SUDDEN DEATH

OF MRS. THOMAS ALLEN, ON DEPOT STREET

Mrs. Thomas Allen an elderly lady who resided on the corner of Third and Depot streets, received something like a paralytic stroke at 10 o'clock at 10 o'clock yesterday forenoon, which affected one side very severely. She entertained a peculiar aversion to doctors, hence no physician was called. A number of ladies in the neighborhood rendered such relief as they could, but in vain. Mrs. Allen died at about 9 o'clock last night. She had been in ill health for several months and had frequent spells of suffocation. Her prostration yesterday produced paralysis of the left side and she was speechless after receiving the stroke.
