A Youthful Cigarette Fiend
The 14-year-old son of Trial Justice Hammett, of Blackville, S. C., committed suicide. He was addicted to the cigarette habit and his father, in the effort to break him of it, gave him a sound thrashing. The boy went to school as usual, but got excused by his teacher and bought a rope at a neighbor's store. A few hours later his body was found hanging to a tree in the woods.
