Woman Makes Curious Suicide Attempt in 1911

(01/18/2002)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of the Calhoun Chronicle dated 3/7/1911.

Last Monday night at her home on Leatherbark, this county, Mrs. Rufus Mace ate almost a stick of Dynamite with suicide intent, which came near proving fatal, but owing to the timely arrival of Dr. Morford, of this place and Dr. Riddle of Arnoldsburg, she would, no doubt have died.  At present she is recovering and will soon be well.
