Sebastian Hendricks of Washburn, forty-four years old, and unmarried, committed suicide by cutting his throat from ear to ear with a dull knife in the Second National bank at Minot. He was found unconscious, but Coroner Crokat revived him with drugs and learned his name and address. The man shortly before he died said he had a brother Joe at Washburn and said he took his own life. His wrists were badly cut. He had been drinking heavily and was short on funds.
