SUICIDE - On the 1st instant, John S. SIMS, an old and well known citizen of Plumas county, committed suicide at Smith's Bar, by shooting himself through the head with a revolver. The Quincy 'Union' says the deceased formerly lived in Placer county, but was a native of Dalonega, Georgia, from whence he came to this State. He was a member of the Masonic Lodge, at Rich Bar.
