HANGS HIMSELF IN COOLER OF BARROOM - Albion Business Man Takes His Life

Albion, June 28 - Stephen Daniels conducting a grocery and saloon at No. 21 Moore Street, was found dead about 2 o'clock this afternoon, having died by suicide.

Shortly before Mr. Daniels's rash act, he asked his daughter Kate to watch the store while he went into the yard back of his store. About fifteen minutes later, when he had not been seen to return, his daughter Kate entered the barroom, and found his lifeless body hanging in the large cooler, suspended at the end of a harness rein. Dr. Alfred Jackson was summoned, but life was extinct. Coroner Frank Lattin was notified and, after viewing the remains, pronounced it a case of suicide. No reason can be assigned for the act except that Mr. Daniels has been a great sufferer from rheumatism for a long time.

Mr. Daniels was 57 years old, having been born in Germany December 25, 1953. He was a soldier in the German Army and came to Albion thirty-three years ago. He leaves his wife, two daughters, Mrs. Rose Wright and Miss Kate Daniels, both of this village, and four sons, John and James of this village; Adam Daniels who is employed by the New York Central Railway Company in Rochester, and Frank Daniels of Detroit, Michigan.
