Obituary

ORWELL MAN DROPS DEAD.

Ira Morse Was on His Way to Rutland to Testify in County Court Case - Dies at Leicester Station.

While on his way to Rutland, where he had been subpoenaed to testify in County court, Ira Morse of Orwell dropped dead on the station platform at Leicester Junction yesterday morning. Dr. McGibney of Orwell was in the station at the time and although he worked for some time over him Mr. Morse showed no signs of life after he had fallen. He was taken to his home in Orwell. The funeral will be held Saturday.

Mr. Morse was quite well known throughout this vicinity, at one time keeping a boarding house that was much frequented by fishermen. When he left home yesterday morning he was apparently in the best of health. His death was due to apoplexy. He was about 60 years old.

Besides his wife Mr. Morse is survived by three daughters, Mrs. L.J. Putney, Mrs. Clayton Munger and Mrs. Fred Kimberly and two sons, Charles and Frank Morse, all of Orwell.
