Attempted Suicide of E.E. Adams.
The attempted suicide of Everett E. Adams Monday afternoon in the home of his daughter, Mrs. William A. Burke, caused some excitement in the community. Mr. Adams has been ill a long time with rheumatism and brights disease and confined to his bed, and was not in his right mind at the time. He managed to get hold of a little knife, such as is worn for a watch charm, with which he made a wound in his throat which bled profusely, but he just missed the jugular vein.
Mrs. Burke discovered him in the attempt and immediately sent for medical aid, which was rendered in time to prevent an immediate fatality, but it is not expected that he can live. Mr. Adams came here from Peru with Mr. and Mrs. Burke about five years ago. He is a Civil war veteran.
