The following from the Thorntown Argus is the first intimation received here of the death of Rev. Empson Cory, who was graduated from Wabash College in the class of 1885 and who was very popular in Crawfordsville society during his college career:
Chester Cory, of Jefferson Township, has just returned from Wenonah, Minn., and Benton Harbor, Mich., where he had gone on account of the death of Rev. Empson Cory, at the first named place and his burial at the latter named. Rev. Cory was but 37 years of age and will be remembered by many, as he went form the vicinity of Shannondale to Minnesota about six years ago.
