Veedersburg - June 12 - Peter Otter, a farmer three miles from this place committed suicide some time last night by hanging himself in the barn. When found this morning the body was cold. The only possible reason which can be given for the deed is that he had recently been sued for the first time in his life. It worried him very much and today was the day for him to appear in court. He was 50 years old, a mon of family and very highly respected.
