A Former Cttleu or n .orellelil Township
Michael (John, who inuvid from Moorefield
township, this c .unty, to eun about six
weeks ago, hanged hinisell at that place on
Ve'edneaday evening He arose from the sup
per table and went deliberately to the wood
shed and committed the deed, and was dead
when discovered. His wils ia an
invalid being subject to jiaral)-
ais anl has been helpless for
yeara. The cau-e of the rab act is sutqosed
to have been his inability to gt work.
When (John had left the house he went di
rectly to a little woodshed, which he bad just
completed. A pile of dirt lay in the center
of the sheil, and standing ou that he fastened
a piece ot sisal (a kind of twine about 3-1C of
an inch in diameter and very strong) Io the
center piece supjKirting the roof. He then
made a noose in the other end ol the
twine, and, placing it around his neck, swung
himself off the pile. The shed was so low
that he was obliged to double his limbs under
him in order to preient his feet trom re sling
ou the ground. "Jimmie" cut htm down im
mediately, but it was then too late, life teiug
A hal'-jnnt bottle, nearly full of whisky,
was fjund in a pocket of the dead man's coat.
He had been drinking during the day and
waa considerably under the influence ofltquor
when he committed the rash act.
His wife says that he waa born in Wnghts
Mlle, York county, Penna)lvania, on the 4th
of February, lri!2, thus making him lu-ienty-three
years of age last February. He lis.) a
brother and aister and eight children living in
