Zevia Catarect of North Duxbury Uses Paris Green for the Purpose
Zevia Caterect, who resides in the locality known as Scrabble Hill, North Duxbury, died last evening as the result of a liberal dose of paris green taken Monday morning with suicidal intent.
It appears that while Mrs. Catarect was at her daughter's home last Monday morning Mr. Catarect took the poison. When she returned he told her what he had taken, but she did not seem to place much confidence in his statement and it was not until yesterday, when the man showed signs of a critical illness , that a doctor was called.
When Dr. G. S. Bidwell reached the house the deadly poison had done its work. All that medical skill could do had no effect and he died last evening at 11 o'clock.
No reason is given why Mr. Catarect should do the act. He had not been in good health of late, however, and was able to do little of any work, and it is generally thought that he became suddenly despondent over his condition.
Mr. Catarect was 66 years of age. He is survived by his wife, eleven children and twenty-six grandchildren.
The funeral is to be held from St. Andrew's church Friday morning at 10 o'clock. The burial will be in the Duxbury Catholic cemetery.
