Suicide at the Jail
Davis came last Saturday evening to the home of his father-in-law, Edward Nichols, High Street. Sunday morning, in sudden frenzy, he seized a hammer and dealt three blows at William Foss, of Lynn, Mass.. Mrs. Nichols’ brother-in-law, who was lying upon a lounge. Fortunately a chair before the lounge broke the force of the blows and Mr. Foss was not badly injured.
