    • Galt Man Who Died Identified By Brothers

      Detroit, Dec. 18 - Byron S. Vair, thirty-seven years old, who came to Detroit from Galt, Ont., a few years ago was found dead in an alley off Brainerd street near Cass avenue last night, but it was not until this evening that the body was identified by the two brothers, W. R. Vair and W. V. Vair, both prominent in Detroit railroad circles.

      Mr. Vair was formerly employed by the Grand Trunk, but had been in failing health for two years and unable to perform his duties. He was last seen on Wednesday afternoon, when he left home, saying he was going to call on some friends in the neighborhood where the body was afterwards found.

      The family declares that Vair's death was due to heart disease, but the Corner and a county physician have decided to send his stomach for analysis before rendering an opinion. The funeral will be held on Saturday.
