Larson, Bernard Tues 2 Mar 1926 Fort William Daily Times Journal
Finmark, Ont. - Bernard Larson, a bright little tot of three years of age is dead, his father, John Larson, a farmer residing near hear, is painfully cut and burned as a result of a heroic attempt to rescue the child and the Larson home, with all contents, is a total loss following a fire which broke out yesterday. The tragedy is one of the most pathetic in the history of the locality. Not only have the Larsons been bereft of their child but they have lost all their personal belongings and no insurance was carried. There was a considerable sum of money in the home and this was also lost. All that the family has left are the clothes they were wearing at the time of the blaze. The neighborhood is keenly sympathetic and already an organized effort is being made to raise funds to help the Larsons. It appears that Mrs. Larson left her young son in the house alone for a few moments while she went to the stable to look after the cattle. Mr. Larson had just driven away from the home with the two elder boys. When a short distance away in the direction of Finmark the father looked back and saw smoke pouring from the house. He hurried back and smashed his way through the window. The smoke in the building was so thick it was impossible for him to see and the heat was terrfic. The father groped around in the hope of finding the boy but was unsuccessful. He persisted until almost suffocated and staggered out of the burning building more dead than alive. The husband was then forced to stand with his almost demented wife and watch the flames, knowing that they were consuming their child. The family has lived on the Dawson Road for the past eight years, is well known and greatly appreciated.

Mrs. Laasinen, aged thirty-five years, Finlander, wife of a farmer living at Kivikoski, six miles out on Dawson Road past the Arthur farm, committed suicide on Tuesday afternoon by shooting herself in the abdomen with a high-power rifle. The rifle was found tied with a cord to the door, for another piece of rope was attached to the trigger. She must have slammed the door, thus releasing the trigger of the rifle, which she had pointed towards her. When found lying on the ground she was dead, but there was a pillow under her head, and the authorities think that after the shooting she managed to crawl away and get a pillow which she placed under her head and then died. She had no children. Her husband was away from home when the tragedy occurred, being on a visit to Port Arthur. When he returned he found his wife's body lying in the house.
