ick county hospital late Friday *
ight from the effects of a selfaministered
dose of poison. This
as his second attempt within 1
iree weeks to take his own life.
Poor health and worry over
nancial difficulties were offered
s possible explanations for his
ash act. At the time of his
eath his baby was dangerously
11 in a Wilmington hospital.
On Tuesday afternoon Mr.
5right attended the Coastal Fair j
n Wilmington, but members of
he party with him say that he

lome, Mr. Johnson found the:
loors locked. Looking through a |
vindow of the house he saw the j
:eacher sitting on the edge of j
lis baby's bed. Nearby was a j
Bible which he apparently had i
leen reading.
When entrance had been made
nto the house, Mr. Bright ack"

3runswick county hospital at
Southport where everything posiible
was done to counteract the J
;ffects of the dose. He remained |
;onscious during the greater part
)f the time until his death.
His father arrived in Southport 1
i few hours before Mr. Bright j
iied. The body was prepared fori
lurial by the M. A. Northrop |
Jndertaking establishment and
vas shipped to his home in
Sylacauga, Ala.
The deceased was a graduate
)f Auburn University and was a j
food teacher. In addition to his j
rnrents he is survived by his wife
ind one child.
Following the death of Mr.

Local Man Hears
From Peruvians
W. B. Keziah Received Postal
Card Last Week From
Commander Thornberry
Of The Peruvian Ship
Loretta, Which Visited
The presence here of the two
Peruvian gunboats, the Amazonas
and the Loretta, for 10 days
during the summer of 1934 created
considerable local and statewide
interest. Last week W. B.
Keziah received a post card from
Commander William D. Thornberry
of the Loretta announcing
the safe arrival of the ship and
crew in her home port.
The card had been mailed In
Peru on October 18, 1934, more
than one year before it reached
its destination. Other communications
from the boats had been
received from time to time as
they touched at points on their
southward journey to Peru.
During their stay in the Southport
harbor the two visiting
boats were jokingly dubbed the
Peruvian Navy and the officers
and crews in charge proved" to be
very interesting visitors.
