FARMER'S WIFE TAKES OWN LIFE
MRS. ALBERT SEALS COMMITS SUICIDE LAST WEDNESDAY NIGHT.
This community was greatly shocked last Thursday morning when it was learned that Mrs. Albert Seals, who resided with her family on the Mrs. F.E. Nelson farm in West Creek township, had taken her own life. She committed the rash act about 10 o'clock on Wednesday night. Her husband had been outside doing some work and came in the house and sat down. A few minutes later she took the little babe and went into the bedroom. The husband supposed she was going to retire. A few minutes later he heard the report of a gun, and rushing into the room he found the body of his wife where it had fallen after the shooting. She had placed the muzzle of the gun in her mouth and pulled the trigger, and the result was that the entire top part of her head was blown away. Death was instantaneous.
Mrs. Seals' mind has not been right for some time and she had returned from the northern hospital a few weeks ago where she had been taking treatments, and it was thought that she was better. It is thought that a sudden fit of despondency came on her that night, and not realizing what she was doing she took her life. She was 32 years of age and leaves to mourn her in the immediate family her husband and five children. The bereaved husband and children have the sympathy of the entire community. The family have lived in this section for several years and during their residence here have made a host of friends.
Funeral services were held at the home Friday afternoon at 2, and interment was made in West Creek cemetery in charge of Weaver and Son.
