Emma Woolf Had Vial in One Hand
and Revolver in Other.

Emma Woolf, 206 College avenue, Rosedale, committed suicide early yesterday morning by drinking carbolic acid. When found by her husband, Benjamin Woolf, when he returned from work in the Frisco yards at 6:30 o'clock last night, she was lying on the floor with a small vial in her right hand and whthin easy reach of her left lay a loaded 32-caliber revolver. She had evidently contemplated using the latter in case the poison failed to do its work.

Woolf noticed Coroner J. A. Davis, of Wyandotte county, who ordered the body to the Eylar undertaking rooms, Fifteenth and Main streets. Coroner Davis said last night that the body had probably lain since early morning.
