Thomas A. Hendricks Dies
Suddenly of Heart
Iniuanai'oi.is, Intl., Nov. 'J.. Vicc
Prositlcnt Hendricks died very sudden
ly nt liia residenco on North Tennessee
sticct, in this city, nt five o'clock Ihia
Mr. Hendricks returned from Ohi
cato on Monday siifferiiitr from a very
severe cold, but m condition was not
nch as to awaken fears for his safety.
Dr. Thompson, tho family pliyfiician
was called and tho patient insisted on
taking calomel. The physician rofu-ed
to givo this owing to tho prostrating
effect of tho drug upon Mr. Ilendticks
011 previous occasions. So ho gave
hint an emetic, and later in tho day an
injection. At night the Vice-President
had so much improved that ho and
Mrs. Hendricks attended a reception at
tho residence, of State Treasurer
Cooper, where they remained till near
midnight. During the entertainment
Mr. Hendricks was in personal appear
ance as well as usual, and none, bivo a
few to whom ho spoke about the mat
ter, supposed that ho was suffering
pain. Ho complained to ono or two,
however, that he was feeling ill, but
did not express any apprehensions of
fatal consequences, llo slept well dur
ing the night and nrosu this morning
iDparently refreshed and feeling hotter.
An hour or two later ho wa taken
with a ligor and despito the efforts of
tho attending physician tho forco of
tho chill remained unbroken for tpiito
an hour. Ilo was seriously prostrated
as a consequence, but the doctor was
not apprehensive of danger and he
engaged in conversation with the pa
tient on 8'iveral subjects, amonir which
was tho Vice-President's expected de
parture for Washington and the re
sumption of his duties as President of
JIAlti: ANXIOUS I1V HIS MCKNKSS.
Mr. Hendricks, however, appeared
to be oppressed by his sickness and
was very solicitous that Mrs. Hendricks
should bo always near him. If she
left the room for a moment ho inquired
concerning her, and appeared ill at easo
until she re-entered tho room. When
this disposition was developed Mrs.
Ilendiicks continued by his side and
was present during the visit of the
physician. A few minutes heforo !
o'clock Mr. Hendricks turned to the
physician and slid:
'1 am free at last."
"To what do yuii refer, ?" asked the
"I mean I am froa from pain," was
Tho physician then left the house
and Mrs. Ilendiicks was called to tho
parlor lo ee a friend. When the
caller was first announced Mr- Ilen
diicks hesitated about going down,
hut, being re-assured by the remark of
her husband, she left his bed
side and went to tho parlor.
Mrs. Hendricks was delayed longer
than sho expected, and when shu ie
turned to the room sho found that Mr.
Nendricks was dead. Tho end of a
busy and uvenlfiil life had coino peaoe
ably and quietly. On his faco there
was no indication of pain or suffering,
and his eyes were only half clo-cd, as
if in gcutlu sleep. Tl.i'ie was nobody
in his room when ho died, atrl only
Mrs. Hendricks, tho servants and a
caller in the house. Mrs. Hendricks
was almost distracted with grief and
could not restrain her feelings suffic
iently to talk, Tho house was soon
filled with anxious friends, while a
crowd collected around tho gate
and it was found necessary to rofuso
Tho physicians attribute Mr. Hen
dricks's deatli to paralysis of tho heart,
for had it been appoploxy thero would
have been some indications of it in ap
pearance of his faco. Ho complained
principally of his stomach, although
thero was. a nervous twitching of tlio
muscles of his face.
For several years Mr. Hendricks
had not been a robust man and was
subject to frequent "bad spells," as ho
called them, during which ho would
bo prostrated for days at a timo.
About two years ago ho was confined
to his room for several wseks by a
gangreneous affection of tho feet,
which at tho timo it was feared would
result in blood-poisoning, and it was
then thought that tho end of his lile
was noar lit hand, but ho apparently re
covered entiroly from this and was 111
his usual health, Whilo in Washing
ton during tho last session of Congress
ho was overworked end almost worn
out by tho pi ess of political matters,
and upon his return homo ho signified
his intention of laying snide nil public
business this Summer nnd devoting
the time to recreation. I to spent three
weeks at Atlantio City, lisliing, bath,
ing and yachting, anil thencamo West
and went to the Northern lako resorts,
and afterwards to tho Miami reser
voir in Ohio on n fishing expedition,
lie returned from Ihero two weeks ago
and at tho time said ho novcr felt bet
ter in his life. Last woek by spocial
invitation ho attended the fat-stock
show at Chicago and was the recipient
of considcrablu nilc ution ihero in tho
way of banquets and receptions, re.
turning homo 011 Saturday somewhat
Indisposed. At Iho veoeption lie- at

