    Samuel Ball Passed Suddenly At Harvey

    Was in Fredericton Yesterday--Dropped Dead While Talking to Friend.

    Friends in Fredericton, Saint John and Harvey will learn with regret of the sudden passing at Harvey Station this morning of Samuel Ball, a former employee of the Canadian Pacific Railway.

    Mr Ball, who had not been in good health for the past few years, was in Fredericton yesterday the guest of Ernest A. MacKay.   He attended the morning and evening services at Saint Andrew's Presbyterian Church and drove home by automobile last night.   This morning he was on his way to the post office and stopped to converse with a friend, Clifford Messer, when he dropped dead.   Dr. B. H. Dougan was called as coroner and pronounced death due to natural causes.

    Mr Ball was a native of Hampton and lived for some years at Saint John.   For the past six years he had been living at Harvey Station and since the death of his wife three years ago he made his home with Mrs William Hunter, a distant relative.   He had no near relatives, a niece, Mrs Thomas Woodland, resides in Saint John.

    Mr Ball was about 68 years of age and had been employed by the C.P.R. for 48 years.   About six years ago he retired on pension.   While working for the C.P.R. he lost an arm in an accident and during the past couple of years had suffered several strokes.   He was a man of kindly habits, well known and respected and his death will occasion sorrow.

    The body is resting at the home of Mrs Martha Little, a relative of Mr Ball's wife.

    While in Fredericton yesterday he was apparently in the best of health and when leaving for his home last night, spoke of coming back again soon.
