CHAS. ARTHUR FOUND
DEAD IN CORN FIELD

Succumbed to Heart Disease
While Picking Corn.

Has Been In III Health Since Death
of His Son, Harry, Last Spring.

MARBLE ROCK, IOWA - Nov. 27 The whole community was saddened on Tuesday evening when it was learned that Charles Arthur, living on his farm just south of Marble Rock, had dropped dead in his cornfield while husking corn, about 4:30 o'clock.

Walter Bohl, who was assisting him with another team not far behind Mr. Arthur, noticed the team standing still and went to investigate, finding Mr. Arthur lifeless upon the ground near the wagon. Death was caused by heart disease, from which he has been suffering for some time, especially since the death of his son, Harry Arthur, who was killed when his school bus was struck by a Rock Island train last spring.

Mr. Arthur was born on March 3, 1861, near Pleasant Grove. He was united in marriage to Miss Pearly Clay, November 18, 1888.

He is survived by his widow, one son, Verne, at home, his daughter-in-law and two grand-daughters, besides other relatives.

For several years he was president of the Marble Rock school board and was an ordained deacon in the Baptist church for seventeen years. He held the respect of all who knew him.

Funeral services were held in the Bethel Baptist church here on Thursday afternoon. The sermon was preached by the pastor, Rev. George Foster, assisted by Rev. V. C. Kelford, of Waterloo, a former pastor here. Interment was in the Hillside Cemetery at Marble Rock.
