Sudden Death. Last Friday morning about 3 o'clock a.m. Mr. G.R.C. Stowell fell dead from heart failure. He had gotten up to take some medicine and as he was about to retire fell over on the bed and expired without a word of warning. He lived a few miles south of this city, was quite old, and had been badly crippled while in the army, for which he was drawing a pension of $72 per month. We were not personally acquainted with the deceased, and have been furnished no further particulars, and can only say "Be ye also ready."
