A Woman Kills Herself

Mrs. Uriah White Cuts the Arteries in Her Wrist

Mrs. Uriah White of Asbury Park committed suicide by cutting the arteries in her wrist last Friday morning. She had taken her husbandís razor and had gone to the bathroom. She had leaned over the bath tub and slashed her wrist. When she became weak from loss of blood she fell, and the noise of her fall awakened her daughter, who went to the bathroom and found her mother dying. A doctor was called but Mrs. White died shortly after he arrived. Mrs. White had been in poor health for some time, and she was rendered melancholy by the recent death of her father, Hugh Hurley. This is supposed to be the reason for her act. Mrs. White was sixty years old.
