Succumbs to His Seif-lnfiicted Wound
After Days of Suffering.
Mr. Robert Terry who shot himself
on Wednesday night, November 30th,
died at ll o'clock last Wednesday at
the Mood-Osteen Infirmary. He shot
himself in the right chest with a j
44-cahbre revolver, and while the
wound was pronounced extremely dan?
gerous several days his condition
was so favorable that his recovery was
hoped. But first part of the week there
was a change for the worse and while
he rallied slightly Wednesday morning,
there was no real improvement, and
during the afternoon and night he
steadily grew worse until the end
came Thnrsday. The deceasBd was
a son of Mr. John H. Terry, of this
county, and was in his twenty-eighth
year. He had many friend- in this
city and county who were inexpressi?
bly shocked when they beard of his
attempt to take his own life, and his
death will be genuinely regretted by
all who knew him.
He stated when he regained con?
sciousness thc day after the shooting
that he bad not the slightest recollec?
tion of shooting himself and that
there was no reason for his doing so.
I The only explanation he could offer
was that he had been drinking for sev
real days mere than he had ever done
before and that he shot himself while
crazed from drink.
i The case is one of the saddest that
has occurred in this community in a
long time, for there could be nothing
sadder than for a young man in his
prime to be cut down by his own hand.
I The inneral of Mr. Robert Terry
was held at Bethel church, near Os
I wego, at 12 o'clock Friday.
