Henry C Thompson- Yesterday, Wednesday morning, Henry C Thompson, a well to do farmer, living about one half mile from Terrytown, shot and killed himself. He arose about five o’clock; dressed himself and calling the hired man proceeded to the kitchen where he built a fire in the kitchen stove. Soon after the hired man came down stairs and proceeded to the barn to do the chores. Shortly after he came downstairs, Mrs. Thompson (who had not yet arisen) heart Mr. T go upstairs and immediately thereafter heard a noise like the faint report of a pistol. In a few minutes she got up and when she had breakfast ready she called from the door for Mr. T. and the hired man. The hired man, on coming into the house, informed her that he had seen nothing of Mr. Thompson. Mrs. T. then called to him up the stairway, but receiving no answer, the hired man went up the stairs and near the door of his room discovered Mr. Thompson. He had shot himself twice with a revolver. One ball had entered the left breast near the heart, the other just above and back of the right ear. Death was probably nearly instantaneous from the wound in the head. Mr. Thompson was about 33 years of age. Owned the farm on which he resided and was highly respected in the community. No cause can be assigned for the taking of his own life –Bradford Republican.

There is a curiosity in the Big Pond about one-half mile from this place. It is a floating island in summer and is covered with black elder and cranberry bushes, but in winter it remains in one place and of course is shelter for fish.
