OLD ADVERTISER PRESSMAN DIES AT PAUMALU HOME

Danforth Joy Coonradt, for many years pressman on The Advertiser, died at his home at Paumalu, Koolauloa, at four o'clock yesterday afternoon. The funeral, the date for which has not been set, will be held under the joint auspices of the Knights of Pythias and the Eagles, of which orders he had been a member. He leaves a wife and five small children, together with a mother. Mr. Coonradt was thirty-five years old.

During his several years with The Advertiser, Mr. Coonradt made himself a strong favorite among the members of The Advertiser staff and corps of workers through his neverfailing good temper, his pride in his work and his faithfulness to his paper. He left The Advertiser about a year ago because of his failing health, tuberculosis having marked him down as a victim. He took up farming at Paumalu, in the hope that work in the open air would restore his health and up to within a short time ago he spoke with confidence of the time when he would be able to resume his regular occupation as pressman.

The news of his death yesterday came as a shock to his former fellow employes in The Advertising office, although the hope that he would ever be back on "the night shift" had been given up.
