The people in town were greatly shocked Wednesday morning to learn of the death of Mike Cunningham who died very suddenly the night before at twelve o'clock. He had not been feeling very well for a few days, but had been up and around at work as usual. After going to bed he got up a short time afterwards saying that he felt as if he was smothering and passed away in but a few minutes. Death was due to heart disease. He was 51 years old and had been a residen of Vienna ever since the town started, being engaged in business here in the early day. He leaves a widow and eight children to mourn his loss. Funeral services were held int he Catholic church yesterday forenoon and remains interred in the cemetery there.
