Well-Known Indiana Statesman
Meets Ills Fate with a Smile. .
Indianapolis, June -22. Ex Senator
Joseph E. McDonald died' Sunday night
at 11;5 o'clock. AH day he had been
sinking and the end came quietly. Early
in the morning the unfavorable symp
toms of several days reappeared. During
the forenoon the suf
ferer had an attack of
vomiting, and Dr.
Runnells shook his
head dubiously. Mr.
McDonald had fol
lowed' every move
ment and when the
physician returned to
tils " bedside he in
quired, "Is that your
verdict, doctor?" 'Yes," said the physi
cian sadly. The announcement did not
disturb the patient's serenity at all. "Do
you contenij4ate the change with any
trepidation?" inquired the doctor. "Not
in the least," was the reply, with a smile.
During the day the patient s condition
continued to trrow more serious. He
could retain no nourishment whatever
and the little remaining of his former
st rength slowly ebbtxl away.
The Last Leave-Taking.
But consciousness never departed. Dur
ing the afternoon Rev. Mr. Milburn was
sent for and administered the sacrament.
Then. Mr McDonald called his family and
iutimate friends about him, and calmly,
serenely, as if the occasion were one ofthe
most ordinary kind, he gave directions for
his funeral arrangements and the dispo
sition of some of his personal affairs. In
the presence of all he said he wished to
give testimony to his faith in God's saving .
grace. Then he grasped each by the hand
and bade them good-bye, saying that he
could see no more callers. His auditors
thus dismissed, the dfing man surrendered
himself tt the care of his physician to
await the coming of the inevitable.
IT IS BLOWING OVER.
