Deaths in This City From A Stroke of the Sun
Two persons employed on the improvement of the Pennsylvania Avenue died this afternoon from drinking too freely of cold water while their systems were over-excited by laboring under the scorching rays of the sun
Dennis Sullivan, aged about 25, a native of Castle Island, County Kerry, Ireland, was seized with apoplexy, produced by a sun stroke at 4 p.m. and died in two hours.
Michael Hone, a native of Ireland, aged about 60, became ill from the same cause at 10 a.m. yesterday while at work and died at 4 p.m. Both were temperate and worthy. [Washington Union, Tuesday.]
