dence on Railroad avenue, Moliue.
On a stand in his room was found an
ounce bottle of strychnine partially
emptied; on the floor lay .the cold
corpse of the old gentleman, appar
ently dead several hours. The dis
covery was made by the suicide's
son, Herman Usnnecke, who con
ducts a saloon adjacent to the house,
where both lived. '
The son was unable to explain
why the old gentleman should resort
to self-destruction, stating that he
had been around early in the day
acting in no unusual or suspicious
manner. Hanneckc closed his saloon
at 12 o'clock Saturday night and
going to the residence, where the
two batched it, made the discovery.

Others claim that the suicide had
bordered on despondency since his

Today's Chicago Chronicle in a
column and a quarter devoted to the
affliction that has befallen President
D. II. Londerback, of the Tri-City
Street Railway system, in the way of
eye troubles, says:
"While he was studying the fig
ures of a lengthy contract last
Wednesday a mist suddenly jratherd
before the eyes of President 1. H.
Louderback. of the ?orthwet?rn
F.'.evated Railroad company. A swift,
intolerable pain shot through his eye
ball and the railway magnate felt
all the terrors of approaching blind
ness. He hurried away to his doctor
and tho doctor looked very grave and
gave orders in so stern a fashion that
Mr. Londerback bad no doubt that
the matter was very serious. Hence
he at once became a tractable and
obedient patient and will -remain so
until the doctor speaks again. For
the doctor said: If you don't stop
short you may be blind.' Since
Wednesday afternoon Mr. Louder-
back has been lying in a darkened
room in his house, at 519 Dearborn
avenue. To say that the room is
darkened is not doing justice to the
dense and iuky blackness which
howrs over tllfc bed of Charles
Ycrkes' associate in business enter
prises. It 13 a peculiarly heavy and
sulTocating kind of darkness."
The Loss of One ly.
The Chronicle goes further into an
account of how 20 years ago, while
woodcock hunting. Mr. Loudcrback,
through the accidental discharge
of the gun carried by a
friend accompanying him. lost
the sight of his left eye. Tho eye
which is now troubling him is
afllictcd out of sympathy. The suf
ferer must remain in a dark room
for two weeks, and the outcome will
then be awaited with the gravest
apprehension. 1 ho Chronicle s:iys:
President Louderback's misfor
tune of 20 years ago, which is now
recurrent, has proved about the one
untoward incident in his remarkable
career as financier and street railway
magnate. His tremendous capacity
for hard work and his ability to at
tend to a vast number of details, as
well as to grapple with great prob
lems of finance, has survived despite
the suffering he has endured. Mat
ters that ordinarily would be turned
over to clerks and assistants have
received his personal attention, and
it is this eagerness to know every
thing about every question which
comes before him that caused his
breakdrown last Wednesday. He
had for days been poring over con
tracts and specifications until his al
ready shattered eight gave oiitcn.

business associates beltcre and hope
that in vijw of his present warning
and affliction be will in the future
sparo himself more and five over a
considerable portion of his routine
duties to assistant. So far as can
be learned. President Loudcrback
has never mentioned the name of the
friend of 20 years ago who is respon
se for his great misfortune. The
identity of the man is unknown out
side the circle of the president's most
immediate friends, and they uuder
stand too well Mr. Louderback's
wishes in the matter ever to speak of
it. The affair was purely accidental,
and the details of it were never very
