inmate of the Kentucky Reform School
near this city committed suicide this

where his family live on conviction of
housebreaking about eleven months

shot in the right leg and three months
ago it became necessary to amputate
the limb just above the ankle His af
fiction did not prevent his committing
the crime of which he was convicted
but ever since he has been at the school
the injured leg has been painful and
has kept him in the hospital ward
This afternoon he was out in the yard
playing and seemed to be cheerful but
about 530 oclock he quietly slipped
back lo his room in the hospital and
after tying the doorknob to the mantle
with the bed sheet so that it could not
be easily opened he fastened one end
of his trousers belt to the bedpost and
the other end around his neck and
throwing himself off the bed was
strangled to death About 6 oclock

note which was almost undecipherable
on account of bad writing and spelling
was as follows

The Toblnsport base ball club jour
neyed to Lewisport Sunday only to be
defeated by the fast Lewisport nine by
the score of 12 to 0 Lewisport found
them easy pickings not a Pumpkin
Roller reaching third base
While Lewisport was squelching tho
first team the second team came over
here and made Otto of our patchwork
teams look like two bits and a gitney
taking the long end of a 6 to 4 score
The funny part of it was that it was
the first time some of our tOYS had ever
played in a match game and in the
ninth with two on bases one of those
unfortunates was at the bat and could
do noihing but split the sunshine
Jupiter Pluvius had to be on hand
and spoil the game with the Evansville
Gold Blooms at Hardinsburg last week
The two teams will clash Friday and
Saturday of this week
There will likely be a fast game over
the river next Sunday
The West End diamond is in fine
shape and the outfield looks like a new
mown lawn But they cant win games
without practice There is material
here for the best team in the county if
they would only get together It would
give us more pleasure than a fried
chicken dinner to get that Hardinsburg
bunch down Iere and give them a good
trouncing Will our team ever coma
