Pickard had not been living agreeably with his wife for some time and recently left his home and was boarding with the Klock family. Sunday evening he went to his room after 7 p.m. and shortly after, Mr. Klock heard the report of a revolver and hastening to the room found the unfortunate man lying helpless across a trunk. Mr. Klock inquired as to what the trouble was and Mr. Pickard said he had shot himself.
