In a fight of despondency, Dr. T. J. Englerth, who resides in the property formerly occupied by W.T. Baker and family, on Lincoln avenue, attempted suicide shortly before midnight last night by shooting himself in the top of the head. The bullet penetrated the outer layer of the skull and has apparently lodged between the inner and outer layers, where it will be allowed to remain, unless it should give him much trouble as to necessitate its removal. Today he is resting very well, with indications pointing to his early recovery.
Dr. Englerth, who is about 50 years of age, has not practiced his profession to any considerable extent since coming to Alexandria. His wife has been visiting relatives in Honeycreek, and he was alone last night. It is reported that he made an attempt to kill himself by swallowing five grains of morphine a few days ago while in a fit of despondency, and last night's attempt followed another of these attacks.
He had gone to bed when he made the attempt on his life, and the revolver, which was of .32 calibur, he had wrapped in a wet towel to prevent setting fire to the bedding. The first wide of its mark and was found in his pillow. The second, however, went home, although it does not appear to have touched the brain. The shock. The shock rendered him unconscious, but after a time he revived. Then he went to his telephone and summoned Dr. Schurtz, who, with Dr. Gibson, went to the Englerth home. The injured man related to them the particulars of his attempt at self-destruction, and appeared to regret what he had done. His would were dresses and Mrs. Englerth summoned home.
