TAKES HIS OWN LIFE Al Paulsen Commits Suicide

The community was shocked on Sunday evening when it was learned that Alvin (sic)Paulsen, a young man who resides a quarter of a mile north of the village of Gravesville, had taken his own life by shooting himself with a revolver. There was no reason for the rash act, which has cast a gloom over that family and relatives of the deceased. Sunday, in company with other relatives, the young man spent the afternoon at the home of his uncle, Julius Paulsen. At five o'clock, after eating supper, the company broke up and young Paulsen and his brother returned home and did the chores. He then left the barn and went to the house, and shortly afterward the report of a revolver was heard. On investigation, the young man was found in his room in the second story, dead, with a wound on the right side of his head. He has not been in robust health for some time, and it is thought that this worked on hind and in a fit of melancholy he destroyed his life. His home was one of the best in this section, surrounded by every comfort that he could desire, with an indulgent father whose every thought was for the interest and welfare of his family.
Alvin Paulsen was the eldest son of Herman Paulsen. He was born in Charlestown, on May 25, 1877, and has resided there since. He was a quiet, unassuming young man, and well liked by those who knew him.
The funeral took place on Thursday afternoon and was largely attended.
