Caledonia, Ont., May 19 --
John Acker of Port Dover, who had been boarding here at the Campbell
House for the last six weeks, shot himself in the head about six
o'clock last evening, and died early this morning.
The cause of the suicide is
unknown. It is said that he intimated on previous occasion that he
would take his own life.
His wife came from Port
Dover on the 13th and stayed until the 14th. She wanted him to go
home. His children also
made trips on the same errand, but he said he was tired of Port
Dover. He told his wife, however, that he would go home on Saturday
