Mr. Sides left Elgin July 2 to attend a reunion of his brothers and sisters. His health had not been. of the best, but he was not considered ill. Two letters came saying he was enjoying excellent health. On Wednesday of last week a dispatch was received stating he was very low. His son Albert left at once for Palmerston, and On Monday a letter from Albert said his father was out of danger, but that recovery would be slow. Half an hour after the receipt of the letter a telegram came saying he was sinking rapidly, and two hours later another one announced his death. It is supposed that he died of bronchial asthma.
