Arthur Walker
Arthur Walker, who entered the Hancock County Home at Carthage a helpless cripple in 1885 as a boy fourteen years of age, died there November 15th after being an inmate almost fifty years.  His life was spent during his waking hours in a wheel chair and he was looked after in turn by other inmates of the home.  In order that he might be comfortable, a small screened house was built in which he rested and watched the activities which went on about him.  An elevator took him easily from him upstairs room.
