Find Aged Man Dead In Shack on Lone Farm.
James D. Clapp, 74, Expires in Building Five Miles East of Schreiber. Body frozen: Coroner To Make Investigation. When he did not show up in Schreiber from his
shack at Blue Jay, five miles East of Schreiber yesterday morning when he was expected an investigation was made and the body of James Dorland Clapp, 74, was
found at noon in a shack on R. Winters farm, frozen to death. Although the cause of death has not been ascertained, it is thought that the elderly man, died
of heart-disease and that his body froze afterward. How long had he been dead, when found is not known yet. Constable Harvey Blair, of the Nipigon Provincial
Police left last night for Schreiber, to investigate. Coroner C.N. Laurie will leave tonight to inquire into the circumstances. He stated this morning that,
if necessary, an inquest will be held. The late Mr. Clapp was a former resident of Fort William up until about 10 years ago when he went to Schreiber, where
he had been operating the Winters' farm during the summer months. He was in the habit of coming to Fort William to live with his son John, at 1018 Edward
Street, during the winter. Mr. Clapp, when in Schreiber, had resided at the Winters' home and yesterday was expected there to look after the house while
Mrs. Winters came to Port Arthur to visit her son, who is a patient in St. Joseph's Hospital. When he did not come in, Mrs. Winters became alarmed and
a hurried visit to the farm was made as it was thought that due to his advanced age, something might have happened to Mr. Clapp. During Mr. Clapp's
stay in Schreiber, besides his farm operations he had some interest in several mining claims about that district. According to reports he had been in
good health when last seen about ten days ago. John Clapp, son, stated today that he was expecting his father at any time to come here to stay for
the winter months. The late Mr. Clapp is survived by two sons, John of West Fort William and Percy of Edmonton. He was born in Thurlow, Ontario
and came to this district in 1898 where he has resided since. When he first came here he took up a homestead in Blake Township. He later followed
the carpenter trade. About fifteen years ago he was employed with the Street Railway Department here. He remained in that position for about five years,
after which he went to Schreiber. The deceased was a member of the Masonic Order, being a Master Mason in Madoc Lodge No. 48, Hastings County into
which he was admitted in 1878. Funeral arrangements are not yet complete. The body is expected to arrive in Fort William tomorrow

retired, resident of the Nolalu District, when his farm home was destroyed by fire Saturday morning, resulted in his death in Port Arthur General Hospital
shortly after 6 o'clock last night. Provincial Police are investigating the fire, details of which are meagre. All that was known here today was that Cowie,
who came to this district a few years ago from Western Canada, had been able to escape the burning house but in doing so was badly burned about the body.
Finnish neighbors nearby who saw the fire took Mr. Cowie to their house, and word was sent to the city. An ambulance and a nurse were sent to the homestead
about six miles in the bush from Nolalu shortly before noon Saturday. Mr. Cowie was placed in the ambulance and on arrival in Port Arthur about 5 o'clock
that afternoon was placed in hospital. A sister, Mrs. May King of Nanaimo, British Columbia is the only known relative. The body is at the Funeral Chapel,
299 Arthur Street, pending funeral arrangements.

Constable Kenneth Patterson of the Fort William office of the Provincial Police left this morning for O'Connor Township to investigate the death
of Gustave Cryderman, 80, found dead in his cabin one and a half miles east of Hymers over the weekend. It is believed the aged man's death was due
to heart disease. It is stated he had been dead for three weeks before a neighbor found the body which was frozen. Cryderman lived alone at the rear
of his lot. He had been seen earlier during the winter but his nearest neighbor, not seeing the smoke issuing from the cabin during the last few days
went there to discover the body. Cryderman had no relatives in this district it is stated. Mr. Teideman came to the area when it was opened. He had
taken an active part in the life of the community having been one of the founders of the Union Church and served on the municipal council. He was
predeceased by his wife seven years ago. Survivors are a sister and nephews in the United States.
