John Zemon, of Chelsea, made an attempt to end his life by taking chloroform and laudanum, recently. He went to his brother Mike's one afternoon, stayed for supper, and was as well and social as usual when he retired for the night. In the morning his brother called him to arise, and receiving no response, went to his room and found him stiff, but he still breathed. Medical help was hastily summoned, and everything possible done for his relief, but there is little hope of his recovery.
