Demented Man a Suicide
Last Friday afternoon Deputy Coroner Laying brought to the morgue the body of B. BIERDORF, who was discovered by W. BAMMANN, hanging from a tree across the road from the residence of E.W. SMITH near Holy Cross Cemetery. The body was still warm when found. The deceased had tied a bailing rope to a small limb of the tree and then slid off. When the body was examined at the morgue, nearly $400 was found nearly tucked away in his pocket. The deceased was evidently demented, as a letter found on the body would indicate this. It was written at San Francisco December 15, and addressed to a brother in Los Angeles. It was barely legible and in a rambling manner the writer spoke of being hounded. The letter contained a money order for $100 to be divided among his brothers and sisters. Deceased was a structural iron worker and a member of the San Francisco Building Trades Council. He was about 45 years of age. – Times Gazette.

Accepts Responsible Position
Mrs. C.L. McCRACKEN, for the past three years in charge of the offices of Dr. J.L. ROSS of this city, has been appointed matron of the Red Cross Hospital at San Mateo and will begin her new duties on the first of the month. The new hospital building was erected by Mrs. Whitelaw REID to the memory of her mother, Mrs. D.O. MILLS, and her husband the late Whitelaw Reid. It is estimated that the building will cost upwards of $200,000. It will be ready for the reception of patients on January 10. The directors of the institution are composed of the wealth ladies of San Mateo. They certainly made a wise and splendid selection in appointing Mrs. McCRACKEN as matron. She has had three years of this king of work and is well equipped in every way to assume the large burdens the position will impose. Mrs. McCRACKEN’s son, Charles, who is a clerk in the First National Bank, will remain in Redwood City. Mrs. McCRACKEN is to be congratulated upon her good fortune in securing the coveted prize. – Times Gazette.
