The death of Sam Mulhern at 7:30 last night came as a terrible shock to this community. All knew he was not in robust health for some time; but nothing serious was thought of it. He had been suffering some weeks from a fall which he had while working at the furnace, but he had seemed to be about well of that. He seemed really rather better Wednesday evening than usual and ate a fairly hearty supper. Soon after he complained of not feeling well and went upstairs. Seemed to be suffering intense pain about the stomach or heart. Dr. Rogers was called in and at first thought it might be a case of acute indigestion. Gave him some treatment to relieve the pain and went over to the drug store to prepare some medicine, advising Mr. Mulhern to get some sleep if he could. He had not been away but a few moments when the family discovered the sick man gasping for breath and before medical aid could be procured the end had come. Dr. Rogers and Hubbard pronounced the trouble neuralgia of the heart.

Samuel B. Mulhern was born at Bethany, W. Va., April 13, 1849. Came to Iowa when fifteen years of age with his father's family. September 13, 1870, he was married to Miss Margarget E. Harmon. She with the four children born to them survive. The children are Albert and Anna, the two oldest, who live at home, Louis, who is in Galesbug and William, who is married and is connected with his father in the business. Besides these, the deceased leaves four brothers and one sister, Mrs. Anna Wooley, of near Washington, to mourn his death. The brothers are Dr. F. W., of Greenefield, John and James, of Nevada, Missouri and Albert E., of near Crawfordsville. One brother, Russell, has not been heard of in many years. The funeral occurs at the home, tomorrow afternoon, at 2 o'clock, conducted by Rev. Frank R. LeFever.
