Obituary

Wilfred Ostiguy, a well known farmer at Leicester Junction, died yesterday morning at the age of 72 years. Besides a wife he leaves three daughters and four sons. On Christmas day as Mr. Ostiguy was returning from church and while walking beside the road he was run into by a man on horseback, who it is said was intoxicated. Mr. Ostiguy was taken to his home and some three or four days after the accident he suffered a shock and has since suffered two more. The last one was on Friday of last week, since which time he has rapidly failed until his death yesterday. The man who ran against Mr. Ostiguy has left for New York state.
