      Perth Courier, Nov. 20, 1885
      On Saturday morning a painful sensation was created in Smith’s Falls that Mrs. Adam Houliston had committed suicide. On making inquiries it transpired that during the night she aroused her husband who is a lockmaster to go and look through a lock which had just whistled. After attending to the locks Mr. Houliston went and lay down on the sofa. After the lapse of some time he began to wonder why his wife had not called him she being of delicate health and requiring a good deal of attention. Springing up he entered the bedroom and was still more surprised at finding it vacant, particularly as Mrs. Houliston had not been out of the house in weeks. He traced her footsteps to the river and finding her shawl on the bank surmised the worst. A short search in the grey dawn found her lying face down in about two feet depth of water. It is thought that her sufferings and the reaction caused by giving up morphine as a medicine induced depression of spirits resulting in temporary insanity. Besides her husband she leaves a married daughter and a son ten years of age. The family was in very comfortable circumstances.
