DK. THERIOT DIES
Democrat Nominee for Cor
oner Falls Victim to Ab
The body of Dr. Alex Theriot, Jr.,
Democratic nominee for coroner in
the Parish of Lafourche, and one of
the most prominent young physicians
in the State, was shipped to Lockport
for burial this morning.
Dr. Theriot succumbed to the wound
in the abdomen which he accidentally
inflicted himself a few da}'a ago at
Lock|)ort. The doctor was rmkiog
a trip through the country in answer
to a call when he caught sight of a
cove}' of birds. left his buggy to
take a shot at the birds with his re
volver, and while walking down an
embankment fell and the revolver
exploded, the bullet pene'rating his
abdomen. Dr. Theriot was brought
here in a launch and placed in the
Touro Iufirmary, but the wound was
a mortal one. He died yesterday after
noon at 3:20 o'clock, with his wife
and children at his bedside.
Dr. Tueriot was born in Lafourche
Parish thirty years ago and was just
reaching the brightest point in his ca
reer when the sad accident occurred
He was a graduate of Jefferson Col
lege, St. James Parish and of Sewant e
He completed studies both in medi
cine and in pharmacy.
Immediately upon receiving his
diplomas he returned to Lockport
and engaged ^in his practice. Later
he bought a drug store, where he was
able to fill prescriptions in addition
to his general medical work. A
young man of sterling character, he
soon attained a high position in the
opinion of his townsmen, and became
one of the most prominent young
doctors in that section of the state.
So mu h so, that h3 was forced to
run for coroner last fall.
About six years ago ' he wa3 wed
ded to Miss Laura Legendre, daugh
ter of Felix Legendre, aud three chil
dren were born to the union, all of
whom are living. Deceased is ako
survived by two brothers, Justy and
Dr. Mark Theriot and four sisters,
Mrs. H. Chauvin, Mrs. R C. Smith,
Mrs. C. L. Lallaude, 'and Mrs J. A.
Blouin. All these reside in Lafour
che parish except Dr. M. Theriot,
who lives .at Lutcher. St. James par
