Brooding over his mother's death, killed by an infuriated bull at Mandan several months ago, Sam Klaschko hanged himself at his home near Raleigh
. A 14-year-old girl making a trip to the Klachko home on an errand found his body hanging from a beam in the residence. The nagging of creditors, together with his mother's death, unbalanced his mind. He was 24 years old.
