Halride of Maaie Profewtar. The Jefferson City (Mo.) Times ears: " While friends are meeting each other after a lonf! absence, and joyous (treet init seems to be lighting np our city, there at the home of Mrs. Weiss lie the remains of the talented young .rred. Ul.lot,ni,i0 wl.n hpoanie tired of earth and voluntarily lelt it. A few minutes ufter two o clock 011 Monday night last an exciting rumor caused us to go to the office of Messrs. Jiu.-h & Keekers, where we were shocked by the sad spec tacle of our esteemed music teacher a corpse and blood running from a bullet hole in the center of Ins forehead. " We learned the following facts from his friend Mr. Bush, and the kind family with whom he boarded: He eaine from St. Louis to this city about four weeks ago, and commenced teaching music to a full school. He was ufllicted with dys pepsia when he came, and soon became ho debilitated that he had to abandon his school. This seemed to discourage him very much, and he often, within the last week, snoke dcKpondingly of his future heulth and prosperity on earth said he did not expect to ever be relieved ot the pains he suffered in the body, and even in an instance or two intimated that he was weary of this life. The day of his death he was under the influence of considerablj fever. At about two o'clock be crossed the street from his boarding-house t6 the office of Hush A Beckers, lumbermen, with whom he daily associated; he passed through the office to a small bed room in the rear, and niter lying down upon a lounge asked the gentlemen in Uie office to close the diK.r and let hira rest. The door was closed: and in less than ten minutes from the time he entered the office he had taken a pistol from a desk iu the room and shot himself as he lay pros trate on the lounge, lie died imme diately, of course. He was undoubtedly partially deranged by fever, although the fact was not noticed as be passed through the office. His friends observed that he was trembling by exhaustive fever, but did not hnve an opportunity to know the Ktnte of his mind. " An inquest was held iu the evening, and the verdict was in accordance with the facts above stated. -" Professor Schleuning was an ex emolarr voungman, temperate, reserved, and a ripe scholar. He managed a pub lic concert at Schmidt 1 Hull, on the 1(3(0 of August for the benefit of the pub lic school, which received the praise of oil who attended." Where be I'a.hlans are rests.
