FROZEN TO DEATH NEAR GUELPH.
While on his way to join his wife at her mother's bedside, Joseph Lehmann, of Preston, lay down in a farmer's field, exhuasted by the cold, on Saturday night, and was frozen to death. He had tramped nine miles, from Guelph to near New Germany, and was within sight of his destination when he gave up the struggle. He wore a light overcoat, felt hat, kid gloves, and no overshoes. He had gone by train from Preston to Guelph, and intended to take the C.P.R., to within two miles of home, but finding the line blocked, he decided to walk with the mercury at 20 degrees below.
