Otto Granzer, of Los Angeles, aged about 80 years, swallowed poison and Jumped into the ocean. Granzer had a wooden leg. Charles Hess secured a hold on this with a boat hook, but the man died within two minutes after he was hoisted to the pier. "The reason that so many persons have taken their lives or sought death by suicide from this pier is purely psychological," said Dr. Ralph L. Taylor, health offlcer. in comment ing on the third suicide from the Campbell pier in sixty days. "Per sons contemplating suicide hear or read of others seeking oblivion from this pier. They follow in the foot steDs of the foolish ones gone be fore. They come to Long Beach and cast themselves into the sea from the same part of the pier, as near as they are able to determine." - Granzer's wooden leg would have saved him if he had not taken fatal dose of some sort of tincture which ended his life, in the opinion of Dr. Taylor. He found that the man had swallowed little water. He will sign a certificate of voluntary poisoning. Charles Hess, an employee of wave motor company on the pier. rushed to the spot where Granzer had Jumped into the ocean after drinking the contents of a vial. The wooden leg first appeared above the surface of the ocean, and Hess, with a boat hook, secured a firm hold while others brought ropes and looped them about Granzer's body, The pulmotor and other first aids were used to no effect. A bank book, showing a comfort able balance, and that he had drawn 1109 on Monday, was found wrapped in a newspaper. On the last leaf of the bank book were the words: "Notify my daughter, Mrs. H. Kelly, No. 1732 Washington avenue, New Orleans, La." This last request of Granzer was complied with by the police, and the undertaker. SUBTERRANEAN STREAM.
