Arthur Hachez [1883 – 1911] --- Calumet County reporter --- May 31, 1911
Arthur Hachez, the 28 year old son of Mr. and Mrs. Ferd. Hachez, of this village, shot himself in the fore head with a twenty-two rifle about half past nine Tuesday morning, while his parents were at the cemetery putting flowers on the graves of relatives. On their return home about ten o'clock that morning they were surprised to see their son coming to meet them with blood streaming down his face. No admission could be gained from him as to how the shot was fired, and he would only mumble incoherently. His one wish was to be left alone and it seemed as though he wanted to die. Dr. Martens was immediately called, but the young man pushed the doctor aside when he tried to examine the wound and refused to be treated. Force was used to subdue the patient and the wound was dressed. Latest reports say that the patient is resting easily, but no hopes can be given that he will live.
The shot was fired in the kitchen of the house, the bullet entering the center of the forehead and taking a downward course on the left side entering the mouth. Arthur must have dropped to the floor after shot, as a large pool of blood was found in the kitchen under his cap. When the blood was being washed up the bullet was found on the floor where he had spit it out. He later recovered enough to wander about the yard until found by his parents.
Mrs. Wm Luehr of Sheboygan Falls, sister of the young man, was sent for. Owing to her being out of town she did not reach here until today (Wednesday morning).
