THE LAST GAME. TRAGEDY OF TWO BROTHERS. Seated side by side near a chessboard on which they had apparently played a final game, two brothers were on Monday found dead in their house in Ellison-road, Streat- ham-common. Their names were Theodore Block, fifty-six, and Louis Block, forty-eight, and they are described as a commercial tra- veller and an animal painter., About 8.30 on Monday morning their housekeeper found on the breakfast-room mantelpiece a letter •igned by both men and addressed to her as follows: — "We hate to live and are not afraid to die. We wish our bodies to be cremated at as little expense as possible. We wish for no service. To compensate you for your trouble we leave you the whole of the furniture in the UBØ, pictures, etc., together with the little money that is left. After we have been cremated our ashes are to be thrown away." On the room being entered the brothers were found as described. Glasses beside them seemed to have contained cyanide of potassium.
