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.

A 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 i Q0 b; iZ a sufferer of dyspepsia. These coupled with a business that has been decreasing, caused vAJi r-? until the end .
