SUDDEN DEATH.

[From Odr Own Correspondent. J LAWRENCE, August 19. Mr Jonas Harrop, one of the oldest residents of the Tuapeka district, having been in business here since 1861, died rather suddenly from heart disease yesterday at noon. He had been confined to his bed for less than a fortnight, having caught a chill while watching a football match on the local recreation ground. Dra Blair and Withers were in close attendance, and hopes were at one time entertained that he would pull through, but on Friday he had a relapse, and thereafter gradually sank. Deceased had been a Justice of the Peace for many years, and was connected with nearly all the local public institutions. He leaves a wife and grown-up family.
