Saint-Antoine-sur-Richelieu, Québec, Canada - 1892 - A prominent farmer of St. Antoine, Que., named Damose, has invented a novel and original method of suicide.


Becoming suddenly insane, he tied the end of a rope around a tree, and fastened the other end to his feet. Making a noose of another rope, he placed it around his neck, and fastened it to a whiffle? tree to which a team of horses was attached. He started the horses, and his head was torn from the body.
