RICH HANKER IS A SUICIDE.
JohuW. Castle, Head of I'nlon Trust
in Jiew York, Slushes Thorat.
New York, Sept. 13.—John W. Cas-
tles, president of the Union Trust com-
pany of this city, capitalized at $1,-
000,000, a director in other well known
corporations and prominent in club
and social life in this city and the
south, cut his throat from ear to ear in
the Grand Union hotel this afternoon
and was found dead stretched across a
bed tonight. He had been in ill health
for some time and his suicide is as-
cribed solely to a nervous breakdown
and not to financial troubles.
His body was discovered about 9
o'clock tonight by his brother, Burton
S. Castles who, having become alarmed
at Mr. Castles' failure to return home
from the bank, began a search through
the hotels of the city. Arriving at the
Grand Union he found that Mr. Castles
lad registered there under his own
name at 4:20 o'clock this afternoon
and had gone immediately to the room
assigned to him on the second floor.
As his body was cold when found to-
night it is believed he took his life as
soon as he closed the door behind him.
He was clothed only in his under-
garments, lying across the bed, while
on a table nearby was a bloody razor
■with which he had ended his life. He
had made his way to the bed before he
expired. The position of the razor
leads to the belief that he stood before
th* mirror while slashing his throat.

The cattle supply at 75,000 head last

by a scarcity of good to choice fed

for them, top grades of grass cattle
also stronger, medium to low grades

week, stackers and feeders 10 to 25
cents higher, calves off 25 to 50 cents

SCIKX K DEFEATS TYPHOID
Army Officers Assert that the \ew
Vaccine in Successful.
Washington. Sep. 12.—Medical * of-
ficers of the United States army be-
lieve that the new anti-typhoid vaccine
now being tested at the various army
posts will prove to be successful.
Mora than a thousand men, both of-
ficers and privates, many of them in
close contact with typhoid patients
have been vaccinated, and not one of
these has contracted the -Jisease. Of
those vaccinated only 8 percent were
incopacitated for duty, and none was
excused for longer than forty-eight
The reports so far received are pre-
liminary in character, but they have
created an impression favorable to the
method among army medical men.
The vaccine is an invention of the
British army, where it has been used
with success. Its use in the army here
is the result of a recommendation by
a distinguished group of medical
scientists brought together in 1908 as
an arniv board.
