Frank O. Coombs, one of the best known engravers in the Attleboros, suffered a serious and painful injury recently while descending a flight of stairs at his home on Park St. In some manner, he lost his balance and fell headlong the entire distance to the floor below, fracturing his left arm and dislocating his shoulder. He will be laid up for a good many weeks, and his detention from business will be keenly regretted by those who depend upon his exceptional skill. His work on souvenir spoons is known throughout the country.

The Mauser Mfg. Co. are making a handsome special loving cup, which will be presented to E. Fales Coward, late dramatic editor of the New York World, by his former associates on that paper.

DEATH PUZZLES CORONER

Newark Silversmith Left Note Saying He Feared Insanity


Under peculiar circumstances, Frank Mauser, sixty-three years old, formerly head of the Mauser Silverware Company, of Newark, died suddenly last night in the Frank E. Campbell undertaking establishment, at No. 241 West 23d Street. As he fell unconscious to the floor, a note dropped from his hand, in which the man said he was afraid he was going crazy and asked that several matters be attended to when he died.

Coroner Shrady was unable to state whether or not the man had committed suicide. An autopsy will be performed today.

The superintendent of the establishment saw the man walking up and down in front of the place. Finally, the man started through the door, and then went out again to the sidewalk. The superintendent asked him what he wanted and followed him into the office. The Superintendent took off his coat and the man did the same. A moment later he fell forward unconscious. The superintendent lifted him to a table, and then hurriedly summoned Dr. J. H. Patrick, of No 33 west 23d street, and Dr. W. J. Nardy of No. 227 West 23d street. They worked over the man for more than an hour, but were unable to revive him.

The note which dropped from his hand read: "My nerves are in a terrible condition. I am afraid I'll get crazy."
