Prominent Business Man Died
At Home on West Broad- way Today.
(From Wednesday's Daily.)
          Omer Doran,  one of Shelbyville's widely known business men, died of a complication of diseases at 10:50 o'clock this morning at his home, 168 west Broadway.  Had he lived till the tenth of this month he would have been forty-seven years old.  Mr. Loran's death was not unexpected, as he had been in failing health for more than a year and had been unable to leave his bed for five months.  He returned to his home here on May 21, after having spent four months at Orlando, Fla., and after arrival here there was never a time that his death was not momentarily expected.
          Mr. Dorna was a son of the late  Redding and  Jane Doran  and was born in Jackson township, Shelby county.  For two years he was a resident of Illinois, being taken to that state by his parents when he was three years old.  They came to this city from Illinois in 1871 and Shelbyville had been Mr. Doran's home ever since.  While he was in Florida he was a guest at the home of his sister,  Mrs. Elijah Hand,  and she started here today for the funeral.  Mr. Doran had been in the drug business here for some time.  The late  Neal Means  was associated with him in business for a time and recently the store had been managed by  Harry Fleming,  who had become his partner by purchasing the interest of Mr. Means in the store.  Mr. Doran had many firends and all of them will be saddened by his untimely death.
          About fiftenn years ago he married  Miss Barbara Coers,  who survives him.  Their married life was happy and the union was blessed with the birth of one child, a daughter,  Miss Carla,  fourteen years old, who also survives.  Mrs. Charles Cheney,  of this city, is a sister of the deceased.  He leaves many other relatives in Shelby and Johnson counties.
          Fraternally Mr. Doran was a member of the Red Men, the Eagles and the F.O.C.P., and all of these organizations will take part in the burial ceremonies.
          The funeral will be held at the house at 2:30 o'clock Saturday afternoon the Rev. Earl R. North officiating, and the interment will be made in Forest Hill cemetery in charge of Stewart & Fix.
