Cut His Throat on Sunday

Sunday afternoon Julius Johnson cut his throat at the home of his nephew at Pulcifer.  The facts as we have been told, is that after dinner he took his razor and went out to the outhouse and cut his throat so that he bled to death.  It was thought that he had gone into his bedroom to take a nap, and it was not known that he had committed the horrible deed until discovered by a young lady.  The deceased was about 75 years of age.
