|GEORGE FREEMYER HANGS HIMSELF NEAR HAXTUN
George FREEMYER, longtime Phillips county resident hanged himself at his home near Haxtun Tuesday morning. Despondency over financial troubles was the cause for his rash act.
Mr. Freemyer had made arrangements Monday with a Haxtun bank to carry him over until after harvest in his farming operations. He had been a prosperous farmer until the time of depression, and was financially comfortable until 1920. He was hit hard by the stringent times, and remarked to his wife Monday night, after he returned from Haxtun, that his debts were getting the best of him. Little was thought of the remark at the time, however.
Early Tuesday morning, while the boys were doing the chores, he went out to an out house, and secured a small piece of rope. There he tied the rope around a rafter, put the noose around his neck, and stepped off a ledge.
He was discovered hanging but a few minutes later, but he was dead when found.
Mr. Freemyer was a man of about 60 years of age. He had always been of a happy disposition, and his many friends were greatly shocked to hear of his tragic death. He was well known all over Phillips county.
