A Failed Suicide
Los Angeles, April 30.— Clark Anderson, a young musician of this city, made a desperate attempt to commit suicide this morning at West Lake park. A constable prevented the act just as the young fellow was putting a razor to his throat. He has been addicted to the cigarette habit, and his inability to quit the habit is his reason for the attempt. Young Anderson lives with his mother on South Spring street He will be tried for insanity.
