Asher Harburger died very suddenly last evening of acute indigestion. Death comes almost without
warning. He had been down street on a business errand during the afternoon, returning home shortly after 5 o'clock. He took a street car at the post office, and transferred to a North Atchison car at Fifth and Commercial Street. The attack came on him at the post office, and when he transferred at the Fifth street junction he had to be assisted from one to car to another. A Globe reporter was a passenger and helped him to his home a block away when he left the car at Fifth and Kearney Streets. He complained of severe pain between his shoulder blades, but said he suffered similar spells and that he would be all right in a short time. Upon reaching home he grew worse and physicians were summoned. Dr. Charley Johnson and Dr. Bogle arrived a few minutes before death but he was in a bad state of collapse and died a few minutes after 6 o'clock. He was conscious until the end.
Mr. Harburger was 65 years old, and had just purchased a new home. In fact, his business downtown yesterday afternoon was in relation to his purchase if the residence property on Parallel Street, now occupied by Mr. and Mrs True Snowden and Mrs. Kittie Price. He had anticipated removing to a house of his own with a great deal of enthusiasm. He had not been entirely well for two weeks and a few days ago consulted a physician who was treating him for indigestion.
Mr. Harburger was born in Bavaria, Germany . He came to America in 1854 and located in Baltimore where he lived until 1877, when he removed to Centralia, Kansas and engaged in the general merchandise business. Ten years ago he retired and moved to Atchison, as his two sons Samuel E. and William were already here. He had been retired, as far as active business is concerned since coming to Atchison.
Mr. Harburger was married in Baltimore, February 8, 1869 to Fanny Oberndorf , who survives him. It is said that there was not a kinder husband in Atchison and he was in every respect an excellent citizen. A brother of Mr. Harburger died in Baltimore a year ago in almost precisely the same manner. Three sisters survive him two living in St. Joe and one in Richmond, VA. Mr. and Mrs. I. Cohen, and Simon, and Samuel Binswanger of St. Joe, and A. Oberndorf , of Centralia arrived this morning. Will Harburger came last evening from Kansas City, where he is now employed.
The funeral will occur at 2 p.m. to-morrow and will be in charge of the Masons. The burial will be at Mt. Vernon. No Flowers.
