Clara Minnie Olsen, 22 years old, to commit suicide by inhaling illuminating gas in her bedroom yesterday afternoon. The woman who is barely 22 years of age was discovered by Mrs. Selmine [sic] Winblad who detected the deathly fumes of gas coming from the bedroom. The girl was lying one the bed with one end of the gas tube fastened between her teeth and the other was connected to the gas jet over her head. Mrs. Winblad terrified at the sight of the body of the young girl ran out to the street ... When he examined the body the doctor said that the girl had been dead for some time. Six years ago at the death of her mother, when the suicide was left with a younger sister and brother an orphan, the Winblads took Minnie Olsen into their home. ... The girl was treated as a daughter by their friends and during the course of her stay at the home of the good people she fell in love with Anton, the only son of the Winblads, The couple were engaged to marry and the date was agreed upon, but Anton left the home of his parents and went to Cuba, where he is now. Since his departure from her side the young woman began to grieve for Anton and then, too, the news which she received through various sources that all was not well with her brother and sister, completely unnerved her and her suicide was the consequence. ..."
