      Found Dead by Wayside - Miss Annie Patterson's Sudden and Tragic Demise
      - The community was startled early Tuesday morning at the finding of a corpse by the wayside between Ayr and Greenfield. The ghastly discovery was made by Mr. Frank Beattie, who was hurrying to the station to catch the six o'clock train. He notified the people at the "Gore", who viewed the body and found it to be that of Miss Annie Patterson. Dr. Woolner was notified at once and the body was removed to the "Gore". The doctor pronounced death due to heart failure and was of the opinion that life had been extinct for some hours. An examination of the body and clothing failed to reveal any marks of violence or even a struggle. Dr. Verdon, coroner, Galt, was notified by telephone, and on learning all the facts decided that an inquest was unnecessary. It appears that on the previous evening Miss Janet Myers of Essex, who is visiting her brother at Greenfield, was the guest of Miss Patterson and about 8 o'clock started for Greenfield, Miss Patterson accompanying her to a point near the railway crossing. Here they parted company and it is surmised that Miss Patterson had been stricken very shortly after turning back. In falling the body lay a little off the beaten path and as the night was very dark, it was not observed by people who are known to have passed by at a later hour. During the night there was quiet a fall of show, which served as a mantle to shroud the prostate body. When found the key of her home was still in her gloved hand. The deceased lived with a sister, Miss Ellen and had just returned from a visit at Washington, where the sister was also visiting when the tragic event occurred. Miss Patterson was in her 55th year and was the eldest daughter of the late John and Jane Patterson. A brother and three sisters survive, viz., W. H. Patterson, Greenfield; Mrs. Wm. Kempthorne and Mrs. Geo. Easton, Washington, and Miss Ellen, Ayr. She was a member of Knox church and was widely known and highly esteemed. The funeral will take place from her late residence at 2 o'clock this afternoon, when interment will be made in the Ayr cemetery.
