JAMES
From Wyaconda News, Nov. 20.
Mr. S. B. James died very suddenly at his home in this city last Tuesday evening at 6:30 from heart failure, after only a few hours ailment, at the age of 45 years.
For the past few days he had been suffering from a very sore hand and had not been able to do much work in his harness shop. Last Monday he was attacked by indigestion and was confined to his room all day Tuesday. At about 4:00 p.m. Tuesday his condition became alarming and a physician was summoned. The symptoms denoted serious heart trouble and he continued to grow worse until death came as a relief.
Mr. James (Baxter, as he was familiarly known). has lived in this city for nearly 20 years. It was here he married Miss Myrtle Sawyer daughter of Mr. J. B. Sawyer, Sr. He has been in the harness and repair business here for several years. He is the only son of Mr. S. E. James, and a brother of Mrs. Wm. Turner, of Hunnewell, Mo., Mrs. Dr. Shacklett, of Rutledge, and Mrs. Jas. Cruse, of Iowa. He was a member of the Wyaconda Christian church. He was also a member of the Brotherhood of American Yoeman and carried a one thousand dollar life insurance policy in that order.
His sudden death has cast a shadow of gloom over the entire city and country. His kind and genial disposition made him scores of friends who sadly mourn his death. He leaves a wife and one daughter and many relatives and friends who have the sympathy of all in this sad bereavement.
