SUDDEN DEATH OF AN OLD CITIZEN.
The report was circulated Saturday about noon that a man had fallen dead on the sidewalk in front of Mrs. Swayne's residence. Inquiry developed the fact that John FORDICE was the name of the dead man. Coroner Evans was notified and empanelled a jury of W. K. Alexander, B. A. Mikesell and J. W. Schafer.... The remains were taken home for burial. Mr. FORDICE was quite a fleshy man, weighing nearly 200 pounds, and was about 78 years of age. He had been a citizen of Jefferson County for many years, and for a long time was postmaster at Salina. He was a member of the Free Methodist Church and an exemplary citizen in all respects. In their bereavement the aged wife and the children have the earnest sympathy of many friends.
