Wlien it oaime time to go fcome he announced hiie intentíon of reraaiiuiag in Toledo over Sunday. His movemente after tiiis are uuknown to i aayoaO and notMng more was 'ïeai-d of Mm by Iris young ooilege friends in tltis city, wlio gradually got inore i neasy aibout itim. Sunday amd Mouday G. M. Stepliens, ono of his young friends was in Toledo on a stiU Kunt for Sdbmidt and invoked the a,id &L the pólice of that city to loe&te the misssiug man. The oniy clue ttiat is at all feasible as to tqa wliereabouts is üie following telegram viiich aieared in the Dayton, Ofeiio, ïeuing News of Feb. 18: "at, lAnUis, Feb, 18.- Wm. Smith, aged 24 yeamj, a, law srtident at Anu Aiior, Midi., jumpel iuto the river at the foot of Elmwood st., but was rescued and lockL-d üp. Smith's home 'ia in rJiocki)ort, 111. He would give no explanación of Uis action." Aitiioiiglh. tíhe surname Sroitli ia not spelled S-o-h-m-i-d-t, yet all the other data oort-espond to the missing man. Hi.s christian uame is, ii-e is 24 yoans of age, a la.w sludeut, and hia borne is in Liockport, IU. WJien taken in charge at St Louis ttie mi; wJio attempled to drown liimself would give no reasons for his action. Salunidt's friends liere iau g.ive no reaíiou why lie nhould have done suci ai thlng, but ,iit waai probably the reault of a. fit of despondêney. When be loft Jiere Feb. 1. Sehmidt was grea,tly beh,ind with his studies, altliougih naturally a young man of very briht parte. It is öütmlsed taat with the lost time and a chance of being pluöked in Ws examinaitiioas staring üiin in tlie face, out of nioney and with no friends to oheer him up he determined to rdd hiinself of the cares of tiUs life.
