Sudden Death at Oxfoud.— Mr R. Perliam died very suddenly on Thursday afternoon, at about 4 o’clock. He had resigned his seat in the Road Board, and an election was taking place to fill the vacant seat. He drove down to the polling booth to record his vote, and when trying to get into his buggy he gave a heavy sigh, fell back, and expired. He had been suliering from heart disease for some time past.
