A Sad Affair.
Judge Robert B. Trippe is Found Dead In His Office.

It was with much pain and regret that the people of this city heard last Friday of the death of Judge Robert B. Trippe, formerly of Cartersville, but for the last several years a resident of Atlanta. When it was learned that he had died by his own hands his many friends were shocked—it being almost impossible of conjecture why so gifted a man, and one who seemed to be surrounded by everything that would make life desirable, would be the author of his own destruction……He was the son of the late Judge Trippe and was himself for several years judge of the county court. He had many relatives and friends in this city and county. He has twice been married. His first wife was Miss Renfroe, of Columbus, Ga. His second wife whom he married about eighteen months ago, was Miss Pauline Winter, of Atlanta. Judge Trippe leaves two bright little boys by his first wife, and a little girl by his second.

Bad health is the alleged cause of the rash act. He has been a constant sufferer from asthma, and the belief that the disease was incurable brought about a great mental depression, and that death was the only thing that could relieve him.
