Suicide by Hanging.
On Monday, April :28th, About 11 i
m in Smith Center, Kansas, Mrs.
Angle Stone, wifo of 11. R. Stone, took
her own lifo by hanging. Tho lady has
beon suffering for somo time with what
was supposed to be u cancerous con
dition of tho bowels. Her sufferings
wero thought to bavo affected her
mind of late as she has made several at
tempts at self destruction. She bad
been watched closely but when least
expected the fatal step was taken.
Apparently in every otuer way her
mind was perfectly normal, which can
bo seen readily from a letter which was
afterwards found and which we have
hereto appended. Mrs. Stone has been
a resident of Smith county since the
early 70'e and was well and favorably
know to a number of people in Web
ster county, Nebraska, and Smith and
Jewell counties, Kansas. Mrs. Stone
was a cousin of Mrs. A. A. Burdick of
this city. The letter left by ber reads
Dear Loved Ones and Prionds Do
not speak tho word of censuroorblamo
for tho act that is forced upon mo
through intense sufTcring of tho nerves,
as by fire, which caunot bo quenched,
and has reached tho limit of human on-
duranco from which tbero is ho hope
hope no escape save this. Heaven
help us all.
I cannot, cannot enduro it longer,
though it is bitterly cruel to bo my
portion to do this thing and through
the act alliict my friends and my fam
ily. The Ruler of All Is the ruler of
our destiny, and wo are not allowed to
escape. I cannot holp myself, and no
one can help mo. May I Und a moro
merciful Infinite Spirit Father on the
other sido of life
Think of me kindly as one who would
be glad to do otherwise if I was per
mitted. Dear ones do not grieve for
me, or put on mourning. Better this
than worse the asylum perhaps,
Only a little longer and wo shall all
bo reunited in our Heavenly Home.
On tho envolopo was written:
Thursday ove Dear ones 1 can't
stay any longor. I am in agony of,
mind and body..
Monday I can't endpro this smart-
