Dried Out

Too Many Creditors.

A. H. Peterson of Bowdon, a farmer who ran a threshing rig this year, committed suicide by shooting himself with a rifle.

Mr. Peterson had been harrassed {sp} some of late by his creditors, and being unable to meet his obligations took his life.

He went about twenty rods from his house, bared his breast and shot himself through the heart, by placing the muzzle of a 44 calibre rifle against his left breast. When found he was lying on his face, having fallen forward on the weapon which he used to take his life. Death must have occurred instantaneously, as the bullet had passed through his heart.
