John Lawrence, a young man working on the Adams farm, committed suicide last Friday night by hanging himself. When it was learned Saturday that the young man had not been in his bed all night, his brothers set out to look for him and were greatly astonished to find him hanging on a rope that had been tied to a beam in one of the barns. No cause for this tragic act can be found. The young man was only 17 years of age, and always appeared to be in good spirits. He was a son of respectable parents who reside near Wahpeton. He also has two brothers that are employed on the Adams farm, one of them being the book keeper there.
