Suicide of a Mother.
--Mrs. L. A. Wilson
, of Bush Hill, Randolph county, N. C.
, committed suicide on the 11th ult., by cutting her throat with a razor.
It appears that her husband being unwell, and two children lying, one upon its death bed and the other very low, two young ladies of the neighborhood came in to spend the night and to assist in taking care of the sick.
About 4 o'clock in the morning they had all laid down to sleep except Mrs. Wilson
, who remained by the bedside of her sick child.
In about an hour Mr. Wilson
awoke, and, missing his wife, called her several times, and, receiving no answer, became alarmed, and commenced starching for her, and about 6 o'clock found her in an outhouse near his dwelling, weltering in her own blood, with the instrument of death lying by her side.
The parent had a few days before buried a very interesting little boy about two years old, and at the same time she committed the deed another lovely little boy about five years old, was lying at the point of death, and died in a few days after.
