    Jeweler Charles C. Reed Takes His Own Life
    Boston, Mass., Feb. 8. -- Charles C. Reed, of Hyde Park, Mass., left his store last Monday, saying to a friend that he intended going on a business trip to Providence. He did not return, and his disappearance led to numerous inquiries from customers and friends. Saturday noon his lifeless body was found in a room that he had taken the previous day at the Quincy House, in this city. On the table was a half emptied bottle of morphine pills, with a note in which the suicide expressed sorrow for his act and for the shock it might cause his relatives. He also warned young men to shun temptation and added that the way of transgression is hard.
