SUDDEN DEATH.

On Sunday, Elizabeth Strand, aged 75, died very suddenly. The deceased who resided in Orange Street, Canterbury, had been to London on a visit, and returned on Sunday. She was met at the railway station by her daughter. When leaving the station she complained of being very unwell, and on reaching the “Rose and Crown” public house could go no further. She got rapidly worse, and died in a few minutes. An inquest was held on the body on Monday, when a verdict of “Died from Natural Causes” was returned.
