Obituary

Death Follows a Slight Fall

Alonzo P. Clough, aged 73 years, of Jamaica, was killed by a fall last week while at work building a shed adjoining his house. Mr. Clough fell a few feet from a ladder, striking on his head, which w s badly bruised and his jaw bone broken. He lived an hour, dying about the time that a physician arrived. Mr. Clough had suffered from an affection of the heart and this weakness may have hastened the end.
