          Elisha M. Arnold  died at his home seven miles east of town in Liberty township, at 7:20 p.m., Monday, October 21st, of heart trouble.  He was born in Campbell county, Kentucky in 1810, and at the time of death was eighty-five years old.  He came to Shelby county in 1836, and settled on the farm on which he died.  He was married to  Margaret Powell  in 1837, who died in 1862.  To them were born ten children, nine of whom are living, five sons and four daughters.  Perhaps there was not a better known man in the eastern part of Shelby county than the deceased, nor one who was more highly esteemed.  He was a valued friend of this paper and its publisher.  Elisha M. Arnold passed away full of years and of honors.  He was a fine type of the old style gentleman, courtesy and kindness-the kind of a grand old man who, like our grand old forest trees, the world is losing them without growing like ones to take their places.  Funeral services were held at the late residence at two o'clock p.m., Wednesday, Rev. John Clouds officiating.  Interment in the Powell graveyard.  Cummins & Edwards had charge of the remains.
