According to the Orerland Chinia Mal a method of suicide of an original char acter has been invented and carried in to successful effect in Hong Kong by a Chinese servant of the name of Yeung. un-Hing. In the first place he attempted to pass out of life by the commo iplaco method of a dose of opium. He was, howeve, r brought round by prompt meas ures taken by a Chinese doctor, who re sided in the sam: house. But he was not tobe balked in his intention, and two days later he procured a heavy ham mer and a long nail, and with the for mer he drove the latter so dcply int) his skull that, although every effort was made at the government civil hospital to save his life, be expired the next day. A man must, indeed, be bent upon self destruction who will hammer a nail into his head. It would be diflicult to imagine any form of suicide demanding greater nerve and reso:ution.
