North Hero

O. P. Knight is expected home this week from Chicago where he was called by the accidental death of his twin brother, Oscar Knight. Mr. Knight was killed while getting off a trolley car by being struck by a passing car. It was a great shock to the many friends of Mr. Knight here when the news came of his accidental death. He had lived in Chicago for more than 40 years and had made frequent trips to his home town and had anticipated such a journey this summer.
