BY'THE GAS ROUTE
Young Man Visiting in Rock
Island Tries to Kill
UffCONSCJOTJS WHEN FOUND
Gives Alarm by Falling Oat of Bed
To Be Taken Home to
A young man, whose home is in Chi
cago, and who was visiting at the
home of erne of the prominent fami
lies of Kock Island, attempted self
destruct ion by the gas route Saturday
night, and only through early discov
ery and the immediate services of a
physician was he saved. He was un
conscious when found. His mother
arrived yesterday from Chicago and
she will take him home this week..
The suicide had been planned with
much deliberation, letters to a num
ber of relatives and friends, assigning
the reason for the determination to
shuffle off this mortal coil and bid
ding all a last farewell, having been
found on a dresser in the room.
All the members of the family he
was visiting were absent but a daugh
ter. She was awakened at 2 o'clock
Sunday morning by a noise on the
second floor 4s if someone had fallen.
She hastened to the room and was
horrified to find the young man who
is a relative stretched on the floor
Fuar Una Jets Open.
A physician was called at once by
telephone, and a friend of the family
summoned. Tt was only after all
means known to medical science had
been resorted to that the young man
was brought back to-life.
() retiring he had opened wide the
four gas jets in his room and securely
closed all doors and windows. It is
supposed in his struggle to breathe
he rolled out of the bed and fell to
the floor, giving the alarm that de
feated his purpose to die.
The 'explanation given for the at
tempted suicide is that the young
man's mind has been broken from
overstudy. He lias been unbalanced
mentally for a year or more, and on
several occasions and wandered away
from home, causing his people much
CHARLES S. DENEEN TO BE
HERE NEXT WEDNESDAY
Charles S. Deneen, another Chica
goan after the gubernatorial sealp of
Richard Yates, is to visit Kock Island
Wednesday of this week, dividing the
day between here and Moline, and
delivering an address in this city in
the evening, probably at the theatre.
Deneen has made quite a record for
himself throughout the state as
state's attorney of Cook county, and
has a large following in Chicago, al
though his strength .'is yet is not said
to amount to much in the state out
side the city on the lake.

Thursday saying he was going east of
East Moline to collect a bill from a

on his person. '.

CALL IS CLOSE ONE
Mrs. Emma South Inhales Fumes
From a Hard Coal
EARLY DISCOVERY SAVES HER
Unconscious When Members of
Household Reach Uer
Mrs. Emma South, 4415 Sixth ave
nue, had an exceedingly close call for
her life this morning from the effects
of inhaling hard coal gas. As it hap
pened, she was discovered in time, and
after an hour's unconsciousness, she
was revived and is now pronounced
out of danger.
Mrs. South occupies two rooms on
the second floor at the above number.
The lower part of the house is occu
pied by another family, with whom
she boards. Mrs. South has just pur
chased a new hard coal stove and last
night was the first time she kept lire
in it. The stove was in one room,
while she slept in the other, and the
door between them was open.
It fs presumed that through some
mistake in the regulation of the stove
it was left in such shape that gas was
generated during the latter part of
tiie night. This gas. being heavier
than the air, settled toward the floor
and did not reach the sleeper till well
toward morning. When it did she
passed from sleep into unconscious
ness. Mrs. South rises and takes break
fast each morning about 7 o'clock,
and to her regularity the fact that
she is now alive is probably due. As
she was not in her place at table this
morning another member of the fam
ily was sent to inquire the reason and
found her unconscious. Dr. E. IJrad
ford was summoned and the restora
tives administered in a short timclinrl
the desired elTeet and the patient was
placed on the road to recovery.

'Mrs. Newberg, mother of John P.
Newberg, manager of I'.lack Hawk
Inn, yesterday sustained at fall at the
Inn, where she makes her home, and
fractured her right arm at the shoul
der. The accident is particularly un
foitunate in view of the fact that- the
patient was just recovering from a
fall down stairs two weeks ago, in
which she sustained a bail scalp
wound and other mimj injuries, and
the further fact that she is S2 years
of age. Owing to her advanced years
the fracture will be very slow to
heal. It is presumed that lujth falls
were due to temporary di..iness. Dr.
Pradford is attending her.
