A.A. Barber Suicides
Shot Himself Through Heart in Presence of Daughter

Albert Barber committed suicide at his home a few miles north of Newark
So far as known there was not the slightest cause for the rash act. He
was in the house conversing with his family seemingly as cheerfully as
could be. Walking through another room, he picked up a shotgun. His
little daughter asked him what he was going to do with the gun. He
walked out on the porch, the little girl following him. His only answer
was, "Watch and I'll show you." Immediately cocking the gun he hung the
trigger on a nail in one of the porch posts, and stepping up with his
breast immediately at the muzzle of the gun, pulled the trigger. He
fell mortally wounded and died almost instantly.
He made an attempt to commit suicide a short time ago by taking
morphine, but told what he had done and Dr. A. L. McClard was summoned
in time to save his life. After recovering he expressed his regrets
over the unfortunate occurrence and nothing more was thought of it.
He was the youngest son of Uncle Zibe Barber, one of the oldest
residents of this section, and was a good citizen. He leaves a wife and
four children. The remains were buried Friday at the Edwards graveyard.
