----------
Was Zealous Church Worker
----------
          Miss Bessie McBride, one of the city’s most prominent young women, died yesterday afternoon about 3:30 o’clock at her home, 304 Walker street, following an illness of about a month.  Miss McBride suffered from an attack of heart trouble, the heart being so weakened that the blood went to the brain.  Her death had been expected for several days as her condition had been the most critical.
          Miss McBride was the youngest daughter of the late  George W. McBride.  She was born April 23, 1891.  She is survived by four sisters and two brothers.  They are  Daisy,  Addie,  Mae  and  Sheila,  Emmett McBride, who has been employed at Newport News, Virginia and  George W. McBride  of Hampton, Virginia.  Both brothers were summoned home.  Emmett arriving last night and George today.  They were here but a few weeks ago having been summoned to their sister’s bedside when she first became ill.
          The life of Bessie McBride, which an all wise Father has seen fit to gather in its flowering was one about which many words of praise might be written.  Her sweet personality and happy smile are gone but they will be remembered always by those who new her.  Her life was spent in loving service for others.  In the First Christian Church she was a tireless worker in the Sunday school and in the young peoples’ organizations.  She taught a class of little folks in the primary department and was never so happy as when she could be bringing pleasure to a little child.
          Her funeral will be conducted at the late home on Monday afternoon at two o’clock, Rev. W. E. Carroll officiating.  Burial will be made at forest Hill cemetery.  Friends may call this evening and tomorrow afternoon and evening after 2 o’clock.

Jay Donald McBride Died At
Five O’Clock Sunday At Home of Parents
----------
Result Of Injuries Received Saturday
----------
          Jay Donald McBride, two and a half years old, son of City Civil Engineer George J. McBride and wife, of 208 North Vine street, the little lad who was rendered unconscious in a auto accident that occurred Saturday about noon, died at the home of his parents here at five o’clock Sunday evening.  The child never regained consciousness following the accident.
          The child is survived by the parents, one sister,  Pauline, eight years old; a brother  James, four and a half years old; the grandmother,  Mrs. Thomas J. Brown, of Union township; three uncles,  Carey and  Frank Cotton, of Union township, and  H. R. Brown, of Manilla, and two aunts,  Mrs. Joe Hammond, of Waldron, and  Miss Josephine Cotton, of Union township.
          The death of this babe is most pathetic and is only one of the many horrible deaths that occur as the result of auto accidents.  Just before the accident Saturday, the driver, Mr. McBride, was demonstrating to Mr. Rhodes just how slow the car could run.  A farmer at the side of the road asked if that was as fast as the car could run.  To prove that it was not Mr. McBride placed his foot on the accelerator for more speed and thereby lost control.  The grief of the parents over the loss of this babe, who bid fair of becoming a most brilliant child, is inconsolable.
          The funeral services will be held at three o’clock Tuesday afternoon at the home of the parents.  The Rev. H. N. Spear, pastor of the First Baptist Church, will officiate.  Burial will be made in Forest Hill Cemetery.

Col Joseph McBride Passes Away Suddenly
in An Indianapolis Hospital
----------
Was 69 Years of Age
----------
          Joseph McBride, Councilman from the Fifth ward of this city, died in a hospital; at Indianapolis Tuesday evening about five o’clock, having been a patient at that institution since last January.  The sad news of the death came as a great shock to the entire community as it was not thought that his illness, which was a nervous breakdown would result fatally. 
When the telegram was received announcing his death, George McBride, his son, secured the services of  Robert Stewart, a member of the firm of Stewart & Fix, and they went to the city, returning this morning with the body.
          Joseph McBride was born in the county of Down, near Lisbon, Ireland March 3, 1840 and at the time of his death was sixty-nine years, two months and fifteen days old.
          He came to this country on the Pontiac when at the age of nine years.  Mr. McBride lived at Rock Dale near Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where he remained three years after his arrival in this country.  Then he came to Shelbyville, where he took up his permanent residence.
          During the Civil war he served one year in the 16th Indiana Volunteers, and three years in the 11th Infantry.  In November, 1872 he engaged in newspaper work with the late  Scott Ray  and he continued with the paper of which Mr. Ray was at that time owner, until 1902, when he retired.  While engaged on the paper he became acquainted with hundreds of people in all parts of the county and then was better known than “Con” McBride.
          Mr. McBride was a Democrat in politics.  He was elected to the City council in 1887, and had he lived to complete the present term, he would have served twenty years in his official capacity.  One term of two years he did not make the race.  Mr. McBride was also court bailiff for six years.
          Seven years before the war the deceased was employed on the old Knightstown railroad.
          The deceased was a pleasant old gentleman, always having a kind word for all those he would meet.
          He is survived by his son, George, and his widow [Elizabeth].  Three brothers and two sisters also survive him.   The brothers are  George and  John, of this City and  Will of Tipton, and the sisters are  Mrs. Mary Jane Meloy and  Mrs. James [Sarah Ann] Gore.
          The funeral services will be held Friday afternoon at the house, 57 John street, the Rev. O. A. Cook, pastor of the First Baptist Church officiating.  Interment will be in the City cemetery in charge of Stewart & Fix.  The remains may be seen this evening from seven to nine o’clock and tomorrow from two to nine.

DEATH  OF  JOHN  MCBRIDE
----------
          In the death of Mr. John McBride Thursday night, which occurred at the residence of his mother on West Hendricks street, the city loses one of its most praiseworthy young men.  Young Mr. McBride entered the employ of  Messrs. Conrey, Wallar & DePrez  when he was but thirteen years of age, taking a position in the finishing rooms.  By close application he soon became an expert at his trade, and his services were greatly appreciated.
          Every dollar he earned was scrupulously cared for, the greater portion of which went to the support of his mother and the younger children of the family.  For several years past his health was poor, and he was finally forced to leave his employers.  Consumption laid its cold hand upon him, and he finally died from its dreadful effects.  He was a dutiful son, a kind brother and a most congenial friend.
          Deceased was twenty-three years and twenty-two days old.  His funeral occurred at 8 o’clock on Monday morning, and the body was interred at St. Joseph Catholic cemetery.

          Mary J.

She leaves six children among the number being Mr. Joseph McBride of the Shelby Democrat.  The children and other relatives have the sympathy of this entire community in the sorrow and affliction.  It was the dying request of the noble woman that her children should all meet her about the Throne of God and walk with her the bright streets of the Holy City.  The funeral services will be held on Saturday afternoon at 2 o’clock at the Presbyterian church the Rev. T. L. Hughes officiating.  The interment will take place in the City cemetery.
