of Marietta, makes a desperate attempt
to commit suicide this morning.
           At noon today word was brought to town that Mrs. Abner Richie, living in Marietta, this county, had this morning made a desperate, and, what will in all probability prove a successful attempt to commit suicide with a razor, cutting a frightful gash across her stomach, from which her intestines protruded, and cutting her throat, severing the windpipe completely in two.  Mrs. Richie is between sixty and sixty-five years of age and is the mother of  Hez. Richie, well known in this city and county.  What caused the woman to attempt her life is up to the present writing unknown.  At eleven o'clock this morning she was still alive, though, there was no hopes of her recovery from her fright full injuries.
