here at that time. She has been

d an immense amount of work in the

The End Came Yesterday Morning-Re

No. 6 Township, Today.
Mr. Jno. W. Norris, who drank
an ounce of Laudanum Tuesday
morning, died at his home in this
city yesterday morning. The end
was postponed for a short time by
the skill of physicians, but the dose
was too heavy and at 9.15 yester
day morning the drug got in its
deadly work.
It is not definitely known whether
Mr. Norris drank the laudanum
with the intention of ending his
life or of easirg pain. Since last
Saturday he had been quite sick,
and on Tuesday afternoon he was
very muerose and despondent. Mrs.
Norris left the room for a few min
ute and while she was out Mr.
Norris left his bed and secured a
phial of h,udanum which was in
the bureau in his room. It is
thought he drank fully an ounce.
Drs. Thos. W. Smith and P. G.
Ell sor were immediately summon
ed. They pronounced it a case of
poisoning and upon investigation
the phial told the story.
Mr. Norris for several years had
been chief clerk in J. A. Mim
naugh's dry goods and clothing
establishment. He was a very pop
ular young man and had large num
bers of friends throughout the
county and in all parts of the
