George McDonald, a young Scotch farm hand, despondent because he was not getting along the way he thought he should, took a rifle and shot himself through the heart, dying instantly on Sunday last. McDonald was employed on the farm of W. Christian, Clinton township. The Christians were in Toronto and when they arrived home about 8 oclock at night found the remains of McDonald. Deceased was in his 23rd year and had made all preparations to return to his home in Scotland; even to having secured his passport and had on his person a hundred dollars lately sent him by his mother to pay his passage back. Coroner Dr. Elmore was called in and after learning the circumstances of the case and after an examination of the remains deemed an inquest unnecessary.
