He Is Dead Now- Brantfird Ontario, May 27- The death occured last night under very tragic circumstances of Jno Galbraith a young dry goods clerk of this city. Galbraith had an engagement with a young lady names Miss Ethel Secord to go for a bicycle ride. He called at the lady's house on Usher St. about 8 o'clock in the evening and while she was getting ready to start he sat on the veranda in front talking pleasantly with the girls father "I see your not yet after the 24th' remarked Mr. Secord jocosely "Oh no I'm not yet" replied galbraith. Almost immediatley after he had spoke the young man's head fell forward on his breast and before Mr. Secord Galbraith was dead indeed. Deceased who was 24 years of age had been subject to heart trouble and was warned by his Dr. not to over exert himself. He had not heeded the warning however and had taken a long bicycle ride on the 24th. This with his ride to Secord's home is supposed to have hastened the threatened result.
