Snappy Gentleman


Jamestown, Jan 15.—There was an attempted suicide at the City Hospital Thursday night, George Masters who has been at the hospital for care since Tuesday night, trying to take his life, by cutting his throat with a safety razor blade, just after a nurse had left his room after administering medicine to the sick man. A deep gash was inflicted upon one side of the throat, and Masters lost considerable blood, but he was found less than fifteen minutes after by the nurse, still conscious. It took four people to control the delirious patient, but he was overcome and the wound dressed. He is now resting and has a good chance for recovery.
