Ashland Doctor Kills Himself.
Ashland, Wis., June 5.—Dr. J. W. Straw was found dead in the bath room of his residence with his throat cut, having taken his own life. He had been ailing for some time, and was despondent at times, and it is thought that he was more or less deranged. His mother is critically ill at the residence, and all knowledge of her son's death is scrupulously kept from her, as there is little doubt that the shock would kill her. Dr. Straw was one of the best known ear, eye and nose experts in the west. For several years he had an office in the Masonic temple, and has had a large practice as a specialist. He was a Virginian by birth, and spent most of his life in that state.
