Saturday night he drank ior heavily
than usual, and staggered into his room
about 11 o'clock. The ntxt morning he
arose before daylight and came down into
the lobby and sat by the stove for about five
minutes. He told Sau Thompson that he
intended to go back to bed and get a few
hours' sleep before rising again. He bade
Thompson good-bye and ascended the lob
by stairs. This was the last seen of him
alive. One of the bell boys saw Bagn:d go
to his room and close the door behind him.
Sunday the young man did not show up
and the hotel attachees thinking that he
was sleeping off the effects of his Saturday
night's spree, decided not to disturb him.
Yesterday morning Bagnal's room door
was still locked and up to 11 o'clock he had
not put in his appearance. A chambermaid
knocked on the door, but receiving no re
sponse, she reported the matter to Htad
Clerk Barlow. Mr. Barlow went up and
forced open the door. H" was horrified to
see the prostrate form of the young stran

was lowly oozing from the mouth of the
dead man and altogtther the spcctacie that
met the eyes of Clerk Barlow was a grue

tified and a few minutes later appeared on
the scene. The coroner after making an
examination of the room found a bottle of
laudanum on the dresser e'nd the dead
man's clothes hanging on 4.2. .': beside the
bed. On the bureau at few inche from the
poison were two rnotes written in pencil
