Everyone was shocked this morning when the announcement was made that Mr. Fred Nash was dead.  Only yesterday he was out upon the street, and it seemed incredible that he should have passed away.  For some time, Mr. Nash has suffered a heart difficulty and this morning about half past two his wife awakened to find him suffering.  She arose to get him some brandy, but when she came back to be she found his features already stiffening in death.  She ran hastily, just as she was, in her night clothes and slippers, to Mr. Springstead’s for help.  On her way back she fell, breaking her leg just below the hip, but managed to crawl to the doorstep where she waited until assistance came.  Mr. Nash had been dead ten minutes.
