Mrs. Willard Ames, of Hickory,
Suicides by Poisoning.
The sad intelligence reaches us that Mrs. Willard Ames, of Hickory, committed suicide by taking a dose of paris green Tuesday, dying the same day. Since the accidental death of a child several years ago, under most painful circumstances, an account of which was published at the time, her mind has been unbalanced and this added to ill health doubtless prompted the rash act. The funeral will be held to-day at eleven o'clock. The most sincere sympathy goes out to Mr. Ames and family in their terrible calamity. Mrs. Ames was highly spoken of by those who knew her and the tragic ending of her life is indeed deplorable.

The Last Sad Rites Attended by Many People
The funeral of Mrs. Hannah R. Ames was held Thursday morning at 10:30 o'clock, at the Hickory church, a congregation attending that filled the church to its capacity. The Millburn choir was present, and sang several beautiful selections. The ninetieth Psalm was read, followed by an address by Rev. W. E. Brown, based upon the text found in Isaiah 61-1: "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek: He hath sent me to bind up the broken hearted; to proclaim liberty unto the captives, and the opening of the prisons to them that are bound."
After the close of the service, which was an impressive one, a long procession followed the body to the Hickory cemetery, where the mortal remains of the beloved wife and mother were laid to rest, beneath a bank of flowers which her friends had placed upon the casket.
Mrs. Ames was born in Waukegan in 1853, and died at her home at Hickory Corners Tuesday evening, Oct. 26, at 5 o'clock. She had been married twenty-four years, and during the greater part of that time resided in the home where she died. She was highly esteemed by all who knew her as a beautiful, self-sacrificing, Christian character. Until the loss of her little boy three years ago she was an active member of the church, and since that time has held fast her Christian integrity; but the excessive grief, caused by the sudden accidental death of her child, cast a gloom over her life. Her sudden departure is greatly to be regretted. She leaves a husband, a son, three daughters, an aged father, two brothers and four sisters to mourn her demise.

Hon. Charles Whitney is not alone in springing a matrimonial surprise upon the citizens of Waukegan. The announcement of his marriage yesterday is followed today by the announcement of the marriage of another citizen, that comes equally unexpectedly.

The groom is too well know as one of Waukegan's substantial and estimable citizens to make comment necessary. The bride is a daughter of A. T. White, a prosperous citizen of Loon Lake neighborhood. She is a charming lady, one whom the people of Waukegan will delight in welcoming. Their many friends will extend their heartiest of congratulations and best wishes. - Gazette- Register, Oct. 28.
