John Stout, who lived on a small piece of land of about five acres, which he owned, north of the Indiana Mineral Springs in the south part of Pine Township, was found between his house and stable cold in death last Sunday morning by a neighbor. The lamp was still burning in the house which argued that he must have started to the stable sometime during the darkness and fell dead where found. It is supposed that he died of apoplexy. Mr. Stout was never married and lived alone here on his little premises some years previous to his death. An inquest was held Sunday, particulars of which we have been unable to get fully and the remains were laid to rest in Hillside Cemetery near this place Monday after at 2 o'clock. None were present to tell the story of his death. Harry Magie was taken sick with typhoid fever in the fall. He lingered until last Thursday morning, when he ended his life by hanging himself in his room to a nail with two handkerchiefs. He had become deranged and was closely watched, but caught his friends out long enough to put himself out of the way. The funeral services were held at the house of Rev. Miller and the remains were followed to the grave by a large concourse of sympathizing friends. The family has labored day and night to bring him back to his health. He was thirty-three years old, had traveled and worked in the west as a carpenter, returning home in bad health, he said, to die.
