  • Notes 
    • WATSON (Galt, Ont.) May 4 - William Watson, a farmer, aged 22, living on the Clyde road, about two miles from here, committed suicide this morning by hanging. For a year past the deceased has suffered intense pain in the head, which almost drove him crazy, and there is no doubt that the rash act was committed while suffering. He was a most exemplary young man and unmarried, living with his widowed mother, whose farm he managed.1a
