Mrs. George Shepherd, of
Second Street, Tried to
Take Carbolic Acid.
By Her Husband, Who Came Into
Room as She Raised Bottle to
Her Lips -- Horribly Burned
by Liquid -- Will Recover.
          Driven to desperation thru lack of prper food and lack of proper facilities for keeping house,  Mrs. George Shepherd,  aged 35, living at 727 Second street, attempted suicide by drinking carbolic acid about five o'clock yesterday evening.  The attempt was frustrated by her husband who stepped into the room just in time to strike the bottle from her hands before she had had time to swallow any of the liquid.  Neighbors called  Dr. F. E. Bass,  who after examination determined that none of the liquid had been swallowed and that she would recover.  Her lips, tongue, mouth and left side of her face and neck were horribly burned by the acid.
          The acid was obtained from one of the drug stores in this city more than a week ago, according to statements made to a representative of the Democrat today, by the youngest daughter of the family,  Nellie Shepherd,  who is employed at the Kennedy Car Liner and Bag factory.  The acid was contained in a vial about three inches long and as large as the middle finger of a mature hand, in quantity about three ounces.
          Domestic infelicity is at the bottom of the trouble according to statements made today by relatives and members of the family.  It is said that yesterday evening just before attempting to swallow the acid, Mrs. Shepherd stated that she was ready to die and did not care to live any longer under conditions existing as they were.  When neighbors were asked to call a physician, she implored them not to do so, but to let her suffer and die if possible.
          The family have lived in this city for only about three months moving here from Morgantown.  Mr. Shepherd is a teamster and is at present employed with his son-in-law in hauling gravel for one of the roads under construction in this county. He is the father of four children.
