      Mr. Benjamin Bock is Dead
      Providence Ba
      y

      Word of the sudden death of the late Benjamin Bock came early on Monday afternoon to this village; and it seemed impossible to believe the tidings. Mr. Bock had been in the best of health on the forenoon of that day,being busy in assisting to get his launch ready for removal to Providence Bay. He ate a hearty dinner and went up to the office at Mr.Riching's to post some letters. He sat down on a lounge, and upon inquiries after his health, said he felt a little tired, and in answer to further inquiries stated that he would be feeling better toward night. In a few minutes he slipped off the lounge and almost immediately the spark of life had fled. Mr. Bock was one of the early pioneers of Manitoulin and was universalla (sic) esteemed.
