A FRIGHTFUL SUICIDE

GEORGE GRUMBLING, OF OLD NINEVEH, KILLS HIMSELF

Crazed by the Grip, He Thrusts His Head Through a Pane of Glass, and Then Saws His Neck on the Fragments Until Fatally Cut.

George Grumbling, living near Old Nineveh, who had been ill with the grip, committed suicide this morning about 5 o’clock by pushing his head through a pane of glass and sawing on the fragments until the vital organs were severed.

His wife and another woman heard the noise and ran to his assistance. They could do nothing with him, and left him hanging until they called a man from the barn. When the women returned Grumbling was dead.

Deceased was about thirty years of age. The doctors were with him all last night, and he seemed much better when they left him this morning, a short time before the terrible deed.

The funeral will take place to-morrow afternoon at 2 o’clock.
