Suicide-Disappointed Love A man in the employ of the Trenton Mill Company hung himself on a tree, south-west of Trenton on Thursday evening, the 20th inst. He had been employed by the proprietors of the mill, for the purpose of hauling coal, and had only been in the employ of the company one day. The following day he fed the horses in the morning, and was seen to pass the coal bank about 5 o'clock in the morning, and at about 3 o'clock he was found, hanging to a tree about three quarters of a mile from Trenton. Squire GUYOT held an inquest on the body and the jury rendered a verdict in accordance with the fact that the deceased came to his death by hanging. It is reported that he was keeping company with a lady in Summerfield, and he had heard of her marriage to another person a day or two ago, and this was the cause of this rash act.
