Tom Cashman Called By Death.
It is with deepest regret that we record this notice of the death of one of our pioneer citizens and fellow townsman. He was taken ill Saturday evening and succumbed about nine o'clock Sunday evening. The cause of his death is contributed to ptomaine poison.
Tom came to this country a number of years ago and settled on a farm southeast of here. He came to Cashion shortly after the town was founded and has been a resident every since. He had followed the carpenter trade for a number of years and of late had been in charge of the Arkansas Lumber yard during the absence of Mr. Short. He was a man whom everyone liked and we do not believe he had an enemy in the world. Not because it is customary at this sad hour to say kind words about one who has lately departed do we say this but because it is a fact; Tom Cashman loved his friends, remembered them and commanded the respect and admiration of all who were fortunate enough to know him.
