Mrs. Dow Landis, 35, ended her own life by hanging herself in a tool shop at their farm home, four and a half miles northeast of Akron, Thursday morning. The body was found by her husband at 11 a.m. Ill health was believed to have caused the well-known Kosciusko county woman to commit suicide. The survivors are her husband, an adopted daughter Miss Turrell Landis and four brothers, Ike and William Thompson, of Rochester, and John and Jess Thompson, of near Akron. The coroner of Kosciusko county was called to the Landis farm but up until press time today he had not announced his verdict. Funeral arrangements will be announced in Friday's issue of The News-Sentinel.

Funeral services for Mrs. Dow Landis, aged 39, who committed suicide Thursday morning by hanging herself in the tool shed at her husband's farm north of Akron, will be held at 2 o'clock Sunday afternoon. The last rites will be held from the Log Bethel church northeast of Akron with the Rev. D. L. Slaybaugh of Akron, officiating. Burial will be made in the Odd Fellows cemetery at the west edge of Akron. Mrs. Landis is thought to have committed suicide due to despondency over ill health. Dr. James Laird, North Webster, Kosciusko county coroner, released the body to an Akron undertaker. A formal inquest will be held at Warsaw, Monday. In the obituary which was carried in The News-Sentinel Thursday the names of two of Mrs. Landis' near relatives were omitted through an error. Those whose names were cut out were a brother, Abner Thompson, Huntington and a sister, Mrs. Maude Holloway, of this city.
