It is believed that the cause of the death of Willis Hollister, who committed suicide by hanging in his barn at his home in Granville, N.Y., last week, was the loss sustained while playing poker with Rutland sharps a few days prior to his self -destruction, when, it is stated, he lost a large sum of money. He was 69 years of age and a veteran of the Civil war.
