night for a possible trace of the mis?

his room uncovered. It Is believed
that he is a victim of somo form of
melancholia as he appeared greatly
depressed of late and had been under
the care of a physician. The young

which is about 18 miles from Con
As nearly as can be ascertained
Watson left his room in the Judson
college about 6 o'clock this morning
HIS roommate was asleep at the time
he left the room but awoke soon af?
ter and not finding the young man re?
ported the matter to other students
In the dormitory. An investigation
revealed the fact that Watson had
left without his collar and tie and
W itch. It was also notieed that
bottle of laudanum which the young
man was known to have bad In bis
possession for some time and which
he is thought to have used exter?
nally was missing from the room.
Several searching parties were s ?on
organized and throughout the day a
careful examination of the various
buildings on the campus, a deep ra
v.ne behind the dormitory' building
and various nooks down on the river's
edge was made. Finding no traces
of the young man In these places the
parties branched out and scoured the
surrounding Country, Information
was had that some one answering the
description of Watson was seen to
pass near the home of H. B. Tlndal
on Crescent avenue, a mile from the
university, abom 7.30 o'clock this
morning- The parties made a thor?
ough search of the country in that
section and far down the Augusta
road. No truce of the young man has
bean found up to a late hour tonight.
W. D. Watson, who was 31 years
of age, came to Furman university
about October 1. He stated that he
was g graduate of the Citadel, finish?
ing there ten years ago. From the
time he graduated up to the time he
came to Furman he taught school at
various places In Horry county. The
young man stated that he desired to
enter the Utting school and go all the
way through college, as he had found
himself s?? deficient in some branches
he wished to "begin all over again."
Since he had graduated in the Cita?
del. Watson was matriculated in the
university department. He took up
his Studies at once, having some of
his classes in the Utting school depart?
ment and some in the university. He
progressed in his studies and seemed
to be getting along in g satisfactory
About ten days ago Watson became
ill and was confined to his room until
a I.out Thursday. He made frequent
visits to a physician and seemed to
be suffering from some nervous trou?
ble, iio ask that the physician re?
quest the authorities to excuse him
froin his studies until be was better.
This was done. When Been on the
campus Thursday by one of the tit
ting school professors he seemed to be
In a very despondent mood. His com?
panions state he aided somewhat
luerly of late, seemed to be in a very
downcast mood ami worried about
something, and sometimes talked
queerly, though no one suspected
that he was In any way mentally de?
ranged. Watson was not a man of
had habits. On the contrary, he
led an exemplary life, It is under
itood that he was considering enter?
