|Death: ||Jul. 16, 1896|
From the Edwardsville Intelligencer, Edwardsville, Madison County, Illinois, Friday, July 17, 1896, page 1:
Frank Arnost, a resident of Glen Carbon, was found in the timber this side of Glen Carbon, yesterday morning at six o'clock, by Irwin E. Little, with two bullet holes in his head. By his side was a 32-calibre revolver with two chambers empty, telling plainly a story of suicide. The almost lifeless body was taken to this home by Mr. Little, assisted by J.M. Primas. Dr. Oliver was summoned but the victim was beyond earthly aid. He died in the afternoon at half past two. The funeral took place from his late residence at two o'clock this afternoon and was under the auspices of St. John's Nepomuck society. The remains were interred in the Bohemian cemetery.
Mr. Arnost, up to a few months ago, conducted a saloon in Glen Carbon, and since that time has been employed in the repair department of the St. Louis & Northern railway. He was about 45 years of age, and leaves a wife and five children. Domestic troubles are said to have been the cause for the rash act.
