Obituary

Roman Keach, aged 68 years, committed suicide yesterday morning in Washington, by deliberately throwing himself off the roof of his house, into the adjoining alley. A few months ago he was dismissed from the position as messenger of the Treasury Department, which place he held for twenty years, and the loss of his job affected his mind.
