Troubled With Unfortunate Malady, Alfred Winter of Nampa Takes Strychnine.

    NAMPA - Alfred Winter, son of Conrad Winter, died at the parental home near this city, Sunday, his death being due to self-administration of strychnine, according to the physician's certificate.  The young man, who was 24 years old, had been in poor health for a long time frequently suffering from epilepsy.  It is supposed that brooding over his ailments caused him to take the fatal dose.
    Funeral services will be held from the Catholic church Tuesday morning at 9 o'clock.  Interment will be in the Catholic cemetery, beside the grave of his mother, who passed away about a year ago.  The family has long lived at Nampa, Alfred having been born here.
