The “ Green-Eyed Monstee. ” —On Monday week last a most romantic suicide ■was committed at Glendore Station in Southland, the self-destroyer being a you!ag man named Charles Rhodes. Deceased had been courting the servant-girl at flhe station, and got into a frenzy of jealousy because she was escorted home from a ball by another swain. However, he pretended to make friends again, and, on Monday evening, he went for a walk with her. On their way home he pulled a phial out of his pocket, put some of its contents into a lemonade bottle of water, shook it up, and took a drink of the mixture. He then several times invited his; sweetheart to have a drink, but she declined. Presently he fell down, and was a dead man in a few minutes. The post mortem examination showed that he had died from a dose of strychnine. He had evidently intended that the young woman should perish with him, but she fortunately declined to touch the poison, though at the time she had no notion what it was. Holloway’s Ointment and Pills combine both sanitive and sanative powers in a high degree—by the former term is understood their ability to preserve health, by the latter their capability to restore health. With these remedies at hand no invalid need be at fault to guide himself or herself safely through the many trials to which everyone is subjected during our long and ofttimes inclement winters. Coughs, colds, ulcerated throats, diptheria, whooping cough, can he successfully treated by well rubbing this Ointment upon the chest, and by taking the Pills. During damp foggy weatherasthmatical sufferers will experience the utmost possible relief from the inunction of the ointment on all tenderchested persons will save endless misery by adopting this treatment—[Advt.]
