Our Percival letter which was received too late for this issue, contains the news of the suicide of H. G. [sic] Caples, a prominent physician of that place, last Saturday. From the particulars given in the letter, it seems that Dr. Caples had been drinking heavily of late, and that while under the influence of liquor, took an overdose of morphine, but whether the drug was taken with suicidal intent is not known. He leaves a wife and 7 children. Funeral was held Monday, conducted by Rev. Simons of Hamburg, after which the remains were shipped to Savannah Mo., his old home for interment.
