A Reward

A Fargo Suicide.

Fargo, Dak., May 23—Early this morning N.E. Kelly died from a fatal dose of morphine, taken with suicidal intent. An inquest returned a verdict of premeditated suicide. He had been in Fargo but two or three weeks, and is said to have wealthy relatives in southern Minnesota. At first he gambled and won some money, but abandoned cards and drank so that he was on the verge of delirium tremens. He was under the care of a physician at the time of his death, and had promised to stop drinking. His remains will probably be sent to his friends.
