Fatal Paralytic Stroke.

Mrs. Bishop Stricken With Paralysis While Going to Milk.


Mrs. Bishop, the wife of Mr. Asa Bishop, who has been for some time living on the John Stephen farm several miles south of town, received a paralytic stroke on Saturday evening and die in about four hours afterwards. She had started to the cowpen to milk the cow when she was stricken and fell helpless to the ground. Her children saw her and ran and told their father the cow had kicked their mother. When Mr. Bishop reached her she only spoke once, saying the cow didn’t hurt her, but put her hand to her head as if to indicate the seat of the pain. She was taken to the house and everything done for her that could be, but she died. Paralysis was the cause of her death. Mrs. Bishop was about 55 years of age and leaves a husband and a number of children.
