Benton County Democrat
Thursday, October 5, 1899

SMITH, Joe - Joe Smith, a young man about 17 years of age, committed suicide by hanging himself last Sunday morning at his father's home on Sugar Creek, just below the Steeley mill. It is supposed he stood on a chair and fastened the rope end of a halter to a joist in the front room of the house. When found the body was still warm and his toes were touching the floor, his knees being drawn up in such a manner as to show that he was determined to die, and hanging thus he slowly choked to death. No motive can be assigned for the rash deed.
