Muncie, Ind., April 9 - A ride in a railroad coach over a poorly-ballasted roadbed of the Midland railroad is given by Dr. J. S. Coffman as the cause of the death of Mrs. William Manning, in this city.  The woman's death in the Van Winkle hotel is peculiarly sad.  Her husband is a bridge builder on the railroad, and, like many other employees, has been unable to collect his wages.  He started to Muncie from his home in Waveland to collect $100 due him.  Although he entreated his ailing wife to remain at hom , she insisted on coming to Muncie, and after arrival, was taken to the hotel, where she died.  Manning returned home heartbroken with the body of his wife.  He failed in his mission to collect the money. - transcribed by kbz
