol shot was
fired. One of his sisters who en

revolver against his left breast, and

Young Caldwell had served two
years in the United States navy.
Since his return home a year ago,
he had had several attacks of ill
tness and suffered more or less trom
