ALFRED N. WALKER PASSES AWAY, WAS PIONEER RESIDENT
Alfred N. WALKER, 78, a pioneer resident of Carroll county, passed away at his home on Biddy's Hill, this city, last Monday night at nine o'clock after a long illness. Six weeks ago he suffered a stroke of paralysis that left him speechless and since that time he had been in a stupor. At the last blood poisoning developed and this, together with paralysis, is given as the cause of death. The funeral services were held at the home Wednesday morning at ten o'clock, conducted by Rev. W. T. Lytle, pastor of the First Brethren church. Interment was made in the Maple Lawn cemetery.
