John A. Faris, of this place, at
tempted to commit suicide at the
Sttlwell House at Lewisburg last
r riday night, by taking an ounce
and a half of laudanum. Mr. Faris
registered and went to his room
during the early part of the night,
and the next morning, after several
unsuccessful attempts to awaken
him for breakfast, the proprietor of
the house forced an entrance to the
room, and found him on the bed in
an unconscious condition. Physi
cians were summoned, and, after an
hour's work, he was restored to con
The following note was found on
the table in the room :
"Notify C. A. Faris, Columbia,
that I am here aud let him know by

J. A. Fakis."
"I have committed suicide."
A sealed letter addressed to his
w ife was also found on the table.
Faris left home on Tuesday morn
ing of last week, aud his family sup
posed that he had gone to his saw
mill several miles from Columbia
on the Nashville pike. The cause
of his rash act is not known. How
ever, he has been in bad luck in his
business transactions for several
years, and this, u is supposed, dis
couraged him so that he attempted
to put an end to his life.
Ho was brought home Tuesday
evening, and is still quite ill at his
home on South High street.
