   Suicide. - Henry Langholff, an old resident of the town of Sumner, committed suicide by hanging himself, on Tuesday evening. He had been to Whitewater with Julius Giese, who lives on the Whitewater road. Mr Giese states taht he noticed that Langholff acted quite despondent, and it was with some difficulty that he was pursuaded to accompany him home. In the night the family of Mr Giese heard Langholff get up and go outdoors, but thought nothing further of the matter. Wednesday morning on arising, they were forrified on beholding Langholff hanging to a tree not far from the house, cold and stiff in death. The cause of his death by his own hand is said to be financial troubles. He was about 70 years of age.
