A Suicide at Farmingdale.
Frederick Conley of Freehold, aged about 33 years, committed suicide by shooting himself in the head with a revolver at Farmingdale. Conley and his wife had been separated for about six months on account of his intemperate habits, it is alleged, and she has been living with her father, William J. Cottrell, at Farmingdale. Conley went there to see her and Cottrell would not allow him to do so. Conley went up the road about fifty yards, and, after passing Joseph Tilton, to whom he spoke pleasantly, shot himself in the right temple and death was instantaneous. He leaves a widow and two small children.
