  • Notes 
    • ROSEBRUGH (St. George, Ont.) Feb. 4 - Albert Rosebrugh committed suicide to-day while returning from Galt, where he had been delivering a load of grain. Before his return he purchased a revolver, and when about two miles from Galt shot himself in the forehead. The team he was driving came home alone, and on going back to see him, he was found dead on the road with the money for the grain in his pockets. No one seems to have passed in the interim an hour before his friends found him. Two chambers of the revolver were empty. Evidently one had been used to test the weapon. He was about 21 years of age and a son of William Rosebrugh, a respected farmer from South Dumfries township. He had been suffering from ill-health for a few weeks.1a
