Harrison Man Dies Near Here
J. E. Murphy of Harrison, age about 45 years, died at the home of his
father-in-law, J. H. Smith, five miles north of here, last Tuesday night at
11 o'clock. The body was forwarded to Harrison Wednesday, where burial took
place under direction of members of the Order of Railroad Telegraphers and
other railroad brotherhoods of that city.
Deceased for some time past had been a sufferer from Bright's disease and
went to Batesville a few days ago seeking relief, but his condition showed
no improvement and he and his wife returned here last week.
Mr Murphy is a former employee of the M. & N. A. Ry., being employed at
Harrison as a telegraph operator. He went out on strike with the other
employees of the road when the general strike was ordered on the road more
than a year ago. He was married some four or five weeks ago to Mrs Ruth
Wagner of near here who survives.
