Tragedy at Summerton.
Summerton, Jan. 24.--Our town is
saddened by the death of Ernest Tis
dale. He has not been well for some
days, and it is the opinion that he died
from the effects of laudanum taken by
his own hand.
Yesterday morning on the arrival of
the train at the depot, he suddenly left,
and going by a friend's house, left _a
note telling of his intention to take his
life, going on then into Taw Caw Creek
swamp. subsequently, however, com
ing back up into town to his home,
where he went to bed, saying to his
wife he was bad off. Soon he was un
conscious and, although physicians
worked on him constantly, he died
about 4 this morning. Be leaves a wife
and two children, the youngest scarce
ly two weeks old. He has been. for
several years agent of the Northwes
tern railroad at this place. His re
mains will be buried at Evergreen cem
etery at 10 o'clock tomorrow morning.
The above is a particularly sad cir
cumstance for the reason that his par
ents are left in their advanced age,
bereft of all their children, the
others, Donald and Miss Lida, dying
just after reaching manhood and womn
andood. They have the sympathy of
the whole community.
