Suicide at Montpelier
Hiram S. Smith, a veteran truckman of Montpelier, committed suicide by hanging Tuesday afternoon. He had been in poor health for some time, and for a few days had been very despondent. About the middle of the afternoon he went to his barn and was not seen again until 5:30 o'clock, when his son, Henry, who works in the National Life Insurance Co.'s office, found him hanging from a rafter above the upper floor of the barn. His son cut down the body and went immediately for assistance and an examination led to the belief that he had been dead for some time. Mr. Smith was in Co. B, 10th Vt. Vols., and reached the rank of sergeant. Immediately after the war he went into the trucking business there and has followed this occupation ever since. He was highly respected as a business man and citizen. He leaves a wife and two sons.
