Sudden Death

From J.S. Johnson, we learn that Mr. John R. Foster, an old and respected citizen living in the south-west part of the county, died very suddenly Sunday evening.

He did his chores in the evening and went to bed about 8:30. At 10:30 he got up and put a stick of wood in the stove and went back to bed and in one minute he was dead. His wife heard him make some noise in his throat as if he was struggling to get his breath and went to him and raised his head to find him dead. He was 65 or 70 years of age. There was no one in the house but his wife and daughter, the latter a young woman.

He was a member of the Masonic fraternity, having his membership at Chula.

Undertaker Gipson went down today to embalm the body and take charge of the funeral. The date of the funeral will not be fixed until they hear from a son in Oklahoma. He will be buried with Masonic honor at the Tolle Cemetery.
