Wealthy Farmer Killed Himself.
Minot.—Shooting himself through the heart with a 44-calibre revolver, Wm. A. Brown, a wealthy farmer, living three miles east of Berthold, committed suicide at 6 o'clock. Brown owned three quarter sections of the finest land in Ward county, had money in the bank and a good crop, and was in good financial condition. He was a widower and leaves two small children. The hired man heard the shot and found the dead body in the granary. No reason can be found for his act.
