Suicide for Love.

--Mary Smith, of Newburg, Mo., found last week that her lover had ceased to entertain any affection for her, and at a late hour in the night rose from her bed and walked to the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, where she sat down to wait for the Express. On hearing it approach, she drew her night robe around her head and laid down on the track. In a moment her headless corpse rolled down the embankment.
