Prominent Physician Suicides.
Northwood, Aug 4 —Dr. D. S. More committed suicide in his office by shooting himself through the head with a revolver. He lived only eight minutes after committing the deed. He left a long letter on his desk addressed to his wife, who is an invalid. Incessant care and watching over his sick wife are supposed to have produced despondency and temporary insanity.

An Accident not a Suicide.
The Northwood Index, reviewing the case carefully, gives cogent reasons for believing that the reported suicide of Dr. More in Northwood on the 2d inst. was the result of an accident, and not premeditated as first given out. The argument made by the Index is a strong one.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows there is a Dr. Dillain D. More buried in Sunset Rest Cemetery in Northwood who was born in 1850 and died Aug. 2, 1900. The middle initial varies from the above.
