DIED IN NEW MEXICO: Will N. DePuy, Formerly of This Place, a Victim of Heart Failure - The following telegram was received here yesterday and was a severe shock to the aged parents and many friends of our former fellow townsman.

ALAMOGORDO, N.M., Nov. 14, '11
To H. B. Whalley:

Will DePuy died to-day. Notify parents. Heart failure. K. of P. Lodge start with body Wednesday p.m. - L. R. Hughes

Another telegram came to-day with meagre additional particulars:

ALAMOGORDO, N. M., Nov. 15, '11

Bertha (Mrs. DePuy) left 3 p.m. Reach Chicago Friday, 10:45 a.m. Meet them there; she needs some one. Have Will Watson meet in Grand Rapids. Will was sick only a few hours. End peaceful. Stores all closed for funeral. Everything possible done for her comfort. Accept our sympathy. - C. M. Beecher

Remains of the deceased are expected to arrive here on Saturday and the funeral will doubtless be held Sunday. Mr. DePuy was well known and much esteemed throughout northern Michigan, and the entire community is saddened by the news of his death. Further particulars and a fitting obituary will be given next week.
