An Investlgatlon of the case by Corona r Healy ihOWed that the man and hls wife had dle.l as the result of g sulcide pact. Both BchufRaj and his wife were in the last stages of tuberculosls. They were told by doctors that tha*y had only a few more weeks to li*e. lt was the woman who evidently malntaiped her courage to the last, when her hugband's det.rmlnation faliered. Although he had started to write several of the notes found in the room lt was Mrs. Schufflny who had ttnlshed them. For twenty >ears Schufflay had been cmployed as shipping clerk in a OOTUet facory at 18th street and ? Broadway. Nine weeks ago his physleian told hlm he had but nine weeks to llve, and ad vlsed him to give up his work. On Tuesday night Schufflay invited Bernard Petzold. of No. 815 Tin'on avenue, an old friend. to go to a caf near by and drink wine with him. Pet zcld was surprised when hls frlend or? dered several bottlea of charr-pagne. As they part.-d Schufflay asked Petzuld to tell Dr. Albert Kabbe, of No. Mi East 17(lth street, to call around at his home the next night. The idiysl'ian's \lsit revealed the auiclde. One note, to the I'oroner, and written in the man's hand, said. "I have agreed with my wife to give up this llfa of agony. The doctor glves me only nine weeks to iive. I can't staml the agony any longer. and my wife is the saim."
