-NEW SCHOOL HOUSE.- In District No. 9,
-SUICIDE BY HANGING.- Last Saturday night, Andrew U. Peterson, hung himself to a tree on his farm, 3 miles east of Lyle village, in Nevada township.
There seems to be no rational cause assigned for the act, as Peterson was well-to-do, and his family relations were always pleasant. He had recently sold his farm, and was to give possession in a few days. It is said he regretted the sale, and that he had to leave the old farm worked upon his mind. This fact, together with intemperate drinking, are the only causes assigned for the act.

A BRIEF SKETCH OF THE LIFE
OF MRS. INGEBORG VOLSTAD.
Mrs. O T Richardson Died
The Same Pall Bearers That Carried Her
Husband to His Last Resting Place
Weep not, that her toils are over,
Weep not that her race is run.

When our work, like hers, is done.
Till then, we yield with gladness,
Our mother, to Him, to keep,
And rejoice in the sweet assurance
He giveth His loved one sleep.
