Andrew M. Robb , aged sixty years ,
committed suicide at an early hour this
morning at his home , 2764 Lake street ,
by shooting himself in the head with a
revolver. Death was instantaneous. He
had complained to his wife last evening
that he was feeling unwell , and said that
he was suffering from pains in the head.
At 5 o'clock this morning he awoke and
told his wife that he was hungry. She
went into the pantry to get something
to appease his hunger , and when she re
turned she found him dead on his cot.
She did not hear the shot , although it
was from a thirty-eight calibre revolver.
Neighbors were aroused at once and a
physician summoned , but to no purpose.
Robb has been soliciting for an insur
ance company , but has not been success
ful of late , and is believed to have shot
himself in a fit of despondency.
