lutions were offered before the conven

Blade Despondent by Answer Re
ceived from Mail Man.
Failure to receive a letter from one
presumably a woman in whom he
was more than ordinarily interested,
is believed to have been the motive
for Roswell Harper's attempt to end
his life at Rock Island arsenal, as re
ferred to In Saturday's Argus. He is
a private at the local army post. He
aimed a bullet at his heart. The
leaden pellet struck a rib and glanced
away from Its Intended destination
and to this is due the fact that Harper
is alive today. He Is at St. Anthony's
hospital, where he was taken imme
diately after the accident.
From the story which has been
gleaned at the arsenal. Harper came
to the barracks Saturday morning
about 9 o'clock and asked If any mail
had come for him. Upon being In
formed that nothing had arrived, he

barracks. Little was thought of this
until a shot was heard and upon rush
ing out of the place his fellow sol
diers found him lying on the sidewalk.
He was weak from the effects of the
shot, but will recover, the injury being
little more than a flesh wound because
of the fortunate deflection of the bul
