Despondent Xorwenlnn Took Ills Own Life by Simple Method of ltetfus iuf,v to Dreathe. That It Is possible to commit suicide by simply holding one’s breath has been clearly proved by a despondent Norwegian, who recently killed him self in this very unusual manner. When he determined 10 die he closed his mouth and nostrils and by mere force of will prevented his lungs from doing their proper work. This case is the more remarkable, says the New York Herald, as there has long been a popular notion that no numan being count by mere win power stop the action of the lungs for more than one or two minutes. For this rea son it has attracted much attention, and a French writer, commenting on it, says: "To persons of good taste who are weary of life this method of commit ting suicide will certainly commend it self, one reason being because the body is not disfigured thereby, and another because the act can be committed in any place and at any time. It is (rue that sensitive or nervous persons will never he able to kill themselves in this manner, for. simple as it seems, the act of retaining one’s breath until death conies can only be performed by one who is either unusually phleg matic or endowed with a very strong will.” KNOW LITTLE OF AMERICA.
