It has been learned that Mrs. B. Erdman (Erdmann), who lived on Indian  Creek, northeast of Lusk, and who had been sick for some time, committed suicide last week by taking a dose of concentrated lye. She also gave her child a dose of kerosene with the supposition that it would end the little one's life as well, but it was saved.

Note: Mrs. Erdmann was interred in the Pleasant Ridge Pioneer Cemetery in Niobrara County, Wyoming. Photo courtesy of Find A Grave.
