Found Dead in Her Bed.

On Tuesday morning about daybreak, a colored woman by the name of Sallie Durham was found dead in her bed. Coroner Mull was soon on the spot and after a little trouble a jury was secured. After examining the other inmates of the house, the jury rendered the verdict to the effect that she died of apoplexy. She was about thirty-five years of age and unmarried. The death creates quite an excitement among the colored people in the neighborhood.
