Word reached town a few days ago of the suicide of Martin Ray who resided on East Croton.
Mr. Ray met his fate via the laudanum route.
He had been taking a little laudanum to ease an attack of rheumatism but at the time of his death he had taken an overdose of the drugs with suicidal intentions and had told his family of his intentions.
Medical aid was summoned but arrived too late to save the man's life.
A wife and five children survive Mr. Ray.

Was It Suicide?
Martin Ray died at his home on Croton creek west of Cheyenne, on Friday of last week.
It is not positively known whether it was suicide or due to an accident.
He has been sick all winter with quick consumption, accompanied by rheumatism, and has been using laudanum in small doses as a relief from pain.
For three or four days he has been very weak, and it is not certain that the drug was taken with suicidal intent.
He leaves a wife and four children, living on a farm, and in rather poor circumstances.
