Cfinlk Talk,
A chalk talk by V. Mllo I.oudell
was the feature of the mectiiur of
I the Ileud Literary and Delmtinic
Society Wednesday night. He
showed great facility at drawing
charactet istic faces and objects and
scenes, usually giving n humorous
turn to each.
.Mr. i.oiMicii win probably give
an entertainment under tile-auspices
of the debating society or the Deud
Magazine Club within a few weeks.
A committee has been appointed to
arrange the matter. The object
will be to raikc funds for tho rending
roomv which is expected, to be
opeuuil noon. The chalk talk is
entitled "PhaseH of fuccs" and will
consist of the rapid drawing of
caricatures interspersed with hum
orous sketches, musical and other
wise. The specimens of his work
presented Wednesday night won
citthusiatic applaiuc and bespoke a
large patronage for the entertain
George Wis'ner, a Uohpmiau
lslorcr' about 30 years old who had
IrecD employed at the experiment
farm of Hie I). I. & V Co- about
two weeks, committed suicide Tues
day morning by hanging to a juni
per tree at the farm. Justice Law
rence empaneled a jury to inquire
into the cause of den't.h and the jury
brought itt n verdict of suicide and
that the dce'car-cd was probably not
in his right mind at t,he time.
Wisncr came t,o Hend about two
weeks ago with Anton a,
who had known him a few months
at Scio. He obtaiuotl work as a
lolorcr with the D. I. vt P. Co.
He was very quiet and his fellow
workmen never got much acquaint
ed with him. At the inquest An
ton I, iikn testified that he had
often thought Wtstier a Utile queer
and last Sunday observed that his
apparent mental unbalance was
greater than he had lefore noticed.
Wittier talked about something he seen in a lioiieman paper
touching n t licit Irom it certain
ritatc in Hohemia and expressed
fear that, it would cause him trouble
with the Ilohcmiau consul in New
York. IJska then told him he was.
1 he men sleeping 111 the taut
with Wisncr toMified that he acted
quccriy Monday lilght. 11c rose
about 5 o'clock Tuesday morning,
put on his best clothes, including a
jwit of brand new leggings, made
a break from the tent and hurried
to a tree about 40 rods distant.
The indications arc that Wisncr
climbed the true about 1 s feet, put
a uoone of ordinary clothesline
around his neck,' fastened the other
end abotit'thc tree and slid down
until strangulation resulted
One arm was over a limb, which
bore part of the weight of the lnxly.
In the absence of the coroner
County Commiasioucr Sterns tele
phoned to Justice Lawrence of HcuU
precinct to hold the inquest. The
jury summoned was composed of
John Siscmorc, Chaunccy P. JJeck
er, James M. Pattou, Theophile
St Michel, Nicholas P. Welder and
Praucw W. Cojwiaud. They cut
down the body and heard testimony
and reported the verdict of suicide.
Undertaker Meyer gave the corpse
decent burial. The deceased left
a young wife at Scio, but had no
other known relatives in this
