Drops Dead on Street.
William Davis, a life long resident of Woodstock, dropped dead on the street about 8 o'clock Sunday morning. An affection of the liver is believed to have been the cause.
Mr. Davis, who would have been 68 years of age June 15, arose between 5 and 6 o'clock and after a light breakfast went out for a morning walk as has been his custom for years. He called at the hotel to buy some cigars and stopped at the garage for a chat with the men. He then started for home and when about 10 rods from his door dropped to the walk, dead.
Wlliam Davis lived in Woodstock all his life. He always enjoyed good health until a few days ago when he consulted a physician for a slight indispositon. His heart was found to be in good condition but there was a slight derangement of the liver. This is supposed to have become worse and to have resulted in his death.
He leaves a wife and a son, Harry E. Davis of Woodstock.
