Robert Allison

Two weeks ago Robert Allison and wife, of Tracy Station, Laporte county, quarrelled and separated, he driving her from the house. The indignant neighbors warned him to leave the place, and he attempted to commit suicide by taking morphine, but was pumped out and saved. He finally coaxed his wife to live with him again, until last Wednesday, when she again left, after being knocked down and choked by him. Allison threatened to kill her should she leave, but a neighbor assisted her, whereupon Allison blew his own brains out with a gun.
