    • John Cook, aged 60, an old and respected resident of this place and a veteran of the Civil War, committed suicide by hanging himself yesterday morning. He arose at about 8 o?clock as usual, prepared and ate his breakfast and after calling his daughter and giving her a cup of coffee, left the house and was not seen again. His son-in-law, Joseph Quigg, having occasion to visit the barn about 8 o?clock, was horrified at finding him hanging to a post by a small strap.

      Coroner W.G. Babcock was summoned and after an examination pronounced an inquest unnecessary. The cause was probably despondency.
