SUICIDE IN COVINGTON. -- A man named James McGary, living on the corner of Scott and Seventh streets, committed suicide in the following manner: He was an employe in the glass establishment of Gray & Hemingray, was a Scotchman, about forty-five years of age, and had a family consisting of a wife and four children. He came home on Monday night rather dispirited, as was observed by his family, and about two o'clock in the morning they were alarmed by an explosion, which proved to be that of a gun. It appears that he had put the muzzle of a shot-gun to his mouth and pulled the trigger, which had the effect to blow the whole top of his head off. Coroner Hughes held an inquest upon the body; the Jury returned a verdict in accordance with the above facts.
