DROWNED HIMSELF - JOHN MCCRANDALL, AN OLD RESIDENT OF BILLINGS DISAPPEARS AND BODY IS NOT FOUND - SUPPOSED WATERY GRAVE


  John McCrandell, living at Gerrish dam in Billings, went after a pail of water Friday evening the 20th, and not returning his wife and sister went to search for him. Not finding him they alarmed the neighbors and search was made all that night and part of the next day without avail. Sunday they grappled for his body in the river but without success.

  He had made threats several times that he would drown himself, and lately when neighbors called on him he bid, them goodby, saying that he would never see them again. He was an invalid several years preceding his supposed death. He leaves a wife and eight children.
