Grieved over a Daughter’s Death,
Eldora, Oct. 9.—Mrs. Dellilah Ackles, wife of Watson B. Ackles, committed suicide at an early hour this morning by deliberately placing herself in two feet of water in the residence cistern. Several years ago the family lost a daughter, since which time the mind of Mrs. Ackles has been affected.

Transcriber’s Note: Find a Grave shows her name as Delilah “Della” and that she was born Jan. 4, 1848 and that she is buried in the Eldora City Cemetery.
