SUICIDE OF HENRY COLE -
The dead body of HENRY COLE, unmarried, age about 45 years, who lived with his sister near Sanfords Corners was found at the foot of Rutland Hill, near Black River, by Clarance Woodward, about 10 o'clock last Thursday morning. Cole had been killed by a gunshot wound and the weapon was near him the stock resting on a bush. When found the clothing on Cole's body was on fire. Mr. Woodward extinguished the flames and gave the news of the affair. Coroner Rexford was notified but after looking into the matter concluded that an inquest was unnecessary as it was a clear case of suicide. Cole had been visiting his brother in Huntingtonville and left there for his home Tuesday night, taking his shotgun with him. The next heard of him was Thursday morning when he was found a corpse. It is supposed that he had been roaming about from the time he left his brother's home. He had a severe illness last spring and since that time had been somewhat demented.
