Young Physician’s Suicide.
Preston, Minn., Feb. 7,—News was brought to this village last night that Dr. Robert Conkey, of Canton, Minn., has taken his own life, first by opiates and then by stabbing himself to the heart. He was a student at the State University of Minnesota, but finished his medical course and graduated at the Rush Medical College of Chicago last summer. He was a son of Hon. C. H. Conkey, of this village, and gave promise of a successful career. No cause for the suicide can be given by his friends.
