‘Sudden Death at Laidley'
The death of Mr. Alex Campbell occurred very suddenly yesterday afternoon (our Laidley correspondent advised last night). The deceased was observed walking along the road, and the next moment he was lying prone. He was immediately carried to the residence of Mr. W. J. Cutler, but he passed away soon afterwards without rallying. Dr. McDowall was early on the scene, and ultimately resorted to artificial respiration without success. Death was due to cerebral hemorrhage, apoplexy, and heart failure. The deceased was 70 years of age, and had been a resident of Queensland for about 50 years. He had lived in Laidley for about five years, and was well known in the Murphy's Creek district, where he was engaged in farming for many years. He was an elder of St. Andrew's Presbyterian Church, Laidley. The funeral took place this afternoon from the church, where a short service was conducted by the Rev. Thos. Harvey, who also officiated at the graveside.
