Obituary

HANGS HIMSELF IN BARN.

Henry H. Phillips of Springfield, 74 years old, a prosperous farmer for 40 years, committed suicide Monday morning by hanging himself in the barn adjoining his farm. He had been in poor health for some time. Mr. Phillips went to the barn about 6 o'clock to milk his cows and when he did not return his wife and daughter made a search and found the body suspended by a rope from a beam. He is survived by his wife and daughter. He was a Civil war veteran and a member of Rev. Jarvis post. G. A. R.
