Died of Pneumonia

After Creating a Sensation by Running Through the Streets While Delirious.

Mr. Marion Smith, who occupied a small house of Mr. Starling Roberts on Church Street, died Sunday, of pneumonia. He was stricken something over a week ago, and the malady took a violent turn and threw him into fits of delirium. While in one of these, and in an unguarded moment, he arose from his bed, hastily threw his clothes on and ran through several of the streets. He saw a country wagon leaving town, and hailing the driver, told him he must get out of town immediately. The driver let him in the wagon, and as Smith directed, put whip to the team. Smith’s friends soon overtook him and carried him back to his home. Mr. Smith leaves a wife and two children. He was formerly a guard of county convicts.
