RAY, THK OLD LIVERiMAN. Found Dead In Ue-I II or I Hour. Later What Led tp la the Tragic End The Career of One ofOur Most latere. I Ins l.mil Characters HI. Success lu Bn.lne... John L Ray, 81. tbe lone time livery man, committed suicide Saturday nieht by gas asphyxiation. He had for a long time, ever since nis retirement from bus. inese, in lact, 10 years ago, been in a morbid, melancholic state, and for a while whs st the Retreat and in a sanl txrlum io Massachusetts also. Seven dinerent times razors, which he had evi dently bought with an idea of making way with hlniselr. as he did shave himself, bad been taken awav from him. the last t i me his son was here the Fourth, finding it it. his bed. Late ly he had seemed more depressed than usual and for the last 3 or 4 days before the end had kept to his room. He had two rooms connecting on the third tloor of the hotel, and it whs his custom to leave the door of one unlocked for the chambermaid to get in. Satur day night he locked both, then closed the door connecting, closed the windows and the transom, which was so tight that it was hard work to open it when trouble was found. .n particular smell of gas w noticed by people passing along the hail, until Mrs M M Miller, another boarder, sent word to the ortice Sunday morning, that the gas was leaking some where. ThosJHeaphv, the porter, went to Investigate and also smelled gas. though not very strong.and seeming tocotne from Mr Ray's room. Gettirg no answer to a summons, and seeing tue transom clofed, MrHeaphy beut it open, when the ga came out in overpowering volume. Suicide was evident. The room was very nearly air tight and the unfortu nate man had turned on the gas full hesd. He was found lying on his bed In his underclothes without a sigo of struggle. Dr Anderson was called and said he had been dead U or S hours. On a stand in his room was found a gold watch and the words written on a strip torn from a newspaper, "a present f'jr t'harl." meaning his brother in Lin coln, Mass. The room was Immediately placed in charge of Lawyer Barber and G A Koyden. Thus passes out a man who has been one of our most interesting local char acters, who in his day kept what was admittedly, as regards its completeress and the quality of its appointments right through, the best livery stable in New England, a keen and efficient bus iness man. fullof enterprise and pluck in his line, knowing his business thorough ly and enjoying its ru h and variety. He wai ai'o a man of a great deal of native ability and originality, with a fund of shrewd and rollicking humor that had a flavor al! Its own and could not fail to attract attention. But unfor tunate in lacking eatly advantages he had had practically to make his own way in the world since he was tj-years-old and beirg so ahsoibed in business. In his later life, he had not provided himself with theresource'. in the love of hooks or art or social ameaities, that make leisure tolerable, and being out of the things that had employed his activities all his days and out of the business contact with other people that had given life its iet, bis days have been wretched and all the worse b-Tause of his active mind. lie sat brooding most of bis time with little recreation except when driving about' with the inevitable result of conjuring uo misfortunes in the future and mis treatment io the pisf, until there was a well developed disease, meloncbalica. and the end was cot at unexpected to those who knew him best. Mr Rsv was born at Ccncord. Mass, Oct 2'.t. lS2n,the son of ll.uum and Mary Lawienca Ray. the oldest of nloe child ren In his infancy his parents moved to Lincoln. He attended Newton Acade my at onetime and came to Brattle toro in the railroad construction days. as a subcontractor for a eection of the Vermont and Massa chusetts ro.t and it was w hile at this work and boardtrg at Isaac Kddy ?, that be met and In 1S51 married bis sister-in- law, Addie V.I'ra f.wbo died hereabout two years ago. After the completion of the road be was associated with Keith White in the management of th Amer ican Uouse, and ever since has been a hslf oner of the property, buying it in company with Mr. Stearns of tbe Tate Goodhue estate, and Stearns beirg suc ceeded by (.J. A. lioydeu, the present owner with Mr. Riy. In tbe early fif ties he became proprietor of the livery stable now owned by Henry R. Brown in what was then the Goodhue building, but for more than a genera tion has been tbe Ray block. It was in tbe height of the water cure busi ness, and be rose to the opportunity of furnishing a livery fit for the most fas tidious patrons. In 1801 be told out to Adam. Bowen & Minor.

VVAITR'W. r-J Miirj Retold of How the Brattleboro Wrecker Operated ror Year, on Nothlng- The Fan. aa Rerlvar Price roans) Tl.ein. (Sunday Republican correspondence.) Another interesting reminiseerse is roused by the claim of Cashier O H L?wie of the wrecked Farmers' Nation al bank of Verger res that the bank is in iltbt instead of bis owmg it. It re- n inc's of the elsim that the lste 8 M W.ite so emphatically made after tho ruin of the first National bank here that swept nearly S-VXl.tXO from tbe people rf this county and vicinity. But there resily was some truth to Waite's claim, as tbe receiver be lieved at tbe time, and the recorda of the bank seemed to indicate. Waite claimed that the lnok's capital was lost io Chicago investments before tbe war, and then figuring S or 10 per cstt dividends that he paid for 20 years rr rcce, he was able to mskoout. a I if.' amount due hinr. It is trie that well toward the $150,000 t at. 1 1 al aas lost by b"d investments marie through) Waite's brother. It was suspected also that he used more of the bank's a oney to pay a defalcitio ' of bis brother's. Tbe national lv kirg net gave him bonds to float the irstitu tion along by f jrnisbing him 270,000 of nationsl back bills to earn with. Quickly after the act was passed be took out a charter ard increased the bank's capital bv l.iu.OOO, making t'e tominal earital riOO.OOO. This gave him $110,000 fresh monsy t op erate with, antl be took $100,000 of it and bought bonds ard act circulatioo to tha atront rf 0.000. Then this tVKi.OOO and flO.OOO added was used to buy anrtber $100,000 rends, and tbe operation repeated, so tuat with only I'JO,000 be got thus f'J70,000, circula tion, and had $30,000 of this it creased capital left. He then went into organ rcanufactore at Chicago, made muiey there rapidly and was io a fair way of hllinK the bole wben tbe Chi cairn tire swept away tbe factory, with irsurance for only a small per cent. It was the factory, wbico was bis last desperate recourse, tt at fce started bia natert suit ag.irst tbe Estey's. Burette tbe ptente-. had) do confidence io it Really ttnre was rot b ing to it, as te verdict of the supreme court finally showed, but be spent big .moults io fighting it. pay ing one cf bis lawyers ot nee time IVi.OtiO. until be and bis bank were absolutely ruined aod forgiries ami over-issues of ttoek, as well as tbe compute puttine of tbe institution, withio a few thousand dollars, Wfre necessary t J carry tbe case aloof. Tre mathematics rf tbe above are a little awry. What Waiie oid by tbe op'fatinn correct I v closer i bet above was to invest f 0,000 io bonds aud get bar $270,000 in c-icrulaitoo.
