Ed. Lyons, a farmer living near town, suicided last Saturday evening, by taking laudanum. He was addicted to the use of liquor, and its use so exhausted his funds that it left him in close circumstances. The growth of the drinking and financial difficulties so discouraged him that he put an end to all by ending his life.—Morris Tribune.
