Mr. Jon. H. Walker, Sr., died very suddenly near here Thursday evening. He had been complaining a little the day before, but nothing serious was thought of it. His wife was over at a neighbors at the time he died, and no one was at the house. Mrs. Walker was not absent long, but when she returned her husband was lying on the bed dead. He was a good citizen and his death is deeply regretted by the whole community. He was 70 years old. He was buried in the Hargis graveyard Friday evening. Funeral services were conducted at the grave by Rev. Mr. White. Our people sympathize deeply with the bereaved wife and sons.
