MAN  FELL  DEAD  WHILE  WORKING
----------
William Huitt [sic] Died While working On a Trench
At The Waldron Fish Pond Early This Morning
----------
HEART  FAILURE  THE  CAUSE
----------
Had Suffered With Neuralgia For Several Days
And It Is Believed This Affected His Heart
----------
          William Huitt[sic]  residing one mile southeast of Waldron, fell dead this morning about nine o'clock while working in a trench on the  Heck  farm near Waldron.  The man was dead when picked up.  Physicians who examined the body report that death was caused by heart failure.
          Mr. Huitt and  Harry Moody  were working together on the trench, Huitt being behind Moody.  The men had been talking and Mr. Huitt complained to his companion of severe neuralgic pains but had not thought of any serious consequences.  The men had gone on with their work, but after several minutes of silence, Mr. Moody looked around and found Mr. Huitt lying on the ground and breathing with great difficulty.  Before he could be taken to the house he died.  Huitt had been an employee at the Waldron fish ponds for the past twenty-five years and during that time had won the esteem and trust of his employers.
          Besides his wife, he leaves a step-daughter, Mrs. Alex Nicely  of this city; a step-son, H. White, a traveling salesman; two daughters, Mrs. William Hurst, of near Burney, and  Mrs. Ethel Perkins, of Rush county; one son, Tildon Huitt, of near Middletown and three brothers, Harve, northwest of this city, Lon, of Decatur county, and  Martin, who stays at the county farm.
          At the time of his death Mr. Huitt was sixty-two years of age.  The funeral arrangements will be announced later by Stewart & Fix, who are in charge.
