Miss Sallic Ham of Darlington Takes
Her Own Life.
Darlington, Jan. 18.? Miss Sallic Ham
committed suicide here today about 2.30
o* clock. She was boarding with her
cousin, J. K. Doyle, and attending the
graded school and had just returned
from a visit to her mother, Mrs. J. F.
Ham of Timmonsville. Not the slightest
intimation on her part was given of her
intention. She was abont 10 years old
and had declared she did not intend go
ing to school any longer. Her mother
and brother came up today to see her,
and she appeared to be in her usual
spirits, and they had just dined with
her and left the house, where she was
staying, when the fatal shot was fired.
They were overtaken and notified of
the tragedy, and returned to town at
Mr. and Mrs. Doyle were dining af
ter the other members of the family,
including Miss Mam, had dined, and ai
they look their places at tho table thoy
heard a pistol sh >t ring out in the hous e.
Investigation revealed Miss Ham lying
on the floor in her room, with a smok
ing revolver by her left side, the fin
gers of her left hand burned with ; ?w
der, and a bullet hole in her chest, just
above her heart. Her clothing was on
fire at the point of entrance of the bul
let. Mrs. Doyle extinguished the fire
before it had done any damage, the
place burned being not much larger
than the bullet hole.
Miss Ham had just returned to la r
residence from a visit, with Mrs. Doyl<,
down-town, whore they had purchased
new hats, and two minutes before t! 0
fatal shot was fired she was showing
the new hats to the members of the
family with apparently much elation.
It is reported that. Miss Ham wished
to marry a young- man of the Tim
monsvillo section, and that, instead of
consenting to the marriage, her mothor
had sent her t< Darlington to . chool, hi
order to got her away from her homo,
ami to prevent, if possible, the mar
riage, to which she was very much op
Coroner.i. N. Clanton held an inquest
this afternoon, and the verdict of the
jury was that the decoased came to her
death by a solf-inflicted wound.
