dently placed the gnu in position , and

I'm ' . , wfo , ' who wollt m B0aroh l ° r " > ' .
\MuIo the evidence
at tha inquest wus
not of a character to justify verdict of
suicide , as there eoomud in bo no motive ,
there is little if doubt
any but that it was
n case of eelf-destruction. Mr. Cook
was but 22 years old and had been mar
ricd throe months on the day of hii
doath. Ho was of
n man quiet , exemplary
emplary habits , a hard workur and an
honest , conscientious fellow , above the
average , in talent and popular with his
friends. It is ullugod that ho had on.
gaged in noino stock trades that worried
him and preyed upon his mind.
