How He Did It.—A Horrible Scene in
His Own Home.-.-One Terrible
Slash of a Razor.
A Half Hour Before He Cul His Throat.
Prevented by His Farm Hand.
After much searching, the Wave
has secured the particulars surround-
ing the suicide of William Pollock,
six miles west of Lahoma, at 5 p. m.,
Wednesday, last.
Mr. Pollock had been in bad health
for a year past and his family doctor
informed him not long ago that he
was afflicted with Bright's disease of
the kidneys and could not be cured.
This made him very despondent at
times. A few days before he took his
own life he informed his hired man
that he believed that he was losing
his mind and requested the man to
watch him and see that he could not
injure his family.
Wednesday afternoon the hired man
caught Mr. Pollock in the act of
'.u.'owing a rope over a girder in the
barn, he watched him unseen. Pol-
lock slowly and carefully made a
noose, then fastened the rope to the
girder and was in the act of placing
a box by the side of the dangling
rope, for the purpose of jumping from
it to his death, when the man came
in on him which postponed the hang-
ing. He shamed his employer for at-
tempting such a thing, but Pollock
did not say anything back. The hired
man did not tell Mrs. Pollock of the
attempt at suicide in the barn; he
thought it was best not to trouble her
with it as he intended watching Mr.
Pollock closely.
A half hour after the attempt to
end his life in the barn he went into
the house and informed his wife that
he didn't feel well and layed down on
the flour in the middle of the sitting
room resting his head on his left arm.
In order not to disturb hlni Mrs. Pol-
other part of the house. In a very
few minutes a gurgling sound was
heard and Mrs. Pi llock hurried into
the sitting room and fround her hus-
band wallowing in a pool of his own
blood surrounding his head. His head
was almost cut from the body, clear
back to the bone that connects the
head with the body. His right arm
was extended out at full length and in
the hollow of his hand laid an open
razor, making the evidence of suicide
complete. No one suspected that he
had a razor about him. The grief of
Mrs. Pollock almost threw her into
hysterics and the horrible sight was
enough to unbalance her mind.
The body of Mr. Pollock was not
disturbed. The hired man hurried to
Lahoma and notified the Coroner of
the county by phone. An inquest
was held and a verdict rendered to
the effect that William Pollock had
died from his own hand.
Mr. Pollock was an industrious,
hard working farmer of excellent
habits, never was known to take a
drink of intoxicants and was very
popular among his neighbors. He pur-
chased the farm he lived on last
spring and moved his family from
Wherry, Rice county, Kansas. He
left a wife and three young children.
He was thirty-seven years of age.I
The body was embalmed, prepared
for burial and shipped back to his old
home in Kansas for burial, by V. E.
Kervin, of the Enid Furniture Co.
The sorrowing widow and children
followedthe remains to their last
resting place.
The system is, from natural
causes, debilitated or run-down
both in the spring and full. The
seasons' changes are always a tax
on the human organism. The
blood becomes impure in the
spring, and vitality lugs in the fall.
A little care, a little assistance,
aud nature will do the rest, as it is
always trying to maintain health.
Frequently the weakest organ will
show the most disorder, and this
often leads to wrong treatment.
For the debilitated conditions
of spring or fall, or any other
time, for that matter, the right
thing to do is to build up the
whole system. It is not your stom-
ach, or liver, or nerves alone that
cause the trouble; you are weak-
ened all over and must hove re-
newed strength aud vitality. These

Democatic--"Fusion County Platform.
The following resolutions were
adopted by the convention:
"We, the Democrats and Populists
in the convention assembled, declare
ourselves to be the followers of that
great Commoner, William Jennings
Bryan; of Thomas Jefferson, the
author of the Declaration of Indepen-
dence; and of that protector of the
rightsof the people, Andrew Jackson.
At this time we turn the eyes of
the people to the shameful and cor-
rupt failure of the republican politi-
cians, in possession of all branches of
the government, to enact fair legisla-
tion for the people of Cuba; to grant
liberty to the Philipines, and to
grant them our bill of rights.
Nor in matters affecting America
alone, have they had sufficient pat-
riotism to protect the liberty our
fathers gave us from the menacing
greed of trusts and monopolies, but
in all their legislation and principles
of special privileges has marked its
way and left the trail of the trade
We, therefore, denounce the rep-
ublican politicians for their treachery
to their promises; for their failure to
enact the promised statehood bill
and in its stead passing through the
lower house a statehood bill for
Oklahoma and then leaving this sus-
pended in midair to be used for the
purpose of political co-ercion, and
also for their failure to enact legisla-
tion to curb the greed of the trusts
or to put in force the laws already on
the statute books.
We hail the principles of the Kan-
sas City and Enid platforms for a de-
liverance from the grasp of these
abuses, and we approve and stand up-
on each plank of the national and
territorial platforms, and pledge our
hearty support to the nominee of the
Enid convention, Hon. Wm. M. Cross,
and appreciating the honor conferred
j upon Garfield county in the selection
! of Hon. Wm. M. Anderson as chair-
man of the territorial committee,
hereby pledge to the territorial or-
ganization our hearty co-operatiop
and support under their leadership,
j We congratulate the county upon
the honest and economical adminis-
tration given us by the present coun-
j ty commissioners.
| We heartily approve of thtir wis-
dom in building permanent steel
bridges and that the same policy may
be continued in the proper spirit; we
urge the necessity of electing demo-
cratic and populistic successors.
We recognise the fact that in the
Democratic Rally.
Cyclone Davis, the invincible and
forceable Texas orator, will address
the people of Enid and Garfield coun-
ty, Saturday, Nov. 1. Horace Hagan,
of Guthrie, will also deliver a strong
democratic talk. Mr. Davis has no
superior as an orator in the south-
west. Let everybody turn out. dlw
The greatest opportunity yet offer-
ed to capitalists, investors and home-
seekers is a grand distribution of lots

nation, in the territory and in the
; county, the democratic1 principles of
equal rights to all and special privi-
leges to none, are the oniy safe
guides to successful government and
the only safe preservers of the rights
of the people. We, therefore, see it
as a necessity that all offices be filled
by democrats and populists, that
these principles may be put in force.
Wee ondemn the action of the late
republican board of election commis-
sioners in so making the ballots and
devices that hundreds of citizens of
-Garfield county were disfranchised.
We also condemn the republican
! board of election canvassers in re-
pudiating a free ballot and a fair
count. By the conspiracy of these
two, candidates honestly elected were
'■ counted out of office.
i We favor the repealof the measure
known as the county High School
Law as being one tending to foment
: trouble and dissensions, and as being
i vicious and uncertain in its nature
for the reason that no limit is placed
upon the amount of taxation possible
to levy under its terms.
That we are in favor of the public
ownership of all public utilities and
favor the initiative and the referen-
Relying upon the justice of these
principles we recommend them to
the voters of Garfield county."
