in trapping hawKs recently. For
some time past these yicious birds

ing fifty two inches from tip to tip,
which waa an unusually large bird
of this specie. But it wa3 afterward
discovered that hawks were not the
only things eating her chickens,
whereupon she sat another trap and
caught a mink that had killed and
partially devoured eight chicks.

to be the Cause-Left So Messas.
The cicy was shocked this morn
ing when it was learned that Mr. W
N Prather the well known baker
and confectioner had sucided at his
home on North Tryon street. The
first intimation of the sad affair oc
curred at Mr. Prather3 hoLae when
his irervanh was sent to his room to
arouse him. This occurred at 8:30
thb morning. After waiting fcr
him for half an hour to. appear,
Prof (Jrantz who has rooms at his
residence, ascended i he stairs leadino;
to the room Mr. Pnthcr occupied to
ascertain why h;-: did not come down
He tried the door and found it locked
and at this failure his suspicions'1
were aroused. door leading to
his from the room of his wife was
also tried and nm found locked.
Prof. Orautz then placed a chair at
Mr- Pothers door acd !oked
through the tianaom and tha si.d
Mr. Prather had hanged himself.
Shortly after this a News reporter
was informed of the fact and he wenfc
to the homo at once. He w;-?s ad

Mr. Crantz naj in a kneeling peti

hemp twine such as U commonly
used in commercial packing t.-ao
securely festered around the b-.d
post and in the same manner around
the suicides neck. He was perfectly
rigid ben discovered and the phys
sicians who were called to invcelN
2:ate, say that bo had been doal fo -12
hours at least. Dr. Gee. Gnham
who woa the first physician at the
scene ?as cen by the News and he
stated that Mr. Prather died by hi3
own hands ard had been dead for 111
hours. He said Mr. Prather cjrae
home last night about 7 o'clock and
almost immediately uont fo hi. -3 room.
He did not remove hi3 clothes and
left a candle Durniugand in this pale
and flickering light his life went out
long before the taper expired, HiL
neck was not broken but the end
came by strat gulation. Dr. Graham
thinks that the suicide waa under the
influence of some strong opiate when
the deed of self d fraction was com
mitted. Dr. II M Wilder, the
county physician wa3 summoned and
he made a like statement. Why Mr.
Prather ended hi3 life h due f r. m
the fact that five years ago he had a
severe case of the grip and since then
his mind ha: been unbalanced and

These coupled with a business that
has been decreasing, caused vAJi r-?
