Died from Effects of a Fall

Delhi, 25 Oct. -- During a Police Court trial which was being held in the Council chamber above the Post Office today, the Magistrate ordered the constable to clear the room.

Constable McNally of Simcoe, in attempting to do so, pushed some of those at the top of the stairway. 

Mr. Henry Ryder, an aged and respected farmer living close to the village, was standing part way down the stairs, when he was pushed over by those above him.

He fell to the bottom of the stairway, striking his head, and died shortly afterwards.

An inquest will be held.
