He obtained a good education in this common schools of this county.  He was a bright student, leading in all his school work.  Upon reaching the required age he obtained a teacher's certificate.  He received the highest grade in the county at that time.  He taught one term and engaged in teaching another, but failing health forced him to resign and travel in the west hoping to get well, but that proved impossible.

Mr. Daily possessed many qualities which make a noble manhood.  He was kind, honest, upright, courteous and considerate under all circumstances and, although, suffering great pain during his last illness, he was cheerful and kept in mind the welfare and comfort of those around him.  A short time before his death he told his mother that all was well with him and that he was ready to go.  He had been sick seven years and died of consumption.

Although his life was short, it was full and complete.

He leaves to mourn his departure a mother, two brothers, a step-father and step-daughters together with a host of other relatives and friends.

Funeral services were held at the home on Hancock street, Thursday, September 21, at 11:30 a.m., being conducted by Rev. J. C. Crow, pastor of the Christian Church.  After the services at the home the remains were taken to Garrison cemetery, fourteen miles north of McLeansboro, where short services were held in order that a number of friends who had gathered there might view the remains.
