Bruns, John, Oct 29, 1920

John Bruns, aged 41, committed suicide here last Monday by cutting his throat with a pocket knife. The affair happened half a mile west of town near the railroad tracks, a brakeman on a passing train giving the first notice of the tragedy. James McKinnon and Mayor Armstrong immediately went in an auto to the scene and discovered the body, still warm, with the knife still in his hand. The coroner was called and he pronounced it a clear case of suicide. Deceased had Canadian money in his pockets and there was no evidence of foul play. Fred Bruns came in and identified the body as that of his brother. It appears that John had come down from his home in Canada on Saturday, had paid a brief visit to his brother and had come back to town to take the train back home. Changing his mind he walked out to the edge of town, sat down on a telephone pole lying near the track and ended his life. Other than despondency, no cause is offered for the man’s self-destruction, but an old mark on his head gives evidence of a former head injury that might easily have produced mental irregularity. The body was cared for by Undertaker J E Turner, who prepared it for shipment to Molson, the funeral to be held this Friday. Deceased was born in Brown County, WI, and spent 22 years in the Palouse and Big Bend regions, moving up near Molson, BC, some 8 years ago. He is survived by a wife and a 3 year old adopted son. He was one of a family of 13 children, 6 of whom survive him, 3 sisters and 3 brothers.
