      DEATH OF MR. BOWMAN \endash

      The many friends of Mr. W.H. Bowman, CPR agent and assessor of Berlin, were shocked on Friday morning to hear of his sudden death from heart disease. He was returning from Waterloo on Thursday evening and having missed the last car, started to walk back shortly after mid-night in company with Mr. John R. Eden. When they got as far as Mr. Boutiller's residence, Mr. Bowman was seized with one of his periodical coughs. Opposite Mr. W. H. Bowlby's residence he sat down to rest and after a time he felt better and was ready to go on home. They had only proceeded a short distance, however, when he suddenly threw up his hands and fell over on the sidewalk dead. Deceased was about to leave on a trip to Gretna, Man., where his daughter Allie, Mrs. W.H. Tyson, resides. Mr. Bowman carried on the drug store business for many years and a few years ago disposed of it to Mr. A.J. Roos, since which time he has devoted himself to his telegraph, express and ticket agency business. He was of a kindly disposition and a friend of everybody. His funeral took palce on Sunday and was very largely attended. The services were conducted by the Rev, F.J. Steen. Deceased was 54 years of age and a widow and eight children survive him.
