Obituary

Will Investigate Suspicious Death

Nelson Royston and Marshall S. Bliss, two farmers living near Richford, died early Thursday morning probably from drinking wood alcohol, although there is said to be a possibility that it was alcoholic poisoning. One died about 2 o'clock and the other about 4 o'clock. Royston was about 40 years old and is survived by a wife and a daughter, Miss Anna Royston. Bliss was much older and is survived by a wife and several children.

A telephone message from State's Attorney Warren R. Austin, of St. Albans, says he will investigate the circumstances in relation to the death of Royston and Bliss at once.
