-SUICIDE.
Louie HALVORSON, a Norwegian, committed suicide by hanging, in his room at the Grayling, House last Saturday. He had been at work part of the summer at Peters' lumber camp, and was known by his comrades as a fine scholar, and a quiet unobtrusive man, though at times overcome by his appetitite for liquor. He had been out of work for some time, and was despondent and penniless, and as far as can be found has no friends in this country. His work was deliberate, he having written on an envelope which was found in his pocket, in his own language: "God help me. I have so much trouble, I will end it with my life. Good bye all. L. H." He then took a piece of clothes line and carefully adjusted a noose about his neck, and fastened the other end to a clothes hook on the wall, only a little higher than his head, and deliberately sank down to his death. When discovered, about noon, Dr. INSLEY was called and decided that he had been dead for three or four hours. There was no evidence of any struggle, and a gentleman sleeping in the next room, was not disturbed.
Justice McELROY, after an investigation, decided, that an inquest was unnecessary, and Sheriff CHALKER took charge of the body, removing it to the undertaking rooms of Braden & Forbes, and on Monday was buried at the expense of the county. (26 Nov 1896)
