SHELBYVILLE, Ind., Jan. 17. -- The kind hearted and highly respected widow of Albert McCorkle died this morning. She died of a broken heart -- grief for the loss of her husband. The trying hour, mixed with so much woe, sadness and agony, was more than her generous heart could stand. The shock was terrible; it affected both her mind and body, and death followed. She was but thirty-two years of age, and previous to the death of her husband enjoyed excellent health. One little girl alone is left, "Little Jessie," aged three years. The funeral will take place Wednesday at 2 p.m.
