The community was greatly shocked on Wednesday morning to learn of the death of Chas. Kane which occurred at his home at 8 o'clock, by an act of his own hand. Upon arising that morning Chas. did not eat his usual meal, went out to the barn to do the chores and following this came in the house sat by his sister, told her that he had taken poison and expired immediately. The young man had not been feeling well for the past four months, and his father states that a severe relapse of the Flu epidemic over a year ago might have brought on temporary insanity which caused him to take his life. The deceased was of quiet disposition, of good habits and was well liked in this community where he had grown to manhood. Mr. Kane was in the service of Uncle Sam a short time during the late war, but was rejected at Camp Dodge, IA., on account of physical disability. He was also a member of Count Creighton Council Knights of Columbus. He leaves to mourn besides his father, Geo. Kane, one brother, Geo. Jr., and three sisters, Rose Kane, Mrs. E. F. McManus, Bloomfield, and Sister Seneca of Earling, IA. The funeral will be held on Friday morning and the services will be conducted by Rev. Father Windolph. The (Creighton) News unites with the many friends of the family in extending sincere sympathy to the bereaved in this their sad hour.
