      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.
