      Suicide
      A gloom was cast over the community last Tuesday morning when the news was spread that Mr. Wendel S. Bauman, a prosperous farmer living between Elmira and St. Jacobs, had committed suicide by hanging. Mr. Bauman had been around as usual and was that morning engaged in farm work. He was found suspended in the barn, by his 16 year old son, who immediately cut the rope, but life had departed. No motive can be assigned excepting that, of late, Mr. Bauman had been despondent over the state of his health. He leaves a widow and three children, the oldest of whom is about 16 years of age.

      Elmira Signet, April 30, 1908
