Mrs. Blanche Hen drick, wife of Jesse flendrick, brake man on the freight, committed suicide by shooting herself through tbe heart with a revolver. The neighbors were fiist alarmed by healing cries from the yard of the bouse where Hendricks lived, and upon their arrival tbere they found Hendricks himself wander ing about the yard with a revolver in his hand in a state of mental collapse Upon being asked what was the trou ble he said that his wife had shot her self, and if she was dead that be was going to shoot himself also. Several people went into the bease and found Mrs. Hendricks lying on toe kitchen on her back with her arms stretched out, and evidently dead. There was a quantity of blood on her breast, and upon examination it was found that there was a bullet wound just under hei heart. Dr. Dugoid of Springfield, the county coroner was at once sent for and upon his arrival with tbe under taker, Mr. Montfore, also of Spring field, an inqnest was held upon tbe spot. All the evidence want to show that Hendrick s statement w. a sub etantially correct. It seemed that there had been a little trouble be tween them on account of Hendrick s going to a ball game in the afternoon contrary ti tbe bis wife's wishes. Upon his return from the game te fund her cooking supper. They had a few words of s somewhat quarrelsome na tuie, and Hendricks said that if they could not get along together better than that, that he would leave her. She thereupon went cat of tbe room in to tbe kitchen,and she revolver most have taken with her. as in a few min 'V--- v*r utes Hendricks heard a shot, and going into tbe kitcbeD found her ae de scribed. He thereupon took up the re volver and went out to the yard crying for help and threatening to shoot him self. It seemed that Mrs. Hendricks had le?n in rather poor health of late and had been somewhat despondent on ac count of being so much alone at home. She was a woman who was highly respected in tbe communty. It is on ly a few weeks ago that she had been elected organist of the Congregational chnrcb. tbe duties of which office she took much pride in performing. She will be greatly missed in tbe town. Jne sad thing in connection with tbis lamentable affair is tbe fact that she has left a little six months old baby, who will have to be taken care of by tbe neighbors until her friends can be fommunicat^d with. She formerly lived in Marion Junc tion, and has some lelatives nesr lHMBtbeslain. Harmful Medicines i an not be sold by any druggist in America today except nnder penalty of the law.
