  • Notes 
    • SCHWENDIMANN- (Hespeler, Ont.) May 14 - A most lamentable case of suicide occurred here sometime during last night, when Miss Susan Schwendimann drowned herself in the Brodie milldam. She was missed from her room this morning, and search being made, her body was found floating in the water. She was a most estimable person, in the prime of her life and in circumstances above the average. Her aged mother, who had been tenderly cared for by the deceased for years, died recently, and since that event Miss Schwendimann had been in failing health, doubtless due to grief to her mother's death. No reason other than this can be assigned for the rash act. She left a note saying that she had gone along the river side, and that it was all her own fault.1a
