Obituary

FOLLOWED WIFE'S EXAMPLE
Frank Ladue of South Bristol Took Carbolic Acid

Bristol, July 13. - Frank Ladue aged 66, residing at South Bristol, committed suicide this afternoon, taking an ounce of carbolic acid. He visited this village today returning home about two o'clock. He then went to his room and took the poison. He was found about eight o'clock lying dead beside his bed.

His wife took her own life December last by hanging. Ladue had been acting queer of late, walking about a good deal and it is now thought that he has been insane foe some time.
