Manager of a Grange Store Suicides

OLATHE – Isaac Rudy, for over 15 years manager of the Grange store at Springhill, this county, quietly walked into a room at his home yesterday [Nov. 15] and, with a revolver sent a bullet into his forehead. No cause is advanced for his act, except it be that he was worried over the effort to sell the store from under him after he had worked for 15 years to make it a success. No one suspects him of any wrongdoing financially. The Kinsley Graphic, Kinsley, Kansas. November 20, 1903.
