B.F. Henley

Mr. B.F. Henley, an old citizen of this place, and a man highly respected, committed suicide last Monday. Mr. Henley had been partially deranged for some time, and last Monday morning locked himself up in his crib and stabbed himself in the breast with a knife, aiming as is supposed to reach his heart, and then cut across his breast. He was not found until late in the evening, was yet alive but speechless. A physician was immediately called in,  but too late; he died the next evening. His family has our heartfelt sympathy.
