Martin Kafn. asl yc-ars. whose
Konsational attempt to destroy himself
with strychnine in front of the Ander
son boarding house last month ai
thwarted, tried asain to shuffle off this
mortal coil ;at evening in Moline. He
made two efforts, but was prevented
from carrying out his plan in each in
stance. Fntrred Saloon.
He dropped in John Hanbach's sa
loon, adjoining the police station, and
asked for a glass of pelzer. He re
quested that the water be served in
a tall glass, and he was accommodated.
He stood for some minutes gazing at
the g'.asH. and when the bartender in
quired if he intended drinking the
selzer he picked up the glass and dash
ed it against the bar. One of the frag
ments he drew across his throat in
an endeavor to sever the jugular vein,
but men in the saloon took hold of
him. and overpowered him before he
had done anything more serious than
to scratch hia neck, barely drawing
blood. He was arrested and locket
up at the police station.
During the night the sergeant heard
strange noises coming from the di
rection of the cell room and he dis
covered Kain in almost a naked con
dition. He bad removed his clothing
and torn Lis underwear in strips and
made from them a rope, with which
he had determined to strangle himself.
Kain was watched for the remainder
of the night, and this morning was
sent down to the county jail to serve