peared to beiiuisually oheerfil, aipl ro-
MII. IIKNimtCKS S l'HIVATi: MIT.
Mr. and Mrs. Hendricks had lived
in Indianapolis for nearly thirty years,
and havo been prominent in all repre
sentative social features of the city's
existence. Thoy had but one child,
who died when but throe years old,
when llioy lived in Shelby county.
For a long timo they had apartments
in hotels here, as Mr. Hendricks's ofiic
ial duties kept him in Washington much
of the time. Afterwards tiiey had a
residence in tho northern part of the
city, but 11 vo years ago moved down
town lo an old family residence di
lectly opposite tho Stato House, where
they havo since lived. They enter-t-iined
thiir friends frequently by put
ies and receptions, nnd wero always at
homo to those who called. It was
this that made Mr. Hendricks desci veil
ly so popular, for he and his wife
treated everybody cordially and court
eously, and those whoso positions in
li fo wero inferior wero always suro of
a kindly reception at his house.
His method of iiving was simple
and unpretentious. His house was un
old-fashioned etruclure, large, and
built so as to givo tho most room. It
was furnished richly, but in excellent
taste, and had a cheerful, homelike ap
pearance. When not engaged with
callers Mr. Ileiuiiicks devoted much of
his time to his books, and his literary
attainments were varied and general.
For years his services as an orator havo
been in almost constant demand,
and ho always had several addresses in
course of preparation on general sub
jects. Washington, Nov. 2.5. Tho Cabi
net meeting to-night was attended by
all the members except Secretary Man
ning and Attoi'ncy-uencral Garland.
It was decided that the President and
the members of tno C ibinet should a'
tond tho funeral of tho Vice-President.

A GIRL'S HEART.

feet, a dark straw lut ended iiei;lii:eiit-

draped about her decidedly statuesque
A scarlet shawl was the weakness
and the one pride of tho untamed and

with his task, his colorless nnd finely

brim of bis hat, his head bent perhaps
just tho least bit lower over his study.
I siy, Ant, maybe ho thinks you'ro
only fibbing,'' I began tcasiugly in n
discreetly subdued tone which was si
lenced by a sudden startling uproar in
a contiguous field where a score or
more cattle had been quietly grazing.
The animals ha 1 been leisurely near
ing tho stream and at tho moment, the
monarch of the herd had espied the
young man occupying tlio knoll beside
At tho uproar he aroso from his
campslool nnd glanced hiiniedly about
him. Behind was a treeless level, bo
low was a shallow and almost bankless
creek; and to gain our invulnerable
hedged vantage ground would be to
challenge thoso deadly horns already
lowered for the victim.
Ilowhu meant to cvado tho immi
nent peril, I had no timo to conjecture.
For at the instant Zettio impetuously
sprang for.vard, waved aloft her scir
let shawl, and scaled the hedgo liko a
young deer and in another second all
was over. With her while teeth set
fiercely, with tho rich bloom all faded
on her olivo cheeks, sho was again bo

Paul Shirley had clambered to our
safely barricaded placo and the ballled
animal was content to wreak its frenzy
upon tho scarlet shawl which tho dar
ing Zettio had dexterously tossed across
its very horn.
"We'll go back for tjjo berries now,''
sho said, a- sho hastily twitched my
jacket collar, and simiiltinoously di
rected toward tho artist such a look as
effectually checked anything compli
mentary or grateful which ho might
"Did you do that because you hate
him so, Zet V I inquired when wo at
length paused afler our unceremonious
withdrawal from the scene.
She responded with an emphasis
which was undeniable. Sho turned
with a frown, and had thoso immense,
magnificent eyes been dagger points. I
fancy I should not now be living to
tattle hor little romance to tho world.
"I never allow impudent boys to ask
mo silly questions," was her Bharp re
ply, accentuated by a resounding slap
upon each of my unoffending ears.
1 felt that my idol lial humiliated
me, that my tyrant had heaped tho lat
feather upon the alroidy too heayily
ladeu back of her patient camel and I
resolved to avoid Zeltie forthwith.
But Zettio was not so easily avoided.
Sho was ubiquitous ; shu was irresisti
ble, and in my infatuated boy way I
a lorcd her.
"I should liko to know why you aro
sulking (" sho said to mo one morning
when sho perceived mo peei ing through
tho pickets, festooned with Iho honey
suckles and morning glories which fill

