Sudden Death
On the 4th inst., an old woman named Mrs. Chloe Maner, living in Bear Creek township, while sitting near the door knitting, fell suddenly from her chair, and was dead before anyone could reach her.  She was the widow of a soldier in the Mexican war, and for several years past has been kindly taken care of by Bryan Burroughs, Esq.
