      THE PARIS GREEN ROUTE

      EDWARD A. BELLlNGER, OF VOLNEY TOOK HIS OWN LIFE

      Held an Eighteen Year Old Boy as Witness. Thought First Of Using A Knife, But Was Prevailed Upon Not To. He Then Took Three Teaspoonful Petate(?) Bog(?) Exterminator.

      Coroner Vowinkel was called to Mount Pleasant, seven miles from Fulton, in the town of Votary, on Saturday to investigate the death of Edward A. Bellinger, who committed suicide. The story of Mr. Bellinger's death is peculiar and interesting. It seems that Warren Pratt, eighteen years old, living near Mount Pleasant, left his home on Saturday between one and two o'clock to visit Mr. Bellinger, whose farm was about a mile away.

      Young Pratt found Mr. Bellinger at his home. He was acting in a queer way and said “Look around this room. This is the way I have lived for four years. Now I Intend to die and I want you as a witness." Three knives lay upon a table and Mr. Bellinger picked up one as though to kill himself. Pratt attempted to dissuade the man, and after some talk he said: "Well, if you don't want me to do it with the knife I will do it in an easier way.” With that he reached up on a shelf and took down a cup, from which he ate three teaspoonfuls of a green powder, Paris green.

      Again the lad tried to keep the old man from killing himself, but he was unable to prevent him swallowing the poison. When Pratt saw what had been done he started for Mrs. Bellinger and a son Edward, whom he knew to be at a neighbor's house. He told Mrs. Bellinger of her husband's deed, but she did not believe the story, as her husband had many times before threatened to take his life, and the threat was regarded as an idle one. However, she and her son went home but the poison which Bellinger had taken had not then had any effect.

      Upon examining the powder he had swallowed she found that it was poison, and a messenger was dispatched for Doctor Higbriter at Fulton. He arrived about five o'clock and used antidotes and a stomach pump all to no purpose, for at seven o'clock Bellinger died. Coroner Vowinkel decided an inquest unnecessary.

      Bellinger was sixty-four years old and had lived in Mount Pleasant for twenty-eight years. He is survived by a wife and five children, one son, George E. Bellinger, of this city, being a market man at East Fourth and Bridge street. One daughter, Mrs. James Bowen, formerly Mrs. Carrie Parkhurst, of Druse's Corners, came into prominence in this county about four years ago, when she was arrested on suspicion of poisoning her husband. She was acquitted and still lives at Druse's Corners. Bellinger and his wife had a sharp discussion Saturday morning regarding the running expenses of the farm and he then threatened to commit suicide.
