Thomas Allison Dropped Dead at Mt. Etna This Morning

Thomas Allison dropped dead on his porch this morning, at 5:30 o'clock, at Mt. Etna, just as he was entering the house. He was 88 years old. The gentleman had not been feeling well, but no one imagined his condition dangerous. Heart trouble is the cause attributed. We shall give an obituary next week.
