himself through the chest with a

himself through the heart but the
bullet was deflected by a bone and
missing the heart" passed through the
body and lodged in the back where it
was found and removed by the doctors.
The wound is quite a serious one. but

The Laundry Closed.
Owing to the inability to dispose
of the waste water from the Steam
Laundry, Mr. O'Brien, the proprietor,
reluctantly decided to close the
laundry from and after last Saturday.
The waste water has been discharg?
ed into a large dry well, but the ground
having become water soaked, there has
been recently a constant overflow from
the well. There being no sewerage
system for carrying off the water and
as the rules of the health department
forbid emptying any kind of waste
water into the open drains and ditch
es. Mr. O'Brien had no other alterna?
tive than to close the laundry and dis?
The many satisfied patrons of the
laundry will regret the closing, and
will hope that Mr. O'Brien will decide
to remove the laundry to outskirts of
the city where there is natural drain
age and will resume business in a
short time. The removal of the laun?
dry from the city would be a distinct
loss, and even if another laundry
should be established in the near
future it will be difficult to find a man
to manage it so satisfactorily as has
