DIED AFTER SHORT ILLNESS.

Well Known Citizen Passes Away At P. & S. Hospital.

Frank Matthews, for a number of years a citizen of this county, living first at Kerens and later in Corsicana, died in the P. & S. Hospital at 7:30 last night after a short illness. He went to the hospital Monday afternoon, and not thinking his condition serious, he told the nurse not to let his relatives or friends know that he was there. Yesterday afternoon he began to grow worse and at 7:30 he passed away. Soon after death came the body was removed to the Sutherland undertaking parlor and prepared for burial, and later was taken to his family home on the Drane road a mile west of the city limits.

The deceased was born on Christmas day, 1868, and was 48 years old his last birthday. He was the son of Dr. T. M. Matthews for many years a prominent citizen of Athens, Texas, being well known in his profession and in Masonic circles over the State. The deceased grew to young manhood at Athens and at an early age went into the employ of the Cotton Belt railroad. For several years he was ticket agent for that road to Kerens, and later was promoted to the office at Waco. After leaving the employ of that road he moved to Corsicana and had resided here since.

Surviving the deceased is his wife and five children, two girls and three boys. He was one of a family of thirteen children, eight of whom are still living. The sister and brothers are Mrs. J. D. Seale, of Athens, and Dr. George Matthews of Nacogdoches, Tom, Will, John and Donald Matthews of Athens, Henry Matthews of Dallas, and Conrad Matthews of Corsicana.

The deceased, when in good health was a most capable business man and was by nature generous and kindly disposed, and had a large circle of friends, never failing to draw those with whom he associated close to him, and to make friends of them and to keep them his friends. Hence his sudden death came as a great shock and expressions of regret were to be heard on every hand today at his sudden and untimely death.

The funeral took place from the family home this afternoon at 5:30 with interment in Oakwood. Rev. Charles Oberschmidt conducted the services at the home and the Masons had charge of the last sad rites at the grave, and members of the order acted as pallbearers. There was a large attendance and many beautiful floral offerings were in evidence.

FUNERAL SERVICES SUNDAY AFTERNOON FOR J. H. MARTIN

PROMINENT CORSICANAN IS LAID TO REST IN OAKWOOD

Funeral services were held at the family home for J. H. Martin prominent Corsicana citizen for many years, Sunday afternoon at 2 o’clock, Rev. E. P. Kennedy, pastor of the First Baptist church, officiating, and with interment in Oakwood cemetery. Beautiful music was rendered by a quartette composed of Mesdames Albert A. Guess and Percy Townsend and Messrs. Edgar Metcalf and Loyd Kerr. A large concourse of sorrowing relatives and friends were in attendance at the home and followed the remains of this good man to their last resting place.

The floral offerings attesting the love and esteem in which Mr. Martin and his family were held were among the most lavish and beautiful ever seen in this city. They were sent not only from friends and loved ones of Corsicana, but many came from a distance. The flowers completely hid the grave from view and were banked high around all sides and were greatly admired for their beauty and design.

Among the out-of-town relatives and friends attending the funeral were Miss Mabel E. Horton of Wharton, a grand-daughter, who came down from C. I. A. at Denton; Miss Lizzie Martin, a sister from Fort Worth; Mrs. Myrtle Locke, sister of Mrs. Martin, from Houston; Mr. and Mrs. Roscoe Cook of Mexia; Mr. and Mrs. Roland Martin of Dallas, and Messrs. W. C. Proctor, Grover Jennings, Robt. Prince and Mr. Fields of the Magnolia Petroleum Company of Dallas.

Besides the many and beautiful floral offerings a large number of telegrams of condolence were received from over the state as well as from friends outside of Texas. These expressed sympathy in words of tenderness and aided materially in lightening the sorrow that has come to this home in the death of the husband and father whose tender love and care for so many years was the rock upon which the home was founded.

The remarks by the Rev. E. P. Kennedy, who conducted the funeral services were most tender and brought out the life and character of this man who had lived and labored so long and well. Being the son of a minister, Mr. Martin ever walked in the paths of rectitude and righteousness and lent his invaluable assistance to all good and worthy causes during the days of his life and the importance of his guiding hand will be felt in the years to come not only by the family he loved so dearly but by all with whom he came in contact. Truly a good and true man has gone to the rest and reward which his labors have earned for him.

Maddox had arrested Walter Earl at the Union Depot and started up town with him. After proceeding about two blocks shooting began and Maddox reeled and fell.
Earl ran, but was soon overtaken by Mounted Deputy Warren Bradley and arrested. He was not hit.
Officer Maddox got up and walked a few feet and was caught by friends as he was falling again. He was soon unconscious, but rallied while being carried home and recognized friends, saying: "I am done for." He asked if the man had been caught, and died in a few minutes after reaching home.
Six or seven shots were fired. Maddox was hit only once, the bullet entering the left side and striking the spinal column. Maddox had been on the force only five days. He has lived here twelve or fifteen years, was about 32 years old and married. Earl is from Freestone County, 28 years old and single.
