|Mr. William A. Elder, foreman in an Altoona carpenter shop, started as a buggy, accompanied by a friend, Saturday last, to drive to St. Augustine, this county. Soon after arriving at their destination that evening, the gentleman named was taken suddenly ill, and died at 6 o'clock the following morning. Elder was about twenty-five years of age, and unmarried. His parents reside at Nineveh, but he had been making his home in Altoona for several years past, having learned his trade in that city.|
