it not been for the timely assistance

but missed hi range of the dock-edge

ACT OF AN IHSANE
MAN BECOMES DEMENTED
AND ASSAULTS RELATIVE
THEN ATTEMPTS SUICIDE
BOTH DOING WELL AT THE
A sad case of attempted homicide
and suicide occurred in Uniontown
on Sunday afternoon which resulted
in serious wounds being inflicted on
the victim, and on the assailant who,
at last accounts, was in a precarious
From the best accounts obtainable
Vaino Riippa was visiting his cousin.
Konrad Koskcla, and both were dis
cussing old school days, and their
boyish experiences, when suddenly
Koskcla, who had a knife in his
hands, attacked Mr. Riippa with
the weapon and attempted to cut hi
throat, succeeding in inflicting a
severe gash in same. Seeing the re
sults of his attack, in an insane
frenzy, the assailant then attempted
to commit suicide. Using the same
weapon he slashed his own throat,
and then struck himself in the abdo
men, in an attempt to disembowel
himself which he practically succeed
cd in doing.
Koskela's brother hearing the com
motion entered the room and grasping
the situation, secured a broom and
knocking the weapon from his broth
er's hand overpowered the weakened
man. The ambulance was immediate
ly secured and both men were taken
to the hospital where immediate at
tention was given them. Prompt at
tention and good care has evidently
saved the lives of both, as, at a late
hour last night, both were doing well
and on the road to recovery. The
operations necessary were successful,
and they passed a restful night on
Koskella, who is an industrious,
steady man, and who has been em
ployed in Wilson's boat yards, has
shown a morbid disposition for the
past week, and it is more than likely
that at the crucial moment, during the
visit of his cousing his mind gave
way and the attempted murder and
suicide was the result. The unfor
tunate circumstance is regretted by
all who know both parties and, the
hopes given out that both will recover
are gratefully received by the friends
