Lennie Henson, a 17 year old son of Wm. Henson, a merchant at Golden, shot and killed himself late Tuesday evening of last week at his father's home about one-half mile northeast of Golden. The sad incident occurred in the yard of the Henson home. The family's attention was called to the scene by hearing a discharge from a shot gun. Death was instantaneous, the shot taking its effect in the breast. Despondency is believed to have been the cause for the young man to take his life. We are informed that he left two notes hanging to a fence near his body. One of the notes was addressed to a girl of that vicinity with whom he was in love and the other was addressed to his father. We are not informed as to the contents of the notes. Funeral services were held Wednesday in charge of Squire James of Viola and interment was made at the Vina cemetery.
