Aged Farmer Hangs Himself.
Elias Filteau, aged sixty, committed suicide near Grand Forks by hanging himself in a barn on his premises, while the other members of the family were at church. He used a dray chain, making a loop out of the chain and attached the other end to a bolt in the ceiling. He then kicked out a barrel on which he stood. Ill health, due to an accident a number of years ago, is given as the probably cause.
