The man said he wanted tho doctor to go and attend his sick wife. The doctor then asked the man who ho was and where he lived. The visitor answered that his name was Corbin, and that he lived on East Good- ale street. The doctor said he was too ill to go out, but would fix him some powders. He did so and opened the door a few inches to hand them out, when the man burst into the hall, drew his re- volver, placed it against the doctor's head and said: "I'll kill at the same time pulling the trigger, but it failed to go off, and the doctor immediately grabbed the man. After a desperate struggle the doctor succeeded in taking the revolver away from the assassin, whereupon he ran out. The family, with the doctor, then, went up stairs and directly the man came back aiitl smashed in several windows with bouldars. The doctor's daughter ran to the telephone and called up police headquarters. A patrol wagon was sent to the residence and a guard placed at the house. It is thought to be a bold attempt at assassination or to murder the doctor for money. The object was to get the doctor out on an errand of mercy, like Dr. Cronin's case, when the unknown man, with other confederates noa-- and in hiding, would pounce on and kill him.
