Salisbury, November 26.

Mr. William Alfred Broster, of Penfield, died suddenly while on his hay trolly at Salisbury last evening. He left his home, with his son, early in the morning, and went to Smithfield, and loaded his trolly with hay, which he brought to the Farmers' Union here. He helped his son to unload part of the hay, but was apparently too unwell to do much. It was not, however, till they were leaving at about 6 in the evening that he showed any alarming symptoms. He collapsed and died before the team had got more than a few hundred yards from the mill. Mr. Broster had complained of not feeling well for a day or two previously. No inquest wïll be held.