through tho sprays of gold and azuro
Sho only shrugged her superb shoul
ders and laughed disdainfully.
"I could tell you something, but I
won't," I avowed spitefully. "And
maybe you would bo glad to knowhow
something dreadful has happened lo
Sho looked absently away, and thero
was not .1 gleam of curiosity nor any
sort of interest whatever upon her in
"Ho had no businesi to como here,"
sho presently said in her familiarly
"Ho could not help himself, and I
shan't tell you a word about him, eith

"Ho did something wrong so wrong
no could not stay whero he belouirs
and ho had to go somewhere. And
now ollicers have come for lnin I saw
them down in the village, and I heard
what they said and they will take him
back nud shut him up in prison."
Sho still looked absently away at
the lo' stone fenco half concealed in
eclantiiio white with blojm ; at tho
fantastic old collage, all peaks and an
gles of faded brown paint, embosso I

"Well, why doesn't hoin somewhere

As I dodged guiltily behind a con

sprung lightly to the ground, and pre
scuted her audacious self to iho arlist,
who was reposing on a gorgeous blank
et just within tho tent.
"I havo brought father's horso and
buggy, and father says you may come
to our houso and stay, oven if officers
aro hunting for you," nho announced
laconically and without ceremony.
He half arose, and for an instant ho
stared in black silence.
"If ollicers are hunting for me, Miss
Zeltie, they aro on tho wrong trail
thanking your fathor all tho same," ho
at length said with a laugh, which was
merry d"spite his nshy lips and fevered
For nn instant, something a gleam

Hashed liko tho glory of dawn over her
face ; but the next second sho was her
own inscrutably indifferent self again.
"You can stay, father sajs, until tho
fever is gone,'' she resumed shortly.
"Or perhaps our hou-o is not good
enough," sho concluded, whether with
irony or mortification I could not de
termine. "I will go with you, Miss Zctlie," ho
abruptly assented as he covertly and
curiously regarded the half averted
face. "But my tent and things must
go too, you know."
"O, father expects that," sho said
carelessly, but with such a peculiar em
phasis of tho substantive I suspected
the parental expectation- and invita
tions had boen improvised for the oc
casion, And then with an old commingling
of U12 saucy and the suhmissivr, of the
dignified and tho defiant, sho began
herself the not difficult process of de
campment. And presently tho art'st and his be
longings were snugly settled in tho
nondescript veh'cle, and Zettio was
composedly driving tho sober old horse
back to tho cottage among the morn
ing glories and the honeysuckles. -
Days elapsed, and somehow Zettio
kept herself invisible. Meanwhilo tho
ollicers had traced and securod tho fu-
citivo offender, who, despite the saga
city of tho gossij ing villagers, was not
ram bhirley. And that tho ertist had
become convalescent I had ascertaino.l
in my own fashion.
I was beginning lo yearn for tho en
livening companionship of my tyrant
once more, when ono morning sho
pounced upon 1110 as 1 was skulking
among tho eglantine of tho low stono
"What ails you ! What have you
been doing with yourself T ' she asked
not tin gently.
"Notlnnir ails me, I answered crofs-
ly. "Nothinfx ever docs. Only I am
sorry for a girl when a fellow cares for
her, nnd she lets him have somebody
else with no sense and no pretty looks
and no anything.''

and stopped beside her.
"Why are you crying, Miss Zettio 1"
ho questioned as ho plnccd a wonder
ing hand upon her bowed head.
Sho shivered and shook tho hand off
ns if tho touch hurt her.
"Is Ihero anything I can do for you!"
ho queried again and anxiously. "I
own a great deal to you, vonr wishes

"You will promise whatever I wish?"

"Whatever you wish I ill promise,"
he smiled. "And now I havo a riglit

"I desire you not to marry that gid

recklessly and finished in fuldmcon.
"Then you must marry mo yourself,"
ho said gravely.
"Oh, no," sho stammered, and witli

away. "Oh. yes," said lie, putting out at.
