The following account of the suicide of Fred N. Tanner, son of Mr. W. P. Tanner, who for many years an honored citizen of Athens, is taken from a recent number of the Montgomery Advertiser: Mr. Fred Nelson Tanner, of this city shot himself in his room at his father’s residence on Lawrence Street yesterday evening and died an hour afterwards from the wound. The weapon used was a pistol and the ball entered his right temple. Physicians were hastily summoned but on arrival they discovered that the young man was beyond the reach of human skill. General despondency was the cause that led to the deed.
