John Carrick died suddenly at Lyndon, last Friday morning. Mr. Carrick had been canvassing this county for a book called the "Rumseller's Daughter." In Thursday he went from Danville to Lyndon. When he went to bed he did not feel well, but told the family where he stopping not to be frightened if they heard some noise in the night, as he was subject to colic turns. The people were alarmed, however, and called in a physician in the night. He died about nine o'clock the next morning. Mr. Carrick's home was in Groton.
