V-K The Meaning 1 of a MesaaV' that Went Over the Wire One frig.-ht. From the New York Sun. Cheyenne, Wt., April 17.—“Did'you ever hear of anybody committing suicide by wire Tasked a telegraph operator here last night of a party of men, young and old, who hail experience at the keys. One inan knew of a follow who hanged himself with a clothes-line wire, and several others had hoard of canes where men had strangled themselves on telegraph poles and cross trees, but these wore not what the first speaker meant. “You don’t catch the ixilnt,” he con tinued. “When the overland wire was newer than it is now, a go<l many funny things used to happen, and some of them were not so funny either. The country was full of romances and tradgios and we used to have them all to ourselves. One night in the winter of l.'SiU-TO I was on duty here alone. It was a howling night, intensely dark and stormy. Not much was going on, and as I had been reading a hair lifting story, and was a little nervous anyway ou account of the numer ous crimes that had beer, committed in tho neighbor hood, I liegaii’Ho fidget. The sounder was still, and so, just to make a little noise, I went out and poked up the tire. Pretty soon a press dispatch started, and w hile that, was going through I felt more at ease. The rattle of the instrument, and the oeeasonal conversation between the two men who were sending and receiving mode some company tor me. When this stopped, the howling of the wind seemed louder than ever. I lighted mv pine and tiegan to walk arouud. Then I picked up my book and tried to read, but a little later I resumed my walk. Finally, at alout 2 o’clock iu the morning, 1 settled back in my chaiifl with a feeling of droVrefness, and hail lostrtyrelf for a minute or two, perhaps, wbMi tIW sounder clicked off, sharp and ‘MriCHxl-by. boys! Good-bye!’ “I Will'd forward, and as I did so some- the line broke in with a ribald remark. Thou others took it up, and pretty soon tinere was a general questioning and erotw-questioning going on for the purpose of, |tlnamg out who had sent the message. I telegraphed to ten or twelve of tho boys that I had not done so, and others had made their denials, so that after a little things be came quiet again. 1 sat thinking for a few minutes and was loading my tnpe for an other smoke, feeling somewhat lietter than I had done nt first, when there came uot quite as rapidly as before, but still with perfect distinctness, the words: “ ‘Good-by, laiys, J. -oy.’ “Laramie broke in with: “ 'Well, good-by. What’s the matter with you f and several others whom I couldn’t locate got on the wires with, ‘ground that wire,’ ‘cheese it,’ ‘let me sleep, ’‘who’s calling T ‘wliat do you say'f ‘let up, will you T and other remarks. One or two of the boys tried to locate tlie opera tor by calling up the stations along tlie road, but the storm was having its effect on the wires, and as some ot the offices were closed nt night there wore a good many that could not be raised. Al ter that I heard nothing more, and I made up my mind that some smart Aleck was having a little fun with us. “In the morning the man who -was to re lieve me was a little late, and while I was waiting for him to coine in I heard the fol lowing press message going through ; “ ’Felton’s Siding, Wyo., 5. When the day this station came on duty this morning he found Nicholas Barron, the night operator, dead at his in strument, with a revolver at his side. He ha<l com mi tod suicide some time during the night. He is thought to have had relatives in the East.’ “ ‘That was the duck who was telegraph ing last night,’ somebody said over the wires as soon as the disimtch went through, ar.d so he was. He hnu shot himself twice, and it is evident that he telegraphed his farewells before each shot, closing his kej 1 at once and making no resjionse to the clatter widen his mysterious manages created. He was a pretty good fellow, but 1 heard that; he got lonesome out there. It’s a jiooc wuy to commit suicide, though.” WATCHES AMD JEWELRY.
