Edward C. Rupard Makes an Unsuc-
cessful Suicide Attempt.

Edward C. Rupard, a stock broker living at 2315 Lexington avenue, after dining last evening with his wife and a guest, stepped into an adjoining room and shot out a fourth of his teeth with a revolver. The bullet entered his mouth and came out in front of his right ear.

Rupard did not explain his attempt at suicide. his wife, after taking the pistol from him, telephoned for Dr. Albert M. Wilson. The latter gave emergency treatment and sent Rupard to St. Joseph's hospital. He will recover.
