F. M. Peugh is Victim of Suicide
That death resulted from a self inflicted gunshot wound, the act caused by a fit of despondency, was the verdict Tuesday of a jury impaneled by Coroner Sifton to hold an inquest over the body of F. M. Peugh, prominent East Side orchardist who was found mortally wounded Sunday afternoon at his home.
Mr. Peugh was found in a dying condition on a bed, a 22-calibre, high-powered rifle bullet having ploughed from the temple through his brain. Authentic reports among friends are that Mr. and Mrs. Peugh have had recent domestic trouble.
Sunday Mr. and Mrs. Peugh were visiting the home of the latter's mother, Mrs. Thomas, in the city. Mr. Peugh departed for the ranch about 10 p. m. Mrs. Peugh and brothers went to the ranch shortly after noon. Mr. Peugh was found lying, fully dressed on a bed, the rifle by his side. He was rushed to the Cottage hospital, death occurring in the late afternoon.
Funeral services were held yesterday afternoon at the Anderson chapel, interment following at Idlewilde cemetery. Rev. J. B. Lister officiated.
