The people of this district were shocked to learn of the sad death of Miss Edna Fisher, a 22 year old girl in the employ of Mr. William Zimmerman, a farmer of South Clinton township, on Friday, Feb. 21, 1919, the young lady being found lying across her bed, fully dressed with a 22 calibre bullet in her heart, the rifle beside her. The bullet had passed through her body and was located on the floor on the other side of the bed. It is believed that the girl had got into some trouble, it being stated that a letter was found in which she accused a man residing in the vicinity of being responsible for her condition. Dr. Elmore of Beamsville was called as Coroner, and after reviewing the remains and taking in account all the circumstances, decided it was a clear case of suicide through despondency. The young girl's parents reside near Bismarck, and have the deepest sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement. Mr. Zimmerman and his son were in town the day previous and on returning home that evening missed the young lady, who was their housekeeper, but did not think anything unusual by her absence as Miss Fisher was in the habit of going to the neighbours and remaining for some hours at a time, and it was not until the next morning, when she was still absent, that search was instituted with the above results.
