Cook, Adolph

Schleswig Leader, May 20, 1915

The Sutherlin, Oregon Sun has the following to say concerning the sudden death of Adolph Cook, a former resident of Schleswig. Mr. Cook formerly conducted a wagon shop here and was a well liked man.

Despondent over the fact that he had but a short time to live, owing to an incurable cancer in the roof of his mouth, Adolph Cook, one of the best known citizens of Sutherlin and a man universally esteemed, swallowed a dose of strychnine about 8 o'clock Monday morning May 10, and died from its effect about an hour later.

About a year ago Mr. Cook cracked a nut in his mouth and a piece of shell caused a slight abrasion of the skin on the roof near his palate. He was an inveterate smoker and this is thought to have aggravated the wound until a specie of cancer developed. Not until a few weeks ago did he consult a physician, when it was found that owing to the location of the cancer and the growth it had made it would be an impossibility to do anything in the way of permanent relief. Mr. Cook was informed of the seriousness of the case, and while temporary relief was given, he apparently lost all interest in his surroundings and began to brood over the fact that his life was drawing rapidly to a close.

Adolph Cook was born in Germany on July 9th 1854 and was therefore 60 years 10 months and 1 day old at the time of his death. He came to America when 25 years old and located at Niles, Mich. From there he went to Manning, Iowa, and later to Schleswig. At the latter place he married Mrs. Mary Emmeline in 1903.

Mrs. Cook, who accompanied the body to Clinton, Ia., will go on to Chicago where she will spend the summer with her daughter.
