But while was endeavoring to do his duty in this respect he did not neglect his ....[can't read] ....many sore trials yet be ? ? God.

Obituary: Died From Hemorrhage But the Cause of it Was Not Clear to Coroner's Jury Henry MORGAN, aged about 25 years, died very suddenly at his home in "The Patch" at Chicago Heights near Gillespie, about midnight Saturday. He was a coal miner, and unmarried and lived with a relative. MORGAN had apparently been in good health. There was tuberculosis in his family, but from all outward indications he was not suffering from it. Last Wednesday he was kicked by a mule, while at work in Mine No. 3. The injury was to his hip and he seemed to be getting along all right, expecting to return to work Monday. Saturday night he was found lying on his bed in a dying condition, apparently from a hemorrhage of the lungs. He passed away before a doctor could reach him. The coroner's jury were puzzled, after hearing all the testimony, and could not decide whether MORGAN died as a result of tuberculosis or the mule's kick and their verdict was merely that death was caused by a hemorrhage, the cause being unknown to the jury.
