E. S. Duval, superintendent of bridges and trestles on the O. & M. Railway, fell dead at Mitchell at about 12 o'clock last night while walking from the telegraph office to the platform. Deceased was a picture of robust manhood and we are unable to learn from his most intimate acquaintances in this city that he was ever troubled with heart disease. His lively temperament, his kindness in dealing with those employed under him, as well as his admirable social qualities made him beloved alike by his brother officers and all others who knew him well. A large number of railroad men with their families from this city will go on Nos. 1 and 9 to attend his funeral which takes place at Mitchell tomorrow.
