Obituary

Perkinsville

Selden Nichols died suddenly at the home of his sister, Mrs. Allbee, about 6 o'clock Monday night. Mr. Nichols had complained for a few days of not feeling well but Monday forenoon he went to his work, chopping wood for A. T. Billings, but remained at home in the afternoon. He went to the post-office at night and did his work as usual, soon after which he fell from his chair and almost immediately expired.
