|LOCAL AND PERSONAL.|
Annie S. Mangus, daughter of a boarding house keeper at South Fork, committed suicide Saturday night by drinking some port wine in which she had dissolved twenty grains of strychnine. The girl’s lover, a miner named Leander Reynolds, was given some of the same stuff by his sweetheart, but he managed to save his life by a hurried trip to the office of Dr. J.C. Glass, who administered an antidote. The remains of Miss Mangus were buried at Lovett on Monday.
