    Sad Death - We very much regret to hear that Mrs. David Clemens, living near Roseville, committed suicide by hanging on Wednesday afternoon last. It appears that Mrs. Clemens for some short time has been slightly deranged, and her family had kept a close watch upon her for fear she might do herself some injury. On the afternoon mentioned she had been doing some little work in the garden, and went into the smokehouse which was contiguous. Her family did not notice her absence for a short time, but when they did, went at once in search of her, and on opening the smokehouse door were horrified to find her hanging in a leaning position with the loop of rope which was attached to a hook in the little building, underneath her chin, but not tied around her neck. When found she was leaning forward in the loop of the rope, with her feet on the ground. She was scarcely dead, but all efforts to restore her were fruitless. Dr. Philip held an inquest yesterday, Thursday. The relatives of the deceased are amongst our most worthy and esteemed citizens, and they have the sympathy of the entire community their great sorrow.

    One who will soon be classed among the old settlers of Preston is Christopher Kress, who by his energy and pluck has accumulated considerable property and who has greatly aided in giving Preston a good name as a desirable place of resort for the cure of rheumatism and kindred diseases, through its mineral baths.

    The mineral springs were struck by one Peter Erb while boring for salt in 1838, which he never obtained. He placed no value in the sulphur water he had so struck. After abandoning boring, the water of the spring was employed for driving an overshot wheel of a wagon making shop, occupied by one Daniel Hagey, until Mr. Samuel Cornell obtained from Mr. Joseph Erb sufficient land near the spring to erect an hotel. Mr. Cornell with great energy built suitable premises and a bath house with boiler to enable him to furnish hot and cold baths.. His undertaking proved successful but death terminated his career. The property was sold and Christopher Kress became its owner. He greatly enlarged, improved and ornamented it and the invalids who have sought and obtained relief at the Preston mineral baths count by the hundreds.
