Dropped Dead. Sad Episode at Rylstone. Mr. James Gately, of Dabee, Rylstone, one of the oldest residents of that district, dropped dead on Thursday last. The old gentleman was standing speaking to Mr. James Morrison. His horse, which was attached to a sulky, began to move off. Mr. Gately ran to stop the animal, and then got into the sulky. Just as he sat down Mr. Morrison heard a sigh and saw his friend fall forward. Medical assistance was secured, but life was found to be extinct. Only a few minutes before the sad occurrence the deceased had remarked to Mr. Morrison that he felt in splendid health. Deceased was a very old and respected resident, and the news of his death will come as a shock to many. To the sorrowing relatives we extend our sympathy. Mudgee Guardian, Monday 11 May 1914, p. 2.
