A Sudden Death
One of the saddest events it has been the Republican’s duty to chronicle, is the sudden death of Mrs. Josie Walling, of this city. She had been in general good health up to a short time previous to her taking off, when she complained of not feeling well. Tuesday she was at home alone at her residence near the public school building; Mr. Walling left her at 2:15 and at 3:30 o’clock her little daughter returning from school found her prostate upon the floor of her bedroom and as she could not arouse her ran over to their neighbor, Mrs. James and summoned her. When assistance arrived there was no help for her, and all indications are of heart failure. Mr. Walling has the sympathy of the community in this sad bereavement.
