SOLOMON, Jim A. - J.A. Solomon was found dead in his buggy yesterday morning about 9:30 o'clock. Mr. Solomon had been out to his farm south of town as was his custom and it is supposed that he died after getting in his buggy and starting for home. Some boys who were working the field east of the Tom Caudle place noticed that when the mule passed them Mr. Solomon had slipped down in the seat of the buggy, apparently asleep. Fearing that the animal might possibly run away and injure Mr. Solomon they went out to the road and stopped him and found that Mr. Solomon was dead. The body was still warm, showing that death had resulted only a short time before. He was apparently in his usual health and death was doubtless the result of heart disease. The body was brought on to town and taken to his home near the high school building where it will be prepared for burial. At the time of going to press no announcements have been made as to the funeral arrangements. Uncle Jim Solomon was one of the very best citizens of this country. For many years he resided on a farm a short distance south of town but after the death of his wife some time ago he and his daughter, Miss Amanda, moved into town to make their home, there being just the two of them in the family. Besides his daughter, Miss Amanda, deceased is survived by two other daughters and three sons, all of whom are married and living in different sections of the country. Mr. Solomon stood high in the estimation of all who knew him, being honest and upright in all his dealings, and there is universal regret at his untimely death.
