In his Investigation of Ayer's movements
yesterday County Solicitor Clifford learned
that Ayer had visited Chichester, where
he sold his team and purchased the re
volver with which he ended his life. He
made bis appearanoe at the homo of hla
sister, Mrs. Bailey, 'about 3 o'clock In tha
afternoon. An hour later his nelghlmr,
William II. Fowler, arrived and told Ayer
of the burning of his home.
'Without a word In reply Ayer drew the
revolver from his pocket and shot him
self in the head. Ho never regained con
sciousness and died at 9:30 o'clock in the
evening. Further Investigations disclosed
the fact that for three mnnthhs he had
been proodlng over fancied financial wrongs
in connection with the settlement of the
estate of his wife's father, Isaac Lakeman,
who died three years ago. The widow was
named as executrix. No final settlement
of the estate litis been made, however.
In November last Mrs. Lakeman put up
the farm at auction and It was bought by
one of her sons, Fayette Lakeman. He
made an arrangement for Ayer and his
wife to remain on the place, having their
rent free In return for boarding Mrs. Lake
