Obituary

Mr. John Ward died very suddenly last Thursday afternoon. His daughter reached home to spend the summer the day before; he had been about the premises with her some that day, sat down at tea time, ate his meal regularly, complained of a little pain, sat back, and died in his chair instantly.
