MACE MASON SUICIDES IN REMORSE OVER EFFECTS OF WHISKEY
News comes from Grasston, Minn., of the suicide of Mace A. Mason, a former resident of Galesville well known in La Crosse. Jason's lifeless body was found suspended from a rafter in a woodshed at his home last Friday. for nearly a year Mason had been slightly deranged, and about six months ago while intoxicated he assaulted his wife, beating her nearly to death. He was bound over to the grand jury on the charge of manslaughter. He brooded over the matter, and at times it appeared that he was losing his mind.
A few weeks ago Mason came to Galesville and remained with relatives up to last week. His actions alarmed those about him, and when he returned to his Minnesota home a nephew accompanied him.
Mason removed from this vicinity about sixteen years ago to Superior. At that time Superior was enjoying its first boom, and the Galesville man made money rapidly in real estate. Next came the time of depression and property decreased in value as rapidly as it had advanced, and Mason lost heavily. Ill luck was followed by hard drinking, and a loss of mind.
