Death of FRANK A. OGILVIE.
Died April 17th, 1878
-- Yesterday afternoon, at about 3 o’clock, Frank Ogilvie was called from this earth to that bourne from which no traveler ever returns. He had long been lying at death’s door, and the summons ahs been almost hourly expected for some days. At the time of his death he was but 32 years of age—just in the prime of life. He had mapped out for himself a path he intended following, had laid well his plans; but man proposes and God disposes. His failing health warned him that recreation and change was necessary, and he planned a southern trip, which was upon the eve of consummation when he was stricken down. The immediate cause of his death was enlargement of the heart, combined with lung disease.
The time of his funeral has not yet been definitely fixed, but will probably be to-morrow.
