Joe Price Dies from Heat in Peculiar Manner
Joe R. Price, aged 46 years, became a heat fatality when he died Wednesday of a heart attack as he took an icy bath in a tub at his home in Durant.
He died suddenly when he got into a bathtub into which he had chipped some ice in an attempt to get relief from the extreme heat.
J. R. Price, his father, was in another room and heard him groan and splash in the tub; when he reached him his son was dead.
Joe Price was a World War Veteran, was in the monument business in Durant.
Justice Sam Killebrew untied in marriage Henry Parsons, and Miss Lois Alexander Wednesday night at 11 o’clock. Both are well known young people of Caddo, and will make their home here. (Lois was my great-aunt)
