Olaf Jacobson, a farmer living five miles northwest of Fargo, committed suicide in a sensational manner. He had been ill several weeks and had started with Mrs. Jacobson for Hendrum, Minn.
, to consult a physician. After they had crossed the bridge over the Red river Jacobson sprang from the center of the buggy, ran back to the center of the bridge and jumped over the railing into the river. His body sank immediately. He left five children.
