Drinks Poison and Dies.
Mrs. Annie Harryhausen, about 40 years of age, committed suicide by drinking poison in the Valencia Hotel at 718 Valencia street, Wednesday night. She left farewell notes to her brother and sister, telling them that she desired to quit the earth because of illness. Mrs. Harryhausen applied for a room Wednesday night, saying she wished it for a week. Yesterday afternoon she did not respond to a call and the door was forced. When a chambermaid and Special Policeman Reed entered they found her dead. A bottle of morphine stood on a table and another of laudanum was clutched in her hand.
