      ENDS LIFE IN A CELL

      Albert Armstrong, of Streator, is believed to have been unbalanced.

      Streator, March 8.--(Special.)-- Albert Armstrong, driver for Baker Bros. Wholesale Grocery Company, committed suicide just before noon today by hanging himself with a shirt stript (sic) from his back, at the police station. He was found by Chief Hopkins, who went into the cell to talk with the man, Armstrong was arrested last evening on complaint of his wife, who claims her husband had threatened her life and acted as if he were suffering from mental aberration. This morning, when the driver was arraigned, he was placed under peace bond of $500. He had no defense to make, merely saying, "anything she says, gentlemen, is right."- About 10:30 he asked to use the telephone. Armstrong then endeavored to get some one to go his bond. This he failed to do and was disappointed when locked up again.
