Died. Last Sunday morning, Mr. Murphy, living southwest of town on the Volga. Mr. Murphy was an old veteran of the Mexican war where he faithfully served his country and survived the hardships of war, reaching the age of ninety years, ever in good health, when soon the hovering angels ushered his spirit into heaven.
The remains were laid to rest in the Catholic cemetery at this place on Tuesday. The wife and children have the sympathy of their friends in their great loss.
