Attempt of a General to commit suicide.

Brigadier-General Champion Vaughan, formerly of Kansas, attempted to commit suicide by swallowing poison on Saturday morning in St. Louis, but his life was saved by the prompt administration of an antidote. In the afternoon he again attempted to destroy his life by inhaling chloroform in the Mercantile Library room, but was again saved by medical aid. General Vaughan is a son of John C. Vaughan, and served on the staff of General Curtis and General Blunt during the war. No reason is assigned for his strange conduct.
