Special Dispatch to The Patriot
Carlisle. Dec. 23 - Cleveland Eckels, a young man residing a short distance north of New Kingstown, took his life on Sunday evening. During the past Fall he has been residing with his brother-in-law, William Line, of Bonny Brook, who is a former rural mail carrier of this place. He was assisting Mr. Line with his Fall work.

Last evening Mr. and Mrs. Line went out driving, and returned to their home about 8:30 o'clock, and found the young man lying on the sofa unconscious. Dr. W. S. Ruch, of this place, was immediately summoned, but Eckels was beyond the reach of medical skill, and death ensued about 12:30 o'clock last night.

The young man is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel F. Eckels, who reside north of New Kingstown. He was aged 19 years, and very highly respected. He is survived by his parents and the followng sisters and brother: Mrs Line, Bonny Brook; Theresa, and a small sister at home, and a brother, Penn, in Goldfield, Iowa.

The body will be taken to his home, near New Kingstown. The funeral will be strictly private, on Thursday, and interment will be made in the Longsdorf graveyard, at that place.
