Solomon Dewey committed suicide at Lake Bomoseen last Wednesday. He had been suffering for some time from a boil and for a day or two had been acting strangely. He went to the barn about 11 o'clock and hanged himself to a beam, where he was found by his wife an hour later. He leaves a wife and three daughters.
