Struck By Auto


Charles Lee Blows Brains Out With Revolver Sunday Afternoon While Wife was Visiting in Granville—Was Despondent.

Charles Lee, who lived on a rented farm northeast of Granville, took his own life Sunday afternoon by shooting himself through the head with a 44 calibre revolver. The man had been despondent for several days, and on Saturday his wife noted that he was unusually so. She telephoned to Relatives in Granville, who went out to the farm Saturday evening, and Sunday morning they took Mrs. Lee to town. Lee then went to the barn and committed the deed. The remains have been shipped to the old home in Iowa. The man was about 35 years of age.
