Another severe shock to our citizens was the suicide of Hank Myers in his office, Saturday morning. The cause was despondency over his crippled condition caused by a runaway last week, and his financial affairs. He was hardly able to walk about and has been heard to say several times he wished he had been killed instead of hurt.
The shot was heard at 4 a.m. and he was found at day light with a bullet wound in his head and the revolver lying across his lap. He always carried a key to the bank building in which his office was located and he had secured a revolver in one of the drawers in the bank. It was a 38 caliber Colts. Hank had no enemies, and has always been quite well liked by the boys of the town. –Gage Record. (this is Henry Myers)
