WILLIAMS   BLOCK.      -   - ' TELEPHONE  6-7  to the authorities in finding young  Von Taush. Neither of us believed  at the time that he had eonwnitied .  suicide, and we are not fully reconciled to that idea even now, although his continued absence, gives a  grave aspect   to   the case.  "When      he   left   Menominee,   Von  Taush left  a note for M. S.  Harmon  ,in  oll'icer  of  t-he  compaiiv   by  which  he  was employed,  saying that       bis  health   would   no   longer   permit      of  his   attending   folds   work.     It   was  c-n duly   I  that  tic letter  was written to Mrs, Bush, iiiit  owing to some  delay she  did not receive it until Jur  ly  2lltb.   At   the same   time   this letter -wins  written,   Von  Taush      also  wrote a similar letter to Henry Tied  man,   manager  of  the  electric    company.    This   letter,   however,  stated  that,  the  altercation   whkh   was 'the  cause  of-his'strange  duel" liia'd"tab>n  place  some""two  years' previously."'  Mr. Bush stated that, even now, after all efforts at locatingi Von Taush  have failed, he believes hiin alive,  and attributes the strange hclions of'  the past months to the effects .pf the  fever on the young man's brain and  to 'i desire to get away from ��������� any  connection with his relatives.
