C09I1II1TTED SriClDE. A €«ntervllle Yonnfr Man Hannr» Him« self. Word has been received in this city city that a young man named Marcus Eyth, son of the landlord of the hotel of Centerville, had committed suicide on Sunday morning. The story as told by a gentleman in this city who is conversant with the facta, is as foliow's: Young Eyth has been keeping company with a young lady named Watson for some time, and his parents have objected strenuously to his going to see her. On Saturday, after visiting Butler with a friend, Dal Kiester, he went to see Miss AVatson and remained there until 4 o’­ clock Sunday morning. As he was leaving. the young lady asked him when she would see him again, and he replied “Tomorrow, but you will be surprised when you see me.” Nothing w’as seen of him until Sunday morning, when the young man's father w’ent to the hay - mow to throw down some hay, when to his horror he saw Marcus hanging from a rafter, dead. It is thought his parents’ objections to his attentions to Miss Watson caused the rash act. Young Eyth was about 23 years of age and bore a splendid reputation for sobriety and industry.
