TOOK CARBOLIC ACID.
A Roanoke Man Attempts to KU1 Him?
self in Cincinnati.
Tho Cincinnati Post, of last Tuesday,
contains an account of tho attempted
suicide In that city on last Monday morn?
ing of Edward Ephraim, a former resi?
dent "of Roanoke and a brother Mr.
Ephraim, of Goodman Bros., Salem ave?
nue. The unfortunate man was at one
time employed by the same firm that his
brother Is now workiug for, and was af?
terwards with M. Schiller, the Salem
avenue clothier. He left hero some two
or three months ago.
According to the account of the Post,
he was stopping at a lodging house, No.
70S John street, and had been there about
two weeks. At G o'clock last Monday
morning, .Tames Shelter, /one of tho
boarders who works at night, heard
groans in one of the rooms on the upper
floor and went to Investigate. He located
the sounds in Ephralm's room and called
on him to open the door; but receiving no
answer he forced an entrance and found
Ephraim apparently iu a dying condition.
Ho detected the smell of carbolic acid
and discovered that the suffering man
had drank the contents of an ounce but?
tle of the terrblle liquid. A note on the
table requested that the remains be bur?
ied In tho Jewish Cemetery, and on a pa?
per in which Ephraim had some clothes
wrapped his address was given as Knox
Shelter dispatched a messeuger for a
patrol wagon, and the man was conveyed
to the hospital with the expectation that
ho would not live. On Tuesday, how?
ever, he was still alive, and tho Post, of
Wednesday, stated that he was In a dan?
gerous condition, his stomach and throat
being so badly burned by the acid that
the physicians attending him did not
think he would recover. While at the
boarding house Ephraim never talked or
made friends, and his business was not
known. He, however, always had money,
and iu his pocket the sum of $40.80 was
