      J.L. SPENCE DIED AT HOME HERE TODAY

      James L. Spence, age 64 years, died this morning at 5 o'clock at his home on north Drake street. Four years ago the deceased was stricken with paralysis from which he never recovered sufficiently to pursue his vocation. He is survived by his wife and three sons, Orbie and Clyde of Jonesboro, James of Monroe, La., two brothers, Joe and Jasper residing on farms south of this city and a sister, Mrs. Thorn of Thayer, Mo.

      Mr. Spence was an old resident of Craighead county and grew to manhood on a farm south of the city. Up to the time of his paralytic stroke he had been an engineer on the Cotton Belt railroad.

      Funeral services will be conducted from the residence tomorrow afternoon at 1:30. Rev. Hammond and King of Fisher Street Methodist church officiating with burial in the City cemetery in charge of J.B. Gregg & Son.

      The pall bearers are the following members of the B. of R.T.; Frank Smith, A.A. Goin, R.C. Cloyd, J.C. Marcom, R.R. Hortin and T.A. Howlett.
