     Found Hanging In The Cellar

     Mrs. Nancy Dumont Commits Suicide in Canton.

     Husband Made The Discovery

     Mrs. Dumont Retired as Usual Monday Night — Had Been Dead for Several Hours When Her Body was Found at Four O'clock Tuesday Morning.

     Canton, July 10.—Mrs. Nancy H. Dumont, wife of A. J. Dumont, of 311 High street, committed suicide some time early Tuesday morning by hanging. The family retired as usual Monday night. About 4 o'clock Tuesday morning Mr. Dumont awoke to find his wife had left her bed. He hurriedly made a search of the house and discovered her lifeless body hanging from a joist in the cellar. She had evidently used a step ladder from which she swung herself to eternity, after placing a clothesline around her neck, double, and adjusting a slip knot. The body hung from the joist in the light from the cellar window when discovered. Life was extinct when the body was found and evidently the woman had been dead for several hours. Mr. Dumont cut the body down and a physician was immediately called. Mrs. Dumont is survived by her husband and one daughter Carrie Dumont. The funeral services will be held from the house Thursday afternoon at 2 o'clock, the Rev. E. P. Herbruck officiating. Members of the family say that Mrs. Dumont had been suffering from nervous troubles for several tears and that they had anticipated such a move on her part. All ropes and knives and such instruments as could make self destruction possible were removed from her sight. It is knot known where she secured the rope with which she did the deed. The deceased woman had frequently expressed to members of her family her intention of taking her own life.5
