Obituary

Probable Suicide A man about 40 years old, named O. P. Bogue from Pittsford, was found dead this morning in the bay loft of Anthony Laduke's livery barn. When found, he was lying on his side, and a two ounce vial labeled laudanum lay on the hay a little ways from him. The cork was out, and a little of the liquid remained in the vial. One of our druggists recollected having sold him 25 cents worth of laudanum yesterday morning, the man saying that he wished it for sick horses. Bogue was part owner of a fine stallion here at the Fair. He had been drinking hard for a number of days, and it is possible that he swallowed the fatal dose in a moment of delirium or despair. His body was taken south today. He leaves a wife and two children.
