Former County Officer Kills Self By Hanging
Napoleon, N. D., Dec. 19.—Jacob Kruger, 58, former commissioner of Logan county, committed suicide, by hanging himself in one of the barns on his farm near Fredonia. Worries over ill health and adverse crop conditions and inability to meet payments on a parcel of land acquired two years ago are ascribed as the cause of his suicide. He leaves a wife and several children. He was a native of Bessarabia, Russia.
