               Steuben County Farmer Takes Own Life
 "Clark Wheaton, 61, well known Pleasant township farmer and gravel
operator, took his own life with a shotgun at his farm home four miles west
of Angola Wednesday evening.
 Mrs. Pearl Wheaton, his wife, was seated on the front porch of the home
when she heard the shot. She rushed into the home and found her husband in
the kitchen with the gun beside him. Two neighbors, Will Sanders and Kenneth
Wells, were called and they administered first aid treatment until the Weicht
ambulance could be summoned to take the injured man to the Cameron Hospital.
Wheaton died at 7:15 Wednesday night, a short time after he had been admitted
to the hospital. Hospital attendants said the full charge struck in the left
arm and severed arteries. He died from loss of blood. Apparently Wheaton had
aimed the gun at his chest but it had slipped as it was discharged.
 Coroner Lester L. Eberhart issued a verdict of suicide. Surviving is the
widow, Pearl, a brother, George, living in California, four sisters, Osha N.
Warner, of Coldwater, May Landis, of Fremont, Emma Hess, of Elkhart, Dolly
Lonsbury, of Orland, and a niece, Irene Harp, of Erwardsberg, Mich., who was
reared in the Wheaton home.
 Funeral services were held at the Weicht Funeral Home Sunday afternoon at
two o'clock, conducted by Elder J.O. Rose, and burial will be in Circle Hill
