SUDDEN DEATH at a Temperance FETEOn Tuesday the annual demonstration of the local Bands of Hope was held. The Church of England Band of Hope assembled at the Bede House, and the Wesleyan Band at the schoolroom. A procession was than formed, which, headed by the Rushden Temperance Band, marched round the town, halting at intervals for the choir and juveniles to sing harmonies, conducted by Mr. W. Skinner. Having made the circuit of the town, they repaired to their respective places to tea, and in addition to the Bands of Hope each party had a good attendance of the public. After tea the outdoor amusements took place in Mrs. Chambers' home field. About seven o'clock when the holiday was at its height, a man named Samuel Ladds, of Rushden, was seen to fall as if in a faint. He was picked up and a conveyance procured, but before he was removed from the field life was found to be extinct. The deceased was about 61 years of age, and had been an invalid for the past five years, having had one or more paralytic seizures. The body was conveyed home, and as he had been under medical treatment an inquest was not deemed necessary. The sad occurrence cast a gloom over the rest of the proceedings.
