Landlord Daniel Davies commits suicide with strychnine - see att.
"Death. On Thursday morning, June 15th, a painful sensation was caused throughout this locality by the tragic death of Mr. Daniel Davies, landlord of the Penpompren Inn. The deceased had attended the annual Whitsun fair at Lampeter on the preceding day and nothing unusual in his demeanour had been observed. Early on Thursday morning, he was found in an outbuilding in great agony and medical aid was at once summoned. He was found to be suffering from the effects of poison and died soon afterwards. An inquest on the body was held later when a verdict of Suicide during temporary insanity was returned. On Saturday, his remains were interred at the Llanwenog Churchyard, the Rev. J. Morris, vicar, officiating. The funeral was largely attended and great sympathy is felt with the widow and children in their sad bereavement. " CN 23 June 1905
