DIED SUDDENLY. Yesterday afternoon, at 2:30 o'clock, John Palmer, a well known farmer, living about eight miles south of Salem, was laughing and joking with his wife, at the residence of their son-in-law, George W. Anderson, on High street, when he suddenly clasped his hand to his heart, uttered an exclamation, and expired. Mr. Palmer and his wife had come in from the farm that morning and intended making an extended visit with Mr. and Mrs. Anderson. They happened to be alone in the house at the time. He had been suffering from serious heart troubles for the past six months, and his family expected him to die in just the manner he did; so, while his sudden end was none the less shocking to them, they were measureably prepared for it. Mr. Palmer was aged about sixty-four years, and came to this country with his family in 1870, settling in the Waldo hills. Several years since he purchased the Stump place, near the Ankeny farm, south of town, for $18,000, and has resided there since. 
He leaves a family of five sons and four daughters, of whom all but four--Mrs. Zach Taylor and Charlie Palmer, of Antelope, Wasco county, Mrs. Henry Clanfield, of Polk county, and Mrs. George W. Anderson of Salem--reside at home. He leaves his family well provided for. Mr. and Mrs. Palmer returned last fall from an extended visit to old friend and relatives in Michigan and Minnesota. The funeral notice will be found in another column.
