A man was found dead last Thursday lying dead beside the road a few rods west of Burdick station, as to whom an inquest held by Dr. Paramore elicited this information: he had been working at Laporte for Nickerson & Co., and started for Chicago with the Baptist church excursion the 23d. Being called on for his ticket he couldn't find it, and although asserting that he had one the conductor put him off at the next station, not relying upon his word. He found his ticket when the train was not scarcely 20 rods away, and started westward saying he would foot it to Chicago yet that day. No more appears to have been known of him until next day discovered down among the weeds beside the road upon the ground. He was a florid, robust man, five feet six inches high, and 35 years old; wore high shoes, brown pants, black coat and vest, and in his pockets nothing but a dollar and the railway ticket, the temporary loss of which had left him there, was found.
