Robert Yule, member of a pioneer famile of Kenosha county, committed suicide Saturday morning at the residence of his nephew, B. F. Yule in the town of Somers, near Kenosha. He hung himself to the peak of the roof of a barn on the Yule farm. He was 64 years old.
A company of friends had been entertained at the Yule residence on Thursday evening, and Robert Yule slipped away while the festivity was at its height. Nothing more was seen of him until, his dead body was found. Yule had been showing signs of despondency for some time.
