Comment

A man named Archie McNiel a fencer working for Mr. Harold Seattle at North Crusoe, cut his throat on Monday morning. He had been about eight weeks in town having a spree but seemed all right when he went back to work again two days ago. However, he was evidently suffering from delirium tremens when he committed the rash act. Constable Crane went out to Investigate and performed the last solemn rites.
