Savannah, MO. -- David Moran, a farmer who resided about eight miles northeast of this city, committed suicide this morning by cutting his throat with a razor. He sold his farm a few weeks ago and has been very despondent, as he since discovered that he could have sold at a better price.
He had been confined to his house by sickness since Tuesday last, and this morning about 1 o'clock he arose from is bed, took a razor from the clock, ran out into the yard and committed the deed before any of the family got to him.
He was forty years old and leaves a widow and two small children.

We miss thy kind and willing hand,
Thy fond and earnest care,
Our home is dark without thee, Dave
We miss thee everywhere
