While in an unusually happy mood, Lewis E. Harrell, 47 years old, a prominent farmer five miles northwest of the city, dropped dead at 9 o'clock this morning in his barn lot. Harrell had just finished the work of feeding his stock and was singing loud enough to be heard at the house. His daughter, Beulah, chanced to be near the barn and noticed him lying on his face in the mud and water.
When she reached his side, she found him dead. Heart failure is given as the cause of his death. Although Harrell had not been in the best of health the last year, he was feeling better than usual this morning. He had gone about his task in a cheerful disposition and was singing as he worked. He was digging a small ditch to drain the water from his barn when he suddenly ptiched forward and expired with his nose and mouth submerged in the mud.
The deceased was a son of the late John P. Harrell, a former county treasurer, and was born south of Smithville. His wife was formerly Miss Helen B. Mitchell. Two brothers also survive, Samuel Harrell, an undertaker, now of San Francisco; and Stacey Harrell, assistant cashier of the Citizens Loan and Trust Co. Mr. Harrell was a member of the Christian Church at Cleark Creek.
No arrangements will be made for the funeral until Samuel Harrell is heard from.
