The people of the community were shocked Tuesday morning by news of the sudden death of J. R. Wyborny, who passed away at his home at Mona at 10 o'clock. He had not been ill, but during the night had complained of a pain in the chest, which was relieved by a hot application. In the morning he said he felt fine, ate his breakfast as usual and was about to look over the mail, which his granddaughter, Gertrude, had brought him, when-- for him time was no more. About two minutes later she re-entered the room and found him lying dead upon the floor. A physician was summoned and pronounced his death due to paralysis of the heart. Rev. Moe will conduct funeral services at the home Friday at 1 o'clock and at the Lyle Lutheran church at 2 o'clock. Interment will be made in the Woodbury cemetery.
