Big Games This Week.
Next Friday afternoon the Semin
ary team meets Delano at 4 o'clock
in the Seminary hall. On Saturday
evening at 8 o'clock Delano plays the
high school. This arrangement is
made because it is too much for one
school to pay the expenses of Delano
here alone, and as Delano has a
strong team it cannot be omitted.
Everybody should come to these
games, as they will be unusually good
ones. Look for posters on the
street. Don't forget! Admission 15
and 25 cents.

Kills Self So Children May Get In
surance, but Suicide Inval
Minneapolis Journal, Feb. 18: Fac
ing small debts he could not pay,
despondent because of poor business
and tired by the battle with the drink
habit, A. C. Rasmussen, tailor, took
his own life early today in his little
shop in a downtown office building,
for the apparent purpose of enabling
his two small children to collect two
life insurance policies of $1,000 each
he carried in fraternal organizations.
After he was dead it was discover
ed that each policy contained a
clause invalidating the insurance in
case of suicide. That Rasmussen did
not know this was indicated by a
note which he left asking that the
secretaries of the fraternal organi
zations be notified at once of his
death. The father who was willing
to give his life to provide funds for
his children died in vain.
In one of the pitiful notes which
Rasmussen left behind he bequeathed
a pawned watch to his 10-year-old
Rasmussen lived at 1322 Monroe
street NE and a patent, self-heating
tailor's goose in his shop on the
fourth floor pf the Lincoln building,
Third street and Nicollet avenue, was
used by him in taking his life. After
telling Halvor Halvorson, night
watchman of the building, that he in
tended sleeping in the shop, the des
pondent tailor, shortly after midnight
connected the self-heating goose with
a gas fixture in the shop by means of
a rubber tube and placed the goose
on a bench. Then he turned on the
gas, lay down on the bench, thrust
his nose into the gas chamber bf the
goose and breathed gas until he died.
His body was found by Charles and
John Anderson, janitor and engineer
'of the building, today.
C. M. Stocking, in charge of the
Union City mission, said that Ras
mussen had been at the mission Fri
"He said he wanted to get rid of
the drink habit," said Mr. Stocking
today, "and after the services I knelt
down with him and we prayed. I told
him to fight the habit and to pray
when he felt it coming on. On Sun
day afternoon I went to his little
home and there I knelt with the man
and his little daughter and we prayed
for a long time. He told me his debts
were overdue, and he hated to face
Rasmussen leaves two children,
Sylvia, 13 years old, and Roy, 10
years old. That he believed he was
going to benefit them materially by
taking his own life and permitting
them to collect the insurance was in
dicated by two notes which he left,
in the opinion of Coroner Gilbert
One of the notes which Rasmussen.
"Sylvia Rasmussen, 1322 Monroe
'"Dear Sylvia and Roy—I have
been sick so long and cannot attend
to my work. Be a good girl and boy
if anything should happen to me.
Sorry I have to leave you, but can't
stand it any longer. I have insur
ance of $1,000 each in the Woodmen
of the World and the Danish Broth
erhood. This is yours. My watch is
at 403 Washington avenue S., Shap
iro's. It will take $5.50 to get it out.
Give it to Roy. See that the secre

Another note read:
"John Grattun or John Anderson,

some of the fall bills, the house rent
and gas and electric bills? Send my
body to Erl Olson on Franklin. See
to it that it is paid for.
