Shreveport, Oct. 18. One of the
most novel modes of committing sui
cide was put into execution near this
city jesterday evening by a man nam
ed John Jiurbndge. The particulars
surrounding the occurrence are as
On Tuesday the 9th instant, a man
in reduced circumstances and clad in
a suit more or less worn was admitted
in the Charity Hospital under the
name of Joe Harris. He said he was
from Mississippi and was thirty-two
years of age. He lett the hospital the
next day. He remained in the city
until a few Jnights igo, when he dis
appeared. Yesterday morning at an early hour
a colored man reported to District
Attorney Shepherd that there was a
white man on his place in a bad con
dition. He was ordered to have him
brought to town at once, which was
Arriving here with the unfortunate
man, the colored man iurther stated
that on Tuesday evening the man call
edonhimfor something to eat: that
he led the man, who, after eating, con
cluded to sleep in a cotton house
During the night he was aroused
several times by the man, whom he
found yesterday morning roaming in a
cotton field. The man told him that
he had driven a tenpenny nail into his
brain .and wanted to die.
Being questioned regarding this
statement the unfortunate man, who
was yet rational, cenversed freely. He
said his name was John Burbridge.
and that the statement was true.
Having been apprised of the man's
condition Dr. Clay, surgeon of the
hospital, ordered his removal to that
On reaching the hospital Burbridge
was put under the influence of chloro.
form and the nail in his brain removed
by Dr. Clay, in the presence of Drs.
Coty, Gray, Lyon, Ford and Ashton.
Up to the time Burbridge was chloro
formed he seemed to retain his full
.senses, and jocularly referred to his
chances of recovery, which were hope
less. He died this evening at 4:25
o'clock. Burbridge has visited this
city on several occasions and once be
fore attempted suicide by hanging.

St. Louis, Oct. 18. George ,B.
Hawkcs and Annie M. Mathews elop
ed from West Gardner Mass., last Wed
nesday and landed in a St. Louis po
lice station last night. Hawkes was
arrested while trying to dispose of
seven gold watches. He told the po
lice his right name and said he was
the son of Geo. P. Hawkcs, a jewelry
dealer at West Gardner. The joung
lady was lm swecthart, and learning
that there would be objections to the
marriage he met the girl by appoint
ment in Boston last Wednesday. He
could only find $100 in cash, so he
packed his vahse of jewelry, which
was to be sacrificed to dedefray the
expenses of the honey-moon. The
pair went first to Chicago and then
came to this city, where they were
married yesterday morning. Tele
grams from the elder Hawkcs seemed
the release of the son to-day.

Dallas, Oct. 18. The eighth day
of the fair, known as "press day,"
opened up rather ugly this morning.
For a long time it looked like it might
ram and spoil the fun. but it didn't.
The attendance was largely increased,
At 10 o'clock all the departments were
pretty well crowded. The fine stock
exhibited in the arena constitute a
feature of never failing interest Most
of the blue ribbons will remain in the
state. The concerts and-races were
the features of to-day. This was
press day. The Pi ess club of Dallas
flickered in arranging a programme
and securing a speaker for the occa
sion. The fact is they failed altogether
in sending out invitations, to the edit'
ors to gather here to-day, and the ed
ltors tltun't gatner. About six were
here and their presence seemed to be
swallow up in the vast crowds, in fact
they were lost in the shuffle. There
are over 200 fine race horses here.
To-morrow is 'Childrens' Day."
