Meets Death

Suicides On Wedding Day

Unexplainable Deed of Young Minnesota Farmer

Glencoe, Minn, June 9.—John Dammond, a farmer living eight miles from here, who was to have been married during the morning, committed suicide by hanging shortly after midnight. He was engaged to Dora Walters, a neighbor's daughter, whom he has known from childhood. They were born within two weeks of each other and have been friends and playmates all their lives.
