C., Junk 22, 1909 SALISBURY MOURNS. Death Lays its Cold Hand Upon one ot Salisbury's Greatest and Most Loved Clrizens. Rev. F. J. Murdoch, D, D., died in Charleston, S. C., early this morning, and the news of his death which greeted citizens as they left their homes and came down town, was received with astonishment and profound sorrow. It was pro bably not generally known that Dr. Murdoch has been in rather feeble health for seme time, hav ing been troubled with an heart affection. In the latter part of last week he, with Mrs. Murdoch, went to Charleston, he being call ed there on some matter of busi ness connected with the estate of his lately deceased brother. He was taken ill before arriving at his destination, and when he reached Charleston he was convey ed to a hospital where he received prompt medical attention and careful nursing. His condition for awhile on Saturday and Sat urday night was such as to cause much alarm to his family and his friends here. Frequent communi cation was hold with Charleston by telephone and just before noon Sunday. Dr. Murdoch wa3 able to go to the telephone in his room and talk to his daughter, Mrs. Chas. Bell, at his home here. It was the impression last evening among citizens generally that his condition was quite favorable, and the expressions were universal that he would soon be ablo to re turn home. But this was not to be, as the spirit of the loved and esteemed man took its flight about 1:00 this morning. The deceased was born in Bun combe county, N. C., in 1845 and was in his 64th year. He was or dained as deacon in the Episcopal church in 1868. In 1869 he was ordained to the preisthood by Bishop Atkinson. He came to Salisbury in 1870 as Rector of St Luke’s church and on next Sun day would have celebrated the 39th anniversary of his assumming the rectorship of St. Luke’s church. In a brief notice of this sort, prepared just as the paper is go ing to press, full justice cannot be done to the character, worth and ability of the deceased, and that must be left for a later issue. It is sufficient to say at this time, that in point of ability Dr. Mur doch had few equals and no su periors in the theological field. xn addition to tnis ne was a man of marked business ability, and his loss, in this particular alone, is a distinct personal one to all of his many associates. At the time of going to press arrangements for the funeral are not complete. The remains will doubtless roach here to-night when final arrangements will be made by the family . It is under stood, however that the funeral will be held to-morrow evening at 5 o’clock, and the interment will be in Chestnut Hill cemetery. The tenderest sympathy of the entire community goes out spon taneuously to the stricken family. WOODLEAF.
