TERRIBLE DEATU OF A FATH
ER AND SON.
A Chicago correspondent of the Hart
ford Courant furnishes the following:
"Chicago has recently witnessed a
double suicide of a character jwrticularly
painiii and Miocking. Its details have
beeu excluded froi our local papers, but
1 see no reason why us moral should be
lost abroad. Dr. wr.s one of the
most conspicnou, wealthy, ami trusted
physicians in Chicago. He was an Al
derman also, and a member of the Board
of Education a man of much power and
considerable culture, but, like some other
doctors, he had fallen a victim to the
cup. His practice did not perceptibly di
miuieli on that account, for there is a pre
valent superstition that great success in
medicine is ii. compatible with temperate
principles and habits. The doctor's fath
er was a man of similar lemjicrarafnt,
and a "free liver" also. He, t -o, was a
citizen (t prominence, aud bad held sev
