Waynesboro Expositor has the following: On Thursday last Mr.
Hezekiah Davis, who lives near the Jefferson line,
committed suicide by shooting himself, and then drinking a bottle of
laudanum. Mr. D. was out working on his farm as usual, and gave no
evidence of any unusual excitement or agitation. Leaving the field
he proceeded to his house, and entering a room immediately shot him
self with a pistol, which not killing him instantly, he drank the
laudanum, and died in a few minutes. No cause is assigned for the
rash act, and the only answer he gave his wife in response to an
inquiry was, "It was not from any cause given by you."
