A DINAS POWIS HOAX. It is reported that about seven o'clock on Thurs- day evening information was received at Penarth Police Station which pointed to what, in all pro- bability, is a. case of suicide of a romantic and determined character. A piece of thin boarding was handed to Police-sergeant J. Sansom on which was written with ink, in a somewhat indistinct hand, the following ominous sentence :— I will be found drcwned in the Dinas Powis Brook by the time this board is picked up." Inspector Rutter at once caused inquiries to be made, and it was ascertained that a boy named Morris, belonging to Dinas Powis had threatened to commit suicide because his mother would insist upon him going to sea. Information was sent to Police-constable Herbert Evans, the constable in charge at Dinas Powis, who has the matter in hand, and at a latter hour on Thursday night steps were taken to search for the boy's body in the brook at Dinas Powis. Further inquiries show that the would-be suicide left the following note, also written on a thin piece of board Dear Mother,—You know I don't like going to sea, therefore I shall not go any more. God have mercy on my soul. Good-bye W. MORRIS. Up. to a late hour on Thursday night nothing definite in respect to the mystery had transpired.
